I had to step on the scale twice this morning and I moved it to make sure it was level and not playing tricks on me.  I truly was not expecting to see a drop, its a small drop but it's a drop.  Work is kinda slow so I began my post at work before I forgot what I wanted to say.  My BAB this morning consisted of a very large pork chop and a whole avocado.  I had a granny smith apple for a snack later.  I wasn't really hungry but because I saw I had it, I ate it, besides it was good for me rather than a bag of chips or a candy bar, right?  Well, dinner last night was 3 eggs with chorizo and radishes with a small slice of Muenster cheese, all cooked in butter and coconut oil.

After work I went to Walgreen's, still looking for my Refreshers and this store did not have them.  I made the cashier feel somewhat guilty so she allowed me to use my two $2.00 off Loreal products.  So I drove to the closest grocery store and they had the Starbucks Frappuccinos on sale for $3.99 with the purchase of two of them.  That was fine with me because I had a coupon for $2 off of two packs, so I bought 4.  I had checked the expiration dates and some had June but I found the August date.  The cashier was staring at the coupons for what seemed like forever.  I guess she couldn't believe the good coupons or she was trying to determine if they were fake, who knows.  She did make a comment that the coupons expire tomorrow and I knew that, that why I was buying them today, duh!! I then went to another Walgreen's that on my way home because I knew they had the Refreshers, so I got 3 since they were free!!  I still ended up getting a register reward for another free one and another reward for $3.00 off my next purchase.  Oh, I forgot, the "guilty" cashier had told me that the toothpaste was on sale and I kinda shot her a look like what are you trying to tell me?  I asked her which toothpaste and it was the Optic White and that the sale ends tomorrow but I could still get my register rewards for them.  I told her I would be back tomorrow because I had coupons at home.  She told me that I had to go back to her tomorrow, LOL.  After my trip to the second Walgreen's, I went to my Wal*Mart (that I hate), and got the last two packs of the Frappuccinos since I only had one coupon left.  I also picked up some razors that I had $3 off of.  The cashier started giving me a hard time because basically, she didn't know how to read the coupon.  She explained to me that I could only use one coupon per purchase, in which she was correct but I had two coupons for two packages of razors.  I explained to her that there was a limit of 4 like coupons for each shopping trip but she insisted she was right.  I didn't want to continue arguing with her so I asked for the coupon back and to remove the item.  I paid for my other items and then she rang up the other package of razors separately, so I quickly paid and left.  I thought she was going to make me go get back in line but she didn't. I wish these cashiers would learn to read, I know they know how to read but they don't comprehend what they read. So I really should say, I wish they would learn to comprehend what they read.  As I sit here trying to type and venting my frustrations, I'm munching on my "crackers" and a Crappuccino, yes, you read that right.

I think for dinner I will do the eggs again. Not because I'm trying to play it safe, it's just that I have sooooo many eggs and they are on sale again.  Thanks to BAB, I'm usually not that hungry for dinner anyway, so I just eat the eggs so that I don't start binging at 9pm before I go to bed.  I think that was all the excitement I've had so far today.  Yesterday evening wasn't that great.  I was really tired and everything was going wrong.  I tried to plug in my new Scentsy warmer, and the bulb blew out within the first 30 seconds of me turning it on.  So I removed the bulb and I was going to replace it with the one I had in the living room, then I couldn't find the damn burnt bulb.  Later, I was going to throw out the trash so I pulled the bag of the bin and placed it on the floor so I could tie the top, then my foot felt wet.  I lifted the bag and saw this nasty brown liquid all over the floor and it was still dripping, yuck.  I couldn't think straight by this time so I grabbed some old newspaper and put it underneath the bag.  I finally got the bag outside and threw it out along with all the cat and dog crap.  After that ordeal, I went straight to my room and laid down.  My daughter and I were texting but she knew what time it was and left me alone.  Let's see what tonight holds in store for me.  I need to sort through my coupons and clip the toothpaste ones.  I'm getting off an hour early tomorrow because of my "training" yesterday and off to shop I will go!!
