Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I was foggy headed in the morning and then I had a wondrous phone call with a blog buddy, going over genealogy books for her siblings, and then I spent the rest of the day working on that--before I forgot what we discussed.
This morning, got up late again--9:20--it is so dismal outside. We haven't seen the sun for days and days!!! Worked some more on the genealogies--editing and re-doing pedigree charts.
I watched my Soap, which was rudely interrupted by the President, and some old lady from England. It's a fact, there is nothing on TV at 2:00 EST, so why don't they wait until then and not 1:30 to have a President press conference? ARGGH. It's Friday. There always is a cliff hanger on my Soap on Fridays.
At 2:00, I ran up to Walmart--to get my prescriptions, which I was supposed to pick up yesterday. I was paying $2.50 for my generic meds and $6.50 for my blood thinner. The prices today? $3.30 for the generics and $8.25 for the blood thinner. I haven't purchased any in 3 months and the pharmacist told me the prices rose January 1st--along with most of our health insurance. My health insurance tripled!!! Luckily, because I am low income, I did get a subsidy that pays for part of it, but it still doubled. ARGGH!!
I didn't need to get too much in the grocery department. I cashed in my coins from the coin jug at the CoinStar machine. They keep 10.9% for using the machine. I should have rolled them and taken them to the bank, or Meijer where they only take 5%.
I just looked at my Walmart receipt. I spent $22.00 on wild bird seed!! Some with peanuts and berries in, some with nuts and sunflower seeds for the Woodpeckers, Cardinals and Nut Hatches. A suet cake for the Woodpeckers. I spent $4.00 on cat food. I got myself a pencil sharpener--47 cents and a pouch of Tuna--$2.42. It's a fact that the animals around here eat better than I do. LOL
My daughter Karen, gave me half a ham for Christmas. That thing was big as a cow!!! I finally have all the ham sliced off and frozen in packages for sandwiches and today, I crock-potted the bone and the meat on it all day. I have a nice broth, I also have 2 potatoes, carrots, 2 onions and a small cabbage to add and crock-pot those tomorrow.
I did this a couple weeks ago with just the ham and it tasted so good. It seems I must have been craving ham for a long time because I've been eating on that hog since Christmas and I'm still not sick of it. :-)
Went to a funeral Tuesday and have another one on Monday. My cousin's husband died last night. "Death comes in Three's?" I wonder who will be next. YIKES!!!
Have a great weekend.
