Yep, I missed the update again on Sunday. Not that I have a lot to talk about, but I like to keep my toes in the pool, so to speak.
I didn't do much reading, but I did finish a book. Yay.
Not much baking either. Yesterday, I made scalloped potatoes with breaded pork chops. Super yummy.
Let's not talk about activity. I'm a bag of loose meat at this point. However, the bag is still getting smaller. Weight: 166.8. I was feeling gross Friday and Saturday, so not much eating occurred. Is it any wonder that Sunday I was lighter? :shrug:
Work is still work. I rolled past my 90 day mark with nary a whisper from anyone about it. :shrug: I think I'm doing awesome, all things considered. Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but with as many things that are chucked at me on any given day, and still maintaining my sanity, I'd say I'm awesome.
I also did 6 spreadsheets last week. I rock.
It's nice not to have to work my magic to keep expenses from slopping over our budget every damn month, I'll tell ya that. If I want to buy steak, I buy steak, dammit. I mean, we're still staying tight, because one never knows what'll happen with the economy, but now it's a choice, not a necessity.
Speaking of expenses, I went to Wallyworld yesterday. Most things are up again. Suet - 8 bricks - was $6.98, now $9.98. (I didn't buy the 8 pk, they had some singles on sale that brought the price down and then I only bought 5. I still paid almost $5.) Eggs - 18 ct - was $1.78, now $3.02, Kraft singles - was $2.98, now $4.98. Donuts - 6 - was $2.97, now $3.76. Hershey's miniatures - was $9.98, now $11.98. Frozen chicken tenderloins - was $6.79, now $9.68. Ice cream - 1.5 gal pail - was 4.88, now 6.24. I spent over $200 on what used to cost me just over $100. Bideinflation. yay.
On a happier note, I bought myself some new shoes. Skechers - which my mom swears by and the reviews were great. I also ordered a new bra. They should be here today. They're actually on a truck headed in my direction. Let's see if they actually arrive. UPS is coming from a different city than they usually do and if they're using GPS, they're screwed for finding me.
And that's about it. How was your week?
