Our final grocery bill came out to $104 and change and that included a big bag of canned goods for the food bank collection box in our lobby. We had racked up over $30 in store savings and another $5.35 for our Senior Discount. Then there was my prescription, a month's supply of meds for a whopping 17 cents! I wonder why they even make us pay that, they should just comp it. If I ever get teeth I know the grocery bill will go up a lot but for the past 6 months we've been spending so little in the grocery store I often wonder why we bother to go at all.
Yesterday I posted on FB that I had caught a glimpse of myself in a mirrored wall and was shocked at how skinny my legs are. I wear leggings everyday now and they are baggy. Baggy leggings, seriously? This morning as we were leaving the apartment my husband said, in wonderment "Your legs are so skinny" .
No matter how fat I may have been at any point in my life I have always had skinny legs. I told my husband, when I was a fat teenager my father said "You look like a barrel on toothpicks" My husband said "Oh now that was a not a nice thing to say" I replied "Well, you know my family - how many 13 year olds have a mother who encourages them to commit suicide?" My husband, bless his heart, made a noise of disgust and said, Yeah, she wasn't exactly the maternal type." Y'all know what a charmer my mother was and I do wonder, on occasion, if she is still alive.
I've lived years of my life being fat, and years of my life being ridiculously skinny and only a few being a normal weight. Right now I am not exactly fat but not exactly normal but through it all I have always had skinny legs!
