This morning I took the grandsons to IHOP for breakfast. Since I had a coupon for 1 free Rooty-Tooty stack of pancakes, my total bill was only $14. I gave the waitress $4, which was 20% of what the total would have been.

Afterwards, we went to Walmart so I could get another car seat, and at least be legal on the way home. (Actually I think they're old enough to legal without a car seat -- they're just not big enough!) I had my $25 gift card, so the seat was essentially free. I spent $6 on cereal I will keep at my house for the boys, and gave $5 toward a fundraiser for a family whose child was an inadvertent victim of gun violence.

After the boys were picked up by DIL, I started a load of laundry ($1.50).

My variables spending is at 19%, with 12% of the month gone. Need to slow down a bit.

I took a look at the car today and I see that painting the front is even more necessary than I thought. It will start to rust if I don't do something.

Property manager replied that I am responsible for window damage (no surprise!) He gave me the name of their vendor, so I will call later today.

Check engine light is still off, so I think I will defer repair until it comes on again.

Going into the city tomorrow for Treasurer's meeting, and to take my forms to museum supervisor. May have a parking fee to pay.

I may go to visit BFF on Thursday, but it depends on how her doctor's visit goes today. She may be a candidate for a hip replacement.

But right now I think I'll take a nap!

    Has tipping in the USA gone up to 20% to was service really tops? I hope it's ok to suggest you call at least 2 other glaziers for a replacement estimate, possibly sending a photo. I'd ask if there is a discount from the place recommended by the property manager and what discount is offered to seniors? Suggest checking Yelp or a popular complaint site 1st

    I happened upon this Jay Leno and product made in Chicago called Quik-Glo which might help until you get body shop grinder process

    Jay Leno,

    Yes Sanfu, 20% is now considered standard for tipping. Or so we are told.

    That's too bad you'll have to pay up for the pane. Hopefully you can find a good price.

    Just the other day my SO was mentioning that we hadn't been to IHOP in a long time - not since September! It's been Chinese buffet type places most every month since then ... (tolerable, but not my first choice - would much prefer IHOP!)
