Just stuff

January 27th, 2015 at 02:32 pm

I found two cents this morning. I find it amazing that I still find coins in winter. One was outside the Walgreens drive-up window. The other was inside the station.

My SmartWool socks were delivered yesterday, which was a nice surprise, since the site indicated it would take 5-10 business days. The socks are thinner than the ones I am used to, but that will be better for work, actually. They may not be as warm as the thick ones, but should be warmer than regular socks.

I drove yesterday because I thought I might need to go to the bank to get a registered check. But I am not ready yet to send the tax/reinstatement forms for my org. It is such a mess. We may need to get help from a professional.

So I drove home, and stopped at a Goodwill on the way, to drop off my old coffeemaker, and to shop. It is not my regular Goodwill, and it's clear that the donations are not the quality I'm used to. Nevertheless, I found a nice Land's End sweater (in yellow! I've been looking for a yellow sweater for ages!) And I found a couple of shirts for my BIL and some gift bags and tissue paper. I spent $22.

Afterwards I went to Subway and got the sandwich special -- Chicken Teriyaki -- for $3.

I also ordered replacement mittens from Amazon yesterday for $33. I think one final thing I might buy this month is a replacement for the bath tray "tower" (holder of shampoo, etc.) in my tub. I noticed it is starting to rust in places.

So, do you remember my $3 lottery win? Well, I got TWO forms from the state that I have to fill out and return before I can collect my $3! What nonsense. One of the boxes I checked was that I understood that I may be contacted by the media. I'm sure! I should have just taken it to a place that sells tickets, but with my schedule, it's easier to mail things. Well, not this time -- I've learned my lesson.

    That is pretty bizarre with the lottery ticket = for just $3!

    I didn't know what SmartWool socks were, but I was inspired by your post to check them out. Turns out my mother-in-law has been putting a pair in my Christmas stocking for years. They're my favorite socks, and now I know what they are! They always were toasty warm...

    Red tape reduction list right there!

    Just imagine - years of anonymity on the sa blogs and you get outed because the media are interested in your $3 win :-) Only kidding - though I wish the next scratchy you receive results in enough moolah to really excite the media!
