Let me free my mind of some thoughts that are swirling around my busy little head.
I have recently gotten in the habit of watching Maury during the kids nap time. "You ARE the father!" It's like a complete train wreck of a show. It's so awful but you can't help but watch.
I am convinced, once again, that I am totally uneasy with change. Big change, little change...doesn't matter. I am comfy in my own little world going along as it did the day before, and the day before that, and the day before that.
We are going through some change in my house.
I really need a vacation.
I am going to PA in approximately two weeks and will be attending a wedding. Remember when I spring cleaned my closet? Remember that I only had dresses from 15 years ago? What am I going to do about a dress?!?!?!
I wish I had a stylist that would do my clothing shopping for me. I hate shopping.
Going to PA doesn't count as a "vacation."
The past few days I am convinced my kids are trying to kill me. When does the whining end? I think it's a great day for a reality check.
Last night I went to see a child psychologist speak to my mom's group. She is amazing. I could have listened to her for hours. Check out her website here. She wrote a book that I am reading here. Good, good stuff.
I had an "aha" moment the other day. I am an emotional eater. Anytime I feel overwhelmed, I eat. Anytime I feel angry, I eat. Anytime I feel depressed, I eat.
I really want some ice cream.
I am going to start to track my eating using the weight watchers point system. Not cause I need to lose weight, but because I need to have structure.
I can't believe Oprah is going off the air. I've been watching her forever! *tear*
Okey dokie. I feel better...I just need to convince myself not to eat that ice cream bar in the freezer. Y'all have a good day.
It's been awhile since I have found some really killer deals at the grocery store. I basically have been living on a stockpile and haven't had to do a big shop in awhile. But I was itching for some deals so went shopping last night at Fry's. By myself. It's like a vacation every single time.
Anywho, I was pretty stoked after my trip last night since I got $102.05 worth of groceries (41 items) for $22.83. A 77% savings! SCORE! I still get that "couponers high" and walked out of there feeling like a champ!
Here's a breakdown of the items I got at Fry's. Keep in mind that my Fry's takes competitor's coupons and doubles all MFR coupons to $1.00. They were also doing a MEGA event which you get a lower sale price on items when you buy the participating items in groups of 10:
2 Nestles candy bars $.50 each $.50/2 Nestles single candy bars =FREE
Produce-Used a Safeway coupon for $1 off produce wyb $5 or more: Corn on the cob (I got a craving for corn!) $3.49 Organic avacado $1.89 Organic onion $.60 Organic bananas $1.40 2 Organic red bell peppers $4.58 Pineapple $.99 5 Roma tomatos $.62
