What To Do....What To Do....

I can't imagine living in the world of a soap opera. So many decisions and problems.

For instance, you might have a son that you didn't know about and then you "accidentally" shoot him because he is fixin' to arrest you for killing your wife. But you didn't really kill your wife, your OTHER son did and you are just covering for him. So you shoot the previously unknown son, and then feel guilty for doing so. Man, now what do you do?

You try to make amends with the shot son but the non-shot son is ticked. So you tell your enforcer and his woman to get their best white casual outfits and take the non-shot son to your private island RIGHT BEFORE your other son questions him for the murder they think you committed.

See the problems that come up??

This week on General Hospital, Sonny who is out on bail for the murder of Claudia sends his son, Michael to "The Island" so that the police (and his brother, Dante) won't question him about it. The problem is that Michael doesn't want his Dad to take the wrap for the murder. Everyone fears that Michael will crack under the pressure of police questioning.

But now, Sonny, has sprung a conscious. He feels bad/mad that Dante, the son he shot, thinks poorly of him and wants to tell him that he did not kill Claudia as Dante thinks. But doing so would only put Michael in the line of fire.

So Sonny is in a predicament. He wants to protect one son but he also wants to be honest with another son. Poor guy. What will he do? Guess you will have to tune in to General Hospital on ABC to see what happens.

I am a participant in a Mom Central Campaign for ABC Daytime and will receive a tote bag and other General Hospital branded items to facilitate my review.

Publix 2/27

*No picture this time...*

I knew that there was a bunch of stuff that I wanted to get at Publix but I also knew that most of my coupons for those deals were going to expire on the 28th. So that meant--- the dreaded Saturday shopping trip. LOL I just really don't like grocery shopping on Saturdays because that is when everyone else does. I don't like crowds or feeling like I am being pushed through the store. But since I wanted to get the goods, I bucked up and just did it!

8 Right Guard deoderants
5 Green Giant Valley Steamers
8 Starkist Albacore tuna pouches
4 boxes of Golden Grahams
4 boxes of Lucky Charms
4 Knorr side dishes
6 boxes of Lipton iced tea bags
10 boxes of brownie mix
4 jars of Ragu
3 cans of Pam cooking spray

Total: 161.55
Store sales: 79.41
Coupons: 30.95

Total out of pocket: 51.19

Savings of 110.36 or 68 percent!!

The best part of all this saving is that my normal grocery list is getting shorter and shorter due to have a decent stockpile building up. And that is my goal, to stockpile so that in the end, I can lower our total grocery bill by using what we have on hand. So far it has worked out well. But I might need to get my carpenter hubby to build me another pantry. *giggle*
