.77 cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Akila just came running down the stairs excited because Hom Furniture is running a commercial, all their furniture costs just .77 cents. Run to the stores people. Call all your friends!!! My foot is out the door.

I was explaining to her that it was probably not the case, and she was adamantly disagreeing. So I pulled it up on the internet. It is 77 cents to the dollar. Put your car keys down. I was trying to explain that just means roughly 25% off. She dazed at me.

She went back up to watch more Deal or No Deal, and just came back running down again yelling something about a warranty and you don't have to pay anything. I explained that means you don't have to pay anything when you pick it up, but you will be billed later for it. She is getting really mad at me for bursting her bubble. She was hoping for a new dining room table so we don't have to sit on folding chairs anymore. Would have been nice.

I hate commercials. We do not have cable and rarely watch anything but PBS. I have had a lot of fun trying to explain to her that your hair doesn't really look like that if you use that shampoo, or you don't really lose weight by taking those pills, etc.

On another note, we have been having a good week since stopping that new medication, thank goodness!!!!! We have still had rages and issues, but nothing like the three weeks on the med. I am very thankful, the Lord has answered our prayers. I was not sure if we could handle another week like that. He does know our limits and for that I am thankful.

Glad she is off the medication- the wrong med is worse then no med! If you DO find 77 cents chairs, pick me up a few (two of mine went down in rages).
