Monday morning

Sunday was a day of sleeping in (for a change) and just relaxing most of the day. I did make a run to Petsmart for dog food. I had a $5 off $25 coupon and I also got lucky that our brand of dog food was on sale, plus a free can of dog food to go with the dry dog food purchase. Got the huge bag of Purina One for $23.88.  Then I went shopping for a birthday present for my mom. It was so hard, I really had no idea what to get her this year! I ended up getting her a couple of paperback books to read and some Lindt chocolates. I think I'll also pick up some flowers.  Then the next weekend we have Mother's Day and my grandma's birthday.  She's even harder to buy for now that she lives in a care home.  But, I think I will get her a bouquet of flowers and some chocolates. 

Though I love watching my daughter play tennis I think we are all a bit ready for a normal schedule again. She said she felt strange leaving for school this morning without her tennis bag.  I made dinner last night and tonight's dinner will be quick and easy club sandwiches along with watermelon.  This week should be home cooked meals, other than our normal Thursday - where I get Dh is weekly cheeseburger and fries from his favorite place.  I want to get that fast food/take out category down again!


  1. I have a hard time buying for our (Hubby's) Grandma too. She's turning 94 this year, so there is not much she needs.But she still likes to receive gifts! I bet she'll get at least one pair of fluffy socks again:)

    1. My grandma turn's 94 too! It's impossible to buy her clothes, she's so picky. She's still well enough at times for my mom to take her to the casino, so my mom usually will give her some "gambling money" :)
