Lost Weekend

November 4th, 2013 at 06:49 am

It almost seemed like a lost weekend. First of all, my BFF called on Friday night and begged off, due to a bad cold. I was okay with that -- didn't want to get a cold. Surprise ! I'm getting one anyway!

On Saturday morning my son called and asked if I could watch the boys while they car-shopped. As it turned out, the boys were with me until after supper, but my son and DIL succeeded in finding a great car. They bought a Buick Rendezvous, a 2004 model but in amazing shape! 75K miles. They paid under $7K. Sounded like a pretty good deal to me. They paid cash. My son is a chip off the old block! (Me, thankfully, not the ex!)

After a full day with the boys my house was wrecked, and I was exhausted. On Sunday morning I started putting things back in order. I did three loads of laundry, and did some cooking -- I made sloppy chicks filling, a chicken broccoli casserole and chicken salad. Also some cream of celery soup.

The kids invited me over for pizza at lunchtime, and I spent some time playing games with my son and older grandson. Then ran some errands and went home, where I spent a good part of the day sorting clothes and putting away summer clothes, as well as clothes that are too small. Then I watched "Up in the Air" on broadcast TV, and suddenly, the weekend was over! It just disappeared.

I was so looking forward to having an extra hour of sleep this morning, but actually, getting up felt just the same.

My spending:

Groceries: $36
Home Depot: $22
PetSmart: $41
Laundry: $4.50

At the grocery, I bought:

Granola bars
Almond milk
2 packages muffin mix
Chocolate milk
Sourdough bread
Kitty Litter

Still experimenting with muffins -- the mix was cheap, but didn't produce much, and the blueberries, of course, were fake.

My Home Depot shopping was another storage bin (bought one last week, too), and a 3-pack of spot bulbs for the kitchen can lights.

The PetSmart purchase was a box of 12 aquarium filters plus a $1 donation for homeless pets.
