Well, the rain came!

January 30th, 2013 at 06:53 am

It rained all the way home yesterday and it's still drizzling this morning. They are promising it will turn into snow later in the day.

I left the house without my head screwed on this morning. I didn't pack a hat or scarf for the oncoming cold weather, and I didn't pack any food for today. I'm going to try not to buy any nonetheless. I have oatmeal in my desk, and I have a hard-boiled egg and three clementines in the fridge. I also have a bag of frozen peas in the freezer that I've never used. So I think I will have enough to get through the day.

My property management company is changing servers or something -- anyway, they have not withdrawn my automatic payment for my monthly assessment fees. I called the office yesterday, and I was told it might be resolved in a few days, but I could mail a check if I wanted to be sure. The trouble is, the automatic payment could still go through, and then I would have double-paid. She said the extra payment would go for next month's assessment, but I'm not sure I trust them to keep track of that. They seem a little disorganized. I'm going to wait for the 1st, and if it hasn't happened by then, I'll mail the check.

Tomorrow I am going out to dinner with members of my professional organization. It is in my new hometown, but a different neighborhood, so I will get off at a different station. It's been quite a month for eating out, much of it obligations, like this one. I hope next month will be quieter. That said, I'm looking forward to a good meal in a restaurant that's new to me but has excellent reviews.

    It's snowing here in Iowa. No school today, so I expect you will be seeing the snow at some point today. It is much colder than yesterday, too.

    Bless you CD. It sounds like you have things well under control. Enjoy your dinner!

    Light flurries in Minneapolis so far. I think that's all we're supposed to be getting today.

    I can't wait for a quiet social month myself! I finally feel like I might have a couple bucks left over by Friday, when I get my next batch of spending money. But I did purchase a year of web hosting that I'm going to pay off $10 or $20 per week, so I won't feel fully caught up until I have that paid off. And of course, Valentine's Day is coming up, and we love to get a babysitter and go out for a semi-fancy meal, so who knows when I can just start stashing spending money in my sock drawer again?

    Your property co sounds quite frustrating.
