Hello! Happy New Year!

Sorry I have been MIA lately. This pregnancy is making me so tired! I am not getting much done at all.

I’ll try to catch up with the posts this weekend and get back into posting each day.

Have a great day!

My new years was cool, we sat around, watched a movie, got some laundry done, I went food shopping, organized coupons and surfed online a lot..oh and did a workout :)

Betsy, I'm so glad see you post again, boy do I not miss that tiredness though...although it was always nice to just be able and fall asleep for half the day :)

Today was such a nice day that I took ayla to the park, and we walked around until lunch time..

I have the washer and dryer going right now..and I brought in alll the empty trash bins from the curb..took out trash and a full bag of crushed coke cans to storage to wait for recycling.

I've put away some coupons and showered/dressed/shoes (if I don't wear shoes my toes feel like they will freeze off) :toothy:

After Ayla goes down for a nap (if she does lol) I plan on finishing up my laundry..otherwise I'll sneak out while she's occupied like I usually have to do

I need to go to Rite Aid for T.P. and medicince cabinet stuff..and then somewhere to get some cokes on sale..

Ugh the bad thing that happened new years day, was our kitchen sink clogged up, we've tired draino...still didn't work...so I have an ICKY sink with a bunch of black crud in it...oh it's so nasty :( I forgot to ask dh when he called if it's ok for me to run the dishwasher yet :(

Well I am glad that I only have one more day of work. I was out once this week sick and I don't get paid for Wednesday but that's okay. I have been sick as a dog, got pneumonia, and don't seem to be getting any better. Hope all of you are safe for the new year and I wish you all the best.

Well, it was a looong day here, but we got a lot done! My spiderman sold on eBay, so I need to get some packing material and get him set to ship. DSs and I went to the PO to mail two books out that sold and stopped at the store on the way back for loss leader eggs. I waited outside with Gypsy at both places and they did very well! We also went to the library and then came home to lunch--ramen, hardboiled eggs and fruit. I had bread rising, laundry going and made No Bake cookies. I also made the potato chowder for dinner. It wa a very frugal say here!
