Farewell My Friend

My precious twenty-year-old friend of 17.5 years is gone. Baby had been declining in the last week. I could tell it would not be long since she had signs of kidney failure. She, along with her sissy Snowy, got me through chemo. They both became very loving, and in the last 7 mos. since her sissy passed of the same disease, she had become my shadow. If I was at the computer, she was in my lap; if I was on the couch, she was either in my lap or across my neck. She slept with me every night, usually on the pillow above my head whereby in the morning when she thought I should be up, she would often lick my eyelids. She will be so greatly missed.

CVS Deals

Today I had ECBs expiring from CVS: $27 worth to be exact. I also used a $3.00 coupon and a $1.00 coupon. I paid $2.05 out of pocket for this:

  • Two Nexus styling products, which I never would have bought normally, but they had a $10 ECB attached to buying two
  • Two Herbal Essence Shampoos
  • One Head and Shoulders Shampoo

I earned $15 in ECBs, so that's not too bad. When possible, I "roll them over" into other products with ECBs.

Menu for week of February 9

Here is what I have planned for dinner this week:

Monday: Homemade turkey pepperoni pizza made with Pillsbury pizza crust
Tuesday: Ribeye steak and loaded baked mashed potatoes
Wednesday: Leftover spaghetti
Thursday: Chicken with pasta or rice

I know we are supposed to stay out of the middle of the grocery store where the packaged food is; however, as a working single mom who often gets home after 5 p.m., I often have to go for convenience. This week Publix has some great BUY 1 GET 1 FREE deals. I stocked up on the pouches of pasta or rice. I had a few coupons, so they were REALLY good deals.
