So today has been a ridiculous day, truly unproductive and wasted...all of my own design...I woke up to a blue sky and instead of making a tea and going to sit in the sun on my balcony, I grabbed the newspaper and headed for the couch.

This trip did not go as well as expected, but I got everything I needed plus some for the stockpile. I will list what I bought and separate out stockpile and items needed for the week and items that I really didn't need, but bought because I wanted them. I have got to stop that.
Pickled Okra 3.35
Canvas chair with bag 3.94 (7.88 on 50% off sale)
Items for week
Loaf of wheat bread 3.15
Hamburger buns 1.69
Kidney beans .58
Ok, so day #1 of my menu plan didn't go off as expected. Dh's grandma was taken to the hospital so I went up there directly after work and we ate in the hospital cafeteria. Dh's dad paid, so it was taken care of. His grandma has a UTI and she aspirated into her lungs which could cause pnuemonia. She has dementia which worsened when dh's grandpa died a year and a half ago. She also happens to be in the same nursing home my sister works in, so she can keep an eye on her.
