I've been sick. Still am- And between practically coughing out a lung not being able to sleep right or eat much and still being forced to go in to work i just have no energy for anything.

Todays my first day off in a while and I just wanna sleep (or attempt to) and continue to contribute to my ever growing mountain of tissues. The only thing thats been making me feel relaxed is the books i've been reading.

Well the books i just finished. (I was reading the last two books in the hunger games.) Now im bookless- and grumpy and thinking about ordering new books from amazon. (Ive got my eyes set out on this and this.)

Before I got sick I did a few things...

I started a care package for my younger brother (he's in college) And i was about to ship it until I realized my older sister ate some of the things I put in there for him. (thanks wendy.)
The picture is about  two thirds of whats actually in the box. Its going to cost me an arm and a leg to ship this though. So little brother when you read this. You're Welcome.

Also I straightened out my hair (my hairs naturally all afro'd - no relaxer for this gal) And I hate it so i need to wash all the straightness out of it. (No pics since i hate it.)

I cooked my ever famous bow ties & sausage which i haven't really cooked a meal since i came to nyc so thats a big accomplishment.  I cooked enough for 3 days and left the rest of the ingredients uncooked and wrapped up in my freezer. So when i wanna make bowties again i just have to heat up a pan and dump everything in. And then I attempted to make spinach jacks as seen on cooking comically.
It uh...Didnt come out as magnifique as i wanted it to look but yeah.... it tasted yummy as heck though. The garlic butter drizzled on top really makes all the difference.

I've been really getting into coupon shopping. Thanks to my mother and my seemingly impossible $20/week groceries budget but it's achievable with and Wish i took a picture of my last trip to stop and shop so i could show you. But oh well.

Lastly Ive been thinking about the ways I do my sponsors. I still want to keep my sponsor bar free but i might do it as a month to month thing or a every three month thing...thats just something i've been thinking about. But if you wanna spot on my sponsor bar definently shoot me an email

Well Im going to attempt to sleep.
