My doorstep moments ago. There is nothing fun inside.
I have Billy Madison's voice running through my head, "Back to school...back to school...to show my dad that I'm no fool."
Gosh, I love me some Adam Sandler.
Why is this song running through my head? Not because a 3 day weekend is winding down. Not because the 3 day weekend coupled with two snow days meant that I've only worked 1 out of the past 5 days (but who's counting). The reason why it's popping up on my mental shuffle is because I am going back to school tomorrow.
Grad School that is.
How am I getting there you ask?
Why, I'll be riding the bitter bus to campus. On a scale of 1-10, my excitement level is currently at -5. Yep, that is negative 5. I'm just not feeling it.
Don't get me wrong. I totally hearted college the first time around. Heck, I even enjoyed my initial grad school work down in sunny Florida.
But, I was not employed.
Nor did I have 3 wee ones underfoot.
And I'm pretty sure nobody is going to be asking me to pledge their sorority or inviting me to a keg party tomorrow.
I'm sure by now you're thinking "quit your whining" and "what's in it for me?" Followed by, "your title said there's something in it for me." Keep reading...
Well, with grad school come textbooks.
And they come at a cost.
And to add insult to injury there is sometimes a shipping charge too.
Sure, Amazon.com offers free super-saver shipping, but it is slow.
And I don't know about you, but I've got a bit of Veruca Salt in me and, "I want it now!" However, I'm also cheap and I don't want to pay for faster shipping.
So I don't. And you don't have to either with this handy dandy tip. Just sign up for the Amazon Mom's Club and you'll receive a free 3 month membership to Amazon Prime which gives you super fast and free shipping.
Amazon Prime is a membership program that gives you and your family unlimited fast shipping, such as FREE Two-Day shipping and One-day shipping for $3.99 per item on alleligible purchases for an annual membership fee of $79. Eligible customers can try out a membership by starting a free trial.
So there you go. A little tip on saving time and money for taking the time to read through my whining. I'll post the "Share the Love" links tomorrow along with the winner of the comment drawing. You can still win the Valentine Unit if you are in the gambling, love-spreading mood.
And now I need to brush up on my hackey sack skills and buy me a Trapper Keeper. I'm going to college tomorrow.
