I’ve been bit by a very nasty bug – a virus - headcold that is. Kayla, too. It’s been a rough week. AND, I have a very busy Saturday, SO double the Vitamin C, throw back some Tussin and get on with it.
Today I’ve been working on my grocery shopping list. I don’t get paid again until the end of the month and after bills and another Christmas gift bought, there isn’t much left. And there is Thanksgiving dinner to buy for. I’ve finalized the menu. It’s simple. I’ve tried switching it up, my children aren’t too fond of that. So, I’m back to our traditional which they love and look forward to every year.
I’m trying to be frugal so we shall be clipping coupons later and looking for the best sales. I plan on slow cooking most every meal from here to Thanksgiving. That’s not as extreme as it sounds. I really don’t cook much during the week. I mostly cook on the weekends when the kiddies are here, but K has been staying lately and I have to have meals for her. Tomorrow, I’ll be grocery shopping, and then the kiddies will be coming over to celebrate Ben’s 9th birthday.
It’s warming up here in Pittsburgh. Going to be a warmish weekend (in the 50’s). So not like the days of yore.
Well, enough! I’ve got work to do. Oh, look, it’s time for lunch!
