It’s hard to believe it’s Friday already. Last week, at this time, I was getting ready to go for my first mammogram (I never got a chance to report on how that went – but it really wasn’t as bad as I had expected – and everything was fine, so that’s a praise!) Last Friday evening, I took my first Disney test for my travel agent position. Looking back now, I realize that I took that test in a bit of a “blur” state. I think the TGA was already starting to set it.
I was given strict orders for this week – take it easy! no work! That’s kinda difficult for someone who was glued to my calendar and always meeting some sort of deadline. Needless to say, I’ve been feeling a bit stir-crazy this week. Last night somebody told me (and I quote) “If this is resting, may I say you are really a big fat failure at it!” Yep, that’s me.
And, as much as I just want things to get back to “normal” around here, when Brian announced last night that he’d be home early and would take Gracie, Ian, and me out for supper and for groceries, I cringed. I mean, sure, the supper part sounds like fun; but the groceries?! Am I the only one who hates going to the grocery store? It’s not so much the experience of the store itself, it’s preparing for it. We try to make a menu, so we only have to buy the things we need. I don’t mind it so much when it’s a family-affair; but when it’s all my responsibility . . . ugh!
That being said, I recently received The Works from Christi the Coupon Coach. I’ve read through over half the book, and I’m slightly confused. I’m going to attribute it to my recent memory loss – and hope that I can eventually figure the whole thing out because it looks really cool (and fun!)
If you’ve got a handle on saving tons of money on groceries, please leave me a comment and tell me how you do it! We recently started shopping at Aldi’s and have been saving lots of money there. Tonight we’ll go there, and to BJ’s.
Later this morning, I have an appointment to get my hair done. This was the second “before Florida” appointment that I made for myself – and definitely the one I was most looking forward to! I’m not sure exactly what I’ll have done – I was originally thinking of getting colored, but I’m not sure I want to have to maintain that (both with time and money!), so I’m leaning toward highlights and a trim. We’ll see.
What are your weekend plans?
