I went and did the Save-A-Lot shopping and am done for the day. I had forgotten to get a Tyson pork sirloin roast, but lucked out at SAL. I found two packages of pork loin roasts marked down to $1.25 a pound. 4.5# all together for $5! I'll braise them both in beer in a little while so I have super tender pork for the freezer.

I use that for chop suey, BBQ and slices in gravy.

I am currently doing the happy dance (well, my version of it anyway). I still have some sniffles and a slight cough but none of it is productive and I have been given the green light for my surgery tomorrow. The surgeon could change his mind tomorrow if my symptoms change, but the clinic doctor signed off and didn't see that happening. He faxed his report to the surgeon's office immediately and by the time I got home they called to say it was a go!

Thanks to everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers. Now it is just getting everything ready for tomorrow and for the next few days. I will be home tomorrow, but won't be doing any cooking or cleaning for a bit so I want it all done now so TB can enjoy his week off....and wait on me hand and foot of course!

Wow, Z, that is a great bargain. I like pork loin for so many uses.

Subaru? Barkleys? Must have been making a pit stop when that one ran.

I do remember another one that got me : it was the Peanuts gang all coming out to gather on the field around Schroeder, who was playing the Star-Spangled Banner. No frills, no fancy trills, just plain, traditional style. Very nice.

I can skip a step for you! So happy you're getting fixed up, and so much sooner from your original posts about this problem. Good luck, I'll say a bunch of prayers for ya. Let us know you're ok as soon as your back online.

Will do. I am coming home the same day and have my notebook/tablet by my chair where I will be recovering, so as soon as I am able to think straight, I will check in.

I know this won't do anything for my chronic pain and fatigue, but just to get one other discomfort out of the way will be a real relief.

I loved the puppy one! I had tears, for Azia was three years old when I took her from the pound for she was to be put away to sleep.

The cupboards were bare!
I love the first of the year and I need all my meds. I got all of them on Saturday for $0.00...of course, it came out of my Flex Spending account, but it's nice to not have to hand the cash over. Now if I can just make it last till next week, I have a 3 month prescription due to be filled. My surgery hasn't sucked all the money out of the account, yet.

I liked the Peanut one, too! Here is a link to the Barkley's: Subaru Dog Tested. Dog Approved | Subaru of America

Heard on TV tonight that it was the most popular, per an online survey. Would have gotten my vote.
