Random Thoughts Thursday 105

  • I love magnets, especially photo ones. I was asking my snister on Tuesday if she had seen any Shutterfly coupons so I could order some. She found a small coupon, and I was going to use it Tuesday night, but was up past midnight helping Steven paint (see more below) and didn’t get to. That turned out to be a good thing – she sent me this coupon for ten free magnets on Wednesday!!!! SCORE!!! I still had to pay shipping of course, but it saved me over $60.

  • All the attic Kilz painting is done. Yay! Steven did all the painting, and I was “ground support” – getting things, moving the equipment, making sure we didn’t paint the carpets/walls, etc. It was SUCH a hard job for Steven. He painted the undersides of the joists Sunday and Monday, then did the tops Tuesday night, which involved crawling around in the attic.


  • I also helped clean the equipment after using it. Our friends let us borrow their air paint sprayer and there are so many parts and pieces! I channeled my inner Rey and scrubbed, scrubbed, scrubbed, ha ha.


  • I am bummed these major house projects are taking place during the Summer Olympics. Even though we don’t have antenna or cable, I’d still have liked to find a way to sit on my bum and watch a lot of sports! Instead, I am just reading highlights and watching the small clips I find and texting friends about it. My favorite memories of the last two games (winter and summer) are “watching” it with Gina and texting each other our reactions and commentary! At least I can wear my Olympic shirt and show support in spirit (only, not really, because the stuff we’re doing in the house will ruin it!).

    I was so excited about the shutterfly coupon too but man, their shipping charges are exorbitant! It’s still a good deal but it always wows me. Guess that’s why they can give away so many freebies though!

      Yeah, they always charge PER for magnet, which makes me nuts, since I know the cost is not that high! So this was still a huge savings, since you would have paid for the magnets PLUS shipping.

  2. It looks so clean and fresh now!!
    Its a shame you aren’t getting to watch it, I’ve been staying up too late watching it. I’m excited to breakfast and watch the womens marathon this weekend.

    Oh man, if they have this deal after the end of August you can get 10 (or probably 8) nearly identical swim selfie magnets!

  4. Love your magnets! I like them too but mine of more of places I’ve been to. I did not know Shutterfly makes picture magnets.

    I didn’t know such kind of magnets.
    At home I am always ground support!

    I’ve been staying up way too late watching the Olympics, and going to bed wired because I’m all jazzed up from watching swimming…but hey, it’s been fun to get into the games for a change. Sorry you’re missing so much of them. 🙁

    House projects… we have a few this year, including staining a deck and having our kitchen floor tile repaired. I’ve not watched hardly any Olympics at all. I catch the clips and highlights the next day.
