Saturday Update

May 2nd, 2009 at 06:38 pm

Last night, after I got my mom home from the hospital and settled in at home, I came home and collapsed (thankfully not literally!) I was so worn out, I dont think I have ever been so glad to see Friday night. So this morning, I am just relaxing. The hub had to work today, and DD3 is walking in the local March of Dimes Walk for Babies. I am playing hooky from life.

We are still in holding pattern on a vacation decision. Although my compadres are all displaying serious signs of reluctancy and change of heart...I have started to resolve that we may not be going. If we don't, I will use what money I get back (from airfare and hotel) plus the money I saved for spending, towards DD3s surgery.

My debit card expired at the end of April. While it was slightly embarrasing when I couldnt pay for lunch yesterday (the hub whipped his debit card out, so no worries)...there is good that comes from expired cards. I received an email this morning that my Netflix autopay was unable to process, so I went to my Netflix account and cancelled. I rarely watch a movie, and the email was a reminder to cancel. I have a movie on hold at the library that will suffice for my next movie craving...and then, I'll watch what's on tv. Savings: $4.99 month.

Tomorrow, the hub is playing in a golf tournament, so my goal today is housework and laundry, so that tomorrow can be just a fun day.

I worked on the budget this morning. I am happy to say that, because the kids have been repaying their loans, all of the tax money has been repaid to the CHristmas Club, Vacation fund, and emergency fund.

Well, best get the laundry going!

    Glad you got all your funds back in place and fully funded.

    I had that debit card issue too. My bank didn't send me the new card until AFTER the one I had expired!

    My feeling is that the flu hype is ebbing - I'd go and enjoy myself.

    If it is pandemic, better to catch the stuff in the first wave, get some immunity, so your immune system is in better shape for the second, far more dangerous, wave.

    Great news that DD3 is walking for the March of Dimes - I think that volunteer work/thinking of others will help her attitude tremendously.

    My sister in law is heading to Mexico next Saturday! They are not worried!
    Glad Nana is snuggly back in her own house!
