More Random Ramblings

I could give you a ton of reasons as to why I have not been blogging as of late. Probably the main one being I have had 3 teeth extracted in the last month, 2 of which left me in pain and on drugs. Thank God it is all over and done with.

A few weeks ago Chris and I finally got a Costco membership. I am not sure really why it has taken us this long to go and get one. We are now officially Costco addicts and spend A LOT of time there. Some of the prices there AMAZE me. Take a 2 oz tube of Hydro-cortisone cream for example. At the grocery store, pharmacy, drugstore or wherever ONE generally costs anywhere from 3-4 dollars. We got a 4 pack of them for 6 dollars at Costco. I could go on all day about the savings we have gotten there in the short time we have had this membership but I won't cause I think you get the idea. Moral of the story.....I LOVE COSTCO!!!

Last week as Chris and I were heading out somewhere we noticed a rather large rock looking thing in our yard. At first glance that is all I thought it was-a rock. At second glance it looked more to me like one of those fake turtle ornaments for your garden or whatever. Upon closer examination we both realized it was not a rock or a fake turtle but in fact a real turtle who happened to have met it's demise on our lawn.

Now the first thought we both had was where in the heck would a turtle this size have come from. Our landlords son claimed they lived around here and in Jamaica pond. Chris and I both know that was not possible considering how far Jamaica pond is from us it would have taken a turtle FOREVER to walk that far. Turns out it belonged to the people who live 4 doors down. Our landlord told us they "lost" a turtle about 2 months ago. HOW DO YOU LOSE A TURTLE??????? It's not like if you open the door it can run away, I am pretty sure you would notice. Knowing how they are though, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. And don't worry, Chris gave it a proper burial in our garbage can;)

Hope everyone is having a good week

Oh gosh! Yvonne. The turtle. I am laughing SO hard. I mean, almost wetting my pants. Ok maybe truly wetting my pants. How stupid can you be to LOSE a turtle? Friggin idiots!

My brother had a pet turtle when he was little and it ran away! Ha! I don't know how that can happen, either, but I'm here to tell you that it can!

I hope you talked to the owners before disposing of the little guy. As for Costco, INDEED it is a great place to shop. We only do our big purchases there though. However, Jeremy bought a big box of 640 baby wipes from there the other day for only $15. What a deal:)

That's not cheap for baby whipes.
