The check came

May 14th, 2011 at 07:05 pm

The $100 check my son promised me came in the mail, so I'm doing fine now. I'm still $20 short on this month's budget, but I almost forgot -- I get a pension payment before next payday, so I really didn't need to worry anyway. I will not have to transfer any money from savings. Yay!

In celebration, I spent $$$. (Isn't that always the way?) Not cash -- it all went on Discover as usual and will be paid next month. I bought gas ($24 for half a tank), got a haircut ($18) and shopped at Goodwill ($68). That's a lot of money at Goodwill, but I found so many great things!

I got a lot of clothes this time -- 3 shirts, a pair of shoes, a jacket, a sweater hoodie, a sweater, a vest, a cami, a dressy tunic, pajama bottoms, and 2 knit tops -- all for $43. All good brands, excellent shape. I feel a little guilty because I have enough clothes already to get by, but I will certainly enjoy having something new to wear.

The rest of the spending was mostly on small gifts, and a few small kitchen items. I'm particularly excited about the four matching crockery bowls that I can use for all kinds of things -- and a brand new Calphalon spatula.

I also met all my diet goals today, did my strength training in the evening, and made a big batch of split pea soup. I can't believe the day is gone already. It was a productive one.
