    Happy Saturday! I'm awake so thinking I should just get up. Tons of laundry to do so will get that sorted. Then take meat out to do some batch cooking. A whole chicken for sure! I have many in my mom's freezer!

    Reitman's has a blouse sale but the bell-sleeved top is not included. Noticed the website has a true blue (Verona Blue) version of the top that I don't recall seeing in stores. Now a #want item!
    BurdaStyle's January issue has a plus-sized lingerie/pyjama section-sewists may wish to get a copy before they are sold out. That means I need to get one too. I've seen a preview of the February issue on the German publisher's Twitter and website. Have to compare content between the English and German issues (page count and articles).

    Today's gray skies need all the bright Post-It Notes I can use. Where is Ms. Sunshine today?

    My honey painted the 1st coat on the closet this morning. Then we went running around. No Frills, SDM, Food Basics and RCSS. Tons of deals on fresh stuff. My mom has left for warmer Temps for the next 5 weeks so I had to go grab all her perishables. Score!! Pineapple, apples. Bananas. Yogurt. Cucumber. Bag of carrots. Homemade veggie dip. I also took most of my meat from her freezer. Oh my. I have 3 family packs of ground beef and 2 whole chickens thawing. Going to cook up a storm tomorrow. Many more of each to use up next month. I also cut up all the strawberries, pineapple and veggies for the dip. My teen will be happy to have "ready to grab" food.

    Dinner tonight is an amazing pasta my man makes with bacon, grape tomatoes and Alfredo sauce. It is so good. Pull BSCB and bacon from freezer. We bought the tomatoes but have everything else on hand.

    Evening all,

    I have a call into the car dealer, they some how charged us plate stickers for the whole year but the car only has stickers until May (believe me it's not an accident). They told me to call back on Monday when the secretary is there, I guess she will have to check the files as the finance guy has no access which I don't believe. They offered to refund the difference on a gift card which I politely declined as this is a provincial (law) matter and not something to just discard. They can't deny the charges they are in black in white and cannot add to licensing fees.

    Does anyone have dot protect or VIN etching on their vehicles, does it lower your rate. I've asked for a letter to provide to insurance provider so that they will have this in their files. I was charged a anti theft fee (long story short I won't get into it as after the warranty I will be getting that back....again long story), they told me I have etching....BUT I don't (haha) easy enough to prove but I'm requesting the letter so I have them by their necks and in a blaten lie. However, my car does have dot protect which was never mentioned at anytime during the deal. So basically I want a letter stating I have etching which is what I was told I have and charged for BUT have dot protect which is not even the same thing or remotely similar. I'm trying to be polite BUT with the dealership it's been extremely difficult to bite my tongue and not point out the fees that I never should have been charged. Being the smart cookie I am I have a screen shot of the add for the sale price etc....so they can't deny me BUT will have to admit to wrongly been charged etc. for items as Ontario has a law that all in pricing no suprises with exception being licensing fees & HST.

    Thruthfully there are a few sketchy things we were charged for with the new vehicle, I won't rock the boat until our 30 day warranty has finished. But I am prepared, you just can't trust anyone sadly.

    Wishing everyone a great evening
    2019 is the year that we continue to save before we buy!!!

    I agree, I would not accept a gift card. It's pretty suspect since they know who the car is registered to and the birthdate.
    We met with the 1st of 3 kitchen contractors. This is going to be an expensive adventure. We are replacing all appliances as well. It's time and we have waited a long time for this Reno. I am excited though, not looking forward to the chaos.

    Good Evening Everyone

    Today is Mom's Birthday we were supposed to do Dinner & Movie but I am a little under the weather. I came home Thursday night with a massive sinus headache and Friday i woke up sick. I am feeling a bit better today but noise is still really getting to me. I took some pills this morning and was able to go to a late lunch with Mom, bro and bro's gf.

    After lunch we went and did some shopping, we have been lacking fresh produce this week. When Mom went shopping they were out of everything on sale so it has been sparse all week. Decided to go to the local Chinese market ad they had a number of our Veggie Staples on sale. We got the following all on sale:
    Napa Cabbage
    Mushrooms
    Red Peppers
    Blueberries
    Oranges
    Strawberries
    Lettuce

    I am hoping I am getting over what else this is as I am hoping ti do a large batch cook tomorrow to prepare for the upcoming week. I am thinking so far I will make a stir fry and a soup. Off to Pinterest to see what I can come up with. Have a wonderful night everyone.

    Nancy good luck with the dealership.

    Angela February will be a busy month for you and your family.

    Lilo I think kitchen renovations are the most stressful. We did our right after we move in as the kitchen wasn't functional it was stressful but so worth it when it was done.

    Lol, it's why the whole house is remodelled. But the kitchen just seemed so daunting that we left it until the end. We may be taking part of our oldest sons room but he keen for the Reno so not adverse to the idea. It's just his closet. Then we will build a wardrobe for him.

    I have 106 meatballs in the oven right now. We went grocery shopping later than I had planned, so I made a supper of snack foods. Baby carrots, celery sticks, dried cranberries, garlic sausage, marble cheese, garlic dill pickles, crackers, and a glass of milk. We'll have meatballs as part of tomorrow's lunch. I saved 40% off my groceries at Sobeys today.

We have had a company membership for years and my husband loves to go once in a while for office things. I have seriously considered inventing a Costco flask to make the trip less painful for me, it would come with a really buff cutie that will drive me home and play jenga in my fridge while trying to put my giant sized items away.
    I do find Costco's pharmacy area worthwhile. My generic Claritin 124 pack costs about $14 which pays for my membership as it is so expensive at most retail locations.
