Ivy has been eating on 11oz of freebie cat food, mixed the 3 brands in with what she already had so it wasn't all new every couple of days.

Today after my Pulmonary Dr appt I stopped at Meijer as they had sent me some coupons that I wanted to use before they expired. I scanned their app for any other coupons that I would want to use and found a $10 off 7lb bag of IAM cat food. Score paid $2.99 plus tax on 7lb of expensive cat food when mixed with what is left will last her 10 weeks or so.

Stopped at the UPS store to drop off a pre-paid box and needed a copy made before I turned the original in to the lawyer and asked if I paid her for the copy or did the machine take coins. She said I can make it for you, and gave it to me at no charge!

After stopping at the lawyers I ran into the county's free clinic with 2 medications we are no longer taking for them to pass along to someone that can use them.

All that was done in a big loop in the neighboring town.

Brought my lunch to work and just now getting to enjoy it, good thing I had that piece of peanut butter and jelly toast before I left the house this morning!

This week was super busy at work and now I can relax a little, do some bills, and then go home for the holidays. I think my friend with the cancer will be able to come over for a cookout dinner, too, which will be nice.

I want to complain a little bit here daughter lived in a house with four others. She and her boyfriend now have a new apartment but...all but her boyfriend left, and now she and her bf had to clean up the whole 5 bedroom house! The other three just left their stuff there that they didn't want and either went on vacation or went home, leaving all the mess and trash and even mattresses behind! She was so tired after travelling and working all summer, starting the new semester, and is now plain exhausted.

Be careful who you link yourself to when it comes to living situations! Everyone does not have the same sense of care and responsibility to what is and isn't theirs.
