Busy Day

It was a beautiful day out today so the boys and dh got out to play.   I spent a lot of my day catching up on the dreaded laundry that only seems to multiply.  The minute you think you are done, there seems to be another load sitting there mocking me.

I took the time today to make about 60 homemade meatballs for the freezer, made a fresh batch of brownies, and made a roast, with carrots, mashed potatoes, rolls for dinner.   After all of that I must say I am worn out so, I will be heading to bed early tonight, if you consider 10 pm early.

My new goal now is to start really watching our money for grocery spending.   It is difficult sometimes to determine our budget with food and it seems like I live at the grocery store.  Today I did well, and spent $50 and managed to get a cart full.  I have been cutting coupons  and I really watch the local ads and there is some serious money to be saved if you just do a little research.  I will have to keep you updated on my endeavor.  It is hard with figuring out meals, especially when you are in a rut but I plan on sticking with our budget.
