I Succumbed to Garrett's Popcorn

November 15th, 2013 at 06:22 am

Some days, when I'm just feeling sorry for myself, I cheer myself up with Garrett's popcorn. Yesterday was one of those days. It was $4.50 for a small bag of cashew caramel crisp, which I bought at the station on the way home. I ate every morsel. It turned out being my dinner, as I wasn't hungry when I got home and went to bed early.

Why was I feeling sorry for myself? I was dog-tired and foggy from a sleepless night, my knees were hurting for some inexplicable reason, and work was stressful.

I'll try to make these little treats few and far between. But boy, was it good!

I forgot to mention that the lunch I had on Wednesday was free! The nice woman who wanted tips about my line of work insisted on paying, not only for me, but for my friend who got us together. Nice! And it was a wonderful lunch called Pot Roast Skillet -- pot roast with potatoes topped with fried eggs. Sounds weird, but it was delicious.

I found another penny this morning, this time in the station.

It's payday! So I will be sending in my mortgage payment and paying my Discover bill. I'm also going to transfer $800 into savings. It's been a good month for saving. Next month will be a different story, with all the traveling expenses popping up.

Tonight I need to do some catching up on housework before my friend comes for the weekend. But I'm not going to stress myself about it. I know she is not coming to see how clean my house is, and she does understand my break-neck schedule.
