So as grief brain lingers, I am trying to move on in the right direction, but it is hard. I did not get very much done yesterday as I was sleepy and not motivated. I hope today is better. I did forget one thing on my list yesterday of money saving. I finally received my first payment from adsense. Yippee!! $176.12 was deposited into my checking account which I immediately put onto the Joel savings goal. Now this was months and months of adsense, it does not really pay well. But hey better then a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, right?
There is a large head of cauliflower in the fridge that needs to be used so I was inspired by a blog to make a salad. It was actually my first trip to the grocery store as I picked up some sesame oil and seeds, also some broccoli. That is it.
Mom really liked to go grocery shopping. She looked forward to the weekly sale adds and loved to stock up on loss leaders. I have never had such a well stocked pantry and freezers, so now my goal is to eat them down. Mom always had a food storage, I think it came from the depression and living in the Dakotas where they were snowed in or flooded in. You had to be able to eat and cook when things got bad. I just remember always having shelves of food and canned goods and bottled fruit as a child.
I walked the bridges with one of our renters last night and that was nice. Hubs cannot walk with me anymore and it was nice to have company. Then I went out to ice cream with my sister. Like a debit and a credit. You walk 5 miles and then go get and ice cream cone. I got a cherry dip cone it was SO GOOD!
I had three more bridesmaid dresses come in yesterday and several pairs of pants. I really need to get into the shop and get to work. It is going to get ugly soon if I don't. I can do this, I will report back tomorrow on my progress.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
