Just Food

September 9th, 2017 at 09:55 pm

That's all I'm spending on is food, and not much on that. The CSA veggies are plentiful and seem to feed us continually. Corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes, coleslaw, roasted carrots tonight with a bit of chicken. I made some banana bread with a couple of aging counter top dwellers

We're still in strict budget mode, and will likely be that way for a while. I'm trying to figure out the best and cheapest way for us to get from our house to my aunt's 100th birthday party in Fargo, ND. The airfares are not pretty, the train runs at awful times, and the drive seems very long. I think we need a Star Trek beam up or some floo powder.

I've been out of sorts for no real reason except money. DH has been reluctant to transfer money for his grad school tuition from his British account, and I'm feeling like I'm juggling everything to manage here. We need to work it out. We never argue about money, but this is bothering me a lot.

In slightly more upbeat news, I got a notification from Delta Dental that I never cashed a check they sent FIVE years ago. They'd like to send me a new one--hooray! It's only $50, but heck, I'll happily take it.

I think part of my mood is the complete turmoil the house is in because of the bathroom remodel. We seem to have things everywhere. Maybe I'll retrieve another plastic bin and fill it up with the bathroom items that didn't fit in the previous two.

Onward--let's face these things.

    It sounds like a second bin is in order. Control what you can.

    I'm in the thick of 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up', theories and processes so I suggest you consider 'how much is enough' in the way of bathrm supplies. What will satisfy the three of you during this period of upheaval caused by renovations in progress. The extras can be boxed and await their 'joy sparking' when it's all done!

    Hang in there. It sounds like you are coping well. Hope you can work out the travel for the party.

    Good luck I'd love to go to someone special's 100th birthday.
