Legal Robbery!

Happy Monday or as I like to call it............"I don't feel like going to work day", lol. I don't know why but every Monday I get up and act like going to work is something new. Today was even more hectic because my co-worker called out and I walked in to a load of problems and glitches. Now that my day is calming down and lunch time is nearing I figured it would be a good time to check in with my blogland peeps. I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was good. My baby girl came home from college for a visit this weekend and my grandson came over for a visit yesterday. Unfortunately he is in his biting phase and being a bit aggressive. He had us on our p's and q's all day long.
Saturday I was robbed! (okay let me clarify) - I went food shopping on Saturday and conducted a social experiment. I kept exact track of my spending because I wanted to know when I reached $100. Well here it is - $100 dollars in groceries in Philadelphia. My husband says that the jelly put it over the top and yes there are mostly meats in the cart but I have to tell you that my cart isn't even halfway full. Food prices are just high and the packaging is getting smaller and smaller. I do shop at the butcher shops also but a lot of times if you compare pound for pound prices the savings just are not there. So needless to say I felt victimized as I left the market, next time I am filing a police report to see if I can get anyone's attention, lol.


On another note I have a confession. This show is my newest shameful indulgence. As much as I would like to permanently swear off so-called reality shows (I mean whose reality is it when you have producers editing everything?) I am hooked on this series. It started one day at the salon while I was getting a pedicure and then escalated when I found all of the past seasons on the internet! If you have never seen it, I can't describe it any other way than "Messiness in its finest form".


Stay tuned for some layouts this weeks, the clouds are clearing up and the sun is shining so I should be able to get some good photos soon.

Happy Monday!!! I've been trying to explain to DH about the highway robbery at the grocery store for quite some time. He went to the store the other day and spent $30and had 5 things in his bag. I think he finally gets it. It's not just in Philly...they're robbing here in VA too LOL.

Hardcore Pawn...straight out of the hood LOL!!

Grocery shopping is crazy! I have been taking pictures of the sale items lately because the register at my store doesn't always tabulate the sale price as it should. Shame...
