The week started off with wonderful Spring weather but today is chilly and we are supposed to get more freezing temps this weekend. Of course I grabbed some flowers last weekend so they are sitting in the garage now. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can get them in the ground soon! Have I told you guys lately that I really wish the warm weather would stick around for good?! I am just not a cold weather kind of gal!!
It’s been a super busy week for us but we get to slow down a bit next week…it’s Spring Break! We will have a baseball game tomorrow but then we’ll get the week off. We are staying in town so we’ll still have to make time for tutoring and karate. Part of me wanted to go somewhere but with Easter next weekend, we’d really only have a few days away before family started heading our way.
Now, I say that we’ll slow down but with the boys home from school I tend to be less productive. I figure my best bet is to get the boys out and about. We are going to try to do a few things around Chattanooga…try and make it a mini staycation. The boys haven’t been to Rock City or Ruby Falls so hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can go there. My goal is to have one fun thing planned every day.
While I went to the store to look for the unadvertised deals on Wednesday, I did very little shopping. I had an appointment and wasn’t sure how long I’d be away from home so I decided to wait and do my big shopping trip. With the ad running for 10 days, I figure I’d have plenty of time to shop. My goal is to go tomorrow and get it done before the baseball game. I think it will actually work better because so often I find great deals but don’t have my coupons ready when I shop on Wednesday.
I ended up spending a little over $12 this week….almost half of that was just one tub of Ovaltine. Did I tell you guys that I managed to allow my stock to run out?! I knew we were low and I kept looking for coupons and sales but NADA! I really stocked up a long time ago and haven’t seen any good deals since then. Now I am to the point where I actually had to pay full price. That’s something that the frugal gal in my REALLY dislikes! So if any of you guys find a good deal on Ovaltine…please let me know
