Cookies, a Swap and a Cold

My Bits and Baubles swap package arrived today. Serena in New York sent it to me. She was very, VERY generous. The wrapping on the box itself is gorgeous. I opened it from the bottom so I could photograph how pretty it is. My package will leave tomorrow as tomorrow is the deadline and why do anything ahead of time. Sigh.

Hubby went to the store today and got five Betty Crocker cookie mixes for $1.50 total. Also five icings for $3.90. I won't bore you with the rest of it. I get on these couponing kicks for a few weeks and then I taper off. But with today's economy it's not a luxury any longer. I do enjoy the challenge and the feeling of accomplishment.

It's cold here, like it could snow any time now. Speaking of cold, one arrived today with my name on it. I blame my husband, who had it a week ago. He says a lot of people have it. Not that it matters where you get the cold. I am not a good sick person. It drives me insane to just lie in the bed. Hubby, not so much. He isn't a whiny sick person, but he stays in bed. I think a lot of how you feel is in your head, and I deal with pain everyday so a cold isn't any big deal. Of course I'll log extra sack time when I need to, but that's about it.
