Been a little while

May 8th, 2010 at 09:10 am

It's been a little while since I posted here. Been somewhat busy and not motivated. I have eaten out a LOT in the past 2 weeks. No more! Time to be accountable. I have also spent a bit of money on shoes and clothes, all of which I am returning and getting what I really need instead - a pair of good rain boots. Any ideas?

This morning I got up real early and went to the park with my dog. We were there for about 2 hours. Came back, had some breakfast, and now doggie is snoring by my feet and I am working on some of the stuff that I need to take care of (not right at this moment of course because I am writing here Stick Out Tongue )

Between today and tomorrow, I want to plan my meals and cook for the rest of the week. So the things to do are:

[X] Plan meals
[X] Grocery shop
[X] Cook (freeze if needed etc)
[ ] Sew buttons on clothing items
[X] Finish 1 chapter of the book I am studying
[/] Start on the new book
[/] Look around for new job opportunities
[1 ] Apply to new job opportunities (applied to 1 - better than nothing)
[ ] Run

Well so much for that

I got ambitious, and wanted to make a healthy dish. I bought Quinoa thinking it will be delicious (I had never tasted it before), and made a lot of it, with all different veggies (organic) and ingredients. It's awful! And I have a huge pot of it sitting on my fridge, which will be tossed out. Yuck. There goes money down the drain. I think I learned a lesson here : only make a bulk of something that you absolutely LOVE.

has turned out to be very spendy in terms of grocery and meds. However, I don't anticipate any grocery expenses until April, which is only 2 days away anyway. Some of the grocery should also hold until the 2nd week of April, so that's a little consolation. 2nd bout of flue hasn't helped in keeping my medicine expenses any lower. None of the cold medicine seem to work anyway. I guess I will just have to suffer through it. Today has been a very slow day - not as productive as I would have liked it to be. There is still a few hours remaining before turning in, so lets see if I can salvage some of the day. Cheers~!
