Since it's going to rain tomorrow, I'm about to head out and do Saturday's yard work today. It's all good. I love being out there. It feeds my soul. Good for the body, too! I'd much rather push a mower that get on the treadmill! My favorite thing is to sip something cold and lemon-y on the porch afterward and look over a job well done. Ahhh.
Good news! We finally got the Sweet Girl scheduled in with a surgeon who is willing to take a look at her. Bad news: he can't see her until June 30th. So, we are learning a lesson on enduring to the 'end'. (Har, har.) All kidding aside, she's in pain, and it's hard on her; but we are hopeful that we'll get some help for our girl...finally. We have some fears about insurance and future costs, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
Mr. H is doing better, too. Thanks be.
I still have to tally up totals, but my first week couponing was a qualified success. I know I reduced our grocery bill by at least 50 bucks, and I didn't use any coupons on that big trip. Just having the door-buster sales all on one sheet to look at, and to take advantage of, was a huge help. I stocked up on meat with all the Father's Day sales -- and I think I spent too much there. I'm not going to beat myself up for that, though. Mr. H's contract could end at any time, and I'm happy knowing we have something stocked away, and that I got it at REALLY good prices. I'll probably tweak my system here and there, but like Betsy commented, I'm enjoying the challenge, and I'm taking good care of my little family.
Getting ready for Father's Day -- we're going to spoil our Daddy-man. Looking forward to the weekend...
...have a great one! ♥
