It Pays

Sitting on the couch enjoying my cup of coffee vacillating between going to pick up some groceries. And cat food. Or could I stretch the can we had.

Around 9:30 I finally decided to go. In part because T goes back to school Thursday and I had nothing for his lunch. Sandwich meat. Bread. Some cat litter. My list was not long. I was going to do another shop on payday.

Got to work and I wandered the produce section. Decided on lettuce, a Ceasars salad kit and grapes for T. Meat had a nice special on strip loin steaks so I bought a family pack of 3. Guess what supper was.

I ran into one of my co-workers and we were chatting when she mentioned 10% Tuesday. Customer Appreciation Day. So lost was I that I asked if it was Tuesday 🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ She quickly set me on the right path. It was Wednesday but we can still shop and get our 10%. Which meant that I could get a little more. Given I also would be able to combine my 10% employee discount.

Saved $83 all said and done. 36% of my bill. Plus earned enough points that I will have $20 to use next time off groceries if I want.

Went to get the cat food. They did not have a case. They did not have large cans of their food. I had to resort to purchasing 4 small cans which will last me one day for the same amount as I would pay for 3 large cans that would feed them 2.5-3 days. Thomas while playing more is eating less go figure.

I may have grumbled. Just a bit. I should have sucked it up and said nothing but it is an inconvenience. Yes big girl pouting alert. ☹️☹️☹️🤣🤣🤣🤣

When I arrived home I made T rise and assist me. After he was done I sent him off and gave him until 12 to watch YouTube. Then homework. And lunch.

I bought cinnamon buns for Thursday morning breakfast forgetting T had classes at 8. And I promised bacon. Have to say that is one aspect of being at home all the time I like, is making T a good breakfast before school.

Bop Goes The Cat

Sunday evening T was home before 10. Not by much by I was still awake. That though is a story for another day.

T was chattering away with me giving the cats all the loving. Apparently they were more missed than I was. LOL LOL Loki is loving the attention until he no longer is and squirms free. Lucky is watching him with distrust. She loves to cuddle with me but does not like to be picked up and held unless on her terms. Like you have just gotten out of the shower and she wants loving.

He turns to Thomas waiting patiently for his turn at his feet. Picks him up and comments on his weight.

Not once. But a few times calling Thomas chunky and what was I feeding to him. Same as always but he likes food. Still plays with Loki and balls. Runs around so am not terribly worried.

I guess though that Thomas took offense to the discussion of his fat. As I watched he reached up and…..bop! He bopped T on the nose. I howled. Cried I was laughing so hard. T took great offense. Put Thomas on the ground. Affronted he informed that that was not funny. I begged to differ as I laughed my butt off.

I told K yesterday more than once because…..bop!
