I have not tossed one penny since our marriage and today my husband, who works at a bank, finally brought home rolls to put the pennies in so that we can take them to the bank. We counted (well, I counted) and we have fourteen dollars in pennies. That's a meal at a fast food restaurant! (It's also other more useful things but I'm on a diet so when I see things like milkshakes on TV I get hungry and bitter).
And I am with the sniffles- seriously almost went through like a box of kleenex today- estoy llena de mocos- and my nose hurts even though I am using the soft, anti-bacterial kind. Sooo, Dennis finally said "Don't we have anything that you can take so that I can sleep and you can stop coughing and sniffling and sneezing?" (It was his response to my asking him to take me to the drug store) I reluctantly admitted that we have some dayquil. It won't help me sleep but I feel so much better already. A few weeks ago, I was making fun of him for not taking medicine for his cold and now I am getting a taste of my own medicine.
I also skipped class even though I had a paper due in one class and a presentation in another- I actually wanted to go to the class that is about Martin Luther because there is a Catholic in that class and I wanted to see if she thought he was just a complete heretic. I'm praying now that my teachers will be forgiving- I did call and email to explain that I was feeling dizzy and tired and flu-y. Tomorrow I will try to be more productive. Keep those prayers comin'!!!
Point of the day- take the pills and save the pennies.
