I though my campaign of finishing off odds and ends of stuff would mean my supermarket bill would be less. I was wrong. Even subtracting the Easter Eggs my bill was actually higher but there was cat food on sale and so I stocked up...now they are in finishing off mode. However the finishing off is going well. I have finished off some old bottles of wine...that was a good idea! The shampoo finishing is finished...back to my $2 a bottle stash again...thank goodness. I really didn't like the other shampoos. Not that they didn't do the same job as any other but I didn't like the smell. Morning is bad enough without tropical fruits or even worse...coconut and avocado.....blech.
The conditionor battle is almost over but the toothpaste one rages on. I don't like spearmint flavoured things so I am considering brusingmy teeth 4 times a day over the week of holiday to use it all up. That should be pretty effective in curbing the desire to eat chocolate...toothpaste and choc aren't a good combo. But not as bad as toothpaste and orange juice.
Various face creams are getting a thrashing. Night cream left overs make excellent hand cream. I ma thinking tha tI might even keep that up to slow down the creeping effects of 'old lady hands'. If it is supposed to keep your face wrinkle free and youthfully fresh it shoudl do the same for your hands too. I have used up 3 almost finished jars and have unearthed a few more. If I keep this up my shelves might even have gaps on them.
I am going on a reading binge. I have just listened to the first 3 Amelia Peabody novels by Elizabeth Peters and I am now going to have to read all the others. I ust find my Egyptian themed lying around trousres to wear while I read! I have the 2 books in the series that were last published to read as well so that might keep my week full. Not that I don't have a billion things to do...but I might just read instead. I have done my marking...sooooooooooooo nice to have it finished and no hanging over my head. Go planning to do but I am leaving that till later. from experience I know that planning too early is a total waste. It gives me time to think up a whole new set of stuff and partially forget what I had originally planned and so I end up with too much and not enough time. Since school is pretty much too much to do and not enought time I don't need to add to the problem myself.
Now that I have started thinking about those books I have to go and read. The power of suggestion is strong in this one Obiwan. ( or words to that effect.)
