A low-key day

January 14th, 2013 at 06:50 am

After the grandkids went home yesterday I was pretty bushed, so I made it a low-key day. I didn't go anywhere, and I didn't do any housework other than getting things back in order and doing a load of laundry. And speaking of laundry, I'm banning myself from the use of the $1.25 washer. It's not enough bigger than the .75 washer to justify using it. I just need to be satisfied doing a somewhat smaller load.

I spent the day reading ("The Face" by Dean Koontz), playing computer games, working Sudokus, and watching some TV ("The Human Stain" - movie; first part of the Golden Globes). I wanted to watch "Downton Abbey" but I was too tired by 8 pm to stay up any longer. I trust I will be able to catch this episode next week at 7. That has been the pattern so far.

So it was not exactly a productive day, but it was a no-spend day.

This morning I packed my breakfast and lunch in my train bag. (Breakfast: English muffin, two clementines, hard-boiled egg. Lunch: pepper beef casserole) It was very cold, but I was well-bundled for the walk to that station. Only my face was cold.

I think this will be another no-spend day.

I'm really looking forward to getting my (decreased) paycheck tomorrow. I just want to know how hard the hit will be!

Still no snow, so I haven't had to move my car except when I need to use it. So far it's definitely been worth it to give up the $60 parking space!

    Stay bundled up! This weather is awful. I had to contend with a mutiny of munchkins this morning fighting over who had whose glove/hat/boots. My high schooler actually thought she wasn't wearing a coat because she'd have to use her 2nd locker to put it in. And speaking of Downtown Abbey, I was so bummed it was only one hour; I think the first week was two?
