Friday, Yay! (2 of 2)

January 8th, 2016 at 04:50 pm

I couldn't think of a name for my post today, other than one celebrating the fact that it is the end of my work week. Two days off from answering phones (and the one incessant man who keeps calling asking for information and getting annoyed when I try to find out where exactly he's trying to catch the bus at - I cringe when I hear his voice. Oh well.)

I cashed out for a $25 PayPal from Swagbucks last night. Today I got 200 swagups because my Groupon and Living Social purchases just happened to be within the timeframe of a shopping promotion (not on purpose.)

I've been reading Forks Over Knives the past couple days at work (Kindle app on computer Big Grin ) and the book has some pretty appealing recipes.

I haven't made any goals/resolutions/ etc. but in trying to keep this month low-spend, I'm also trying to eat as much as possible from what I already have on hand. Since treats tend to go fast .. that means I haven't been eating as much junk. The scale is liking this.

So .. anyway ... I'm really working on eating more healthfully. Both to save money, and to maybe see if I could get rid of my allergies so I could stop taking Allegra!

Today at work I got called into the staff meeting and was given a certificate of recognition. I guess that's all there is to that. Oh well, I guess that certificate (with the text my boss wrote) will be a good addition to my application for the librarian position ... being an asset and customer service oriented and all. Smile
I'm continuing to do well with my minigoal #1. I'm not quite sure I'm ready to say it's a habit yet .. but I think it's pretty close to that.

So, January 16 I'll probably add a second minigoal. Smile
In January so far, other than bills, I have had 7 NSDs. Big Grin

    Being able to get rid of Allegra would probably be great for your body as well as your hip pocket, to give your body a break from the chemicals. Congratulations with being given a certificate of recognition, that's awesome! And good work with your mini-goal! I can't say I've been doing so well with mine, but I guess as long as the main goals are accomplished that's the most important thing.

    I agree - would dearly love to get rid of the expense and the chemicals. Just can't yet, otherwise I suffer majorly.

    Thanks Smile Yep, the main goals really are the most important.

    Nice job on the work recognition, all those achievements help form a picture in the minds of potential employers.

    Have you seen an allergist? Could you try allergy shots?

    Are you looking to work in the schools again?

    I love cooking from what I have on hand. Keeps that grocery bill WAY down! It's the fruits and veggies though that always inflate the bill. But they're so needed and so good! You should try the Skinny Taste too. Really good stuff Smile

    Thanks Alice4Now.

    Allison - I saw an allergist when I was in elementary school. They gave me the back prick test - was allergic to about 70% of the environmental things, but not food. I have thought about seeing one again - that really would be a good idea since my allergies seem to last year round and make me miserable!

    I am applying for a librarian position at a local community college ... not sure how much of a chance I have of getting it though.

    I've had Skinny Taste (Cow?) before - yum, yum! But so expensive!

    Good luck on the job! I hope you get an interview!!!
