Since Monday is when I am supposed to clean the kitchen (according to the cleaning schedule I made back in September), I tidied the kitchen cabinet where I store various things including kitchen sponges, spare rolls of foil, boxes of food storage bags, trash bags, etc. This cabinet gets messy rather quickly as I pull things out and it's been awhile since I last tidied it. I generally like to keep at least one spare box of different sized food storage bags, foil, wax paper, etc., so I took the opportunity to take stock of what I had and what I needed to buy for the rest of the year, especially with the almsgiving coming up in December.
In the early evening, I went to the pharmacy to find out what is happening with my medications. Well, apparently I've reached my insurance plan's limit on that particular type of antibiotics, which is why that particular prescription hasn't been filled. They claim they never received the other prescription request from the doctor's office even though I called the doctor's office last Friday. It was too late to call the doctor's office when I came home, so I'll need to call them tomorrow.
After the pharmacy, I went to the dollar store to stock up on foil, wax paper, cling wrap, and snack bags. And then, I did some grocery shopping (will do a separate post on that) and picked up some air fresheners. They were the same price at the grocery store ($.99 each) as at the dollar store, but I had a store coupon for $.60 off on the purchase of 3, so it was cheaper for me to buy them at the grocery store.

I spent the rest of the evening relaxing. One of my aunts called and I chatted with her. Once of my friends called and I chatted with her, too. Then, I video chatted with my daughter. In between, I read blogs and commented. And watched TV.
On Monday, I was grateful for:
- A cooler day
- Getting the kitchen cabinet organized
- A safe drive to the shops and back
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Video chatting with daughter
Tuesday's To Do List:
- Office work
- Call the doctor's office
- Bring trash cans in
- Dust/tidy/vacuum my bedroom
- Water the front garden
How was your Monday?
