A Sucker for Good Marketing...

Okay, now, usually I don't buy crap cereals. We buy Kashi, Honey-nut Cheerios, and oatmeal. Once in a great while, I'll buy Reese's Puff cereal, because the kids (and Hubby) love it.

So I'm in the grocery store last night, killing time while my two oldest were in Cubs and church activities at the church down the road, and I find this cereal.

Let me explain: My family is ALL ABOUT Indiana Jones. We are obsessed. My kids choose to watch the movies over most of their other movies. Even Harry Potter comes in second to Indiana. And naturally, we are all fainting over the release of the movie this month.

So, I bought the cereal. Sure, it's basically Cocoa Puffs frankensteined with Lucky Charms marshmallows, in the shape of crystal skulls, Indy's hat, and various other things. But you have to admit, it's pretty cool. I bought two boxes. The kids ate some this morning, and loved it. I like the little "skull marshmallows." How cool can you get?

They sure know how to get us moms!

I am going to the Dr. this morning for my shoulder. I discovered a deep bruise on the back of my shoulder yesterday. I don't remember hitting or hurting it--so I might have torn something and it bled inside? I don't know. All I do know is I'm in mortal pain still, and I'm chugging 800 milligrams of Ibuprofen at regular intervals to keep the devil at bay.

OUCH.

Hubby comes home tonight. He's going to be dog tired. I at least got some sleep last night. Tonight is a slow night--Thing One has sofball practice and that's it. It feels weird. I feel like I should have...five more things or so going on tonight! Heh heh. NOT.

Time to get some writing in!

OMG I HAVE TO GET TO THE STORE LIKE NOW! haha My kiddo will dig that. Do you think he's old enough to watch the Indy movies?

I can't wait until it comes out. I'm going of course!!

Hope that shoulder is okay. Let me know what the dr. says!

My youngest is seven and a half--and he loves the movies. But he doesn't like the "hearts getting ripped out" in Temple of Doom. That part might get to your sweetie.

LOVE the Cereal. Will be buying some soon. Love the movies, too, but that cereal is a hoot!

Doesn't it feel weird when your night is jam-packed with activities? I never quite know what to do when contemplating dinner at the table on a weeknight...

Amy said...

Meant when your night ISN'T jam-packed with activities.

Sheesh...

We are kindred spirits. I was sucked in by the Coco Indies too!!! And have you seen the Indiana Jones t-shirt at Gap Kids?

Lara said...

No I haven't! Is it worth a look?

:-D

Oh my gosh, that's shameless! (now to run to the story) hehe ;-)

I'm sorry to hear about your injury Lara. I hope it's nothing too serious.
