Other then puddles, green grass, what else does the rain bring with it? More migraines !!! Dang, dang, triple dang it all to pieces. It took two rounds of medications but I finally got it down to a dull roar. There are actually people I have met who have never had a headache in their lifetime .... I really think that would be a wonderful thing, as I have been experiencing them since my late teens.
I wonder if migraines are genetic, as my Mother used to suffer terrible with migraines, all my siblings had nasty migraines in their 20's however seemed to grow out of them. Even my youngest son and my one niece in their 20's have had nasty migraines. Um I must be the "bad seed" in the family as I never got to grow out of them.
My "Crabby Cabbie" never got in until 3:00 am this morning, and was up again by 10:00 am.
Yesterday I called the Customer Service Number for Canada Post, only to speak to a representative who pretty much told me it was my problem, to put another stamp on it and send it again, after explaining their machine had damaged the envelope in the first place. I might add also the envelope fit through their tester to ensure it would fit through their machines before being posted. Needless to say I was infuriated with the lack of Customer Service, even though it was plainly their problem and at my cost of making yet a third trip, put the card in a new envelope, and purchase another stamp to repost it for the third time !!!!
Back down to the Wiarton Post Office I went again this day. The gals at the Wiarton Post Office are all awesome. The gal there today could not believe the "lack" of Customer Service I received when calling in about all of this. No wonder people don't want to use Canada Post to mail items when this is the kind of service they receive when they call in to their Customer Service Phone Number. *Sigh* ... I might add this is solely my opinion from this experience and that of no other person(s). Really over 2 weeks to mail a card off to our grandson !!!
I couldn't resist going into Foodland to pickup a couple of my favourite treats that I had found out were 50% off .....
While there they also had bananas on the Discount stand at 49 cents for a bunch. Guess I what I got to making this morning?
Let's see 1 muffin in Rob's lunch, 2 muffins packed to be delivered to Auntie Gladys and Uncle Basil, 2 muffins packed to be delivered to Auntie Pearlina, 1 muffin dropped off at Foodland for Ashley, 1 muffin gone to our neighbour and 2 eaten by "moi". Good thing I made a double batch now wasn't it?
Recipe Please? PRINTABLE RECIPE HERE (I so LOVE this new feature I figured out how to do, do you also?)
I still had 3 large bananas left over from the two bunches I had purchased (after eating two myself). What to do, what to do ....

Once the kitchen had been all cleaned up, as this all took me into the afternoon to get this all done, I managed to also get the bathroom all washed down, floor and all, making it all sparkly clean until the next time around.
Now I must post how
September 1-7 Spending:
Groceries: $76.92 ~ Oopsie, went over by $26.92, but wasn't planning on the Lamb Roast arriving.
Grocery Funds Remaining: $123.08
Dining Out: $29.50 ~ Man oh man those Hungry Bear Fish & Chips had been good.
Dining Out Funds Remaining: $20.50
Misc. Spending: $7.62 ~ Bandit's Hydrocortisone Cream & 2 cases of water $1.99
Misc. Funds Remaining: $42.38
Funds Remaining for the Month of September: $225.96
Oh yes, the $20.00 I had set aside for Post Crossing this month? There is still $10.00 and change remaining in that envelope, so I am still within budget there.
Overall I think we were pretty much on track if it weren't for the Lamb Roast, but will just have to cut back a little more this upcoming week. I think so far today I am into this weeks grocery budget for about $10.00, so that is going to leave me approximately $20.00 for the rest of the week. No worries, I can do it ! I am the gal who is used to living on a shoe string !!!
On that note I think that is exactly what I will do now, get everyone in, out and about before it gets too much darker and again starts raining, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
