Today is day 29 of the July Food Stamp Challenge, and I am taking it easy today. Not only was I zonked last night from working two days in a row, but I think I got a cat hair in my eye that caused the right side of my face to swell up both uncomfortably and unattractively. I took some Benadryl, and my only plans for today include staying home and not leaving the house.
My husband, hearing we had wiggle room in our food stamp budget has started buying restaurant burritos, six packs of nice local beer, ice cream sandwiches and the like. We’ll still be under budget, but without the wiggle room I had anticipated.
I think this is the perfect opportunity to lie in a darkened room and start watching the True Blood DVD’s that I just picked up at the library.
I just have to keep the cats off of me.
