Eat from the Pantry Challenge, Wk Two -- and Sleep

Frugal Dad is vowing he's going to make four new changes for the new year, including 8 hours of sleep nightly, and an hour of exercise daily.

Yeah, right.

We have had the wackiest sleep schedule all week -- usually up until 1 or 2 a.m., getting five or six hours, then crashing at night before doing it all over again. Not pretty. A two-hour nap helped this afternoon, but it's past 11 p.m., I need to pack for a gig in Camarillo, CA tomorrow -- and once again, 1 a.m. sleeptime is staring me in the face.

Only $6.22 spent at King Soopers tonight. We got a lot for our money-- a discounted box of fried chicken, a bag of salad (also discounted--part of our new resolve to eat more fresh veggies), and a gallon of milk -- 99 cents! That brings the total for the month to approx. $30. I don't plan to shop again for at least a week.
   Lots of stuff left in the frig, and we've almost worked through all the holiday cookies. Thankfully. The sugar cookies decorated by my piano kids have been dubbed the 'gravel pit' cookies, for all the stuff lumped onto them.

Off to make some good strong tea-- then finish packing.
