Headed to Portland!

August 7th, 2015 at 03:03 pm

DD1, granddaughter and I are about to leave for Portland. I am eager to get going- should be a great girls weekend! Its about a 4.5 hour drive, but hopefully we will get out of this darn smoke for a few days!!

The painters are here finishing up today. I think we are down to our last week of contractors next week and we will be done. It will be so nice to get back to a normal life. Home remodeling and living in limbo are not cheap and I am READY to stop the outflow of finances.

My power steering went belly up on my car a couple of months ago. It is a 2005 - and I don't want to replace it yet. But repairing the PS would be more than I am willing to put into the car. So, I am getting a free workout on my biceps every time I need to turn the darn thing. I have decided I will drive it till it dies, and just keep saving for a newer car. But man, that thing is HARD to turn. (Just keep thinking BICEPS, ray)

This past week I did much better on lunches. I had a sandwich each day for lunch I spent no money on eating out for lunch. Having a functional kitchen again makes all the difference for meal prep.

Well, DD1 is here so I gotta run. Have a great weekend all!

    That is dedication driving a car with no power steering! You will well and truly deserve your next car by the time you get it!
