Easter Spending

April 11th, 2014 at 07:07 am

I had a $10 coupon for Fannie May candy, so I stopped at a store on the way home and got Easter candy for the grandsons -- $28. Yeah, that's a lot for candy. But they don't get it very often and I think they're old enough now to enjoy the good stuff.

For my granddaughter, I think I will buy a swimsuit I saw at Kohl's (will use my Kohl's cash) and will also include a couple of new outfits I got at Goodwill. She is too young to want a real Easter basket, and heaven knows, she has enough stuffed animals and the like.

This morning I got gas. The price has shot up in the past few days so I spent $49, the tank being near empty.

With gas over $4 a gallon, this will not be a cheap month for commuting by car. Oh well, I will be back on the train next month. I can't remember if I've shared this already, but a friend has told me that seniors get a half-price discount, so if she's correct, in a few months my ticket will only be $65. That'll help!

This morning I also stopped at a grocery and bought donuts for work -- $7. This is the departing colleague's actual last day, so treats were encouraged.

Looking forward to catching up on things this weekend. My knee is feeling better than it has in a long time. I don't know what's done it -- whether it's the prescription pain killer, or the fact that I'm walking less, or my muscles getting stronger -- but I'll take it! Feeling better is giving me more energy to get things done.

I did not declutter too much yesterday. I cleaned out my train bag. I did not get to the papers in my office, as I had hoped, because other work interfered!
