No-Spend Day #1

March 19th, 2017 at 07:03 am

That was yesterday. I did not spend anything. I am not even doing laundry until payday.

I did make croutons, as planned. I only used half the loaf, as that seemed to fill up the baking pan I used. The croutons turned out great. It is pumpernickel bread that I am trying to use up, and it makes pretty good croutons.

I finished reading my book, and I'll be starting a new one today. Luckily, I have a nice stash from my last trip to Goodwill.

I'll be eating Reuben sandwiches again. It's like Groundhog Day! Same day over and over! Luckily, I really like Reuben sandwiches. I'm also working on the potato salad, grapes and carrots.

I will go to the gym later. My only challenge, so far, with not spending until Wednesday, is that I'm going to run out of clean workout pants. I'll have to come up with something else. Or maybe I can handwash a pair.

Now, to the diary. JB has reappeared and Mom is dating both him and my father, though from her tone I am getting the impression that she is only dating JB because she is feeling sorry for him. She is clearly getting more involved with my dad's family. My grandparents were very fun and personable, so I can see that they must have been a big attraction for her as well as the attraction to my father. She had a wonderful time with the whole family at a hamburger cookout in one of the state parks on July 4. Dad is driving now, so he must have come up with a car somehow.

She finally spelled his name right, but then reverted back, so she is still not sure.

Almost forgot! I got a check from the museum yesterday! It covered two of the three outstanding invoices. (This doesn't change my no-spend plan -- museum money is designated for savings.)

    Good for you on eating up those leftovers.

    Hope you can figure out a solution so you have clean work out pants.

    Glad you received a check from the museum. Yay!

    Interesting update on the diary. I look forward to these.

    Wonderful to hear you got a substantial payment from the museum, one less thing to worry about Smile.
