It Pays To Wait & Make Way For Ducklings

May 19th, 2009 at 06:15 pm

Last month when I transferred my prescription to Tom Thumb to get the $30 gift card, I received a $25 check from Walgreens which would be good if I transferred a prescription to them. So this past weekend I transferred the same prescription back to them and had the check validated.

I debated about using it today or tomorrow, and came **very close to waiting. But, I didn't.

What did I find in my email box when I got home? An email from Walgreen's saying that on Wednesday or Thursday if you spend $25, you get $5 off (using the coupon included in the email.) Argh!!!

I couldn't have used it anyway, since my printer still isn't working. It's just the thought though - if I'd waited one more day and my printer was working, I could have saved another $5, so I'd have gotten $30 worth of merchandise for free.

Ok, another video from one of my favorite pick me up blogs. Big Grin And funnily enough, it relates to one of my favorite children's stories, Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McClouskey.

Thanks to my book blog, I have received a free children's book! It arrived in my mailbox this weekend, and I read it while I was waiting to go in to my friend's daughters ballet recital. Adorable!

(My friend's daughter is graduating from Kindergarten on Wednesday night. I remember feeding her with a bottle when she was just a few days old! Time flies!)

I'll be reviewing it on my [url="http://www.childrensbooksforstorytime.com"]Children's book[/url] blog - it should be posted in the next hour or so.

    I LOVE MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS!!!! I thought EVERYONE knew and loved that story, then one day I said to BB "make way for Duckling!" (meaning me, as I got into his lap for some R&R) and he looked at me like I had 2 heads. He had never heard of the story!

    One of the ducks was stolen recently in Boston. It happens every once in a while. They found him though. Smile

    How funny! I too feel like Make Way For Ducklings should be required reading. Smile


    Oh my! I'm glad the duck was returned. Smile

    No, Holy Cuteness isn't my blog. Big Grin I just seem to be linking to it a lot from here. Big Grin I just have the three blogs - this one, Living Frugal and Children's Books. (linked in my sidebar.)
