...in PRICE, that is!
I did my weekly shopping last night. At both of the discount supermarkets that I frequent, milk has been $2.60 a gallon for the 2%. (Which is what I buy.) No, I do not buy organic milk. My family goes through FOUR GALLONS A WEEK, PEOPLE! This is no joke. I don't even really drink much milk myself, but the other four drink a LOT. Soooo, my milk was down to $2.13 a gallon! That's pretty significant, considering I just bought milk a week ago! I spent $125.00 on groceries for the week, even though I bought extras of things like cheese and lunch meat. 2YO has been on a kick where she just wants cheese and lunch meat, yet she won't eat something in the form of a SANDWICH! She also likes bread, but won't eat them together. I know, that would just make things TOO EASY.
Basically, I'm seeing a little bit of relief in the grocery stores. I've seen gas around here for $1.69 a gallon. It actually makes me excited to fill up my tank, whenever I see the price drop even more.
With the temperature cooling the way it is, I think our cat is pretty much going to be a permanent fixture on my lap until spring. Apparently, Soccer rather enjoys being warm and it seems that we can hug him as tightly as we'd like, so long as we don't put him down. Lily has become more of a lap dog than she ever was before, and I'm assuming that it's for much the same reason. From what I can tell, Lily doesn't enjoy being cold or wet. Silly doggy wouldn't go outside with me the other night when it was raining. Seriously, I had to threaten her a little bit. Then, she ran back to the door, saw that I was still halfway across the yard, and hurried down the house and through the cat door as quickly as possible. She wouldn't allow a single drop of rain to fall on her if it didn't need to! BIG CHICKEN!!!
Now, this has nothing to do with anything else I've rambled about today...but does anyone else HATE the lady from the Glade commercials? Why is she so fake? Here's on they've been playing lately:
It's like they make the one housewife out to be some frivolous, fake person. Are her friends really that judgemental? Does someone really have to try THAT HARD to fit in? Since when is buying your candles at Target or (GASP) a supermarket such a bad thing?
And on that note, I'm going to end this. I need to go straighten up my house so I can pretend to be more organized than I really am.
