so much for using up my stockpile

so much for using up my stockpile

You know how I posted here that I was going to take the pantry challenge and just buy the necessities in order to use up my stockpile?

Apparently I lied. Or else just forgot.

There is something about having a lot of food in the house that makes me feel secure. I’m sure there is some psychological issue here that I need to figure out.

I did some shopping over the weekend and I now have as much food in the house as I did at the beginning of January. I’m still totally within my budget (and we reduced it again for Feb) but I have a lot of food.

I think part of the issue is that, after a while, it takes a lot of brain power to be creative and use up the food that I have left. And right now I don’t have a lot of brain power. Going to the gym early in the mornings kinda zaps me. By 7pm I’m wasted.

So. We have a lot of food. I won’t shop any more for the rest of the month, except for milk and fruit and veg.

Speaking of food I need to get some more work done in the kitchen. I feel motivated for some reason.

Found on Facebook

I found an old friend yesterday on facebook. A friend from college - she was probably my best friend.

Somehow we lost touch. She did come to my wedding but moving overseas and all that kinda put an end to that era.

I found her last night on Facebook and asked her to be my friend. This morning I saw that she had added me and just now I had a chance to read her wall. I discovered that just last week she was released from the hospital after two weeks recovering from surgery to remove ovarian cancer.

Wow.

I was flabbergasted. I believe my mouth was hanging open. I’m merrily going about my life, worrying about things like how to coffee stains out of my shirt and one of my old friends is struggling for her life.

Kinda puts things in perspective.
