Back on the job, so I can make money to spend money

Today was my first day back to work. I had only about 1/2 hour to myself this morning to actually do any work. Meetings. Then, this afternoon, it was so effing noisy, I couldn’t concentrate, thus was getting extremely irritable, and when my computer decided to take its own sweet damn time, I slammed my fist on the keyboard. I ended up having to go to the cafeteria to finish my work. The cafeteria was quieter than my office.  (And the conversations in the cafeteria were more work related than in the office.)

And, since I didn’t go to the grocery store yesterday, I really needed to do so today, since I forgot to pick up my happy pills, which… well, just see paragraph 1. I ended up buying nearly $100 in groceries, not including the happy pills, which cost nearly $100 themselves. But a lot of the stuff I needed was on sale, so I went ahead & bought it. Non-edible things like shampoo, skin lotion, hairbrush, yadda, yadda. Oh, and edible things like the diet (100 calorie pack) Cheetos. And diet ice cream bars. Yes, I needed them, too.

Oh, and red wine, too. Remember the $200 trip to Target? (You may not because I wrote about it at my other blog.)  One of the items I bought was a set of 4 balloon style wine glasses (for the grand total of $8). Since I finally washed & put them away, I thought tonight would be a good time for a test run. So far so good. (How many misspellings have I made so far?)

So now I’m just going to chill and watch a few hours of “Fashion Day” on QVC. I’m not sure if I’ll buy anything, but I might be able to get an idea of what I might possibly need this fall—once the weather decides to actually act like fall and not be over 90 degrees!

After doing very well abstaining from tv shopping—I didn’t even buy one thing during QVC’s Creed Silver Strike Day, which was Oct 2, when I was home recovering from surgery—I did end up buying a few things over the weekend. But a few of them are Christmas presents, and a few of them are items I’d been thinking about buying. I actually did restrain myself. But I’m sure it’s not going to feel like that once the credit card bill comes. Especially in light of tonight’s Giant episode.
