Went to grocery store this morning. Spent $18.34 Saved 45% Use another one of my 5 free bottles of coke coupons. I have one more left. I also will get $2.69 back for buying Aqua Fresh toothpaste and I had a $1 coupons so I made money buying it. Plus it has 3 free music downloads on the box.

Fixed oatmeal and potato salad for the week. Took a batch of chili to moms for supper. My grandmother is in the hospital with knee surgery and mom and dad are driving 120 miles every day and spending most of the day with her, so it was good that they didn't need to cook.

walked with mom for 50 min

Went to the library, cleaned the kitchen and the bedroom. When I was cleaning the bedroom I was dusting and picked up the phone and wiped it off with my dust rag. When I hung up the phone rang and it was the Police department. They said they recieved a 911 call from my house. I apologized and said I was just cleaning my phone. I have no idea how the cleaning rag could hit 911 in just the right combination. I guess it's nice that they checked back though.

Got a Dove shampoo sample from WalMart today.

Finished reading the library book The Book of the Dead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Mystery. Very good.

I still don't need glasses because between the two eyes I see 25/20
