Illin' again

January 13th, 2006 at 12:59 pm

Day two at home. It feels like the flu with general body aches, but I also have something sinus related going on. I'm rinsing with saline (SinuCleanse that I purchased in bulk at a very reduced price last fall. So glad to have it on hand rather than running around looking for a good deal.) That and a whole lot of sleeping should do the trick. I dont look forward to spending my three day weekend in bed, but I guess if that is what it takes, that is what it takes.

In a moment of stir craziness I talked DH to coming to run a couple of errands with me. He drove b/c I literally feel weak in the knees. We went to the health food coop ($35.xx) and the grocery store ($4.00). The coop had their amazing holiday pies on sale, so we got three. They have no trans fats, all organic, etc. We save them as a treat. We are considering ordering a case just to have them on hand when the store no longer carries them.

I need to start tracking grocery prices again. I know we are way down from what we were spending this fall, but I would like to see just how low we can go. We are making a concerted effort to eat more at home. We've been out a couple of times, but usually have a B1G1Free coupon when we go.

I am collecting $1.00 coupons for SwheatScoop in the health magazines that the coop offers. PetCo/PetSmart has the litter on sale from time to time so I use them then. Its still expensive stuff, but I prefer it. Its easier to clean up than clay and a good deal lighter too. It just seems healthier because it has less dust.

To keep me from going totally insane with boredom, I'm going to search the public library website for some of the titles that have been mentioned in other posts - The Introvert Advantage and Stop Working, Start Living. I have a list of some others that have caught my eye. I try not to let that list get too long otherwise it feels like it gets out of hand. Depending on how I feel, I may go pick them up tomorrow.

Recieved a $10 off coupon in the mail from The Vitamin Shoppe. I used to order from them, but went to a competitor. I'm going to compare prices, which are pretty much the same between the two. But with the coupon, VS is a better deal. Shipping is the same at both places. $5.

I bit the bullet and made a huge payment on my Discover card - $825. I have two other items budgeted for until the end of the month. I really want to get this card paid off. Its one of three. When I make these huge payments, I realize that I could be putting this money toward retirement and getting off the treadmill sooner rather than later. As it is, the pay off date keeps getting farther and farther out. My own fault, I know. But I am working on it and I do feel a bit more motivated this year.

Really, nothing hot, hip or happening to report. Just the rantings of a sick woman who is really, really bored with sleeping 20 hours a day.
