Sunday, Day 199 - We dropped our 2 oldest off at summer camp. I love them more than anything. But, absence makes the heart grow fonder. A week of vacation was a lot of togetherness, we all needed a separation.
Monday, Day 200 - Hydrate! It was a heat wave this week. Wow, I cannot believe how hot it really was. My best defense was to keep a bottle of water with me and keep myself hydrated. It made all the difference.
Tuesday, Day 201 - Revisit my plan to have a salad every day. Since I am doing a weekly recap, I can say that I had a salad 3 out of the 5 days. Not too bad, but it could be better.
Wednesday, Day 202 - Stay inside. Again, the heat was unbearable. We stayed inside all day, keeping cool. Wednesday was the hottest day in Milwaukee since 1995!
Thursday, Day 203 - Clean my desk. I have been employed for 7 weeks and my desk was already a disaster. I took 30 minutes before I left yesterday and cleaned it. What a difference.
Friday, Day 204 - We have a nice sun room that we never use. This morning I woke up at 5:30, made myself some coffee and took the paper out to the sun room. I have not done that in years! I am going to make a real effort to that more often. It made me very happy.
I am also going to try to start trying to keep up with the frugal things I have done all week. I used to do that when I started this blog. So, here is my weekly list of frugal acts.
Sunday - Resisted the urge to eat dinner out after dropping the kids off 3 hours away from home.
Monday - Kept the curtains closed to keep the house cool during this very warm week.
Tuesday - Left overs for dinner. Need I say more. It was easy, cheap and the house stayed cool because I did not have to turn on the oven.
Wednesday - Shop the freezer. I am trying not to go to the grocery store for a lot of stuff. We have a lot of meat in the freezer. I found some pork stew meat, I put it in the crock pot, covered it with BBQ sauce and made pulled pork for sandwiches. It was delicious.
Thursday - My husband will love this one. I visited my friends at Yankee Candle and found a candle that I wanted. I did not buy it. I walked away without buying anything.
Friday - Washing the laundry in cold water today.
