Its funny how God works . Oh this story doesnt have anything to do with cards… well on the fringes it does but i wanted to share this story because… its just so cool. 😀  About a month ago they had this mcdonalds monopoly game. I pulled one off of our drink cups (God bless my mother, she drinks about 10 cups of large black coffee a day) and got a $5.00 instant win walmart gift card. So you had to go online to redeem it and they said that itll come to you in the mail.  Well Lord knows a million things happen since then and i totally forget about it. Fast forward to today… OHHHHH my goodness it was a day from the devil himself!  my boss is a real…………meanie… to put it nicely.  The woman seriously cant go to the bathroom and wipe herself without me helping pull down her pants and wipe her butt for her… (think cinderella’s  evil stepmother and youre close to seeing my boss).  ANYWAYS, the woman was extra mean to me today.  THEN on the way home  i had this really nasty person (had to double check it wasnt my boss) seriously stay one INCH away from my bumper, then pull back, then RUN back up to one inch from my bumper… omgosh it was all i could do to keep from slamming on my breaks and throwing that person … well anyways, i kept saying to God “ok, God dont let me do that”. I mean im not an angry bitter person… but id had a hard hard day and that person behind me just nearly sent me over the edge. I get home and my mom’s in a bad mood and she gets on my case becasue she’s also had a hard day. oy. and she’s not like that.

Ok so back on track with the story…. ive had one of my all time favorite movies of all time in my purse for days  now because i bought it brand new  and it was scratched so it wouldnt play right. What movie? Iorn Man 2! Yes you DO see his auto down below there dont ya???  😀 😀 😀   LOL   So we figure we dont want to make dinner because we had such a bad day. So we go to a burger joint  and were in the die-thru … oh i mean … DRIVE -thru and there’s a MILLION cars waiting in line. Seriously takes us 15 min to get thru  the drive thru.  While were in line i look at our mail. I notice an unmarked envelope and open it and it IS…….. my $5.00 walmart card!  YAY! so while were sitting there i call the number and activate it.

We eat dinner in the car and i remember i have to take my dvd back to walmart.  There happens to be a walmart in the same parking lot as the burger joint. So i go there and i go to the back where they have the dvd’s and they HAVE IT!!!  ONE… yes ONE  copy of the two disk special edition dvd of iorn man two ( with the digital copy and all the cool extras?) 😀 😀 :D!!!  YAY!  I didnt have the special edition in the  first place. When i first went to walmart to get it, i went to  another walmart and looked all over and they didnt have the special edition, only the normal dvd.  So i brought the normal dvd back to return it … but i kinda hoped that they would have the special edition and they DID!!! X-D  So im walking back to the register to switch it and i remember i dont have any money on me ( its the day before payday and i spent all my money on dinner). 😦    BUT then i remembered that $5 walmart card i just got!!! 😀 😀 😀   So i asked the guy if i could exchange the other regular dvd for the special. he said that was fine i just had to pay the difference… which the $5 card paid for!!! LOL!  Thank you God! So this lady is a happy camper tonight… has the special edition of Iorn Man 2 and Robert Downy Jr’s auto. XD AHHHH!!!!  so it got me thinking how wierd it is that life is kinda like a puzzle, ya know?  God makes all the pieces fit perfectly.  I wouldnt have been able to get the nice dvd had i not had the scratch on the first one, and i wouldnt have been able to get it had i not had the $5  gift card that we won from my mom’s micky d’s coffee. lol funny how God works in wierd ways.


well now that youre all asleep in the back there… card of the day time. 😀 another  awesome 40th ann card. this picture is just so cute of him!! 😀 lol

Man! seriously its like when im broke EVERYTHING comes out of the woodwork to be bought! LOL

*WARNING! RANT COMING! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!* Well what comes up for bids after i just got thru buying my dream piece? an auto of a guy from one of my new favorite movies!!! ARGH!  So im trying like mad to sell stuff really cheap (like half the price i paid originally ) to get money so i can buy him.  I swear this always happens to me… i always buy high and sell low. >_<   *sigh* Hopefully if i can get him ill post him here in a few days… think the auction ends in three days or so.

Oh well… card of the day time … 🙂

Archer’s costume! I really like the designs of the Enterprise show’s costumes. I know they were kinda drab but i really liked the patches they wore. Kinda like astronauts of today would wear?  Wonder if they ever put parts of the patches on the costume cards? Those would be so cool!!! Well anyways, sorry the image is kinda crooked… cant scan to save my life >_<;
