Such is my Life
These have been very busy days.
I am so enjoying my break from school, but I am trying to cram a lot in this week.
Today I cleaned out my freezer. We have a very large upright freezer and it was a mess. Luckily we do not have to defrost it, but things had been put away in a sloppy fashion and I no longer really knew what type of inventory I had. Youngest and I spread a blanket on the basement floor and then started pulling things out and separating them into piles. When we finally put everything back in I was very pleased. I did however find out that we have plenty of pork products and enough chicken for a while, but no BEEF. My family loves beef and I have none. So I guess I will look for deals on various cuts of beef for a while. I have more convenience type foods than I usually have on hand, but because of some excellent coupons and deals I have stocked up on some of them. I will probably share some of those things with my boys for their apartments.
I also had a therapy appointment and my therapist was thrilled at my improvements during the last week. Suddenly my uncooperative left arm has decided that it is okay to do what I want it to. I can finally move it up past 90 degrees. Practically all the way up. It is pretty sore tonight, but I can live with a bit of pain while it is getting used to moving again.
This evening I have been busy getting things ready for oldest to take with him when he moves out on Friday. He will be moving to another city and sharing an apartment with a friend. It is so nice to have a stockpile that I can pull from to help him get started. I filled 4 boxes in no time with things like food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and room fresheners and will still fill a cooler from the freezer when we move him out.
I also did a bit of bargain shopping today. Walgreens has their Christmas things 75% off already and I stocked up on a few things for next year. I also bought a few gifts to put back, and snagged some free Hershey Kisses (6 bags) due to the sale and my coupons. I have found that it is possible to have free chocolate in my house at all times since I have been heavy into deals and coupons. Dangerous, huh?
Tomorrow I will try to check a few more things off of my "to do" list, but I plan on meeting two girls from my first girl group for lunch. I can't wait for that.
