Well, yesterday was a bust and today wasn’t much better. My accomplishment for the day was grocery shopping. I managed to get everything on my list while remaining under budget. Under budget means that I had less than a dollar in change in my pocket when I got home….but I had everything on my list. That doesn’t happen very often and I was so proud of myself. Later, my husband asked if I got plain potato chips to go with his dip…oops no…..but it wasn’t on the list. I also didn’t get bread for sandwiches next week. Also, not on the list although it should have been. I did get myself 2 bottles of wine though, which I never do so I’m good with it. They can wrap the lunchmeat in tortilla shells which I DID get. Yay me!
I’ve resorted to buying only one week’s worth of lunch food and snacks at a time because if I buy 2 weeks’ worth they still only last one week. I used to hide them, but I’ve run out of hiding places. I make the boys buy their own lunch supplies (mostly). They are 20 and 22 and have full time jobs so, no, I don’t feel bad about that, but they still come in and eat everything I buy for their sister. She does her share of double dipping too. By Friday, she’ll be lucky to get a sandwich and a pop-tart. Hmmm….I didn’t get Pop-Tarts either. I think I’m making myself feel worse as I go here. Nah.
I got everything I needed to make the recipes I chose from Mom’s Recipe Box. Now we just need to see if I actually get them made. I’m betting on myself to do it, at least for this week.
Have a great evening everyone and maybe we’ll talk tomorrow!
