    @coupon girl -love your haircut story. Hope you are feeling better after that long wait at the hospital.
    @SassyAshley -yay for having an assistant and a dedicated photo space for the product photos! You are minding what your back tells you. When you get your back close to and at normal, you will be assessing every heavy load that comes your way and say do I need to take something 20min before I lift or do I just do it quickly and not lift anything heavy for the rest of the day?

    Saturday night, sibling brought home two pizzas from Domino's after he finished! Quite a surprise but much preferred over his other two fave places for pizza.
    OK, I'm not with the rain. So many downpours yesterday and a few this morning! Ms Sunshine took her sweet time to show up before noon but we needed to see some sun!
    Sunday, after my curtain quest (see First World problems in Rants), I did a can walk (80cents) and also bought a tin of tuna at Walmart. Cooked 5 packages of Kraft Dinner for lunch (and many future meals). Later in the day,knowing Monday was going to be wet, I did another can walk-9 containers plus saw two big bottles at home. Monday-read through a book on economics (very interesting to me) and ate lots of candy canes. Finished off the last three slices of coffee cake.

    Cashed in my containers today ($1.30)and added 25 cents from my last 75 cents of money to get the bank fee covered. Victory! Did a quick fridge check this morning and gave the last of the celery and my spring salad mix the toss. Retrieved my Napa cabbage and washed, spun and chopped it up for the fridge. So when snackies attack in the evening, I have my crisp and crunchy food ready.
    Forgot that the mail service was operational yesterday-like some big unionized workplaces, Canada Post did not get Family Day off as their contract already has a certain amount of days off in it (ditto auto factories). If I request an auto insurance quote, I could be entered to win a BMW (pic looks to be of the 320i model, a two-door) but I recycled the promotion instead.

    @lizzie bargain -happy that you saw Toronto in milder temperatures!Hopefully no wind tunnel effects met your travels in the big city. Wonder if @Andit would know the eatery you went to?

    It's been funny to see "white" steam come off the melting snow as the rain hits it today.

    Value Village has a 50% off winter clearance sale on selected items on now until Thursday. In case anyone needs winter togs replaced, this is your sale! E-mail was sent on Sunday (the day I popped into my local store and saw a similar red winter jacket in medium size for $9.99.).

    Over the weekend, I was thinking how to maximize the $25 Loblaws gift card when shopping time occurs. If I were to buy a small jug of laundry detergent, it will be taxable (same with many personal care items). My toss-up will be on getting non-taxable grocery items at the same time trying to ensure there is some Canadian content in the mix. But the primary focus is getting food items that contain protein (more energy for winter).

    I ate the last Lindor chocolate from the box that DH bought me for Valentine's Day after supper tonight. We don't really celebrate it but he bought 1/2 price ones on the 15th for me.

    I have started Spring cleaning and at this point the master bedroom is done. Two boxes of stuff ended up at the local SA. Stock room is next on the list for tomorrow.

    It has done nothing but rain all day today and it seems like the sump pump has never stopped. There is lots more grass showing and the neighbor's backyard is totally flooded.

    Hoping everyone had a great day!

    I picked up a box of books and toys for free from a lady on a local garage sale Facebook group. They are appropriate for about baby to Kindergarten.

    I made a 1/2 batch of my auntís baked cheese loaf. I rarely make it, itís expensive and high calorie. No gatherings to attend and friends have t wanted to get together, so this was my way around it.

    We dropped dhís truck off to get the basic detailing done, in hopes of finding dhís wedding ring. If itís not there, then there is a chance that it rolled out at our sonís school that morning when he was dropped off. Snow and a white gold wedding band.... Dh has agreed to let me post a lost advertisement, if itís not found tomorrow.

    The part to fix dhís truck mirror is in. We need to drop it off on Friday. I donít have any daycare kids Thursday or Friday this week. I might drop Dh off at work on Friday, that way I still have my van for the day.

    I'll be on the lookout for diapers this week. Not only does the daycare go through wipes at an alarming rate, they also do for diapers. DD2 always takes her time and they rush to get the kids in the cribs around naptime or high chairs at feeding time, so I see three diaper changes in 15 minutes on her record.

    When DD1 was small, we put her in cloth right up to toilet training, but with the car and car seat, I would be adjusting the seat each time and DD2 has only just begun to get in it without crying. The daycare we would like to put her in might have availability in July so I don't want to buy too much as the cost of diapers and wipes are all included in the price.

    This transition to PC Optimum hasn't helped as they seem to have forgotten I buy diapers. I used to get 4000 points on PC diapers but the offers are so random now. I wish I had bought more when the offer used to be 8000 points on PC diapers and almost free! It's too bad I can't predict the future in terms of diapers sales!

    Tomorrow I will be taking the car in for it's e-test.

    Tax forms have all been issued, so DH just has to put a small dent in his RRSP contribution limit and we'll be waiting for that refund!

    I just took a peek at the new Sobeys app. 3 Day special, Fri - Sun, 75AM = $10. Too bad I just redeemed $40 in AM when I was there on Sunday. I might still use this promo since I still have some Air Miles and I donít see a minimum redemption amount.

    Morning laundry (handwashing) had to be done after breakfast. On the subject of socks, the two new pairs bought this month are pilling badly from wear in my new boots. Think I'll be lucky to get 3 months' wear from them. Have noticed a Nov pair of socks is about half-worn at the heels (want one more month of wear to end of March). Seems to be a pricey way to be in socks this winter.

    Not sure what supper will be. Last night I ate a few of the discounted apple Larabars I had in the cupboard and some quantity of my Napa cabbage. This morning, I did not want the Kraft Dinner so cooked macaroni to have with butter and spices, plus ate the last Red Delicious apple (have noticed that reduced price RD apples change very quickly in the fridge while I can have reduced price Granny Smith apples stay in the fridge crisper for at least a week with no major changes).

    I was on the Bay's website and could not locate those tub strips that had been labeled on the site as a Home Outfitters product but the package was Rubbermaid. Have to see if I can find my website login at home and check tomorrow what the invoice on the site said.
    This is the tape at Home Hardware I'm thinking needs to be applied to our basement steps to improve footing as the treads are wooden but have no runner or carpet on them. http://homehardware.ca/en/rec/index....tt=safety+tape

    We dropped dhís truck off last night because it was scheduled for a cleaning today. I just received the call that it is ready to go. I asked the lady and she found his wedding ring! It was under the front console. I didnít remember that the console is removable. Very relieved that it was found. Hopefully it didnít cost too much to get the vehicle cleaned. I texted Dh at work to tell him the good news.

    edit: It certainly cost more than I was quoted when I booked it in, but Dh is just happy to have his ring back.
