Hanging in there

August 12th, 2015 at 11:43 am

I had a nice birthday celebration at my son's house. They made meatball subs and a zucchini chocolate cake. I took home leftovers! And they gave me a Ticket to Ride game, which we played with the grandsons. I also got many good wishes from friends, including you guys! So thanks!

This morning I went into the city for a meeting. Luckily, I didn't have to pay for parking. I resisted the temptation to pick up food on the way.

I earned $13 in Discover cash back rewards, which I transferred to my bank account. Unfortunately, my Discover bill is pretty high, with the vet bills and the window washing, as well as my regular groceries, gas, etc. I will pay it on the 15th, which is my "pay day." I put that in quotes, because now I will only get the little stipend from the College. My real pay day will now be the 3rd Wednesday of the month (starting in September), when I'll get my Social Security check. Can't wait for that, so I can stop draining savings!

I'm committed to stretching my food for the rest of the month. And tomorrow I'll enjoy some free entertainment when I go to see "Big Hero Six" outdoors in the park. I've seen it already, but it was very cute, worth seeing again with the grandsons.

    My Discover bill is high too, but I charge things instead of writing checks for individual stuff. I started doing that years ago when we were going to be charged for writing checks at a former bank...long story, but DH wanted to be loyal to the bank. I finally convinced him loyalty meant nothing to the bank.

    The cake was good! Very moist and chocolate-y, and made with no fats!
