I blinked.

January 28th, 2019 at 02:48 pm

I didn't take the car to the city garage. Yesterday it looked pretty calm and clear. But today the snow is coming down, and I hope I haven't made a mistake. I can see my car from my window and it looks like there's a couple of inches on it, so far.

At least I did get it moved to the side of the street that will not get plowed today. This evening I will have to move it to the other side, or to the city garage.

I got out yesterday with no problem. Hit the gym, and then went to the library and checked out five books, which should keep me busy a while. I got to the library before it opened, so I went to Panera and got my free bagel, buying coffee for $2.

Spent $1.50 on laundry. Variables are at 26%. But here's the kicker -- four weeks and two days to go! And I'll have to pay my assessment fees twice this month, which are $412 a pop. I've already paid once, and the next one will come up a few days before pay day.

Schools are closed all around the area, but not, apparently, my grandsons' school. I generally do not chauffeur them on Monday, so I'm trusting that I won't be needed today. If weather gets worse, I hope they will close the school tomorrow.

  1. crazyliblady Says:

    What kind of assessment fees do you have to pay? That sounds like a lot.

    The assessment fees are for the condo association. They cover heat and all outdoor maintenance, as well as indoor maintenance for anything within the building but outside my condo (i.e. laundry room, basement, roof, stairwells, etc.) It's a pretty typical price for this area.
