    I left my purse at home today. Since I'm limiting my driving trips, I wasn't able to go to Walmart after work today and I'm not going out again tonight. Grocery shopping will have to wait till tomorrow.

    Almost forgot to flush the toilet at the library.  Bet they wouldn't appreciate my attempt to conserve water....

    Cutting down on waste has one drawback.  The garbage can takes longer to fill and starts to stink!

  • Lori Paddock 4/22/2017 11:36 PM
    Living alone is good when you're saving water by not flushing the toilet regularly.  LOL
