  1. Shopping Trip - January 24, 2011

    by , 01-26-2011 at 10:11 AM
    Okay, I am a few days behind on posting this, because I was looking for a second receipt (stopped at two stores) and I have been unsuccessful at finding it. So I am going to have to just list what I bought at the second store, without prices. The total at the second store was $30.76.

    First, Safeway:

    10 lb bag of white sugar $7.79
    4 gallons water ($1/ea) $4.40
    Spray starch $2.69
    Half and Half (1 pint and 1 qt) $3.48
    Cottage cheese $3.99
    ...
  2. Road Map for the Day - January 26, 2011

    I will be stuck in the office the better part of the day, due to visiting VIP's.

    Right now, at 4:10 am, my plan is to get my morning exercises done, then wash dishes and get breakfast ready for everyone. Feed the dogs, parrots, finches, and bunnies, then put in a load of laundry, and while that is washing, go out and feed donkeys, goats, chickens, and fish. Come back in, shower, get ready for work, climb into my suit, and head to the office.

    Since I am stuck in the office ...

  5. Road Map for the Day - January 25, 2011

    Yet another meeting this morning, but not until 10:00am, but I have to pick a co-worker up from an auto repair shop the opposite direction of how I go to work, so I still have to be mindful of the time.

    The plan is: morning exercise, breakfast to everyone, dressed for the meeting, then off to pick up my co-worker, straight to the office, and into the meeting. After the meeting, I have a bunch of paperwork still to catch up on, then hopefully out the door a little earlier than yesterday ...
