Not a Whole Lot Better

February 17th, 2015 at 06:53 am

Though I did feel better yesterday afternoon, enough to walk to Supercuts and get my hair cut, I feel pretty crummy today. But I'm at work.

I still had one cut left on my gift card, so it was free except for the tip. I gave the stylist $5 because she did such a nice job -- and I didn't have any smaller change!

This morning I decided to drive because I had stuff to carry. No go. The battery on my key fob was dead, so I couldn't start the car. I took the train, and at noon I'll have to have a co-worker drive me to Toyota so I can replace the battery. Kicking myself, because I did notice it was getting weak, but did nothing about it.

I forgot to list my eleven items from the grocery yesterday:

Cat Chow
Keurig cups
Almond Milk
Grated Cheddar
Greek Yogurt
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter with Olive Oil (2)
Sweet Peppers

I see it's actually twelve items! I must have miscounted in the cart.

It is really hard to stay down to ten items. On the other hand, it's really hard to carry more than ten items upstairs, so I do have my motivation.

I paid my $1208 property tax this morning. I'm expecting a very low bill for the second half of the year, since it will reflect my new senior status.

    You might think about Googling or looking on YouTube to find instructions and battery type and then stopping by a Radio Shack or drugstore to get a battery and changing it yourself. It might be more convenient then trying to get to the dealer. I've started changing my own and keeping some spare batteries at home. Way more convenient and cheaper, too!

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Do you ever purchase the kcups online? I got a keurig at thanksgiving and ordered my first bunch from them (huge discounts and free items if I registered the machine).

    But now that I am on my last boxes I wonder where the cheapest place is to buy them? I see at Safeway when they are on sale they are about 5.99-6.99 but I haven't seen the sales recently.

    In preparation for the purchase I put 50 cents away in my coffee jar every time I made a cup of coffee.

    Chloe, I just bought the battery (and a spare) at Batteries Plus. It is an unusual type and size, which is why I went to the dealer first, but this time even they didn't have it!

    Kiki, I have purchased K-cups from Amazon, but lately I've been finding good deals in the store. I just bought McCafe K-Cups for 4.99 at Jewel. Right after Christmas I found K-Cups with a holiday theme seriously marked down. I only buy them to take to work; I'll be glad when I don't have to any more because they are way too costly!

    I'm sorry you're still not feeling well.

    So, your ten items list means *exactly* ten items? No multiples of a similar item? That would be difficult ...

    Yeah, I try to keep it to exactly ten. More because of the heavy lifting than anything else.
