Still Waiting

August 26th, 2015 at 05:38 am

It turns out I have been approved to work at the museum, but they are asking for a certificate of insurance. My boss is trying to get that waived. I'm not even sure what that means, except that they are viewing me as a business rather than a person!

I took a walk yesterday to the post office, and I found $5.25 on the way! Pretty amazing! My post office purchase was for the board and not out of my finances.

I have a board social event tonight -- thought it was yesterday, but I was mistaken. It's at Panera. I'm resolved to only buy a beverage.

Something I ate didn't agree with me yesterday and I had terrible diarrhea in the night. I suspect my fried chicken was undercooked. I'm going to have chicken again today, this time oven-baked, and I'll make sure it is thoroughly done!

I watched "Midnight in Paris" yesterday -- wonderful! Today I will watch "50/50" and then will return the DVDs to the library. Maybe I'll watch it in the morning and make the trip to the library an afternoon walk. I do love this cool walking weather.

Variables spending is at 117%. If I were getting paid this month, this would be my payday, as it is the fourth Wednesday of the month. So I suppose I am technically starting the new month now. But I am still going to hold the line.

My BFF is having hip surgery this weekend. I'm not really able to help, what with my employment status in limbo. But yesterday she asked if I could help get her SIL to her house from Chicago. That would be September 5. I said I was glad to do it. At this point I'm not sure whether I am driving her or just getting her on the train (she's coming from the west coast). It's a three-hour drive, but an easy one. I'm in favor of driving her, but she is saying, oh no, I can't impose..... I imagine that is what will happen once we wear down her politeness!

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Potato pancakes & applesauce
Lunch: Chicken rice soup & sourdough bread
Dinner: Oven-baked barbecue chicken & salad

    I found a folded-up $5 bill and a quarter. Quite close to each other, too!
