Random Tuesday Thoughts - Bargains and Movies

Stacy Uncorked is still on a blog break but I'm continuing on with Random Tuesday Thoughts.  And, now on to this week's randomness....

I mentioned in last week's RTT that I was excited to see my boys dressed up for Homecoming.  Didn't happen.  The event was cancelled due to a possible ice storm.  The storm never happened and neither did Homecoming.  Guess there's always Prom.
I don't shop at Wal-Mart unless absolutely necessary but I went in for their after-Christmas specials and fared quite well.  Rolls of wrapping paper were only 61 cents each.  And got my Christmas cards for next year at K-mart for less than a dollar.  Double store score!
I spent a couple of hours in the ER Thursday night.  Had severe radiating pain at the base of my neck and down my arm.  The diagnosis was severe muscle spasms.  The cause is unknown.  Just what I need, something else to add to my list of health problems.
Saturday afternoon we hung out with another couple and watched movies.  I love hanging out with them.  I can be laid back, and we can have fun doing whatever.  We ended up watching Alice Through the Looking Glass and The Legend of Tarzan.  Both were eh, okay.  Didn't hate them, didn't love them.

My work always hosts an after-Christmas holiday party.  This year it was at Thyme Square, a local eatery.  It's the one time a year we get together and pretend we're all besties.  The food was out of this world.
Welp, that's been my week.  What randomness have you got?
Seen any good movies lately?
Score any after-Christmas specials?

I love after Christmas sales too. I hope you feel better with the muscle pain. I have a heat pack on my shoulder right now for pain. For me (because I am way older than you)... getting old sucks.

That sucks about Homecoming. We've had off Monday and Tuesday due to ice. It really wasn't that bad. My kids had off Monday anyhow because of MLK day.

I hope you start feeling better. Going to the ER isn't fun. The bill isn't fun either.

Darn the weather and darn the random aches of being over 30!!

I got a good deal at Hot Topic.com a few days ago--$30 off a $60 order. Thanks, retailmenot, for that awesome coupon code! Gotta love stores that want to get rid of everything after Christmas :)

There is nothing like a good bargain.

I love shopping the after-Christmas clearance for wrapping paper, but I go to CVS. I probably have way too much wrapping paper.

I lucked out and walked in Target just as they were marking the Christmas stuff 90% off,,got a ton of gift cologne sets that weren't supposed to be there and were so they had to give them to me at that price,,
