Longest Post for Me I think-but it is all good!

I know 10:38a.m.
and 
I'm just posting for the say?
What can I say?
It's been a long busy week
 and I was sooooooooo
very tired this morning so,
I slept in
 {*gasp*}
 I know-but I'm usually up at 6a.m.
so I am gonna say that this is okay for today
 ; )
{wink with me}

Today is
Family Fun Filled Friday
and I am so excited
Remember last week when I said that we had some
issues?
Well, our transmission was not working right on our car
we were thinking that we would be looking at rebuilding our
trans; not a pretty picture for finances!
I have yet to find anyone that has woke up one morning and said:
"Ahhhhh....what  a beautiful morning
I hope that my transmission in my car goes today
so that I can spend $1,500-$2,000 dollars in my
savings account to pay to fix it.
That would be so exciting!!!!"

So we were not too happy but knew that the Lord had a purpose and a plan.
We took it to our "favorite" automotive shop
they looked at it
and found out that the computer in the car had gone bad.
WE WERE SO THANKFUL THAT
THAT WAS THE ONLY PROBLEM!!!
So instead of look to spend 1,000-2,000 dollars it cost around $400.00!
The Lord is just too good to us!!
We should be going to pick up the car today
I've missed my car.....a lot
but having the larger car for the week was a benefit yesterday
especially with the groceries I picked up!
I got 30-2liter bottles of diet soda
30 boxes of Pillsbury "bake me" sugar cookie's
2 Gallons of Milk
for
FREE!!!
{One of my favorite words!!}

I still have $6 in Catalina's to spend on anything I want at the store as well:)
The Lord is just too good!!
***
If you have an Acme by you-their A&W brand is on sale 5/$4.00-makes it 80 cents apiece.
On the bottles I found $1.00 off 2 making it 30 cents apiece!
I had $12.00 in Catalina's to spend so I used $9.00 of it to get me enough soda to last through most of the year until next time they have the sale : )
If you know me
you know I buy enough for 6-12 months worth
because it is smarter to have it when it is on sale
then to buy it when it is full price!
{and that is my saving tip for the day}
Be sure to enter in the $35 CSN giveaway!
Have  a wonderful Family Fun Day!!
I know I will : )
I am linkin up to a few places for today...
