Slightly Larger Potatoes

May 3rd, 2016 at 02:57 pm

Here are our major financial matters for today:
DH's car is currently at the shop under investigation. Again, hoping it's something minor. In related news, while I was away we found a new Volvo mechanic for my car. He's unbelievably close to us and half the price we were quoted for most repairs. But he just does Volvos, so that leaves my husband's clunker ineligible.

I'm selling a book today, and buying a purse. How's that for excitement? My black purse has started to look really tatty after four winters of hard London use. The lining is ripped, the strap is fraying, it needs to go. I am not a designer purse fan, but I want something reasonable, attractive, and workable. Voila--the local FB list offered a brand new Franco Sarto bag for $8. So that's on my list for this morning.

I also need to go to the university to drop off my expense reports--and best of all--go to the annual health screening. I'm picking up DH and we'll both eventually net $150 each for doing this.

My MN girlfriends are thinking about a trip to Montreal this summer, and I'm eager to go. We'll see how it pans out.

I've been fasting because of the health screening and am now REALLY hungry. Maybe I should pack some fruit for after the blood work.

    I'm a big fan of Montreal, suggest you constantly wear a small USA lapel tab to different yourselves as tourists since locals decline to speak English. There are tons of events all summer and hope you'll check to choose the week that offers your favoured entertainment. Fashion is ignored for the most comfortable walking shoes. Efficient to use subway system. Prices are high compared to USA but exchange rate is favourable. Check with your bank as some charge fees for foreign ATM plus exchange rate fee. Airport and hotels are generally most expensive exchange.

    Thanks, snafu!

    I don't think getting a new to you purse is boring. Smile I don't replace purses often, but when I do, I do enjoy the process of looking.
