Oh darn!

I looked at the certificate I got for winning the $500 off rent and realized it applies only to August! So I sent in my $500 shortfall in the nick of time, since rent is due on the 1st. (I usually pay on the 15th of the month before, because that's when I get paid.)

I'm still going to try to save $500 this month.

I am writing something I hope will be a novel someday. It's about a divorced woman who is struggling financially and becomes homeless through a series of misfortunes. I've finished Chapter 1. (Though I keep tweaking it). Chapter 2 is not coming easily. I'm trying to force myself to at least write a paragraph every day. My goal is not to publish it, though that would be nice, but just to finish it! I have a bad history of not finishing things and I want to change that.

Anyway, with the long weekend ahead and no real plans, I hope to make some good progress on that.

I got my "new" bras from eBay, and though I don't like the style quite as well as the one I bought at Macy's, they are great. Another thing I will do this weekend is go find Nordstrom's Rack and see what they have there.

I got a free impromptu lunch yesterday -- food left over from an event. I also had the chance to sit down and eat with some colleagues, including two of my bosses -- I usually just eat at my desk, then go walk the circuit around campus. It was fun just to relax and interact casually.

My boss and I have both had pretty major surgeries this year, so we were sharing war stories. What was funny was that neither of us was very well-versed about the details of our procedures and we kept saying things like, "Well, I couldn't do that, or my head would blow up." And laughing. It was good for both of us, I think.

    Sounds like a very interesting novel. I would like to read something with that storyline. Hope you get it finished someday!
