    I'm sorry to hear that your cat needed to be put down. We lost our last cat when someone chose to poison him to death just before Christmas one year. When February break rolled around we were ready to get another cat, so we adopted an abused cat from our local Humane Society. That cat is now 11yrs old. We adopted another cat abused cat the following February, he is now 10yrs old. They are the same dark brown tabby stripe with white patches on the face, tummy, and paws. They have improved and healed so much over the years.

    well hubby only had a high school bus run this morning so he came in at 8.15 -it was snowing so nicely -I asked if we could maybe go on a walk and then we could have a nice hot chocolate after from second cup (he has a gift card) -we both need to get a little more fit
    -so we are walking on a flat terrain in nice forest area went down a small incline then we come to an end (I was gonna ask hubby lets turn around and walk back) -only he said here is a short cut up -well it was uneven rocks and dirt because we had a lot of rain last week or 2 it was a bit soft well hubby fell -just a tiny bit I was just behind him -he is resting with a heating pad on his shoulder and I rubbed his neck and shoulder -whewww I guess we should stay on flat ground
    -hubby wanted to walk in our neighbourhood only I said I wanted a hot chocolate after -I guess we both should have said what was on our minds
    -going thru old pictures and reading and starting a new novel -frugal for this week as I am not going out grocery shopping -using up stuff in freezer last night got a few fruit items at no frills

    I just got back from grocery shopping at Sobeys. The kids did great and got free cookies from the bakery. Baby boy fell to sleep as we got home, so he is now napping in his crib. I told my neighbour about the Sobeys sale, so she went there on her lunch break. I ran into her and she used my Air Miles card at checkout because she doesn't have one. I spent $116.84, I used my $10gc from my last trip, I saved $41.67 in discounts & specials, got another free $10gc, used a 50c coupon on the bananas, got 25c back on bananas from Zweet, submitted the receipt to CO51 contest. I also earned 369AM = $38.84 towards another trip. Once these Air Miles are credited to my account, I'll redeem for another $100 Sobeys gift card. I also got a coupon for 7c/L at Shell, this coupon hasn't printed on my other recent trips. We don't fuel up at Shell in town because it is known to have water in their tanks. Anyway, the coupon is valid in Western Canada and I could certainly trade it and others if anyone is interested.

    edit: Sobeys put a $10 off $75 coupon in one of my bags. It is good for Jan 28-29 only and cannot be combined with the flyer coupon. I won't be using it, so I posted it for free on our local garage sale and freebie Facebook pages, hopefully someone else can use it.

    So sorry for the loss of your fur baby. I still miss my dog that we had to put asleep almost 4 years ago. I think of him daily he was such a great dog and friend.

    When the time is right for you, consider another special friend. Hugs

    @coupon girl , I hope your dh doesn't suffer too long.

    Well dh will have Monday off as it's a PD day and he doesn't get paid.

    This weekend we will have our budget meeting, dh doesn't like budget meetings and it showed as January had a lot of unexpected charges which would have be considered when making the budget had he participated.

    I'm feeling emotionally drained with the whole car situation....I can't wait for it to all be over and behind us.

    On a happier note I have decided that within the next 3 years I will take a vacation to China, I've been wanting to go for years. Each year for the last many years I've always taken my tax refund and made purchases for the house and/or family. However, since tax time is just around the corner I have decided that it's time I do something for me. So going forward in the next few years I will save up for a trip of a lifetime (in my opinion). The prices are actually quite reasonable I was surprised. I kept seeing the commercials for Sinomara vacations so checked it out. So atleast I have something to look forward to in the next little while.

    Dh said I'll go along to china and I quickly said how? He looked at me like I had 3 heads....when I told him I would be using my tax refunds....he went ooooooo......I guess he somehow thought our budget could pay for such a vacation....perhaps someday but not anytime soon.

    We don't give ourselves spending $ so we treat our tax returns as "our own money" to do as we wish.

    My tax refunds over the years have purchased a car (no longer alive), a garage, a Kubota tractor and cottage windows & doors and landscaping the property.

    Wishing everyone a great day

    All of you sound so very busy - I am anything but...

    I've had a cold all week, and it's a whopper - guess it's because I haven't had one for a while - so that's been crappy for me.
    I don't usually get whiny or anything, but gee it's enough already with the nose-blowing, sinus/eye hurting, sore throat - and just hoping that the cough doesn't escalate.

    Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
