Good Morning! Its nearly 6:00 A.M. on the first Sunday of March. March came in like a lamb, so look out on March 31st!
My plans for today are to attend Church, cook a family dinner, spend time with family and do some planning for the week. I'd also like to sew a little. :o)
During this week I realized that I am very disorganized. Examples:
1. On February 29th I found my reminder card to have my driver's license renewed by February 22nd! AARGH In my office this is known as NOL (No Operator's License) LOL. AND my nephew is a Sheriff's Deputy who is known to check driver's licenses at the end of the road I live on because its a blind intersection and people can't turn off and run until its too late! Anyway I went after work on Friday to get this done which is the worst time to do so. There were so many people at DMV I couldn't even find a seat! The good news is I passed the vision and sign test and got the *&%^$ thing.
2. I only owed $34.00 on a credit card, but forgot to pay it on time and I'm sure they'll charge me $40.00 late fee. This makes me want to cry!!!
3. I forgot to make sure there was enough money in a bank account that has a draft coming out on the 27th. The bank transferred money to cover it, but charged me $10.00to do so.
4. My meal planning last week was pitiful, but we didn't starve!
I am determined to get back into the habit of being organized. I am going to write down the things I might forget in my organizer and CHECK this daily!
This afternoon I plan to make some foods for the week ahead.
I'm also going to start keeping up with the CVS and Walgreens deals again. But, I only plan to take advantage of the very best deals on the things we use the most. I love being stocked up on toothpaste, toilet paper, shampoo, deodorant, soap, laundry detergent, etc.
Friday was a crazy leap day for me! Not only was it extremely busy at work and I had to get my driver's license renewed, but I also took Dave, our 15 year old dog, to the veterinarian to get him checked out. He has been having accidents in the house, among other things. The diagnosis: He is old and senile. There is medication for senile dogs that might help. But, for the time being the Veterinarian suggested giving him Flintstones vitamins. I would never have thought about doing this. I'm supposed to put 1/2 a Flintstones Complete Vitamin in his canned food a few minutes before he eats it so it can dissolve. This regimen is supposed to make him feel better. He moves around really slow and sometimes I have to carry him up and down the steps. After one vitamin I thought he was more energetic, but maybe this is just my imagination. Maybe I should take some of those Flintstones vitamins!!!
Saturday was a nice day. It wasn't too cold, but was windy. I wanted to hang out our sheets, but the wind was whipping the sheets so bad I couldn't get them on the line. I just took them back inside and dried them in the dryer.
I went to my favorite thrift store and one yard sale and bought nothing. I didn't get to the yard sale early and they were down to the leftovers. The thrift store had the same things they had the last time I was there.
I spent the afternoon sewing and finished a pocketbook that I like very much! I'll post a picture later this week.
Well, I'm off to read the Sunday Bible readings for today and start dinner.
Have a great Sunday!
