Two Snowflakes

October 13th, 2015 at 12:52 pm

Yesterday I got a settlement check for $5 from Diamond Foods. I don't remember the details, but I'm glad to have it! I also used a $5 coupon for Target, which I think I got after buying the diapers. I used it to buy Command hooks -- had to pay $4 out of pocket.

I used the hooks to hang my bulky necklaces that don't fit in my jewelry box. They make nice art on the wall!

I also bought gas -- $28. Ouch! I'm definitely back in the land of high gas prices. I believe it was 2.67 per gallon.

I didn't receive a reply from the museum, so I'm not driving in today. I'm going to assume that Wednesday is the right day. I wish I would get an answer as to whether it will be a half or whole day, though. I need to know whether my committee meetings have to be canceled.

I think I'm going to apply for a new credit card. PNC is offering $100 bonus for spending $500 in three months. That's pretty good. It comes in the form of a credit to the account. I can't really use the high-spending card deals any more, but even I can spend $500 in three months and not kill my budget!

This morning I replaced the buttons on a favorite fall jacket. I've noticed for some time that a button was missing, so I finally dug in my button bag and found a nice set of four that I must have bought for something else long ago. I feel quite virtuous!

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Quiche and apple
Lunch: Chicken salad sandwich
Dinner: Toast topped w/ guacamole & fried egg

    Aren't those Command hooks the greatest thing?...I'm going to look up that PNC CC deal. Thanks for mentioning it

    I love chicken salad! I hope that once you start working at the museum that things will be more organized and there will be better communication.

    PNC ?? What does that stand for? If it's still good in December, I'll have to go for it! Smile (My Discover $500/mo spend for 5 months deal is over in November.)

    It's just called PNC Bank. It's based in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Maybe it's just a Midwestern bank. I got a letter inviting me to apply, so I don't know if it's online or not.
