Well I am certainly pumped, to say the least, about two thing!!! Thing number one is, I went shopping at the commissary for my very first time yesterday...Weeeee! It was so much fun, even though I did miss the opportunity for lunch with my hunnie:( Apparently I was there while he came all the way back to this side of town for his break:p Bummer, but I did get to see him in passing on my way back...He's so handsome on his triumph/bike:p Anyway, recently I've been noticing that my bi-weekly trips to Wal-Mart has been leaving our bank account depleted more then usual! I just have to say that I am not one of those people who buy the name brands of everything from Kosher pickles to Purity milk, so I am price conscience. But even so, I am still leaving that place with MAYBE six bags in hand and $150.00 less in our account! I get it all home and I'm like, "This is all I got for $150.00?" What the heck! So imagine my joy and surprise when I left the commissary yesterday with a whole cart full of groceries while only spending $135.00! Knowing my prices at Wal-mart really helped me note the major deals I was getting while there...The differences were anywhere from fifty cents to seven dollars even! I really noticed it with meat cost. I like to make pot roast for the hubs but the chunk of meat I buy at Wal-Mart usually costs me like $13 so its a meal we don't make often:( However, yesterday I found the same piece of meat, with less fat, costing me a grand total of 5.00! WOAHA! I could go on all day about the savings I found there but I really must get onto the next thing I'm excited about:) But to wrap this up...If you haven't ever shopped at the commissary then you should! I understand that not all commissaries have such huge variations over Wal-mart in prices but Ft. Benning sure is nice:p
Okay, so today was a run day for me. I stressed about it all last night because the thought of the treadmill is really giving me stomach cramps but yet I haven't found a good place to run outside still...The little half mile loop inside my apartment complex isn't cutting it anymore either. So today, I went out in search of a nice little residential area but what did I find? I found the coolest wooded trail ever! I stumbled onto it by complete accident and I'm thanking God so much right now! He knows my anxiety about running in traffic so this is perfect for me...Its a two mile hard packed sand/dirt loop, through thick beautiful trees that, at some points, has a river running through it...Bliss...It was so fun to run... I was just kept chugging along, enjoying all the greenery, sounds of birds chirping, wind in my hair, and even the sweat running down my face because it meant I was getting the job done:p I came up over this one hill and was surprised to see a gorgeous lake hidden back in there! I was totally wishing I had my camera to show you all. The trail looped around the lake and then back to where I started. I am happy to report that I ran the whole durn thing!!! I was even sad when it ended:p This is going to be my running spot for sometime now so I can breath easy about my anxiety of having to run in town and continue my running outdoors in this beautiful oasis! That's all for now:) Tomorrow I plan on posting about my, new found, dislike of cheap alien comedy? However, that might change when tomorrow gets here:p So I'm off to work! Have a wonderful Friday everyone:)
P.S. Thank you all for taking the time to feed my curiosity of how you got into blogging and why!
