What a morning!

October 3rd, 2019 at 08:30 am

It's ten a.m. and I'm just settling down with my coffee. Last night, when I pulled up in front of my building, I noticed that my front bumper was hanging on one side! I couldn't believe it. That is the third fender bender within a year. It must have happened when I parked in front of the Y to pick up my grandson.

I worried about it all night, and went out first thing in the morning to get it repaired. I went first to the last place that did repair work on my car. They were so busy I couldn't even pull my car into the lot, so I left without talking to anyone. Then I went to a place I had never been to before. It is pretty seedy looking -- old building, rough lot. But I remembered that it was one of the recommended places when I went through insurance.

Well, my prince was there, because this guy came out and popped it back into place, bolted it, and didn't charge me anything! That made me so happy!

Then, on the way home, I got a text from BFF. I pulled over to read it, because I knew she was awaiting results from a biopsy. Her good news -- it was benign! I'm so relieved because I was so scared for her.

I had to make a pit stop, so I stopped at Walgreens. I felt I had to buy something after I made them unlock the door to the bathroom, so I bought a big bottle of shampoo for $7. It is the brand I buy for company, since I use Head & Shoulders and purple shampoo for myself. Company will be well-fixed for a while!

Yesterday's spending was $17 for a curling iron and $1.70 for parking. I meant to pay .25 at the parking machine and somehow got charged for $1.70. I hate those machines. I also spent $4 for fast food when I was on the run. I took the boys for flu shots yesterday, only to find that the doctor's office didn't have them yet -- then it was to the Y where they took part in some after-school activities.

Also gave GS2 $10 for his care of Iggy over the weekend.

I'm doing laundry today -- in catch-up mode. All three hampers are full; plus, I had to wash my comforter (Iggy barf) and will have to wash his quilt as well. I had to wake him up this morning to feed him. He ate a few bites and went back to bed. I'm worried about him. Will call the vet tomorrow. Today we have music lessons.

I set my variables total at what I spent last month as the new standard. So far I have spent 4%.
