I toddled around yesterday working on cleaning up projects only to make bigger messes. Am I the only one to do that? My mom used to say it has to get bad before it gets better, but I feel like a match is the only thing that is going to save me.
I had planned on sweet potato sticks, green bean, baked cod and corn bread for dinner. While I was prepping dinner I was still working on my kitchen swap dishes project so every thing is a mess. Every counter is covered and I am trying to assemble a meal. I ran downstairs to pull the cod out of the freezer and it was spoiled. I mean SPOILED. IT smelled so bad. How does frozen fish spoil? I had Hub's look at it and he said somehow it had un thawed and then was refrozen, he could tell by the package. I have been known to pull things out of the freezer looking for something and then putting them on the hood of the car or his work bench. He will come along and pop them back in. I really have no idea how it went bad, but when fish is bad you know it is bad.
Now I am stuck for dinner and as I am munching on a piece of lefsa I thought take your antibiotic now so you can eat later. I had one pill left and remembered that I needed to pick up the rest of my antibiotic as I had only received 5 pills last weekend ( pharmacies ran short) Drat and double drat! No fish and I have to go to the store. I complained to Hub's and he said go buy another pound of cod and pick up my meds AND quit fussing. But, but, but you don't understand, I will have to go into a store and I will spend money. So here is my weakling self at the grocer/pharmacy yesterday.
I resolved to only go to the Pharmacy, but I had to walk by cart after cart of marked down Christmas things and CANDY. Me loves candy. But I stayed strong I looked but did not buy. Now I am standing in line at the pharm window and killing time on my phone. Let's see what Ibotta and checkout51 are offering. Wow look! I could earn almost 5.00 on stuff we use , like fruit and veggies, eggs. These offers end today, I really must use these offers. No, no you do not have to. You will save 5.00 to spend $20.00?
When I got to the window I was told it would be 10 minutes so I went in search of cod, which I found frozen on sale, so I bought a 2 pound bag. Then I continued down the meat aisle and found 5 packages of good steaks marked 75% off. Sorry I bought them. I just could not pas up a package of New York steak strips for $2.33. SO my total at the store was $22.19. I am medicated, but I think I need a different medication. What would you have done? Slap me.....
I made such a mess yesterday and today I have to clean it up and I don't want to. I swear I need a keeper.
So I am failing utterly a this challenge and I am only 4 days in...... any advice, go ahead and be cruel.
Have a great and productive gay staying positive while you are in the negative.
