More Quiet Days

January 21st, 2018 at 06:36 am

Yesterday I started some laundry before going to the gym. I realized as I was loading that I was out of white vinegar, which I use as a fabric softener/deodorizer. So I decided to stop at Food4Less (right by the gym) to get some. While there, I also bought rolls and tuna. The total cost was $7.

I also found another dime!

Variables are at 84%. My new budget cycle starts on Wednesday. I'm so excited that I will come in under, even with cash-flowing the airline ticket. I don't think I will have to spend anything till then.

And I've already earned $161 in snowflakes, which, this year, will not go to college funds, but to fund my own gap year.

I spent the rest of the day at home, mostly reading. With the house all clean and not much to do there, it was a pleasure.

While cleaning on Friday, I threw a bunch of random papers in a bag, so I am determined to start working through them and getting them to their proper places, or thrown away. Meant to start yesterday, but actually, I was enjoying my book too much. I also watched "Paint Your Wagon" on TV, which I guess I had never seen before, because everything in it was new to me, except for some familiar music.

I anticipate today will be quiet, as well. I am expecting to do quite a bit of after-school care this coming week as DIL's company gets ready for a big event, and she puts in some overtime. Then she will be in New Orleans for that event the following week. DS will be taking the time off to be Mr. Mom, but I am sure my services will be needed. Then I go to Florida as soon as DIL gets back! So, busy times coming; I might as well rest now!

    Don't forget you will be getting a raise on payday! Two percent, but better than zero...

    Would be nice, but actually, no, my payment will be just the same. Even though my Medicare payment hasn't changed, the 2% from Social Security is going back to Medicare, because they couldn't take it before under the "hold harmless" provision. Not sure I understand it, but I do understand I'm not getting it!

    My mom got a $6/month raise in her social security payment. @@

    Pretty sure the government needs it more than she does. :/

    That's a good amount of snowflakes! Yay, you!

    The whole Social Security/Mediare thing is so confusing. My mom and dad would complain every time they got a raise, the raise would be eaten up by Medicare and then additional funds would take be taken for their supplement so they usually wound up losing money.

    I had never heard of using white vinegar as a fabric softener! I'll have to give that a try.
