I had a goal to have the Christmas card done this weekend. I had an incident with our photo program about 2 months ago, where I had (what turned out to be 10,993 photos) photos in limbo that I could not find. You see, we replaced our Kodak Easy Share printer (don't buy one, they are horrible) with a lovely Epson Work Force 630 (I could kiss it and tell it how nice it is to me). When I removed the Kodak printer out of the computer, it decided to take all of Kodak off and took my Easy Share camera software with it. That is the software that I use with the Nikon and I had years of photos (many on disk, but not since last Christmas!) that I just could not find after the program decided to take hostages with it.
I was hating on Kodak Easy Share anyhow, but that really ticked me off.

:side note: Yes, Aunt Patti, I know your fondness of the letter. I tell you, I got quite a whisker lickin' for the letter last year as I had three women at a family dinner tell me about how depressing my letter was. It wasn't my aim to list depressing things and have people all funky about them. My aim was that though crappy crap happened, we were all taken care of, everyone is well and all is good. Besides, Grandma was dying and I wasn't as chipper as I usually am. Still, I had people give me a very hard time. Sheesh.
Now that I have Aunt Patti's note all handled (hi, Aunt Patti!!!), I shall share with you the dealie-do of the day. I purchased 65 cards. Of those 65 cards, I had 50 + shipping provided to me for free from Shutterfly for blogging about their Holiday card selection. I had no problem doing that, of course. Then, when I received K-'s school photos, there was a $20.00 code for Shutterfly included in there. On the remaining 15 cards, I was able to apply the 40% discount sale that they are currently running and the $20.00 credit, which left me a balance of $7.05 for a little over $200.00. Hubs was impressed. His second question was, "Do people really spend that much for their cards?" "Yes, there are some. I'm not one of them." My sister told me that I was her hero. God bless her.
I'm now left with a bathroom to clean and laundry to fold and! to put away. Hubs has been quite the man today and in Mike Holmes style, he pulled the entire dryer and lines out, cleaned them all and put everything back together. The dryer is running so much faster now. It really needed a good clean-out and Hubs spent a few hours doing an awesome job. Now he's tidying the basement. What a man!
Dinner is in the crock pot and if you'll excuse me, I have a date with a toilet bowl brush.
Have a wonderful day!
