A few updates

March 14th, 2008 at 02:00 pm

Well, it's been a few days. I'll just review the financial highlights since my last blog.

First of all, my cousin cleaned out her closet and gave me enough tops to fill two shopping bags. One bag is what I will keep for myself -- the other I will offer to my sister, and then consign whatever she doesn't want. (This is with my cousin's blessing, of course. She would never consign anything herself.) Most of them are really nice, good brands and not worn very much.

Second, I've spent a lot (for me) on eating out in the last few days. And I did the treating in all cases. I took my cousin to IHOP for breakfast ($23). I took my DIL and grandson to Chick Fil-A for lunch ($9) -- we had coupons, and didn't eat very much. Then I took my DIL, grandson and a niece to Olive Garden for dinner ($46). I also bought gas for $29, only filling up half the tank. It was $3.49 a gallon! Hope to find a better deal before I hit the road to go back to NC on Sunday.

Oh, and I took back the dog ramp, so was reimbursed $128. I will revisit the problem after I get back home.

This evening I will make my second attempt at creating a new chicken recipe to submit in a contest. The first one was kind of a flop, but I have some ideas for improvement. First prize is $50,000, so it's worth a shot!
