>Amazon Treasures

>I love Amazon.com!

Lately, I found that you can get almost anything from Amazon. (and don’t forget to use the link on the Friends of the Library page when ordering your treasures! When you do, the Friends receive about %5 of the sale!)

Speaking of the Friends, they purchased a new laminator for the library – from Amazon. The price (for the same laminating machine) was remarkably less than we found it from other vendors, plus it qualified for FREE shipping!

The laminator arrived today much to our delight. My co-worker and I were dancing around like two giddy little girls who got their very own ponies for Christmas.

Other treasures I found on Amazon (but didn’t order) are snow blowers, pickled cabbage, and dog food. You know how sometimes you can find used stuff on Amazon for a bargain? Well, there was that option for the dogfood, but I don’t think that would have been much of a bargain. *shudder*

Recently I upgraded my phone and received a $100 rebate card. I was totally disappointed in the rebate card because I was expecting a check I could just deposit back into my account. I tried to use the rebate card in some stores but for some reason it didn’t work! So, naturally, we thought, why don’t we use it on Amazon! So, today I ordered a textbook for my fiance, a flame thrower and a Stargate DVD. All with the free 2-day shipping! I can’t believe that by next weekend I’ll have a flame thrower and a DVD of one of my favorite movies! I feel that giddy little school girl scream working it’s way up. aaaaah!

Best of all… since I ordered a movie, they gave me a promotional coupon for $5.00 off eligible TV show seasons. I went and looked to see what was available and OMG! I can’t decide which to get. Should I get Hercules – The Legendary Journeys? Xena – Warrior Princess? Warehouse 13? I just can’t decide! I have a few weeks before the promotion expires so I’ll think about this one for a while.

So far the New Year is starting out totally AWESOME!

>It’s Twenty-Ten!

>A new year, a clean slate.

Wish I could say the same for my driveway…
Right before Christmas we get this huge snowstorm then we get freezing rain on Christmas day. The snowplows still went out on Christmas day but I wasn’t home in time to shovel the big mess at the end. By the time I did get home, the end of my driveway was completely blocked shut with a huge mountain of ice.

I bought an ice chipper and was out there chipping until my arms were rubber. I salted it so much I’m afraid that there isn’t going to be anything left of my driveway when the ice finally does go away. But still, 2-weeks later there’s still a cliff at the end of my driveway.

Good thing I have a Jeep – my Honda Civic has been sitting in the garage since the first storm.

I did purchase a snow blower so that the next snow we get I’ll at least be able to move that. I’m tempted to purchase a flame thrower to melt the big mess at the end. I”m afraid that will be there the entire season if I don’t get rid of it soon. My poor Honda will have to spend the winter in the garage. My poor wallet – forking out the money to pay for gas for my Jeep!
