This and That

December 9th, 2016 at 03:45 pm

The plumber came back and cleaned out the tube connecting the dishwasher to the sink. Apparently some crud was blasted in there when he cleaned out the drain. Now it's working -- I think. He says so. I don't have enough dirty dishes to make it worthwhile to run it, so I'm going on faith. There was no charge, thank goodness.

Spending today:

$9 on breakfast and lunch
$50 on fees

So much for my plan to eat out of the pantry & freezer. When I got up this morning, I realized I didn't have anything prepared to take to work. Plenty of food, yes, but all in its raw state. I'll have to work on that this weekend.

And the $50 fee. My stupidity. Chase has charged me a $25 fee in October and November because my savings dropped below $15K. Yes! I don't look at my Chase account very often, so didn't even notice. Now I need to transfer some $$$ from my credit union to bring the savings balance back up. I would just close the Chase accounts, but the College is direct-depositing my stipend there, and I would have to go back there to sign some papers (during office hours) in order to change it. It's an hour drive the opposite way from work, so that's not going to happen.

Grrr. Hate stupid fees. At least I can take comfort in knowing that Chase paid me a $500 bonus, so I'm still ahead.

Just got another $1000 check from the museum. Will probably just put it into checking to go toward Christmas expenses.

Still trying to find pet sitters during the cruise. Waiting for a callback now.

I ended up not going to the Happy Hour downtown. The plumber made me late to work, and I worked late to make up the time. Saved me some money.

The girlfriend luncheon this weekend is in jeopardy because 12 inches of snow are predicted. I sent an email to the others asking about a re-schedule. I hate to be a killjoy, but I don't want to drive an hour and a half in 12 inches of snow.

And the lunch with my local professional group has been canceled because only two people signed up. I'm not surprised, everyone is too busy this time of year!

    glad to hear the dishwasher is fixed! makes sense to cancel the lunch if big snowstorm is predicted. Smile

    I'm sure Chase would be willing to waive the fees if you ask. I usually send a secure email and I've never been turned down - probably asked 3 or 4 times.

    Is there any way to do the paperwork via fax or scanned email documents?
