I Always Forget Something

January 30th, 2014 at 06:22 am

Yesterday I forgot my phone. Today I forgot my breakfast. So I stopped at McDonalds on the way and spent $5 on a sausage sandwich and orange juice.
My monthly discretionary spending now stands at $299. So I'm still under $300; just can't spend anything today or tomorrow!

My knee is somewhat better, and I think I may try to take the train tomorrow. I think I will be okay if I lead with my left leg to step up into the car and pull myself up with my arms.

Tomorrow is the last day to get the monthly pass -- well, not really the last day, but if I don't get it tomorrow I will end up having to pay an extra fare to get downtown to the ticket office, whenever I ride it next.

So I think I will try it. I can't drive forever. I figure I would have to fill my tank at least five times at $30-40 a pop just to get through one month.

I talked to my Florida son last night. He was expecting my brother to arrive soon. My brother was flying to New Orleans and the flight was diverted to Tampa because of the storm in the South. Lucky he has a nephew there! We also discussed my upcoming trip. Looks like I will taxi to his house from the airport -- he has some conflicts and cannot chauffeur.

January is almost over. One more month of hard winter. I can do it.

    Sometimes on our trains (commuter rail to Boston), I've seen the conductor put a little step stool out for people to use--I don't know how they recognize the need or how you'd ask for it. I thought I might mention it to you. Good luck!!!

    Best of luck for tomorrow and you take care. Can you give yourself an extra 10 mins (or however long you think you might need), so you don't have to stress the knee too quickly? And don't forget your train pass ;-)

    Good luck tomorrow on the train. Smile
