Under the weather

November 12th, 2014 at 07:18 pm

I am really not feeling well today. My throat has been sore for a couple of days now...and the nose stuff is starting. I grabbed dinner last night at a little restaurant because my husband was meeting a friend for dinner, and I really didn't feel like cooking. Well....it made me sick. Soooo sick. So that on top of already not feeling well has really knocked me down. Going home and laying down. This is turning out to not be a very productive week.

Side note...I turned the heater on for the first time yesterday. We got down to 29 last night and its 38 degrees right now in the middle of the afternoon. I have it set on 66 degrees. I don't know if I can go lower. What do you keep your heater at?

May have to turn the heater on

Today it is going to be 78 degrees where I live. Tomorrow is a whole other story. The high is 53. A 25 degree drop in one day is kind of brutal. Frown It continues to drop from there, landing in the mid forties for the high. I think we will have to turn on the heater.

I spent money this weekend. Unplanned money. But, I really needed a coat and they were half off at Old Navy. So I bought a wool pea coat for $27.00 + tax. I think that is pretty good! And it will last me a while.

So here comes winter.

Pretty proud of myself

Yesterday I really wanted to stop at the store on my way home. Had this great idea to make garlic bread to go with our dinner. Then I thought of all these other things that could go with dinner. Then I thought....NO. Why would I do that? I have plenty of groceries at home. So I didn't stop. I went home. Completed my list of to-dos. Did yoga. And made dinner, including some homemade beer bread. Pretty proud of myself for not stopping and sticking with my plans.

Oh...and I worked on turning off the lights and using less water overall. Smile I especially want to take advantage of not having to run the heater or the A/C right now.

Still moving in the right direction

I'm trying really hard to stay focused. Things are moving in the right direction, but slowly. I will update my sidebar today.

I am working to do small things at home to lower our utility bills. Reducing the amount of water in my bath. Shortening showers. Being sure to turn off lights as I leave a room. These are easy things that I can do that should make a little bit of a difference. Probably not TONS....but every little bit counts.

I am trying to stay very structured and planned. I am hoping that if I stay to a schedule and really focus on my budget, maybe I can change my habits. This is a busy week for me. I have a lot planned, so I am hoping for good things.
