Grocery Shopping and Transfers

November 19th, 2012 at 07:36 pm

We went to the grocery store today. I am glad that Thanksgiving only comes once a year. I spent $174. That is $74 more than I had budgeted. Fortunately I have the money in my account to cover it. I am responsible for the corn casserole this year. I will make it on Wednesday so it just needs to be heated up on Thursday. This is will be the first Thanksgiving since my dad died. It will be a sad day.

I set up a transfer out of my savings account so that I can do my shopping online this Monday, what is called Cyber Monday. I hope to find some good deals. I know what I am getting DD, just need to find some sale prices in order to get both of the items I want to get. I have no clue what to get DS. I will probably just give him money or something.

All that will be left will be the two young girls that are in the family. I get each of them a couple of things to open. I hope to be done by next Friday with all the shopping.

    Dumb question, but why do the ingredients for corn casserole cost so much?

    I know the pain of that first Holiday without a loved one (especially a parent). I hope you find joy in your memories and that your Holiday is filled with new memories to treasure.

    Your post does make it sound like you only needed to buy ingredients for corn casserole, but you went over budget by $100 because of Thanksgiving. Did you buy other things?

    I hope you can remember all the wonderful things about your dad this Thanksgiving.

    Remember the good things about your dad. Maybe you could reminisce with others telling funny stories or something. That's how I have been remembering my dad for the last 30 years. When my grandma died in 1986, my cousins and I sat around laughing about silly things she used to do. It helped a lot to remember that and that she was no longer sick, but in a better place.

    I understand feeling sad about it being the first Thanksgiving without a dad. Frown
