End of the weekend...

January 19th, 2009 at 06:05 am

I went shopping this weekend and got some great deals on clothes for the grandkids. I spent $71, but before sales and discounts the items would have been $162. Makes me shudder to think about the mark-up on clothes. These will go into the gk's Easter Baskets.

We went grocery shopping today and got everything we needed for the week...and came in well under budget. We spent just over $100, which is almost $40 under. If we keep this up, I will need to readjust the budget. Tonight, the hub made bbq boneless porkchops...they were so yummy. We have meals planned for the whole we should have several no spenders this week..

I start earning an extra week vacation in April...which will bring me to 4 weeks and 4 days!!! I am so grateful for the generous time off. I love being able to take a day here and there, aside from the week long vacations.

My mom broke her foot a coule of weeks ago.poor thing..and Tuesday we have an orthopedic surgeon appt to find out what we need to do about it. Hopefully, there will be a fairly quick and easy fix...I guess I will know more on Tuesday.

Oh..and the best news...I put my jeans on size smaller than I have been wearing AND THEY FIT...Look out Puerto I come!!!! YAY
