Yesterday's Outing and Other Stuff

September 8th, 2021 at 02:33 pm

Yesterday was my day out -- gym, vet, drive-through lunch.  I spent $14 at the vet for fluids and needles, and $3 for lunch at Burger King (great coupon).  I had a lot of leftover fries, so this morning I chopped and refried them with peppers, onions and celery, and had it on the side with eggs and stewed apples.  Delicious breakfast!  I also froze half of the chicken nuggets, and I will eat them later on Hawaiian rolls as chicken sliders.  So that $3 went far.

It would have been an uneventful outing, but a storm broke out -- a wild one, though mercifully short -- and then I had to pull over twice for fire trucks.  Much excitement!

Now two days at home -- today I will do some laundry.

My son's shower is finished, so no more daily visits from the grands. Frown

My phone problems were resolved yesterday.  I called Consumer Cellular.  I had to wait a half hour for an agent, but then I did get to experience their legendary service.  The woman I spoke to told me she could activate my service, but it would disconnect our call, so I had to have another phone handy.  Well, I don't have a landline.  I told her I could go across the street to my son's house and use his phone as the second.  That was fine with her, and she hung on while I tromped over there.  I thought that was great!

Everything is working fine now.  After all that trauma, I'm now looking forward to a lower phone bill.

Oh, another thing.  I caught an error in the formula in my variables spreadsheet.  My variables this month are actually 15%.  Quite a bit lower than I reported before.

    I love BK's original chicken sandwiches. Have a coupon for 2 sandwiches and 2 fries for $4.99. I cut them in half (because they are pretty large) so I get 4 lunches out of it. And your breakfast sounds yummy!

    Glad it all worked out with Consumer Cellular.

    I received my new smartphone in the mail today but won't have a chance to try activating it until Friday.
