bundled up, walkabout, snow

morning

Almost 9am and all I've done is eat breakfast and read email/LJ.

I did open the new mail that's come in since I got the bills to this state.

This morning's mini-list:
  • sort the laundry and start it
  • verify the numbers on the direct pays
  • grocery shopping
  • pick up dry cleaning
  • Wal-mart
  • shower & dress for work; make dinner; pack dinner
At some point I need to get the records done for Rookettes. If I can't work it in during the day, I'll be staying up late tonight.

grocery shopping

I don't plan around sales and coupons, but I do go through my under-50¢s when they're tripling coupons. So I saved $50 out of a $200 grocery bill on coupons alone, and then another $25 Kroger Plus "savings."

The grocery shopping trip took at least 50% longer than it should have, with the combination of wanting to take advantage of the triple coupons, and they're moving everything around in the blinking store. This is the woman who has a grocery list in her PDA, with titles for each of the aisles, in order. Grr. Once they completely finish moving everything around, I'll relabel my shopping list and my coupons to match.

Now to get the stuff ready for Rookettes. I just figured out that I can pull the money from the bank in the morning, and sit out of one game of no-tap bowling to count out the envelopes. Which some time pressure off. All I need to do is go by Prez's on my way home from work and get her to counter-sign the check for the withdrawal. I can work on Rookettes and finish up after work if necessary.

Well, that and move clothes through the machines.

journalistic license

Does anyone else see anything disturbing about this headline/subheads combination?

US put Iraqi looters on notice
2 mass graves may hold up to 15,000 bodies
FAMILIES DIG WITH HANDS

No, they're not dumping looters in mass graves. But yes, residents of the areas where the graves were found are using their hands in the final stages of uncovering the bodies.

I thought about linking to the article, but the Herald Leader chose to break up the articles by the differing subject matter on their web site.
