Long, busy day

November 14th, 2005 at 07:29 pm

I so did not want to get up this morning to exercise. I came so close to talking myself into sleeping in the extra hour. But then I talked myself back into it. Reminded myself that I had been doing so well. Reminded myself that I've gotten in at least 4 workouts a week since Sept 28, and now is not the time to take a chance on breaking that cycle. So I got up, did my warmup, and then did my Pilates routine. I'm starting to get much better on many of the moves, but still am having SO much trouble with the roll-up. Hopefully it will come with time and practice.

Work was SO busy today! From the moment I got there, through the entire whole day, I barely had time to breathe. Then one of the surveyors calls me a little before 4 to tell me he was on his way. I told him I had enough to keep me busy till at least 4:30, so I'd be there. Long story short - three calls later, he ended up getting there at 5:15!!! By the time I was finished with him, it was 5:45, and way too late to go pick up my check from the employment agency. Good thing I'm not depending on it to live on!

When I got home, dad had cooked supper. He used some of the Morningstar honey roasted chicken wings (gotten on sale), made up the package of Hungry Jack EZ mashed potatoes (free w/coupon), and the GG frozen box of gean bean cassarole (on sale). All in all, a scrumptious, filling, and inexpensive meal. Smile

After 7th Heaven, I went to Walmart and bought a gift card. Why you might ask? Well the cheapest gas I could find was $2.11 -- Walmart had their gas for ..... $2.11. So, with the gc, it was only $2.08!! Just a few cents more, and we'll be back to under $2!!

I think Monkey doodles wants some loving. He jumped up onto my lap as I was typing and is trying to get at the keyboard. Smile What a funny cat. Smile Smile

Walmart Gas: $19.50 ($2.08/gallon - had about 40 miles worth of gas left, but that would just get me to work, and leave me stranded for $2.18/gallon gas!)

Walmart: $3.xx junkfood Frown (I just needed some choclate -really!)

Keeping It Frugal in Texas,
