Day Sixty-Four

April 25th, 2016 at 09:14 am

Calories: 1321

I seem to have found the sweet spot between too much hunger and too many calories! Having distractions help, too, when I don't sit around and think about what I can eat next.

Today I'm doing laundry -- I spilled salad dressing on a sofa pillow so that prompted running a new load. Hope it comes out, but it won't be any tragedy if I lose that particular pillow..

I have another baseball game today. Since the weather is good, it's a nice diversion to sit outside and watch.

I talked to a couple of lenders this morning about the possibility of switching to a fixed rate mortgage. Both of them felt it was a wash -- I could do it, but the payment would go up. I'm so close to the bone right now, I don't want a bigger mortgage payment. When my SS payment goes up in 2019 -- that would be a better time to switch.

I got my package of OTC freebies, which includes a LARGE bottle of sunscreen lotion. I will try to remember to use it every time I go out, as I have read it doesn't really keep well from year to year. I also have a large bottle of aloe vera. I've never used it before. I probably won't need it for treating sunburn, since I'm not going to burn this year Smile, but I tried it out as a moisturizer last night and I liked the feel of it very much. Anybody here use aloe vera?

Other freebies were ear drops, brushpicks, throat spray and ibuprofen. BIG packges, not samples. I really like this service!

Now that I'm finally set with a decent passport picture, I'm going to the post office today to get the process started.

    How long do you have before the first adjustment on your mortgage?

  2. Kiki Says:

    Is this condo where you will live permanently now that you are retired? Is there an elevator or only stairs in the building?

  3. CB in the City Says:

    Petunia, I have 3 1/2 more years before the mortgage adjusts.

    Kiki, this is my permanent residence, until I can't do the stairs any more. How I wish there was an elevator! But I am doing fine now, I've gotten past the pain issues I had last year. And I'm expecting weight loss will help even more.

    That's nice the freebies are good sized!
