A Long Day, But With Free Dinner and a Bonus!

February 21st, 2018 at 02:08 pm

It was a long day yesterday. I picked up the boys at 2:30. It was pouring down rain, so even though it was warm, there was no outdoor fun to be had. I took them to their home, and badgered them to do their homework and practice their instruments. At five, GS1 was picked up to go to baseball practice and he was returned at 7:30. I made the dinner that DIL had laid out: spaghetti & meatballs. (What a week for spaghetti!) At 8:30 I got them into bed to read. DIL came home around 10.

It seemed long because the boys fought tooth & nail against everything they had to do. I don't know if it was just a bad day for them or if this is the new normal.

Anyway, I didn't spend anything, mainly because DIL had provided dinner. She also brought me a beautiful flower bouquet from the event that she worked.

I made an egg casserole for breakfast yesterday -- eggs, bacon, peppers, bread crumbs, cheese & milk. It was delicious -- and it was actually my brunch, since I woke up late and didn't eat until around 11. Then I had the free spaghetti dinner, so my food stores were little affected yesterday.

Oh, and I found a can of tuna last night that I hadn't counted before. It was hiding!

Today I will need to stop at PetSmart to get some fish food.

I'll pick up the boys again after school today, but DIL should be home around 4.

In good financial news, I redeemed my bonus yesterday from my new BOA credit card. All together, I earned $180. This card has the nice feature of a 10% cash back bonus when you redeem it to your own BOA bank account.

    Good score on the free meal and then finding the tuna!

    Maybe the gloomy, rainy weather had something to do with the grandsons and their behavior. Let's hope it is as simple as that.
