I was sick this week and then had to work on Saturday (and will be working every Saturday going forward) so I had to do my shopping today. I ended up going to Shaw's and Whole Foods- I was planning on going to Dave's Marketplace (a local RI grocery store chain) but my back was killing me so I will go there tomorrow to get our produce for the week.

I spent a lot today. I did it because I feel like I haven't been grocery shopping in forever and I felt like our fridge was empty and our pantry was getting low. Plus, because I will be working on Saturdays I wanted to get my husband some quick things he could make for himself and the the kids when I am gone- if I don't provide these things then he will not think twice about getting fast food or ordering take out. I guess the extra I am spending now will end up saving money in the long run.

Tomorrow I plan on running to our local grocery store chain to pick up some produce- they have great prices and the quality of the produce is awesome. My son will be at school and my four year old is at my in-laws so it will be just my two year old and I.

Tomorrow I also plan on having a freezer cooking session- I plan on making a big batch of chili, eggplant "meat" balls and possibly a batch of waffles. We shall see if this happens as my back has been killing me lately- I am thinking it is from me going back to work and sitting at a computer for hours each day. Normally I am always up and about doing things so I guess my body needs to adjust; hopefully it is soon because sleeping with a heating pad every night is no fun.
