    I havenít done it yet. I made Salisbury steak from scratch for dinner I added array of spices and things to it by eyeballing it and guessing what would taste good. And it turned out awesome possum.

    I was suppose to be having a meeting with my support worker today and he is not even at work this is the second time in a row. So I messaged everyone in the building to look out for the chick whose on. What a waste of a day I have to wait until evening staff come on which is at 3pm I gotta somehow go back to sleep now that I am still laying here it hasnít happened. Well I mean I went to bed at 11pm, woke up at 3:30am then been awake ever since. Itís now 9am and I am so exhausted. Every time I roll over I will sleep for a few mins then wake up. Itís not really restful.

    Finally that person who said they wanted the hockey stuff I was giving away is coming today. I took down the post on the group page of the ďpay it forward MR/PM/POCOĒ

    I messaged the new katimavik group leader of Calgary the program for this round starts January 9th. I did katimavik when I was 21 and 14 days before the program ended I turned 22. Itís a national Youth Volunteer program for ages 18-25, when I did the program itís was 17-21. Big difference but they lost the funding I believe a couple years ago thanks to the liberal government. Who said they were going to restore it but waited 4 years to give them pennies. Now to go you have to raise $1000, before they gave you a $1000 for completion. I did over 25,000 volunteer hours in 9 months. I was so poor then they gave us $21 dollars a week for extras that they didnít cover like coffee or junk food or movie ticket etc. They covered everything else like transportation, food, feminine products, condoms, cultural based activities, and learning French and English, when I did the program of course. Itís much different. They do lots of reconciliation with the aboriginals they still learn French and English but now they also teach a aboriginal language. They go for 6 months and live in 2 places within Canada. There around 100K alumni within Canada since the program started in 79í. It was started by Jacque Herbert and Pierre Trudeau. They both dead now of course but Justin Trudeau is not like his father at all itís disappointing to watch him on stage.

    Anyways itís not politics here...

    I have to go to the store and grab garbage bags today. I have nothing but found a extra large orange garbage bag to use for my exploding garbage last night. Itís sitting by my door I need to take it down whenever I get a chance.

    Gotta go laters.

    Today was for me to get everything for my younger DD to take back to University. I am organized.
    Will make a vegetarian chili later for her to take back. I will miss her very much .
    Also did all my fur baby laundry.
    Dinner is Baked chicken ,Spanish rice dessert home made apple pie.
    Also making croutons since I have lots of stale bread. And like my oven to be full when I am using it
    Hoping you all are having a great day

    We had bbq steak for lunch today. We always eat out big meal Sunday at 2 because the older son works Sunday night. I went to No Frills today and spent 20.00 and that is groceries for the week. I also noticed they had Knorr soup on for .94 cents and I had 10 coupons for 1.00 off each. While we wonít use these I never miss a free product that I can then give to someone who needs it. In addition to eating what we have on hand I am just not buying anything I have more than a months supply of. I stopped buying laundry detergent and dishwasher tabs about 8 months ago and it looks like I can wait at least another 3 months before I need to buy dishwasher tabs. I had to buy sugar today because we were totally out, that never happens. Thankfully the 1.44 sale came just in time.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.

    Morning! Back at work today. Had 513 emails to sort through... Seriously. Just sorting stuff this morning and then will start tackling the piles this afternoon.
    Brought all my food for the day. Banana for breakfast. Taco salad for lunch. Boiled eggs and yogurt for afternoon snack. Packed DS a lunch today too so we are off to a great start!

    Cleaned up the budget today. I hadn't been able to look at my credit card transactions the past 2+ weeks I was off (guess it was registered to my work email and I wasn't logging on to change it!) All is good and after all payments/refunds processed I will have a credit of $400 so will cover the next week plus ( I don't plan on any big shopping really so hopefully just stay as a credit for awhile). Paid all bills outstanding. Transferred $100 to Christmas account and started a Mad Money envelope and started it off with $90. PC Points are at approx. $310 and I am hoping not to touch them and let them build.
    I cooked up a storm yesterday so dinner will be quick to put together tonight and tomorrow night. The bank account is at $0. I transferred all funds to designated accounts and the balance to savings.

    I have all my daycare kids today.

    Yesterday I put stuff in our new luggage for our Cuba trip. Iím about 90% packed for our family of 5. Dh was making fun of how carefully I had picked out the clothes. I have a few dress clothes to wash and some items that just canít be packed until the day before. Weíre having a pretty mild winter so far. Dh and I were hoping to miss a cold snap, but it doesnít look like it. Weíre all excited for our first trip to Cuba. First time flying with our children too. Weíll certainly make some memories.

    February Casino offers are posted to my account. I booked 2 free nights. I can cancel the day of so I just booked them in case we felt like going. (We don't have any shows in Feb so it would just be a night away to relax etc)
    I also have a large food credit for the month so will be able to go to the steak house for a nice dinner again (and still eat for free if we stay our 2 nights). Having this gives me more incentive to cook at home and no take out when I know we can eat for free there. (nice to go for drive for free breakfast or dinner just to get out)
