Wow, I'm shocked that I awoke to same weight from yesterday seeing I had a carb filled day.  After my last binge at 4pm on my "crackers" and some hummus, I did not eat the rest of the evening.  However, I did go out last night and had 3 beers.  I ran into people I hadn't seen in years or even since high school and it felt weird.  A couple of guys that I ran into were previous coworkers and that was even stranger!!!  We only stayed a couple of hours and if I had stayed any longer, who knows who I would have ran into!  I got home and went actually fell asleep pretty quickly, guess I was still tired even though I had taken a 2 hour nap.

This morning I got up early to get my shopping done.  I went to the Wal*Mart closest to my home and got some razors, Mother's Day cards, and other items that I had coupons for, of course.  It was great seeing the total at $40 and then after coupons, I paid only $20.  That's how I like it.  I also returned a Blender bottle that I bought because I found them at Sam's for much less so I got me a refund. Man, everyone decided to checkout at the same time.  It was funny to see all the men scrambling to get flowers, cards and other items for either their wives or mothers or both.  I drove to the next Wal*Mart by my home and bought some of the same things since I have a gazillion coupons.  I had to argue with the cashier because an item rang up incorrectly and then she charged twice for an item.  She swore she was correct and she wasn't.  I just paid and went directly to the customer service desk where they corrected priced the item and refunded me the extra item I had been charged for.  Then I went to another Wal*Mart for some items.  I was happy that 2 out of the 3 Wal*Marts I visited this morning, had the Starbucks refreshers.  I have coupons for a free one.  I had to walk back into one of the stores because they only had 2 cans and I can only get one per transaction.  I gave my daughter one flavor so hopefully she'll report back with good news.  I then went to Costco to return the towels I had bought only to walk out spending more than what I was refunded, darn.  I bought my daughter some sushi they sell there.  All I wanted to buy while I was there was some Dawn because I had a coupon for it and some spinach.  Never happens that way.  I bought some Irish butter, my "crackers", the sushi, half & half, and miraculously I remembered the spinach after almost walking to the register.  I also filled up my tank for the week because tomorrow I plan on driving to the Westside of town to our local Sprouts store.  I hate that we only have one and it's on the other side of town.  They have a good special this week but I don't get their ad except online.  I need to keep buying the potato chips since I still have lots of coupons for them and I'll have plenty for the BBQ.  After I fueled up, I drove to my mother's to drop off about10 bags of Cheetos for my daughter, the sushi and the card for my mother.  I just realized that I forgot to take her a box of cereal that I had here for her.  After that trip I came straight home because I had the dairy products in my vehicle and it was getting warm out. I wanted to make a return at Big Lots and I should have stopped by the one by my mother's home, as I drove by, it was slow, oh well.   I arrived home at noon and put everything away and finally got around to making something for me to eat.  I couldn't decide what I wanted so I made an omelet with asparagus and spinach cooked in butter and olive oil.  I sprinkled some bacon bits on it because I had no ham or any "meat" to throw in there.  I finally get to cook those chicken thighs I have defrosting in the fridge and hopefully make some room in there.  Would you believe, I'm actually craving a salad?  I still have 2 heads of Romaine, tons of cucumber and radishes.  Since I had coupons, I also bought some Ken's salad dressing in 3 different flavors.  Two of the flavors have less that 1 gram of carbs.

Time to go clean, or at least think really hard about it.  I also need to write out my game plan for tomorrow's shopping trip!
