New blind, and other stuff

April 8th, 2011 at 01:03 pm

Yesterday I got the blind replaced in my bedroom -- apparently at no charge. My grandson had made a "window" by snapping off the ends of slats. LOL. He's only four; he had no concept that he was damaging property. The maintenance crew did it while I was at work (with my permission) and there is no bill or anything, though they left a work order. So I think it's no charge.

Tonight I go see "Nickeled and Dimed" at a nearby college theater. I'm really looking forward to seeing it, but it starts at 8, which, these days, is awfully close to my bedtime! (I'm an early riser.) I hope I don't nod off.

Yesterday I put $10 into an envelope going around to collect funds for a farewell gift for my boss. She was fired and her future is not clear (though she is talented, and I think she will land on her feet). Anyway, I felt like giving $10 instead of the usual $5 or under. Looks like everyone else felt the same way, because the envelope was full of 10's and 20's.

I was looking at Zillow yesterday and saw tons of foreclosures in the area in which I want to move. Has anyone here ever bought a foreclosed property? I know nothing of the procedure, but it's very tempting.

    That was nice of you to chip in more than usual for the boss. I am not sure what her line of work is, but she should check over at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, there have been quite a few retirements going on over there. Maybe just an idea ...

    Haven't purchased any foreclosures, but DH saw a studio condo at Four Lakes where my bff lives for only $40K. It is tempting, but ...
