Pricing error madness

Don't know what's up this week with online stores, but it's been price error after price error. First, Dell's website was supposed to have 1 item (a laptop bag) on sale for $32 off. BUT Dell applied the discount pretty much site wide! I tried ordering a few things, and even though other people were successful, my order got cancelled :(

Next up was a US only deal, but was big enough to make news articles. This time BestBuy US has a 52" LCD for $9.99!!! This was an obvious error though, and BB cancelled the orders. (that tv retails for like $2000+)

Lastly, this morning was nutso! Futureshop mistakenly applied $150 off all orders! Again, I managed to order a few things, and thinking I was smart, chose in store pick up so I could get it today. But, FS fixed error and I got an email that the store couldn't supply my order :(. Others on the forum I found out about this were in the same boat, except a chunk of people who chose to have their orders shipped. Apparently those "shipping" orders are getting confirmed, though still possible they'll get cancelled.

Boo, I wanted free stuff :(

Sometimes these deals do work though (I've gotten $4 xbox 360 games, other free stuff, etc). So I definitely recommend daily reading of ; still great even without pricing errors.

My kid is awesome

So I got L for the night yesterday after almost a whole week away. OMG, missed him!! Picking him up at daycare, he must've felt the same as he came running up the stairs yelling "daddy daddy daddy" and jumped into my arms.

We headed out to our park and he played on everything, seriously. This park has 3 sets of swings, 2 play structures, a wadding pool and a ton of toys for kids to play with. We went around and played with/on every single thing.

On the way home, I started him doing his cute animal sounds. I'm trying to teach him a few new ones like turkeys say "gobble gobble" and his version is hilarious. I also practiced his number counting and he's almost got 1-10 down! His words combined with his cute lil voice is seriously awesome. I'm going to try and get it all on video this weekend.

Our night routine went smooth and both of us got a good night's sleep. Back to daycare and his mom's tonight, but then back for my week starting tomorrow.
