Today I MUST work on a wedding dress as I have a fitting at about 5 this evening. It is a great deal of hand work so I will be sitting most of the day, needle to nose. Other than that there are only a few things in the shop. So once that is completed I can work on some projects. I need to cherish these days as I get so few of them.
Sluggy has been nagging me to get sparkling water. I did not realize there was such a thing, with no artificial sweetener. But as we were almost out of TP and I needed to stock up, I went to Riteaid. They had a deal where you spend $50.00 on certain items and you get back a gift card for $20.00. Now I found these items to be more expensive then I would usually buy, but I had coupons and some points to include in the deal so it made sense. Stocked up and bought 3 packs of bottles fizzy water. I had one and it is not something I would guzzle like diet coke, but will help with the withdrawal of wanting something other than water.
So 4 packs of TP, 3 packs of sparkling water, two packages of diapers (for a church member that takes in foster kids), plus $5 worth of Valentine treats for my girls gift boxes. I have two sets of really cute kitchen towels and socks for valentines day I bought at 90% off. I will use. I doubt I will do this again as I am trying to think more about minimalism, and these things are rather silly and just lead to consumerism. We see a sale and think, What a good buy, I must have those for so and so. Really must have? Are they really necessary? We are all driven by a goo buy.
I then went grocery shopping for the week. It was so easy to spend $42.00 quickly. I was shocked. But I did stock up on more low carb treats I can eat. Forgot to get bean sprouts so I will be running to the market for those. I don't dare send Hub's. Went and picked up a prescription I was out of, I had to pay $10.00 for it which means it was very expensive. I did not ask the pharmacist. My Zeljanz co pay is paid by the company as I requested the help.
I have to say my hands feel better, don't know if it is due to the new double meds, the steroids. Anyway I will take it.
I am holding well at using things from the freezer, but I had to use the last of the chicken that I made into a large pan of enchiladas. Hubs wants nothing to do with chicken for a while so sent it with the neighbors, but was able to use up, several things from the pantry. Woo Hoo!
Well I am going to clean up and run and get some bean sprouts and some leaf lettuce on sale at a store and then get busy working on the wedding dress.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
