OK, I'm really hooked

April 21st, 2013 at 05:58 am

For some reason the Swagbucks games are not working this morning. I can't tell you how many times I've gone back to the site and tried to start Mahjong Dimensions. I'm hooked. I read in the comments that some people have beaten the third level and I want to, too!

I've had trouble with the Worldwinner games, too -- I often get an error code in mid-play and the game abruptly ends. I used to think my computer had something to do with it, but now that the same thing is happening with my new computer, I know it must be on their end.

It's probably a sign that I shouldn't waste so much time on games!

I'm planning my big outing of the day -- grocery shopping! I remain committed to picking out ten items only. I have a full pantry and freezer, so it really makes sense to shop sparingly -- also makes it much easier to carry the load upstairs.

This is what I have on my list so far: cat litter, cat food, manila folders, crackers, bath pouf, pizza sauce, pop, ice cream, granola, granola bars, wine. That's 11 items, so I'll have to make some choices. The only item that's going into a planned meal is the pizza sauce. I'm going to use that with some leftover garlic bread and mozzarella cheese to make mini pizzas.

I'm going to make some tuna salad today. That, the mini pizzas, hamburgers, and grilled cheese sandwiches will be my dinners this week. I also have spaghetti sauce in the freezer, but I suspect I will not have to get into that. There are a lot of lunches in the freezer -- not frozen dinners, but leftovers from dinners I have made. So I don't have to worry about buying lunches.

    Cat litter and cat food are particularly heavy items to carry up the stairs with other groceries. I suggest they be a 'stand alone', targeted purchase. Would you considered on-line shopping with grocery delivery if you have storage space? I'm told there are often coupons for free delivery.

    Snafu, too bad the cat can't help tote! LOL OK, I'm was trying a little levity...

    Love the use of leftovers and do overs for meals. Sure saves money.

    I think I will eventually use Peapod or some other service when my knees get weaker. For now, when I get cat litter it usually stays in the car until the next day when I don't have other things to carry. The cat food, too, if it is a big bag, but I bought a medium-size bag this time.

    I think I read on the SBs FB wall that the Mahjong game was removed for awhile due to issues. So the issues may just not be quite fixed yet. I personally do the drop 3 game for my daily ten Smile

    It was fixed last night! Really makes earning SB's more fun for me.
