Its late, I’m ridiculously tired paired with being in a bit of a food coma from eating way too much at dinner (I’ll get to that) and I’m just realizing this is not going to be a good week for food for me at all. We went out to eat this evening for Mattie’s dad’s birthday dinner, and on Thursday we’ll be going out again, this time with his mom for Mother’s Day. I don’t know where we’re going Thursday, but tonight I went way overboard and just in general fucked up on food all day long. As it is, I’m having one of those days where I feel like food (lots of food) is the answer to everything. I had a good breakfast, but then followed it with junk, followed by fruit (partially dressed as junk) followed by a huge dinner that started with appetizers and ended with a huge burger and a side salad. Its been hours since we ate, and honestly all I can think about is eating something else, even though I’m pretty sure I’ll be sick if I do. Its just one of those days. :(

This week’s official weigh and measure was pretty much a flop. I used all my weeklies on Friday & Saturday, so the scale was way up today compared to only a few days ago. Not too pleased with that, but it is what it is. I did it, I get to live with it, right? Still, there was a loss, so its not all bad. I’m pretty sure the scale will be down quite a bit in the morning though, or at least by Tuesday morning.
I had planned on spending some time in my craft room today but I didn’t. The most productive thing I did all day today was brush the dogs, which oddly enough Sashi is the one who is shedding the most. Usually its Lucy who is losing hair all over the place, not Sash.
I also tried to win a pattern I really wanted on eBay, but I got way outbid at the last second. The same pattern is available from the manufacture for $3.99 though right now, so may just order from there, depending on whether or not the site will work- so far I can’t go through the checkout process at all without an error. Grrr. Probably better this way though because I’m technically broke.

I know this is Ten Things Tuesday but I’ve got some sort of something going on, haven’t been sleeping well, and feel like crap. I’m also mad because its after 8pm as I type this and our produce delivery still hasn’t showed up.I know they hired a new delivery person, but I also know they get a list of houses and what each house gets each week, so its hard to fuck up. Yet here it is, after 8pm, and nothing has been delivered, and I need to know if I need to go to the store and buy veggies for this week or what.
I’m hoping nothing bad happened to them, but my mind is running the gamut- a car accident, our box was miss-delivered to the wrong house, or maybe there was a strawberry-crazed thief out there who stole our boxes. Ugh. So many possibilities.

I had an unexpected $30 come my way today, so I made a quick trip to the Walmart and later to Winco. Why Walmart? Because they carry the popcorn Mattie likes, and its really the only reason I ever go there anymore. I don’t care for Walmart, but I really only end up going in there about every 6 weeks. I also grabbed a few other things since I was there. Winco I love now that I’ve really started shopping there, though once upon a time I had the heebie-jeebies about Winco and wouldn’t shop there. Then I realized that they are actually cheaper on almost everything, and that means a few extra small grocery items in my cart each week! To me, that’s a damn good reason to shop there! Even if that extra is just a few apples, it feels good to know I can afford them.
Anyway, to the title of this post- Every time I go to the store for one item, I come out with 7. I cannot just go in and buy the one thing I need. If I have more money, I will spent it on groceries. This trip was filled with random things we do not actually need, but like i said, it was an unexpected extra $30, and I wanted to get a few fun things with it. I literally made one trip to buy popcorn, and one trip to buy ice cream, and I got all of this stuff instead. I’m going to file this under my Grocery Haul Mondays (among other places), even though its Thursday. Here’s my damages.
