My day (and the grocery shopping)

October 21st, 2006 at 09:03 pm

I was so bummed out last night, and it did carry over into this morning, but I just made a choice not to dwell on all the negative and keep plugging on through it. It wasn't a great day, but at least I didn't crawl in a hole and hide...
Last night I told DH of three goals that I wanted to get accomplish today (meaning I would need his help).
1. Hang shelves in our office/craft area that we moved from different areas of the apartment to one area (it was [i]only[i] two weeks ago that we did this and I'm just now getting around to finishing it off)
2. Grocery shopping for the next 15 days.
3. Give DS a haircut.
#'s 1 and 2 got done, but will have to do #3 tommorrow.
I really tried with this one, but DH didn't feel like rolling out of bed until 12:45 p.m. Got him to hang his office shelf without any problem. Then started the coaxing to hang mine...it was hung by 5 p.m. I can finally get back to work on those Christmas presents for everybody and hopefully get them done by the end of November.
In between those times DS got ahold of a full bottle of calligraphy ink that [b]was[b] sitting on DH shelf. We had to take it off to move it and rehang it. I spent quite awhile trying to get the stain at least somewhat out. I now have a silver dollar sized mostly purple stain under the dinning room table. I really had a hard time with this one because we live in an apartment and we signed a move in special when we first moved in here so we ended up not having to pay a deposit. *stay positive-stay positive-stay positive*
By 6 p.m. we were off to the grocery store. I did have a few splurges. I bought a brown bag of ripe bananas for bread in the hopes of making some and freezing it for gifts, but I'm not sure if it's too early for that or not. If it is I am only out .79. DS and I are allergic, so I suppose I could make some for DH and DD and the inlaws...
I got an extra jar of peanut butter, as it is my weakness to eat it in spoonfulls as a little power snack when things get hectic around here. I end up not having any left for DS when I do that though, and PB&J's are his all time favorites.
I also splurged on 4 boxes of frozen pizzas. They were on sale 10 for 10, which is an ok price. It would have been even better if I had a coupon, but I didn't, so oh well...
I made those splurges and still felt pretty good. The grocery total was $43.99. Off to store #2 for meat.*dum dum dum*
Ran in and out spent $19.55 on meat! Not bad, but it could have been better. I should have bought hamburger at store #1 as it was a little cheaper, but I didn't research it well enough so I guess I'm just out.
So, total grocery store purchase was $63.54. I will still need to get one pack of diapers and a loaf of bread (I wish my freezer was just a little bit bigger) and [i]maybe[i] a block of cheese, other than that I am set for the next 15 days or better.
I'm feeling so good because I have (so far) only used about half of the budgeted money for this 15 day period!
Tomorrow is my cooking day and DH wants to invite his parents over to dinner. I will be extra busy!

    I love to eat peanut butter on a spoon, too!

    I don't think it's too early for the banana bread, just make sure you wrap it well before putting it in the freezer.
