    Good Morning! Happy Monday!

    Scrap guy came this morning to pick up the old fridge. Happy to have that out of the garage!

    Friday night went out for dinner with my bestie. Saturday morning was up early and decided it was a nice day for a drive for breakfast Went to casino for free breakfast (and brought home two meals to enjoy during the weekend- no cooking weekend for me ) Used free play. Won huge
    Came home to the dogs and had a pretty chill Saturday afternoon/evening. Sunday went out to Walmart early - found 3pk peppers for $2.48 (reg $4.98) they were on the clearance cart because the package was sticky. Deal for me! $1.48 cauliflower and a package of lean ground beef.

    I bought 4 broccoli on Thursday (PM at NF for 4000 pt deal) have a package of mushrooms, onions and the peppers and cauliflower. So those are our veggies for the next few days. Thinking tonight I will make a pasta bake with the broccoli for dinner. Will go to the freezer and pull some chicken. I think DS will really like it. (he is my pasta lover) (We love it from a restaurant we like out of town but it is so rich so I will tone it down a bit )
    Tomorrow- A roast beef with mashed potatoes and the veggies. Will text oldest DS to let him know to pop by to grab dinner in between his clients or on his way home.
    Wednesday- Stir-fry to use up the veggies.
    There- A bit of a dinner plan for a few days.

    Have the cash ready for our 1st property tax payment that is due Feb 20th so will go to the town today to pay it so it is done. Saving 2 cents since paying cash and it will round down haha!!

    Have a fantastic Monday!

    Good Afternoon Everyone,
    Was up early this morning and trying to get all of the things done.

    This week is going to be very busy for work so I needed to jump right on that. But I also needed to get house stuff done.

    I started my morning by cleaning up my emails and writing a To-Do list of everything I want to get done for work as today might be my only sit at my laptop knock out the things day this week. Every other day I have other things going on even on my work-from-home days.

    Then I decided after I completed each task for work, I would take 5 to 10 minutes of something around the house. I started my day by stripping my bed and putting my sheets in the washer, Mom's are on now. I have emptied the Dishwasher, took out the garbage and cleaned the bathroom on my lunch break. It is shocking how fast you can get something done when you tell yourself you only have 5 to 10 minutes.

    Dinner tonight is a mystery I thinking something on the simpler side as I have feel by the time dinner time rolls around I will be done but happy with everything I have been knocking out. I am getting stuff done for work and around the house.

    Happy Monday Everyone.

    @Frugalbigmama , I saw someone post in Instagram they got an email offer for redemption at RCSS a couple of weeks ago but the only offer was Redeem 300,000 points, get $30 back in points.

    Will be interesting to see what this offer is, although I assume I won't see it since none of those are my "home" store which make sense since I do not shop at any of those stores often. I have never been to Independent and the closest Loblaws is an hour away, we do have a Zehrs but honestly unless it is a member pricing offer, I price match at No Frills.

    I can see why they did not include No Frill since it is their "Discount Chain" (But, I mean really is there a Discount Chain anymore) but I feel like RCSS wasn't included because they Price Match.

    Exactly! They don't want us price matching to make it a better deal!

    Good Morning! The sun is shining!

    I forgot to mention that I took the pup for a walk at the beach on Sunday afternoon. There was only snow/ice at the shore so the sand was dry and soft and it felt like a summer beach day. It is such a good workout walking on the sand and the pup was tired out after. Finally!!

    Took out more BLSL chicken this morning for tonight's dinner. Oldest DS took the chicken I had out yesterday to use for his dinner (we didn't end up cooking last night and just ate simple/leftovers) So I will make sure to make the baked chicken and broccoli pasta dish today Will get it all ready early afternoon so it is ready to pop in the oven just before we want to eat.

    I am feeling a little overwhelmed workwise but sometimes those are my best days Just makes me buckle down and get it all done
    At least I have a massage to look forward to this afternoon

    Have a fantastic day!

    Itís been a few days here.

    Thursday at 3am woke up to a wonderful kidney stone (first and only was back in 2017). Went to life labs for urine to make sure it wasnít a kidney infection etcÖ. Then a CT scan Saturday morning. Thankfully weíre literally right across the street from the hospital and thatís where the CT scan was.

    On the same days as the scan my dad ended up in the emergency department and after 7ish hours was diagnosed with shingles. Luckily it was caught early and he actually started the blisters in in the ER.

    Then woke up to water under my kitchen sink. Weeeeeeeeeee! Are we having fun yet? It could always be worse so I canít really complain. Itís just the faucet leaking so most likely a cartridge failure. Easy fix but still a pain.

    Now waiting for my dr to call so I can get a re referral to my urologist so she can schedule the surgical removal of them. I was given the option a few years back but since I had no issues, no new stones formed I felt I was safe. Stupid me! Lesson learned. DONíT PROCRASTINATE!

    I did manage a trip to Safeway yesterday and grabbed my soy curls(approx 8 meals worth or a bit more) and some other things. Used $20 in points so it was $5.05 OOP.

    Huge Costco stock up but only spent $278 so not bad considering all the things we were out of and now good for a while.

    Hope everyone has a great day ahead.

    After watching my mother suffer that nightmare, I got my ShingRex shot(s). Hopefully, they will successfully prevent any outbreak.

    How are they removing them, with ultrasound? Sorry to hear how painful they are.

    @HermanH they basically go I with a camera and basket and collect them all kinda like a creepy Easter egg hunt ( gotta laugh so I donít freak out). Otherwise blasting with the shockwave method they just make smaller stones that still need to pass and they canít guarantee they can get some of the smaller ones so surgery is a definite way to ensure I get a total spring clean!

    When I hit 50 Iíll definitely be getting the vaccine for shingles. My dad unfortunately didnít and thought heíd be fine. Now he has to wait a year to get it. My mom will get hers now.
    @coupon girl OUCH! The face ,especially near the eyes is awful and can cause blindness. Thank goodness youíre ok.

    I hope your granddaughter finds relief after her tonsils are removed. Poor kiddo
