I did my usual every other week grocery shopping yesterday morning. Of course I don’t like to go out unless I have more than one errand. I usually wait until I have three.
So first to Cox cable to turn in my DVR that I’d had stored in my closet. They continually said it would raise my bill if I brought it back.
When I moved to Tulsa, it was part of my “bundle” and the bill would go up if I didn’t take it. How stupid is that?
So I figured out a way to lower the bill AND rid myself of the DVR taking up space in my closet.
Then to Walmart. We have Walmart Markets here, which are smaller and only have food. Very easy to navigate. And not as much chaos and children screaming.
I never allowed my children to scream in stores. One cry of anger over wanting something I said no to, and they wouldn’t shush, meant we abandoned the cart and immediately vacated the premises.
This bill, which includes TV, home phone and internet, is almost my highest bill. Except for health insurance.
Then to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription.
It is never on before 6 p.m., as I work online during the day.
As you can see, it is weighing heavily on my chest of drawers, and the top drawer won’t shut. I’ve tried to figure out a solution.
I’ve stacked books in the center of the top drawer as tight as I could to support it. But they always somehow come loose when I open the drawer.
Got a solution?
After my post last week on vulvar vestibulitis, and reading all the comments and advice, I am off most processed sugar. My heart is a bit broken, as I dearly love chocolate and sweets.
And I haven’t been drinking my coffee. Yeah, I’m about as with it now as a gopher in a hole with no caffeine consumption. (I totally made up that analogy.)
Got to somehow get this under control if I ever want to wear real clothes and actually sit again.
Here’s where I also get protein. Beans. Particularly black beans. I might make some nachos and dress them up with black beans and veggies.
The sauerkraut is for when I make a turkey panini sandwich and it is sort of like a Reuben.
Turkey bacon and sliced turkey in a package. It is about as far as I go in the meat department. I haven’t even looked at meat prices in a year. But I’m sure they’re over the top.
Moving right along…
We’re all gardening right now, so save your egg shells for the garden.
And here’s another tip with eggs. If you’re making a container garden, put one regular uncracked egg in the pot.
Here’s why. The egg will decompose. As it does, it provides the seeds with nourishment.

When I do it, they get to the line of cinnamon and turn right back around. Some people have told me it doesn’t work for them.
