Home Again

November 27th, 2016 at 05:53 pm

Got home late this afternoon. My time in Michigan was fun, and also exhausting. It was great to see family, but it's good to be home.

I spent only $19 on gas and $4 on road food. Oh. Except for the $585 I spent on a dishwasher. I ordered it from Home Depot online and it will be delivered next Saturday. It's a stainless steel Maytag (stainless steel interior, too), and is the second-highest recommended dishwasher by SweetHome.com. The highest recommendation, a Bosch, was just too expensive. This was not cheap, but within my means. It was 40% off, and the total price includes installation and parts.

The day after it's installed I'll be cooking dinner for my son's birthday, so it will get a good initiation.

I have the day off tomorrow! That's because I told them I would be traveling home today. But I decided to do it earlier, and I'm really looking forward to having a day to decompress.

I came home to another $1000 check in my mailbox from work. There is still one more in the mix, and I'm about halfway into another invoice. Since I MUST get going on Christmas shopping, this is good timing.

    I first read that as $85 and was going to go frantically searching for this deal. Smile
