I usually spend Sunday morning getting caught up on all of your posts - this usually takes 2-3 hours. Today it didn't. Know why? Because so many of you have been feeling "under the weather" and haven't been posting!! There are some extreme germs making the rounds so build up your immune systems everyone!
Because - I MISS YOU!!
Everyone that IS posting seems to be really glad to see the back end of September, me included. September is always tough around here and then there's Christmas just around the corner! Glad I've been saving for Christmas/birthdays all year long - can't believe how great that's been to be able to pay for gifts out of my gift budget line instead of withdrawing from long term savings.
I have updated my financial goals in my sidebar (way down) though I didn't do too well in choosing the bar colours. Oh well, that's a goal for October! Yesterday I did the grocery rounds and overspent a wee bit. But that's ok because the quinoa I spent $17 on will last a LONG time and the turkey I bought at .88/lb is for next weekend - yes Canadian Thanksgiving is next weekend already!! And I'm prepared!
Today it's only 4c outside so I am wrapped up in afghans so I don't have to turn on the furnace. But the great news is that I won!! the $35.00 Novica gift certificate that Judy was giving away!! Thanks Judy!! I'll post a pic of my gift when I receive it from Novica!! It's definitely going to be something to keep me warm and lift my spirits:)
So my friends, please get well soon! I am doing quite a bit better - the oil of oregano seems to be doing its thing. Yesterday I woke up congested but today NO CONGESTION AT ALL!!
