Catching Up

May 14th, 2018 at 05:35 pm

So I'm catching up on things. I spent $3 on laundry, and $16 on groceries, and $27 on cat food.

And I'm sprucing up. I replaced my kitchen placemats, bought a much-needed pastry mat, and replaced my bathmat and bathtub shelves. (While I was gone, my bathtub shelf pole collapsed and made a mess. The pole was not salvageable.) I also bought some organizer baskets for my pantry. The total cost of these items was $129.

Variables are at 56%, with 10 days to go. Of course, the vacation cost was not counted in variables; that will come from savings.

I had some financial wins, too! A neighbor gave me two large packages of kitty litter because her cat had died. My ex gave me $100 toward the vacation -- I guess he was feeling a little guilty about all his European escapades. I've had a couple of Pine Cone payments, and one of my mystery shop companies paid. On Mother's Day, I got two free meals, and another one the night before.

I'm still tired; still regrouping. Luckily, I don't have to watch the boys today. GS1 had to stay home because he had some teeth extracted, so DIL stayed home, too. I'm on duty again tomorrow!
