Anyone that knows me knows that I'm seriously crazy when it comes to my house. I should have been an interior designer, my true love and desire, but wanted to have a job instead! So, I choose to spend money on jeans and my house. I can't stand it when I finally get to a room, to decorate that is, and when all is said and done something is off. It doesn't happen very often becuase I can just see the room in my head and make it appear the way I want with a whole lot of work and a nominal amount of money. I'm really good at finding great deals, making inexpensive items look great, and putting my vision into reality. Once in a while though, there is just something wrong when I get done, and typically it's because I did something that one of the kids wanted.

Ok, so I am really upset and frustrated. I have been wanting to incorporate exercise into my daily routine, which that alone is really hard to do. Anyway, last week, I got the valpak mailer, which includes so many coupons/deals, etc. that usually all end up in the trash. Not this time my friend! There is was, my golden ticket and answer to my exercise dilemna; a coupon for Lady Fitness for only $18/mo, and 3 mo. free. WOW!! I even read the ENTIRE coupon to make sure that I wasn't missing any fine print. Nope, no fine print about anything other than an expiration date. So my friend and I head over there this evening and I show them the coupon. They show us around the gym and then it comes! The catch. To get the $18/mo you have to sign a 3 yr. contract. WHAT! So I do what I do when I feel like something is wrong and tell them that the coupon does not say that there is a contract to sign to get that price anywhere, of course nicely, and that I expect them to honor the coupon. They of course won't and try to tell me that on coupons you have to call for details, but the number for some reason this time it was printed didn't get put on there with the phrase "call for details", but that they still stand by that the coupon doesn't have to say that the price is only good if you sign a three year contract and that we will need to sign the contract if we want that price. So, I told them that I felt that it was really wrong and that I was really disappointed, and that we were leaving, and we left.
