    Good earlier evening!!!
    Today was ok,I had 4 hours to do my french text I did it in 1:15 hours,just waiting on my result.
    Rest of the afternoon I had the choice to get my time motivated and go home and it is what I did...Just relaxing and thinking...
    The problem is I will not enter in the other school the supposed november 14 date,no places but still on the waiting list and pretty sure for december..dont know the exact date for now...that suck..because that means after I will be finished my 3-4 weeks of english las book of secondary 4 since I will be finish the requesting matter for my program I will be cut for 1 month....so..a big hole in my pocket...I am not very happy and pissed right now.. Will need to redo the budget...
    Off to get shower and writhe my questions for my appointment with my doctor tomorrow after supper....
    And maybe I will have my result for my exam online before bed
    Have a good evening and night

    Good thing if I will not have to work in my book anymore the evening and the week end not much....just do it at my lenth of time
    And during this 1 month maybe tackle more of my unfinished summer endless to do list..trying to think positive.

    Good Morning Everyone,
    Thank you @coupon girl

    I am feeling much better today, mentally which is helping me feel better physically.

    I emailed the insurance agent last night laid it all out because now the other issue is the car is due back Saturday but I have not heard that my car is coming back. I know insurance said they were going to call the mechanic this week to find out what the delay is (I know it is getting the parts) so maybe they will have an update on my car coming back. Like I said if it is coming back Monday/Tuesday of next week I will go without a car for a few days.

    I quickly looked at the flyers last night but I need to sit down and make an official list, from what I saw there are some good deals to be had.

    Need to finish the projects I started yesterday but did not finish.

    Plus it is a work day so we shall see what comes my way today.

    Happy Thursday
    2022 is going to be my year, the year I find organization in my life and the year I focus on myself,
    follow along as tackle day to day life and whatever else 2021 throws at me:

    We have success, the car drama is over.

    Insurance called me this morning in all their years of doing this has never had this happen. They weren't even sure how to deal with it but was going to send it to their inhouse specialist that all they do is work with Rental Car companies.

    It was probably 30 to 60 seconds after I hung up the phone with Insurance, the Rental car company finally I called me back. They say someone must have entered the wrong license plate and that is the issue. I understand but I also pointed out that no one believed me I still had the car and also no one seemed concerned I still had the car and they agree that was not right.

    I will be so happy to get my car back and return this rental.

    But, I will happy dance for now that is over.

    I went to their website but I won't bother with a call. The one thing I can do is visit other pharmacies in area to see if they have old stock left on shelves at higher prices ie. Shoppers and IDA.

    @SassyAshley VICTORY Dance party at your place tonight! Don't hold back on the music! WOOOHOOO!!! Glad Insurance is involved too on the matter. Rental co needs to figure out who the someone was on the day that reservation is closed. Can't believe it to so long for follow-up call.

    @barbis9 Only one coat in current Giant Tiger offerings among the winter coats has a storm flap with snaps-the textured oversize parka for $95/$99. Others are all zipper only.
    That is why I won't let go of current T-Max coat from Denver Hayes (Marks brand) I found in VV about two & half years ago. Makes for a good coat around house (basement or when I snooze in early am on sofa-learning to get there if I'm up to do an early laundry load while others sleep in bed) or lap "rug" on cold nights.

    In fact, I seldom see storm flaps on coats. Even the Sport Chek catalogue in yesterday's fistful of admail hardly has storm flaps unless it's some kind of ski/board coat. Most good jackets seem to be in the $300 range...use your Triangle Rewards and any offers to bring the cost down.

    Still waiting for community paper bundle to materialize. Just had #2 chai latte of day-seem to need it to get anything done in afternoon. Bro made tacos this morning ( I missed yesterday's meal because I had gone to nap and would not get up for tacos) and I was there for breakfast.

    Laundry's done, vacuuming of main room is done, main bathroom has been tidied and dishes are put away. Mom ticked me off-instead of waiting for her friend's pickup outside before pickup time, she was still not ready when friend showed up minutes early. I could not watch end of show so I went to my room while Bro entertained friend in meantime. I poured down the kitchen sink the jug of Palmolive OXY detergent afterwards, I was so mad that Mom pulled this stunt. Ongoing issues with time management and respecting boundaries regarding visitors to home with her. I am going to go to the afterlife with plenty of additional anger.

    Nice surprise coupon in my e-mail account: Jane's Foods sent a $2 off printable for any Jane's Classics Fish (450g to 640g varieties) or Ultimates Fish (575g to 615g varieties). My name is on the coupon. Expiry is end of November 2022. Guess it has paid off entering past years' Jane's contests for chicken strip coupons and chances to win cash/Visa cards (did not see that contest this year) and keeping on their e-mail list for the odd random e-mail!

    Good Morning Everyone,
    I really need to get back on track with everything. I just feel so far behind with life, I feel behind at work, the house needs help and dinners have not been the best lately as my anxiety is messing with my tummy.

    Last night, I wrote a meal plan for the week, it is quite large, normally I aim for 9 to 10 meals we could have, but we are not good at on this day we are having this. But I think I have 13 or 14 meal options for this week. I might change up some of the side dishes as the week goes on, I have a lot of meals as of right now I am planning to serve with Rice, might swap some out for potatoes.

    Wrote my grocery list, there isn't a lot we need/want but there are a few good deals I want to pick up. The only downside is a number of items I need, I won't be able to price match so I am going to have to go to multiple stores. I also really need to go to Costco but I keep putting it off but this is the last weekend for the sale.

    Made myself a brand new, fresh, to-do list. The last couple of weeks, I kept carrying over my lists and things and it was getting messy so I am starting fresh. It is a very ambitious list, there is a lot that needs to get done but we shall see what happens. I am going to be hopeful but I am also realistic that it may not all get done and I will be okay with that.

    But first thing first, gotta see what I need to get done for work today.

    Happy Friday
    2022 is going to be my year, the year I find organization in my life and the year I focus on myself,

    Good Morning!

    I left the house too early for the office so went to the park and walked the path by the water. Crisp fresh air did me good!!
    Hope the work day goes by quickly so I can enjoy my 4 day weekend
    Will write out a to do list for the things I want to accomplish over my 4 days off.

    Have a wonderful day!

    May go for a walk today and may use my 20% off cpn at bed bath and beyond .I noticed a lot of my smaller towels are really starting to go (rags for the future).I will look at their clearance .

    good morning ladies!

    @Frugalbigmama sounds like that fresh crisp morning air you got was worth showing up early for. I feed off of that, always loved working my outside job in the Fall.

    @coupon girl You breathed a big sigh of relief I'm sure after finishing clearing out the drawers of the Vanity. Tasks like that are never on my radar until one day I snap because I cannot find an item, OR the drawers arfe so full they won't close properly. Good on you!
    @SassyAshley I think getting that new to-do list made will help plenty. Listing the items/jobs gives our brains a refresh! Good luck. Boo to having to hit multiple store due to less and less PM being available.

    I am hoping to NOT make any big grocery shops for 2 weeks....bwahahaha!! We really DO have more than enough to live on, just the fresh stuff can be grabbed.
    Surgery on October 26th, then I expect to out of commission ( physically ) , I just won't know how bad until after I guess?
    Until then I am looking at as many funny animal pics as I can to help me NOT to worry.
