Odds and Ends

August 9th, 2018 at 12:13 pm

DH has started his unemployment application, and I'm happy to see he's been going to the health club. He asked if we should cancel it, but it's cheap and keeps his mood up.

I cashed out some Swagbucks, filed for a flex reimbursement for his hearing tests, and did a quick pantry/freezer inventory. I'm going to try to limit grocery spending to $25-35/week while he's unemployed. We have a full-ish freezer and weekly CSA deliveries, so not much to buy. And I may try to sow some radishes, carrots, and spinach where the blight has destroyed my tomatoes.

My major purchasing quandary is our UK airfare for December. We've paid for our airbnbs, so there's no question we'll go. I need to look into all our air miles and see if I can patch one or two flights together out of those.

    It sounds like the health club is a wise decision since it helps keep his mood up. Hopefully between that and leaving a stressful position, he will feel better. Maybe there is an even better job waiting for him.

    Hope your radishes, carrots, and spinach come up. I sowed some in pots a couple of weeks ago because the bunnies ate everything DH had planted in the ground. It barely got up and they ate it and it wasn't because he wasn't using stuff to keep them away. They are bad this year.

    Thanks, Rob. We've got a pretty good rabbit-proof fence out there.
