    To all Canadians who get today off: Happy Family Day! I finally slept in today and enjoyed those extra zzzz's but I know I'll pay for it tomorrow. Today it's cold outside (-9C/15.8F) but it's sunny. I'll probably bundle up later and go for a walk. Then I'll do my weekly cooking (too tired...

    Well, I'm home sick, but feeling better than I did yesterday. Got absolutely nothing done this weekend, but at least I was frugal! Today, since I'm feeling a little better, I'm just doing some easy stuff around the house - light organizing/cleaning.

    All meals will be at home today, shouldn't have any reason at all to spend money, and hoping to have a quiet evening at home after work. Just gotta make it to 6 pm! May run a load of darks and enjoy some free holiday music online or watch a little TV in my free time.
