Preparing for the week ahead. I dread Mondays! This week should be interesting. One of the kiddos is taking a swimming course through school this week and well I'm a nervous. wreck. I plan on being at the pool everyday just to keep an eye on the kiddo. I also have scheduled my surgery for later this month. I've dropped a total of 8 pounds in the last 10 days. I anticipate another 5-10 before surgery. I have been watching what I eat as to not bring on a gall bladder attack and "knock wood" its been working so far. I've cooked at home 9 out of 10 days. I'm shooting for 13 days out of the next 15. The kiddos are eating foods they wouldn't have even looked at before. I am following FRUGAL QUEEN'S lead and taking stock of my fridge and cabinets to see what I can use and minimize my shopping list.
The weather is FINALLY cooling down here. Tonight we are in the 60's which is sooo nice! I love the cool weather :) This past Saturday I went to a couple of garage sales. I was so happy I did. I found two brand new in the box TV antennas for $7.50. I set one up in Kiddo2's room. By Kiddo2's reaction you would have thought K2 won the lottery! It was only a few months ago that we had more channels than we knew what to do with. Funny how it has worked out for the best. I also found a Dallas Cowboys sheet set and comforter for $6 :) Put it through the wash and once out it quickly made its way to its new home!
I also found a few other items for Ebay and already have turned a nice profit! I drive by the mall and lately have had no desire to go in. I keep thinking I can spend that money much more wisely and am really trying to.
Wishing everyone a great week !
