Well it's the end of the week, but Friday does not hold the same reverence it once did. For all of the years that I worked, friday afternoon was sought after all week long. When in my 20's and early 30's it was all about Friday happy hour. Here it is Friday evening and I have no plans but to get caught up on watching my DVR programming. Friday may as well be Tuesday these days. I don't have a set schedule anymore and really nowhere that I have to be.

Unfortunately, I received an email today from advising that I was not selected for thier latest program for Hormel Complete kids meals. What a bummer, as I was looking forward to passing these on to my nieces.

I found a great deal at my local Ingles supermarket for $3.00 a package and used a couple of the $1.50 coupons for a great deal. I shared a few coupons with my sister-in-law and her mother. The sausage was delicious! In fact, I used some this evening to make spaghetti. 

I guess it's time to start watching my shows. More to come....
