Hot & Humid Coming Back

August 31st, 2015 at 06:44 am

I'm going to get out for my walk as soon as possible! I'm going to walk to the grocery and buy cat food. My cat has informed me that she doesn't want to eat the dregs that are left in her bowl. I also need to "buy" quarters for laundry.

Yesterday I had some free entertainment. I went to my grandson's first soccer game. What fun! He was a little rocket, and I'll bet he slept well last night!

No spending yesterday, except for a $1.50 load of laundry.

I invited the family to dinner on Wednesday so I have to come up with some ideas before I shop tomorrow. I'm pretty much out of everything.

So tomorrow begins another challenging month. I won't get my SS check until the 23rd. That is actually early enough to cover a lot of my bills. I just need to be careful with spending, so as not to raid my savings any more than necessary.

I am going to go to my BFF's on Saturday (picking up her SIL on the way) to help her out after her hip surgery. There will be some cost with that, though I am sure my BFF will insist on paying for some things. I also owe $34 for the family football pool (wouldn't it be nice if I won this year?) I haven't done anything about the window or the car. The check engine light has been off for quite a while, so I'm not worried about that any more. And I can wait on the window until October. The other big thing is painting the car before winter. That will have to come from savings, I'm afraid. Maybe I can find a shop that will charge less than the $2756 that is in the slush fund.

I am not going to pay the annual fee to use the senior fitness center until I have normal cash flow. Exercise is free, after all! I just have to remember to do it. I have a book on Yoga, that I have yet to dig into. Walking is free. I can do it.

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal w/walnuts & cranberries
Lunch: Pizza bread & mixed veggies
Dinner: Grilled cheese sandwich & tomato soup

    For your car finish, do you have any schools teaching auto body repair? My daughter was just mentioning this as an option for her car. At the school she checked out, she'd fill out a form with what she'd like done, and if her car fits the profile of what they need for working on in class, she'd pay $10 per hour of time (I told her to get an estimate of hours - I could see that adding up quickly!) This school also does auto mechanics. Not sure this is an option for you, but thought I'd mention it!

    Is there a sealing finish that can be done instead of a full paint job? Ask if they give discounts on AAA?

    It doesn't seem there is a program like that around here -- at least not mentioned on their websites. I think I might ask about prices in Indiana, when I am visiting this weekend. I'll bet they're a lot lower. There was a shop I used when I lived there that had reasonable prices and honest business practices.

    I need more than a seal; I'm afraid I've let it go too far. AAA discount is a good idea, though!

    What kind of cat food do you buy? I get Purina One Beyond for my cat - there's almost always $2 off coupons on the Swagbucks site, and I found one store here that sells it for $7.58 recently. (3lb bag)

    I get Purina Naturals. I do enter the coupon codes on the MyCatPerks (?) website, so I am earning points toward a free bag. I'll check the Swagbucks site.
