I decided that I needed a treat! My new refrigerator has been empty since it was installed the first of the month. Except for Diet Pepsi, water, milk and cat food. I've been eating out of the cupboards. Soup and corn and green beans and pork and beans.
This morning, I got up late again, I think depression is trying to grab me again, but I won't allow it to set in, I checked my grocery money wallet, $30.00 left. I called the Rich People's store and put in an order at their MAGNIFICENT deli, for me to pick up at 2:15.
When I first got to the store, I headed back to their bakery and picked up a 9x4" yellow cake with butter creme frosting loaf cake. They make their own and they are delish. Then over to the deli and there was my order. A large Antipasto salad, a medium container of mac & tuna salad, a small container of Neptune salad and a small container of the best bologna sandwich spread--just like my Mother used to make with chopped up onion and dill pickles.
Total price? $27.00!!!!!!!!!!!
I am going to be eating well this weekend!!!!!!!!!!
It took me a year to do my family genealogy, both Mother and Father's side and made up the books for my kids. Over the years, we have bragged about how there has never been any cancer in our family. As I noted when I did the research, NO CANCER OF ANY KIND--EVER--all the way back.
What I find strange, and maybe I jinxed our family. my son now has cancer and I found out today, my cousin (on my mother's side) had surgery for prostate and bladder cancer.
When asked why, with the explanation that our family does not have the cancer gene, it was explained that most cancers now are environmentally caused. The food we eat, what we drink. So many preservatives and just the bad stuff in the air. It just "happens".
That ticks me off! Mark, my son, has always cooked and always used fresh grown vegetables and fresh caught fish or venison. My cousin, has run in many marathons, and even after retirement, has run every day--at least 10 miles. They are healthy people!!!
We are supposed to live until our late 80's or 90's, like our ancestor's and then die peacefully from our heart giving out, not from some poison getting inside and eating us alive!!
Well, at least no one in the family has ever had breast cancer.
Probably shouldn't have said that. I have a Mammogram next month! YIKES!!
