Goodwill trip

March 19th, 2015 at 10:26 am

Yesterday I drove, because I was meeting a friend for dinner. It turned out her husband had to go to the ER, and she cancelled. (She hasn't given me an update, but my understanding was that it was not serious.)

Anyway, I decided to use the time instead to stop at Goodwill. I spent $10, for which I got 2 shirts for BIL, a sweater for myself, a creamer for my white pottery collection, and -- drumroll -- a Swaroski crystal Christmas ornament for 2012 (in the box). They are selling on eBay for about $90-100. I paid less than a dollar! I may give it as a gift, but if not, I will definitely sell it!

I also stopped at Steak n Shake and got dinner for $5.

Had a late morning today, as I had to wait for a rep from the gas company to come and do a safety inspection. That meant I had to drive again, because the timing was wrong for the train. I've driven a lot this month! Thank goodness, the gas prices are still pretty low (relatively speaking!)

People at work are congratulating me right and left, telling me they are envious, will miss me, etc. The word has really gotten around. It is a nice feeling to hear words of appreciation, especially after some of the negative stuff I've had to go through. Oh well, water under the bridge -- I'm well on my way to a new phase in my life!
