After months of not really couponing very much (and not really grocery shopping much, my stockpile is that good, people), I casually scanned through the circulars this past Saturday and saw that the grocery store one town north of us (well, really it's 3 towns, but the other two are so small I don't even think they have post offices) was having a KILLER sale on chicken. With no limit.
My little heart went pitter-pat.
Well, when I say there was no limit what I really mean is "it was a one day only sale, but there was no limit on how many I could buy as long as the store had 'em". And the sale was today.
And I worked last night.
And I didn't really nap the way I should have yesterday, cuz I was more interested in cleaning the house and reading blogs.
And today is preschool day, meaning I have to have Little Sprout there at 12:30, and pick her up at 3.
And tonight is Uncle Wolfie night.
And I planned to do a whole chicken in the rotisserie. With herbed rice. Not something Big Sprout is up to doing yet (note to self: teach your child to cook, woman!)
And I'm supposed to be at a meeting at 7:30pm.
And that meeting will go right up until I have to head off for work.
Which will take me through (still awake) until tomorrow.
And then I have shopping and errands to run.
And I know I probably won't go to bed until between 9 and 10pm on Friday.
That's a long time.
So, pretty much, what I have set up here is a day that (though it doesn't look all that busy, really) is scheduled just perfectly to keep me from sleeping at all today. I mean, I could nap for an hour here, or an hour there, but once I'm asleep the likelihood that I will wake in time to start the next task is pretty slim.
So now I'm wondering if I should skip meeting. Or try to give Big Sprout a crash course on finishing a meal. Or.... something.
Cuz I'm tired, people. I'm really tired.
On the Bright Side... now I have motivation to NOT do this again any time soon! ;-D
