Of Course…

So, it totally makes sense that the two weeks where I (a) Need Food and (b) Want to Get Back to Blogging, our mailman didn’t deliver the circulars (while tantalizingly giving them to the girl downstairs. Meh!). The first week I thought it was a fluke; this week when they didn’t come on Thurs. I thought about leaving a note. But maybe they’d come Friday, as they often do? Nope. Even Saturday, as is still common? Nope. Totally denied for two weeks.

So, I swung by Market Basket to pick up some stuff we’d run out of in the meantime (milk/bread/eggs) and picked up a flier–the rest I had to go online to do, which is fine, and what I do for Hannafords every week anyways (since I don’t get those), but it was still wicked inconvenient. But, onwards and upwards!

With New England heating bills arriving ($500.00 this month! Yippee!), I’m hoping to stock up on tons of the baking bargains for Christmas, while also posting our measures on conserving oil (first up…reflector radiator shields!) I will not post about what a waste of money this current online Biology class is, and the incompetency of the instructor that is taking up hours of my time. Other than it’s HER FAULT I haven’t blogged since August, when her class started.

But money must be saved, so here’s my list for this week, and I’m glad to Hopefully Be Back for Good.
