Well...................afterwards I ran a few errands. Thanks to ctonabudget.blogspot.com I bought 6 Mccormick sauces plus a 2016 small planner. Then on to Aldi and bought a pound of organic ground beef for $6.99 a pound.
I was thinking today that I am thankful that I have a job in which to take a day off from. Does that make sense? There are a lot of people still looking for jobs or perhaps they have a job but it doesn't allow for much time off. Maybe they get a weeks vacation and they don't want to waste one taking their car to the dealer for a check up. So I am very grateful and thankful that I get 20 hours of time off a month (8 of that is sick leave) to use at my discretion. For so many people today's time off would've been a huge financial blow. I am fortunate.
If you work outside of the home, do you get time off or do you have to be very very careful how you spend it? I've said before that having sick leave in the "bank" is really having money in an emergency fund. That way you still get paid. That can be such a comfort. I mean what is worse than being sick then on top of that having to worry if you can pay the bills? I know that would probably make me sicker.
I am using the chili tonight so we will see if we like that one.
