Getting Out a Little

July 24th, 2017 at 06:16 am

I went out yesterday. I was very strategic. I took my laundry downstairs, then went straight to Walgreens and Jewel, then came home, stopping to tend the laundry before I went back upstairs. When the laundry was dry, I took my garbage down at the same time. That was only two trips up and down the steps.

At Walgreens I bought a knee compression sleeve, but I think I will take it back today. It actually makes my knee feel worse. That was $12. At the grocery, I bought Slide kitty litter with a coupon and rebate offer attached. I've already prepared the rebate request. So that will not only be free, but will earn me a dollar (because of the coupon). I also bought one can of cat food -- it's a new brand, and I want to test it with the kitties before I commit to it. And I got three free MyMixx items -- cucumber water, ice cream bars, and dressing. My total spending was $8 but I'll get $7 back. The MyMixx items were worth $7, so I added that to Snowflakes.

Today I need to wash sheets. I'll combine that with my trip back to Walgreens and a drive-by at the library to return my DVD.

My knee is feeling better, but it is not back to normal yet. When I get in the wrong position, I definitely feel that "catch" which is so painful. I just have to be patient and wait for the healing. I'm doing mild stretching exercises, but for the time being I'm forgoing the gym. Maybe tomorrow I can go do my strength-training.

I got a text this morning from a former colleague who asked me if I was interested in part-time work in Chicago. If so, she would recommend me to the person who contacted her. I am willing to at least investigate. I'm now awaiting a followup email which will tell me more.

This morning I was loading the dishwasher and noticed, as I rinsed the dishes, that the hot water wasn't working. I tried the bathroom sink, and sure enough, no hot water there either. I guess it will be a while before I take my shower. Hope it gets resolved today!

    Yikes on the absence of the hot water. Hope it was resolved.

    You get some good deals on the MyMixx freebies. Kroger does one free Friday download most weeks and once in awhile they give us something free, but not as much as you get. If it is perishable and something I don't think we will eat, I don't sign up to load it to my member card, but if it is nonperishable and something we won't eat I get it anyway and donate it to the basket at church that goes the local food pantry. I figure maybe someone will like it and want it.

    Hope your knee gets to feeling better.

    Sorrow to hear about your knee, and I hope the hot water issue is resolved without too much hassle. Feel better!!

    It all sounds good--your free items, knee feeling a bit better, and the possibility of some work. Nice to have the summer "off." but maybe some fall work would be good?
    Rob--we do the same things with the Kroger freebies!
