Ceiling is Repaired

September 12th, 2013 at 02:53 pm

Yesterday, the ceiling in my bathroom was repaired. Very nicely, I might add, and no cost to me. The contractor who was responsible for the damage was professional and personable from beginning to end.

I spent $2 yesterday on a cheap lunch at the station. I also did some laundry - $1.50 -- and I can't remember if I already reported that I paid my annual condo insurance premium -- $157.

Since I had a few extra hours at home yesterday, I did some cooking. I made a skillet dinner from ground beef, peppers, tomato paste and rice. Didn't turn out the greatest, but I think it will be better today after the flavors have melded.

I turned off my air last night with the expectation of some cooler weather ahead. The highest electric bill I've had yet was last month's $50. Not bad -- I thought it would be a lot worse.

Tonight my DIL and I are going to look at a condo that her mother might consider buying. It will mean getting off at a stop where I've never been before, but hey, I haven't had a train adventure in a while.

Speaking of train adventures, we had a guy this morning who was headed to a meeting, but totally on the wrong train. He had just been told to get on at a certain track number, but they change the track numbers! He didn't know that he had to check the board for any changes. I and another passenger helped him figure out what to do. The best solution was to get right back to the city, so he could get on the right train, but the inbound train arrives almost immediately after the outbound train departs. I hope he followed my directions and went immediately to the underground tunnel and got on the right side of the tracks! It's so confusing for someone who isn't used to the system.

I think tomorrow is payday! It is supposed to be the 15th, but as the 15th is a Sunday, I think we'll see it in our bank accounts tomorrow. Sweet!

    Our payday is the 15th too, I already can see it pending for tomorrow. Smile It's good and bad...bad because the next check has to stretch even longer. Glad that ceiling repair happened so quickly and without any headaches!!

    I am one of those people easily confused by train stations and schedules. Of course, I rarely ride them as a result.

    For the record, my lowest ever electric bill here was about $45,and the highest, over $100.

    If you like the contractor's work, ask for a card. You never know.

    PS, I have paid over $100 in the past when living in a house. Living in a small condo makes a difference!
