Wow after my 2nd day back at work - IM BAGGED! Good thing I had my first coffee after lunch and my 2nd cup at 4.15pm just before I left :lol:

Just got home, had dinner (and packed my lunch)...need to trxfr $ between accounts and pay more bills and redo budget. Danged tax time and RRSPs!

To do tonight -

* banking/budgeting

* attempt #2 at a real shower (no more sponge bathing) first time, the water on my toe just hurt too much and it WAS bandaged up

* drive to the burbs to my sister's place and give back a bday gift she had given me so she can her money back. Its something I didnt really ask for - her thought process posessed her to buy it - and its something I dont need nor have that much use for to justify a gift that just keeps on costing in the long run. That and give her 2 more boxes from copier paper from work - shes moving soon!

* peruse through FutureShop/Best Buy if I feel like it

* attempt to see the bf - hes very sick with the flu or Norwalk Virus, but he seems to be over it now - still iffy, gonna call him first

* go through the car wash before my free wash expires tomorrow!

* soak toe and curl up with a cup of tea with my Tightwad Gazette before bed!

Have a WONDERFUL evening ladies....Im glad its warmed up today. When I left for work this am the snowbanks were about 6' tall and now they're only 2.5 '! :laugh:

~ redecorated the bedroom with a new (i.e. taken out of the closet) comforter and throw pillows.
~ spending the evening relaxing after getting so much done! :D

Just got back from Target. I needed some white-out and when I reached for it, noticed they had some with free-after-rebate stickers on them. I peeled it off enough to see the details and they said 3 per household, so I took 3 instead of 1 and will get them all free!

Also got another free Choxie bar with that printable coupon. This time she didn't let me get multiple bars though, even with multiple coupons! It says one coupon PER item. Whatever, I didn't want to debate about it.
