Costco Shopping -July 9, 2021

12th Costco Shopping in 2021 – $197.19 today / $2068.39 this year

Hi, I am doing well. I am healthy and still have the same job (still working from home). A few weeks ago we thought my mother was gravely ill. I even packed my bag for 3-day travel. Then it turned out she was just fine. That was a little stressful.

Back to Costco. I didn’t take any pictures while I was shopping. I couldn’t focus, I forgot to bring a camera, etc… just tired…

I went to Costco with a friend. Her birthday was coming up in a few days, but I had nothing prepared for her. I’ve been busy and distracted. The time flew by, and I had absolutely nothing ready for my friend’s birthday. So, I did what most men do – I took care of it with money. I took her to Costco and paid for whatever she picked up, including 2 dozen roses.

I bought a case of Monster Energy Drink. I rarely drink energy drinks. But, when I need it, I need it desperately. For example, if I have a big project that’s approaching the deadline, energy drinks help me stay all night and work.

Since I work from home, I have time to prepare and enjoy Coach’s Oatmeal for breakfast ($5.99 after $2.00 off).

This is how I make my oatmeal – Southern style. Let me know if there is a tastier way to prepare oatmeal.

  • 1 part oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 part milk
  • 1 1/2 part water
  • Microwave 3:45 at 50% power. Let stand 2 minutes.
  • Add cinnamon, salt, & honey to taste.
  • No topping for me – (too much work)

After Costco shopping, I told her we can have dinner anywhere she wanted, and she picked Costco pizza (again). again, maybe she didn’t want me to spend any more money after paying for all her Costco shopping, or maybe she couldn’t resist the smell of Costco pizza.

This time the soda fountain was opened for the customers. It was no longer restricted. But they still had the sippy-cup lids instead of straws.

Life goes on. Please enjoy whatever you have, rich or poor. I had more fun when I was poor.
