I would like to make a concerted effort this year to curb food wastage. From wasted milk to lemons going bad because we have neglected to keep an eye on things. Most of the time that's all it is -- not paying attention. And it makes me mad to see wasted food go into the garbage or down the sink.
It has been a very different being here. We have watched more TV than we are used to. I cannot believe the types of shows out there. All the reality stuff literally makes me sick. Part of me find the displays of humanity just incredible. Maybe that's what people can relate to now or what sells.
I'll be flying back home in a few days. It hasn't felt like I've been here very long at all. I'll know just how therapeutic this break has been once I get back to work. I have had to think of work while I was here as I received a message from my associate (didn't appreciate it). He was very surprised that I was calling him back from BC. Other than that, they have left me alone. Or I think they have as I have not checked my messages since then... :)
D and I have been very pleased with how much lower our grocery bill has been this year vs. last year. Our better shopping habits has made a significant difference -- something we didn't think was possible last year. We actually have money left over! Also, there isn't anything big that needs to be purchased for this location anymore. That's a good thing.
