    Well just got off work and my manager offered me another shift for tonight. Of course I said yes. So that brings me up to 40hrs this week, 40hrs next week, and 40hrs the week after that. I see some bigger paycheques coming my way! I can put a little extra towards the OSAP loans (despite them being in a Grace Period right now)

    TGIF!!! Leftovers of chicken, rice and green beans were in fridge this morning still so I took for my lunch. Short day today, office closes early so will eat at my desk and go to Sally Ann and drop the boxes of clothing off.
    My upright freezer is so organized and beautiful lol. I plan on buying a few more bags of Mccain fries this week for .88 cents after sale and coupon. (cheaper then potatoes it seems! great for when DS had friends over) Since I am tossing basically all of the plastic containers in my house I have a huge empty cupboard. Will move some of my basics up so I can organize better (rice/beans/canned tomatoes etc)

    Have a wonderful and safe long weekend everyone!

    I completed the course last night and got 93% on the final exam. Some of the exam questions were very poorly worded, but I only got 2 wrong. Iím good to go for the next 3yrs for First Aid, CPR (C), and AED training.

    Oh, I already do plenty of that. I eat out a lot more than my budget allows for, but still a fair bit less than most of my generation would. For example, last month was $32.10 on eating out that I didn't really have the money for, and I've already spent $6.08 in the whole 2 days of August so far, but will hopefully be getting the free Ice Cream Sandwich at Marble Slab today for my treat.

    Isn't it a great feeling when you do well on a course? And I experienced much of the same during my time at Brock with Midterms and Exams that the wording seemed to/made absolutely no sense, but still managed to do well on them. Oh well, as long as you do well is all that matters, right?

    Thanks John. Too bad that this exam is from The Red Cross, which only revises every 5yrs. A lot of people will take this poorly worded exam.

    I sold yellow beans from my garden for $10 today. They were gone within 2hrs of being posted. More are still growing on my plants. Twin girl and I are enjoying snacking on them raw.

    I also managed to work through my finances a little too. And if everything works out with paycheques and my hours into the end of the month, I should be able to make at least a $1,000 payment onto my OSAP Loans, maybe even $2,000!! Without going into savings! Which is still hovering around $8,000. Despite this job only being $15/hr, I'm managing to do a lot with it, combine with some Uber Eats driving, and still hopeful for a job at my friends work. That will bring in even more! At this rate, I may in fact have my loans paid in 2yrs or less!

    Good Evening Everyone,
    I managed to take the day off and only responded to one email as our officers were supposed to cleaned and they did not show up so contacted the cleaning company. I also only took 1 call which was from my cousin and only took it as he called a couple times and was worried as normally he would only call once and then send an email. Turns out it was a personal call, looks like future sister-in-law Mom's health has taken a turn. I did not know anything so texted sis who told me what happened so I called cousin back to update him.

    I slept in this morning and woke up with a ton of energy so I decided I wanted to go out and do something. Sadly $$$$ is still a huge issue so I decided we were going grocery shopping as that is in the budget. After seeing all of the amazing produce sales I decided we would go shopping and then I would do a large meal prep for the week to come. Not everyone's idea of fun but it makes me happy, I love chopping and prep work, honestly if I could I would totally do this as a side business as I can chop and prep for hours.

    We got the following:
    6 x Red Peppers $2/lb
    6 x Cucumbers $0.65
    9 x Tomato on the Vine $0.65/lb
    1 x Radish Bunch $1
    1 x Avocado 4- Pack $2.50
    4 x Zucchini $1.00/lb
    2 x Broccoli $1.00
    2 x Carrots 2 lbs $1
    2 x Onions $0.50
    1 x Cantaloupe $1.50
    1 x Watermelon $4
    2 x Potatoes 10 lbs $3
    2 x Celery $1.99

    We also grabbed Milk, Fresh Dill & Fresh Basil

    I was kind of annoyed, really wanted to get some Corn to grill but No Frills had none.

    Now I am prepping everything and tomorrow morning I am going to grill a ton of veggies for the week to come. This way they are ready to go. I have cleaned out the fridge and all older veggies will be grilled with a mix of a few new veggies. As well I plan to make a few Salads as well.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day

    I got the mic stand from fedex yesterday at 11:15am it was what she wanted but she wasnít happy that there wasnít mic clip. So I had to go online yesterday and order not one but two mic clips.

    I donít feel so good today. I woke up early in the morning around 3:30am and talked a bit with some people who owe me some money. Then went back to sleep at 5:30am. It feels like a migraine almost.

    I went to my MH appointment yesterday and she was late by 30mins then told me I didnít have 30mins with her more to speak with her. I want to make a complaint that my time is valuable I almost thought she wasnít there so I was going to leave, until I over heard the receptionist talking. Then they interrupted my conversation. Then Lauren my new case manager ask me what I wanted to talk about during my time there with her when she made the appointment. I donít care if she is new and learning the ropes but my time is an hour not fricken 25mins. I felt like she was trying to get rid of me and when I started crying she did exactly the same thing my mother does when I cry invalidate me. She also told me she had no medical background but she works in the mental health field?!?!? I wonder if she has any training at all in the mental health field?!?!? She was sympathetic not empathetic her lack of knowledge or training in the field showed. I donít find her a good fit at most I find a wall more receptive if I decided to yell at it bringing back my voice.

    I am trying to feel better about my mental health but right now I donít not even close and itís a long weekend. Usually I lock myself away in my room and pretend that things are alright but there not I have hope and despair. And there is no direction because usually my life has direction if there isnít a purpose.

    Anyway I need to find my thermometer to take my temperature.

    Laters
