The Reimbursement, and My Weekend

March 23rd, 2015 at 10:49 am

Well, I spoke too soon about getting reimbursed for the subscription I didn't want. A rep called, and in the end I accepted a 35% discount. He is correct that I did not follow up about the free trial -- I should not have assumed that the trial was not in force just because I was having trouble with the website. In their eyes, I violated the agreement by not canceling within 14 days. Another live and learn lesson. It seems like I keep saying this, but I don't learn!

My dispute through Discover is still open, though, pending the actual 35% reimbursement on my card -- it hasn't happened yet.

I had a great weekend, though. On Saturday, I went out with my son's family for pizza following my grandson's violin competition. None of us got to hear him, but the judge's remarks were very complementary. My contribution to the pizza lunch was $20.

On Sunday, I finally made the St. Patrick's dinner. The reuben sandwiches turned out wonderful, and I made homemade French fries that were great! I decided against the potato farls; didn't want to try something new after all. Then we had shamrock shakes for dessert. Okay, I know, not very Irish at all, but fun! I did put Celtic music on the Bose!

My grocery shopping this week cost $32 and my ten items were: cat food, rye bread, toilet paper, Dawn, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, pantiliners, mint chocolate chip ice cream, corned beef and a big bag of frozen broccoli/carrots/cauliflower. I had one $1 off coupon and six of the items were on sale.

My laundry cost $3.

My pantry and freezer are getting more bare, as I stick to the ten-items plan. Or, I should say, they are getting more roomy. I actually like having a pantry where I can see everything. Meal possibilities this week are: Vegetarian spaghetti, peanut soup, French onion soup, egg salad, pancakes and veggie fried rice.

This morning I overslept (forgot to set the alarm). I missed the first train, got the second (after walking through snow, ugh!). Driving was not a possibility as my son needed my car today. The worst part, though -- I left my lunch bag on the train. It held a boiled egg, cheese, a quarter loaf of sourdough bread and granola bars. It's sad to lose the food, but I've also lost the lunch bag! I'll never get it back. I'll just hope that the food ended up with someone who was hungry and not in the trash!

    How do you like the Bose? Was thinking about
    getting one.

    Maybe someone will turn in the lunch bag? Worth a phone call?

    I LOVE the Bose! It was definitely a good purchase!

    I think I will probably let the lunch bag go. I have learned that very little gets turned in, and I don't think the lost & found department keeps a lot, either. I have been told, "Oh, we don't keep umbrellas." Really? I would think you'd keep anything that gets turned in, but go figure.... The lunch bag was a freebie, and I don't have to use one much longer.

    That's weird that the lost and found department doesn't keep many things ... we keep stuff for two weeks - everything (although food does get tossed after one day)
