My clock is ready

January 9th, 2013 at 07:01 am

Today I'm going to spend $45 to pick up my Lenox clock. The timepiece had to be replaced. While I don't particularly need another clock -- I seem to have a lot of them -- this one is very attractive and small enough to fit in anywhere. And I'm thinking about giving it to my DIL for her birthday.

Picking it up will mean a little extra walking, too. I'm glad the weather is pretty nice today.

I got my ComEd bill and it is up by $11. My kilowatt usage is up. Perhaps because I spent more time at home -- or maybe just turning on more lights against the darkness? Anyway, my combined gas & electric is under $50, which is right where I want it to be.

I had oatmeal in my office for breakfast and brought in soup to have for lunch. I've been doing well at avoiding fast food.

However, on Friday I have a "dinner date" in Naperville -- will meet up with the woman who is turning over the Treasurer's duties to me on our professional organization's board. It is an Italian restaurant I've been to before -- it can be pricey -- but I think I can get an appetizer or salad and be okay.

I am among those still waiting for the first 2013 paycheck. I don't get paid until Tuesday. I am hoping to see not too great a change, but I will deal with whatever it is.

    No, it is a design called "Forum." Looks like a little Greek temple.

    Great job on no snacks on the way to work. I know how much you like those. I must say your gas and electric bill are amazing! The weather here in Houston is dark and rainy. Enjoy your sunshine!

    My condo is heated by radiator, which I pay for in my assessment fees. So the gas is only for the stove, and the electric is only for the lights and appliances.
