So I’ve been in the middle of midterms and haven’t had the strength, or the will to go to the grocery store to do some proper shopping for this household. We were down to eating out 2 out of 3 meals and it was getting very old. We were running out of places to take out from because we were not going to go out to eat with a 18 month old in tow. So today when my last midterm was over I went straight to the grocery store and stocked up on $238 worth of groceries. Yes you read it right I wrote $238 for 2 grown ups and a toddler. I bought a lot of frozen meals that we could just drop in the pan or in a casserole and bake. My theme was anything easy and good breakfasts for the weekend. I was out of everything from milk and eggs to my favorite tea that just makes me happy when I drink it. I was also a little hungry when I went so I might have thrown in a few extras like small chocolate covered doughnuts. They will be nice later with a glass of milk while watching my shows.
Anyway, we started our car search yesterday and me and DH have different ideas of what we are looking for. I just want the Mazda 5 because it will fit our family even if we have 2 more kids and it is not a mini van. He liked the Mazda 3 because it was smaller and sportier. The only difference in MPG was about 4 gallons. It is a bit odd to be searching for a car that is only 2-4 years old. I’ve only bought 2 cars in my life and they were both older and CHEAP just to get me from point A to point B and now we are looking for a good and safe care for our family.
Oh I also finished the beret that I was knitting last night. I need to get a good pic of it to post. I’ve now started on some cool fingerless gloves from the same vogue magazine. I’m having fun with all the small projects and using what I already have in my yarn stash to make them. I need to figure out some cool project to use all of my worsted weight cotton yarn for. I have LOTS of it. It’s not really good for clothing. Maybe I will make a children’s blanket out of it or something. If you guys have any ideas I would love to hear them.
