Mid Week Catch-up

I still have stitches. I went today to get them out and found out I'm not ready and have to go back Saturday. That's okay. It's a nice place with nice people, and that will get us out early (9 a.m. appointment) to go by the farmer's market at East Chase on the way.

While I was in the waiting room, I got a phone call from a realtor wanting to show the house tomorrow. Well, really today, but I put her off until tomorrow. This poor house has been neglected so long it's going to take a lot of work to spruce it back up.

Couponing is still happening, but it's hard work. Usually CVS is the most helpful place, but today I got Miss "I have NO idea," about anything. She just stood there with a vacant look while I scanned and sorted my "deals." At least she wasn't hostile. I spent $44 and got $18 back with a $15 rebate to come. That $11 bought 3 12-packs of Diet Coke, 4 cleaning/Zip-Loc items, 4 shampoo items, 12 paper towels, and 2 brownie mixes ($.08 a package).

I still had enough energy to buy big groceries at Publix where I got a sweet cashier who took responsibility for matching and pushing all my coupons through and telling me why certain ones wouldn't work. I love that store. Spent $80 - saved $50.

And to top off a great day, big black clouds are rolling in for a nice evening storm.

Not so much excitement for thunder and rain with some members of the household.

Others don't care.

Or pretend they don't. The ear position gives her away.
