I have been so happy to see almost a full week of nice weather. Here’s hoping that we have more to come. I just checked the weather forecast and it is supposed to be 80 degrees here on Sunday!
The only thing on our to do list this weekend is one baseball game and then we are free to do whatever. We’ve been so busy that I am glad to have some time just to enjoy the weekend a bit. We’ve been busy with houseguest for the last couple of weekends. I think this weekend, I might plant a few flowers and just enjoy the weather a bit.
Well I spend a bit above my average this week but I needed those paper towels so it had to be done. I will also have to do something that I haven’t had to do in a while…pay full price for something I need because I didn’t track my inventory. I have been living off of my huge stash of feminine hygiene products that I managed to rack up over the years. You know those free pantyliners and tampons that used to be super cheap. Somehow I manage to allow myself to get down to one box of tampons–UGH!! I guess I need to look to see where the best spot to grab a box or two and then be a little more aware of the sales. I do have a couple of gift cards that will take the sting away a bit but I could kick myself for not paying attention!!
Here’s what I got this week. I think I might run by the store today after I grab the boys. I want to get some Coke Zero while there is the sale and Publix coupon!!
