    Smile April 2 2009...thrifty Thursday

    What do you have going on today?

    Still fighting this cold, but I think I'm feeling better. Just a bit more tired than usual because I couldn't sleep due to my nose being all stuffed up.

    I need to play "catch up" with all the cleaning that's been skipped this past week while I've been sick.

    I may venture out to the library to pick up a book that's waiting for me.

    Hope you all have a great thrifty Thursday

    I'll be cleaning here too. Laundry needs to get done and so do some dishes!

    It's garbage day, so I need to get that out to the curb as well. Other than that, I think I'll be playing it by ear today! I need to sit down and get my April goals thought out and down on paper, so I have something tangible to work towards!

    Good morning!

    This is my 1st official whole day on FV and am loving it!! Got up this morning and couldn't wait to log on!

    Will be working until 3:30 and tonight I am going to see how much change I can scrounge up for my change jar!

    Also going to clean out my closet and add things to the stuff that I am getting ready for a garage sale that DD and I are having next month.

    Have a great day!

    Today is my day off and payday so I will be sqeezing out every penny I can at the grocery stores. I'm hitting up my Amish store and Dollar General Market first, gotta start with the cheapest. Then I'm meeting my fiancee for lunch at 2:00. I have to drive 35 miles to the next town to go to Aldi, WM, and Giant Eagle, so I will be gone most of the afternoon.I might have time to stop at the Goodwill and look for a pair of jeans for work, if not I will do that Monday on my next day off.

    Today I've already ....
    - Made breakfast/cleaned up afterwards
    - Got DH off to work/ DS off to school
    - Fed the furry children
    - Put some lined dried t shirts from yesterday in the dryer on air dry to soften them for about 15 minutes.

    I still need to ....
    - Check the garden
    - Do some more re-organizing in the "Everything" room
    - Read a little
    - Plan next weeks menu and see if I need anything from the grocery store tomorrow while I'm out.

    That is it, I think. It's pretty much a free for all day so I'm just going to see what else pops up or what I find myself getting into later on.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Today is my extra cleaning day, when I get to tackle a lot of extra things like cleaning the windows, decluttering etc. I have the girls pretty much done with their lessons and then I'll get my son's lessons done. Lunch and breakfast are over and hubby is coming home a bit early to go with us to tae kwan do tonight.

    This has been a dreary, rainy old day. I did my workout and the morning routine, then took my neighbor to his appointment. We shopped at the salvage store and ran by Dollar Tree. He bought me a yummy sandwich at Quiznos for lunch. I worked on some cleaning. I am getting around and ready for my friend to stop by so we can do a walking tape. After supper is children's swim so we will swim also and do weights. Hope you had a nice day!

    Well I worked for the majority of the day. Came home and got into some sewing projects. Next is dinner, and maybe some more sewing projects and reading a book. If I feel real ambitious maybe I'll bake a yummy treat! The sun is out and it's beautiful, gives me lots of energy!
