Terrible Cold

June 24th, 2013 at 09:41 pm

Oh boy, am I sick. I felt a cold coming on on Friday, but met my commitments on the weekend, which included having the grandsons overnight on Saturday and making a Mexican birthday meal for my DIL on Sunday. Last night I thought I was feeling pretty good.

My mistake. I was only coming down with the real thing. Today I have a raging headache, a stuffy, runny nose, a deep, hacking cough and I'm dizzy as all get out. I called in sick and told them I would probably be in tomorrow. Now that it's 3:30 I wonder, because I am no better. If I am in the same shape tomorrow I guess I will drag myself to the doctor to make sure it is not an infection.

I did two loads of laundry on the weekend for a total of $3.00. I also went grocery shopping. Despite using my $20 coupon, and $4.25 in other coupons, I spent $36.54. I had not intended to go much above $20, but I had that dinner to make, and other things to stock up on, like kitty litter and pantiliners. Anyway, the receipt says my total savings was $40.34, which counts the coupons and store savings. Or 54%.

Here is what I got for $37:

Jiffy corn bread mix
90 oz. Tortilla chips
2 L Ginger ale
Can of corn
3 packets taco seasoning
2 8 oz. packages of Teddy Grahams
30 lbs. kitty litter
16 oz. yogurt
40 count Kotex pads
2 packs Scotch Brite pads
1 bottle wine
2 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2 plum tomatoes
1 head lettuce
6 oz. raspberries
1 avocado
1 lb. baby carrots
l lb. load sourdough bread

I had to go back to get another can of corn and a half gallon of almond milk, but I don't have that receipt to hand right now. I'll find it when my head clears!
