Ken left for Georgia yesterday. Vicki and I took him to the airport at 3:30 in the morning. This meant we were up at 2:30.
Not being a morning person, this was not a great start to the day. Vicki and I were home by 6:00 but we didn't come back and go back to bed. We stopped at Woodman's. We shopped for both her household and mine. By the time we were done, we'd saved $57 in coupons, $6.25 in Ibotta rebates, and $2 in Checkout 51 rebates.
We came home so she could unload. All the perishables got put away and some of the sorting out of what she wanted and what I wanted. My mother and sister stopped by so they got to see Vicki for a few minutes.
Once they left, we made a list for Sorgs and I called it in. Since it was Saturday Sorgs is always busy so we wanted to expedite our time there. We stopped at Urgent Care because Vicki has a sinus infection.
The rest of our morning we spent time going to Shopko, Target, Penera, and Walgreens. That finished our morning. We came home to eat lunch. I took a nap but she was bouncing all over getting things organized.
She brought home her laundry so she wouldn't have to pay to go to a laundromat. She did our laundry as well, so we folded and hung up several baskets of clothes. Once we were done with that, we went to the kitchen.
The two of us made lasagne, chicken tetrazzini, and diced chicken which we marinated with dressing. Once those were all done, we had lasagne for supper, did some more laundry, and then went back to the kitchen to make cranberry apple sauce. Vicki canned the results of this experiment so she had to stay up long enough to get the ten pints in and out of the water bath.
All of this got done yesterday with only about three hours of sleep. All in all, a good day but exhausting. I kicked Vicki to bed at about 10:30 and got to sleep short after 11:00. Today, I'm going to work on crocheting and watching movies or documentaries. I'm planning to enjoy my peace and quiet.
