A productive day!

March 22nd, 2009 at 10:28 pm

Thanks, everyone, for the warm welcome! I am feeling pretty happy with my Sunday, so far. My husband and I went for a walk around the neighborhood we hope to someday live in -- exercise for the body *and* nourishment for the soul. Walking around, looking at houses, and making big (and sometimes unrealistic) plans is one of my favorite things to do. Plus, I love that it's sunny out, and really starting to feel like spring. After that, we made the rounds to the stores and did our grocery shopping for the coming week -- and came in $19 under budget! Now if I can just keep to the meals I've planned for the week...

After lunch, I went into work for a few hours, and got quite a bit accomplished. I was on vacation last week, and I always feel it's easier to dive back in if I get some of the busy work (emails, planning, etc) taken care of before the first day back. On the way home from work, I stopped off to use our rewards discount at the Safeway gas station. We only use these rewards once a quarter, right before they expire, since the nearest Safeway gas station is a little bit out of the way. But a few times a year it's worth the extra drive for the savings. Since the current quarter ends on Saturday, we had to use them or lose them. So I filled up the tank for only $11.54. I feel like I'm living in a whole different decade!

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon!
