    I got up today and immediately washed my face and combed out my hair, not a usual act for a day off.

    Made myself eat some breakfast (two eggs, over easy), which is one of the things I am trying to get better about, as every single thing I read about nutrition says to eat breakfast!

    I had to go buy some groceries, and I tried to buy a few items that would help me get over the "no breakfast" rut. I got some soy milk and some juice, so at the very minimum, ...

  3. January $60 Food Budget!!!

    by , 12-30-2008 at 04:56 PM
    My January food budget is going to be $60.
    DH is totally on board for this.
    Just need to sit down and do a menu and follow through with it.
    Would like to try some new recipes also in January.
    Will be putting my menu on here so I am more accountable for it.
    Most of the $60 will be for produce and dairy.
  4. Talking About Money Is Inappropriate

    by , 12-30-2008 at 04:42 PM ([email protected]'s Blog)
    Not that long ago it was taboo to speak about money in public. But now, as with so many other things, talking about money has become more acceptable. I hear it all the time. Friends have asked me what kind of debt we have, wanting me to break it down into car payments, credit cards, and mortgages. (When I said, “None,” one friend got huffy and said, “Well, if you don’t want to tell us that’s fine, but don’t lie.”)

    At a party a few weeks ago, someone that I didn’t know asked me, upon ...

    Just how much sugar I use!

    I'll admit I LOVE chocolate, it's one of my most favorite things in the world. But I don't buy it. I'm also pretty particular as to what kind of chocolate so the CHristmas chocolates I was given were eaten by the kids or by dh. So it's not the treats that are my enemy.

    But i love sweetened tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cappucino. I have several cups a day, it's -OMG outside, it warms and soothes me. I love it. But it adds up fast.

    Since ...
