It's Pay Day -- Almost!

June 13th, 2014 at 04:03 pm

I say almost because my pay deposit is pending in my account.

I went ahead and paid my credit card bills anyway, just changing the posting date to Monday. I'll pay the mortgage on Monday, and transfer money to savings. It will be $1400.

Yesterday I had free pizza for lunch, in recognition of a colleague who is leaving. After work I went to her farewell party at a wine house. I only bought one glass of wine, but also paid for a colleague who had previously picked up a tab for me. So it was $23. Whew! No one was getting appetizers, and I was starved, so after the party I went to McDonalds and got a burger for $2.

This morning I had a rough awakening, so I decided I would take the edges off by getting a muffin and coffee at the station ($4). Well, that was a bad decision, because when I came to work our office was invited to finish up a breakfast buffet that had been set up for a trustee meeting. I certainly could have forgone the muffin!

I still have two green peppers to use up, as well as some lettuce and cherry tomatoes. So I'm thawing the rest of the sloppy joe filling and will turn it into stuffed peppers. And I'll make a salad on the side.

I'm all for fresh fruits and vegetables, but it sure can be a challenge to use them up in a household of one!

    It wasn't too hard for me as long as I got smaller sized ones. But then again I don't eat meat really anymore. Sounds like an okay day money wise. I've been having those alot lately too.

    I know what you're saying about fresh fruits/veggies. That's the main reason I buy mostly frozen veggies, and only a few fresh fruits (such as bananas that I know will be used up in smoothies.)
