As you can see from the total above I am slowly chipping away at the deficit. I was able to pay another $100.00 yesterday into the bank account. Every little bit helps. Next week I will attack it even more. Even though I am busy and stressed I can still make progress and that makes me feel more empowered.
Also there is a gas war on here. This has never happened in the 25 years we have lived here. Because we are the last fresh water sea port from the ocean we have most of our gas barged in. Normally at least for 20 years our gas prices were a little lower than every one else in the state. But since the recession hit we have had the highest rates. I could drive anywhere 60 miles a way and find gas 35-50 cents a gallon cheaper. So frustrating, we also have very high grocery prices because all trucks have to come in and dead head out. But a new gas chain opened up and they have lowered gas from $3.69 to $3.09 in one week. Can you believe that? All the other stations have no choice but to match them. Now if we could just get a Winco to open here for groceries. Isn't this great! It makes such a huge difference to our budget when gas goes down to around $3.00 a gallon. I am so happy.
Hubby is at a conference this week so he has the Sate pickup to take him back and forth. No commuting costs this week at all. Yeah!
These are all little blessings but I am grateful for them. Still plugging away on the show. Will finish costumes today, then it is just on with the show.
Out My Window: Cold, foggy wet, typical winter weather.
I have a pile of alterations waiting for me, yippee! Another blessing!
Have a great and productive day!
