Random Thoughts

December 17th, 2013 at 08:00 am

Yesterday I earned $9 from Pine Cone and $50 from MyPoints. I ordered an claim code from Amazon, but it's too late to use for Christmas. That's okay, I order from Amazon year-round.

I bought a Christmas present in one of the station shops. Generally I don't shop at the station -- high prices plus higher tax in the city. But I found a pair of earrings on sale that will be perfect for my DIL's mom. At least I think so! $14.

I also bought another Mega Millions lottery ticket as part of an office pool.

I managed to miss TWO trains this morning! I got to work an hour later than usual, and I'll make it up at the end of the day.

Our first (of two) family gift openings is this Saturday. I am not ready. Still need a gift for my ex & wife, and for my three grand-nieces. I have cute little fabric boxes shaped like Chinese take-out boxes for two of my grand-nieces, but I need to put something in them. I was thinking maybe fortune cookies and a gift card. As for my college-bound grand-niece, I am clueless. She seems to have pretty much everything. Maybe a scarf in her new school colors?

I am supposed to buy a city sticker for my car, but I keep forgetting. I looked on the city website this morning, just to see if I needed to move my car for plowing, and I see I have missed the deadline for buying the sticker. Now I have to pay a $50 penalty. GRRrrrr! I could do it online, but I don't know my license plate number by heart, so I guess I'll have to do it tomorrow.

The interesting thing is that I won't even get a sticker. It's a stickerless system. Ever heard of that?
