Hit $30

August 5th, 2013 at 01:30 pm

By that I mean, I have now officially made $30 by picking up money off the street. Only took two years! But heck, it paid for one month's electric bill!

I have moved into my new office. I'm not totally unpacked yet, but I've made quite a bit of progress. My new office is substantially smaller, but I have a lovely view -- plus when I leave the door open, I have windows on both sides, so it is very light. The plants I couldn't fit in have new homes.

I spent $27 on groceries this weekend, and $17 at McDonalds. Whoa, I'm really hooked; I have to stop. But I won a serving of fries and another Redbox movie. I rented Argo which was GREAT! Can't believe I waited so long to see it!

I am feeling so much better than I was on Friday, when I stayed home from work. I feel almost completely well. I'm still going to see the doctor, but for the four-week followup.

I've been checking on my sons cats and fish while he is on vacation, and on Sunday I did what I feared I would do -- I locked myself out. I was in his place, and decided to check for packages. I left the apartment door unlocked, but when I went into the vestibule, the door locked behind me. DARN! My first instinct was to go home -- but I didn't have my keys. I had nothing with me! So I realized I would have to wait for someone at his building to let me in. Someone came along pretty quickly, and she knew my son and his wife, so she was happy to let me in. That'll learn me. I have to be more careful.

    $30 sounds great but in the context of two months gas bills, sounds even better!

    And I loved Argo. I even read the book, and am on book 3 by Tony Mendez. All very good and interesting. Great stories.

    I pick up most of it on my walk to and from the train stations, and in the stations themselves. I also find quite a bit on campus, as it seems the kids don't care about dropped coins. The dime that put me over the $30 mark I found in the grocery store parking lot.
