Yes, that was me today! I walked and then came home and let myself rest for just a little bit and cool off before heading to the grocery store. I spent WAY too much there, but have a lot of good food in the house. I came home and put that away and then ate lunch. I relaxed a little bit and then headed back out. I went to Family Dollar to get my first of the month essentials and a few goodies. I got another one of the $5 candles. I still have some of my old one left but I wanted to get a new one so I'd have it ready to go! It smells so good!
I left Family Dollar and was going to get gas at a local station that is nearby. They were closed but the pumps are usually on so you can use them after hours. The pump I pulled up to said it was off, so I just headed out and went somewhere else to get gas. I did that and headed towards home. My car was starting to overheat a bit when I had to sit at stop lights, but it wasn't too bad ... well... until... I get back to the neighborhood and had to wait for a train to go by before I could go into the neighborhood. My car started to overheat and even went in the red. I couldn't move because of the train in front of me and the car behind me was so close I didn't have room to back up. I turned my heater on full blast. I finally was able to move and it went down some, but as I was trying to park it, it started again. I turned it off and got out of there! LOL!
I washed a huge load of clothes and I need to go get those out and put them away. I also washed a sink full of dishes. I bought some pork tenderloins at the store. I used to make my own frozen dinners with a piece of pork, some peas, and some potatoes. I made eight of those tonight. I have nice divided dishes with lids that are perfect for this. I grilled the pork chops two or three at a time in my George Foreman grill and then put them in with some peas and some potatoes. I used canned peas and I got a couple of packs of those already made potatoes you see in the meat case. It makes a tasty little meal and it's a lot better than regular frozen dinners.
I also got some ground beef and I will make it into patties tomorrow. I will probably freeze those until I'm ready to make them. I got sandwich meat (ham) but I forgot to get sliced cheese. D'oh! I like my ham sammich with some cheese. I'll get some tomorrow either when I walk, or I'll drive down there afterward and get some. I got several coupons from the store fro what I purchased, so I should be able to pick up the cheese for free.
I even sat down tonight and got three pen pal letters done! I still have about seven to go, but I got those done and I'll mail them tomorrow. I was glad to have all that done. Now, I'm going to get off of here and relax until bedtime. I want to play some Pocket Camp. The Halloween event is such fun. I love Halloween and I MUST have all the Halloween goodies! LOL!
