What's on My Mind Monday

Linking up with Carissa today.
Miscellany Monday @
lowercase letters
I.  I attended a coupon workshop a couple weeks ago at my church.  Mikey, from Jeweled Crown facilitated.  She did a great job.  I learned a lot about the crazy world of couponing, and left feeling challenged to give it a go.  Pat and I did our biweekly grocery trip on Saturday and saved $11 using coupons!  Including price matching, we saved more like $15.  Not a lot, definitely not "extreme", but we only got things we were going to buy anyway, so that's $15 that stayed in our pocket checking account!  We were pretty excited about it.

II.  Our garage door is on the ground, and has been since Saturday afternoon.  For some reason, when I think about that, I get "Pants on the Ground" stuck in my head, except that now it goes:
  G'rage door on the floor
  G'rage door on the floor
  Looking like a foolish-woman-that-paid-way-too-much-for-this-piece-of-junk-house with your g'rage door on the floor.
I never was all that great with lyrics.  When I ad lib with Madi's nursery rhymes, "girl" always rhymes with "world", and "you" goes with "boo".  Oh, and that one time, "beautiful" rhymed with "beautiful".  Not one of my shining moments. 

III.  I'm re-re-reading Ender's Game right now.  It's definitely still a favorite.  Since I was too cool for school, I never read it until a few years after I graduated.  I wonder how many other required readings were actually good books? 

IV.  Am I the only weirdo that puts mini marshmallows in my ice cream?  When I did that at my parents' house yesterday, you would have thought I put cheese on my breakfast cereal for the reaction I got.

Happy Monday!


  1. Good book choice! They're making it into a movie too!

  2. There were lots of good reads in school: The Awakening, The Yellow Wallpaper, Jane Eyre etc...

    I put mini marshmallows in my rice crispies for breakfast :)
