Another Day

November 29th, 2018 at 07:59 am

I spent $17 at Aldi yesterday. As it turned out, I did not have to pay for my dinner out; XH picked up the tab. And I brought home half of my dinner, which I will have for lunch today.

But my Amazon Prime renewal hit, to the tune of $119.

My variables spending so far, very early in this pay cycle, is at 24%.

I'm not expecting any other big bills, and my Christmas spending will be done mostly with gift cards.

I'm negotiating with the family to change the Christmas dinner to a Christmas brunch. One member of the family is not available from 3 to 6. I'd rather get all the work done early in the day rather than late. We'll see how it goes.

Today I'm taking the boys to music lessons, as well as picking them both up from school. I have to be on my toes to get advantageous parking places so I can get to lessons on time. Last time we barely made it.

Oh, and on the good news front, my $200 check for working at the polls arrived yesterday. Hooray!

    Yay on the $200 check. Hope you can work out the Christmas brunch time. Won't your variables be less since you had double on a couple of them last month?

    No, I don't count assessment fees or phone bill as variables. They are fixed, so they are already subtracted.

    Guess I misunderstood. Sorry.

    No apologies necessary! My system is a little out of the ordinary, but it works for me.
