Another freeze, and more babysitting

February 8th, 2019 at 06:24 am

The temperature plunged again, so I decided to stay inside today rather than do my planned errands -- gym, gas station, oil change. But it turns out GS2 is still stick, so I will go over there. DIL promises it will only be a few hours today.

I got my refund yesterday! I think that was the fastest return ever! I moved $500 of it to savings, and the rest is going to stay in checking to cover the property tax, when it comes due in early March.

My granddaughter is a Daisy scout and she is selling Girl Scout cookies for the first time ever. I decided I could afford to spend $30, so I ordered them on her web site. Nice that a grandma in Illinois can buy cookies from a granddaughter in Florida and get them delivered!

Variables are at 48% with two and half weeks to go. But getting the refund has made me worry less.

    I ordered online cookies from my half-sister. I'm a little sad that it costs almost $10 bucks to deliver! To get the lowest cost per box, I just got 6 boxes since I'll definitely eat them all over a longer period of time.

    Maybe donate instead $30 to Operation cookie drop and don't eat the cookies!

    Yay on the refund!

    I continue to think back how amazing it is to have the wonders of technology!
