    I'm through paying March's bills so for the rest of the day I need to organize some paperwork, vacuum downstairs, go through a box of my parents' stuff, and stay current on my Bible study homework. For supper we're having grilled burgers and I'll make a dessert and some sides.

    I need to go through the current stack of bills, myself.

    So Monday as I was trying to wrangle dinner -- by myself-- I took a tumble. Tripped over something, maybe a cat and the scooter went sideways and I ended up putting my bad foot down hard and then knocking myself hard on the cabinets on the way down. Nothing broken, but the foot swelled up again. Woke up yesterday feeling sore and crappy.

    Swelling is down today and I feel much better.

    I looked over the grocery ads this morning. Not a lot of great deals but everybody has canned tuna for .49 for Lent. It's asparagus season, too. We love it. One store has butter for 1.49, yay! Still mostly living off the stockpile I put up in January.

    We had about 15 minutes of rain last night before storms moved off east. Hope no one got hit by those tornadoes.

    I think dinner tonight is going to be chili and leftovers, despite what the menu plan says. It's cold and the fridge is full of containers.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    A clean house is a sign of a wasted life. ~unknown

    CH sorry you fell. Can you sit down on the scooter and still reach the counter? Upper body strength comes in handy.

    Another crappy night of just 2 hours sleep. The lunatic new bosses really are getting to me. So not much energy to go around. Raisin bread in the bread machine for breakfast. I took surveys on Surveymonkey Contribute and earned a few $ for my charity of choice. Close to $10 so far. My co-worker does crossword puzzles online at lunch, why not earn something for charity instead?

    FW- no, nothing exciting @ Ollies. I had to take back a set of curtains. I looked around & spent $10.00, mostly on junk for a goodie bag for DH's birthday today.
    CH - sorry to hear you took a spill, glad the swelling is going down.
    Our area has the tuna on sale too & I am all stocked up. No sales on butter though.
    We had bad wind last night that woke me up & I had a fleeting thought that maybe we should go to the basement, but I fell back asleep, so I guess it didn't worry me too much... More wind advisories tonight.
    Busy day today
    Worked 8 hours- took a shower during my lunch break
    Went to dentist & the three stores I wanted, then got home & put stuff away just in time for DH to get home. We went to the steak house down the road & got half price appetizers & drank a beer. That was his birthday "dinner". Yes I am a tightwad! He will have a nice party with the family on Sunday.
    Tomorrow is cleaning day! Will try to do all the floors, see what needs dusted.
    Hope everyone has a great evening!

    Took a day off and had my casino day. I was about ready to leave when I sat down and won $815 on a penny machine. Needless to say I paid bills. I left immediately. Didn't spend buy $20 of my own. Woo!Hoo! DH is leaving today for San Antonio for a few days for the state basketball tournament. I have a theatre meeting this afternoon. Not going to do much today.

    GB big smile for your win. We know how to stretch those dollars.
    Worked at home today for the sake of my sanity. Back to the office Friday. I cooked the last pumpkin from the garage. It was still good. Pumpkin pie this weekend. Hubby discussed next week's schedule at dinner. Sounds like I don't need to cook Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. Yay! Friday I need to brush the dog and clean his ears again. Vet visit Saturday morning.

    GB wow know who to take IF I ever go.
    CH-ooh so sorry. Dh has been getting on a ladder all week and I have been Pissed at him. He got this amazing break that he healed and can walk. I mean no one else there has "ladder skill" and which cabke to pull is rocket science.

    Everyone else HEY!! I didn laundry yesterday and day before and got a good handle on clothes. now towels and bedding-not so much. Cleaning the dresser/tv/vcr/blue ray stack up DH has set up in my room. screwed up the tv but got it back and reset the settings. Thats big for me. I should know how to work all this cable/computer crap including the setup down stairs for WIFI. And the water systems. This house has quirks. because we are using stuff past its prime. I ordered and got a new sump. I asked DH to let me install it but I want him home in case something odd fall apart. We cannot go 12 hrs. w/o one.
    Got the 4 pairs of shoes I ordered for DH and they got the pairs right w/ right and a left shoe too.wow. I figure staying out of the store saved temptation and time.

    Much less dizzyness. I hope I start to gain momentum again. I had hoped to catch up on some of the dishes before DH get back tomorrow late.

    So Alica Keys is my new OMG entertainer since she belted out the ABC"S in Jimmy Kimmels game of copying singers. She did the most awe inspiring copy of Adelles style.I need to check out her music more..

    Well salad snack is gone. Back to bed.

    Good morning. It is cold, but sunny. Working at the soup kitchen, taking glass to recycle, and then getting a haircut. That's it for me. I will probably porch sit and read this afternoon if the temps warm up.

    DH and I spent time at the annual Old Book Sale yesterday and got 12 books for $16. Didn't find the Churchill book I wanted but did get a hardbound copy of East of Eden, 3 paperbacks by the Shaaras (historical fiction---Civil War, 1776 by David McCullough, and DH got some DIY books. Sunday everything is 1/2 price so we're going back. Plus my best friend and her son were there so we shopped together.

    For Friday:

    1) Vacuum downstairs DONE
    2) Tractor Supply for litter, Sam's for hot dog lunch, Aldi, then pick up Zaycon chicken
    3) Package chicken for freezer
    4) Work on menus

    Have a good Friday!

    Good morning. Nice to see so many posts today. Sunny but freezing here.

    Yesterday was a very low energy day. I got an asparagus and tomato salad made and we had that with leftovers for dinner. Went to bed early.

    Fixed a tear in my jeans but I see a new one has opened up right next to it, so these are probably not going to last much longer.

    Today I still have bills to pay, need to see what vegs are left in the fridge, make a shopping list for DH, and try to tidy up around here a bit. Been seeing the ads for fun, colorful new spring stuff in the stores and I want to go OUT!

    Appt with the surgeon next week. Will see what he says about the foot.

    FW, hope you get your energy back soon. That bout of flu I had last fall just sucked the life out of me for weeks afterward. Just sucked in general.
