Yesterday turned into a very nice day just all to myself. DH decided to go over to woodworker friends place. They ended up taking a drive and then DH helped him a bit cutting up some of his firewood for the winter. He had an enjoyable day and I got a day of rest and relaxation. I got back into watching the most recent season on Heartland, that I had started a couple/few weeks ago. Then I took a nap. Then I got up and binge watched some more.
DH didn't even come home until around 6pm. I was just making a homemade pizza for dinner, so it was quick and easy to make, while he took a shower.
My mom is meeting with the realtor today, so I'm sure her home will get put on the market quickly. There is really nothing she needs to do to ready it for sale, that's for sure.
I still have today and tomorrow off work. Sunday we worked in the yard for a couple hours. Well, whatever I was doing totally pulled the muscles in the back of both of my legs. Apparently, I need to do more stretching and exercises.
I rarely do coupon shopping anymore. It's just too hard since I only make a trip into the city every 2 weeks. We have Walgreens store there, but I pretty much had worn myself out of the "deal" shopping there and RiteAid several years ago. They kept changing the programs and I'd work up deals and they'd be out of half of it, etc. But, I need to get some PrepH (TMI, haha) for DH. He only likes one kind of what they offer. It's so stupid. It's their hydro-cortisone cream. It's the exact same thing as any other tube of the stuff...only with their brand on it it's 3x as much. And over the past several years harder to find in stores. Last I found was at Walgreens, so I bought 2 and they lasted a year or more. He's out. I'm not heading back to city for 2 weeks. Let's find it online. Sure...if I want to pay $9 or $10 a tube!. I finally found it for $6 at RiteAid online. Plus it had a $2 off online coupon I could attach. If I ordered $35 I got free shipping, so I started searching around their website. I didn't realize I could get a lot of their same store deals online and earn rewards. It was kind of like shopping in the old days, LOL. I got some Colgate toothpaste. Priced $4.89 each, buy 2, get $4 off. I got a toothbrush on sale for $4, plus a $1 off coupon was available. His deodorant was $2.30 each, which is a good price. I ordered $36 worth of stuff and also earned $3 rewards back.
DH finally, after years and years, has talked with his older (by 7 years) brother. I honestly could never stand the guy. He was a terrible terrible parent (and his wife) to their 3 kids. The twins were born with varying degrees of fetal alcohol syndrome. They handed one of them over to the state for raising when he was 14. He moved far away 20 some years ago and would never keep in touch, so DH gave up. But, a few years before we moved here, he also moved back to this area they grew up in, so I guess it's inevitable they'd probably reconnect at some point. DH did try to call him a few times when their dad was dying and right after he died. He would never answer his phone. DH doesn't leave messages. Figures everyone has their phones in their pockets, they know they are getting a call, or they see the call missed notification. Of course he wouldn't know the number, but months ago he was also told by another sibling that DH had tried to call him a few times. His response "He wouldn't have the nerve". We have absolutely no idea what that could mean, but more than likely he was drunk, so who knows. DH can have whatever relationship he wants with him, I just hope I don't have to waste my time socializing with him or his wife.
I had bought a bag of salad with my shopping trip last Friday. We'd gotten out of eating salad when living in the shop. We already finished it up. I think later this afternoon I'm going to run into town to the little grocery store and get some more lettuce or a couple of the bagged salads. Might as well pick up some fried chicken from their deli. We haven't had that in awhile and their fried chicken is really good. Will make dinner super easy, too.
