Friday, Another chart and below $10,000!

    
     This was a nice way to end a stressful week.  I completed another chart and I paid the mortgage for September along with an additional $1055.00 on the principle.  I am not sure of what our actual balance is as our house payment went up from $1445.00 to $1580.00 because of taxes and insurance increases.  They want to keep an extra percentage in the escrow.  This seems so silly to me as we will pay off the house in a few months, but the money will come back.

     I was able to get most things done in the shop yesterday and even rested for a couple of hours late in the afternoon.  I still have a few things to do in the shop (hem three pairs of pants and shorten the sleeves of a dress shirt) but I will do these while I watch the littles.  Hubs can run interference.  All the ripping is done, and everything is ready to sew.

     I thought I would get out in the yard today with the littles here, but it is overcast and rainy.  If it clears up later I will go out.


     I have two large beautiful eggplant brought to me by my sister and I am going to make two large pans of eggplant Parmesan today. I also think I will try and put away everything in the kitchen that hubs neglects to put away when he does the dishes.  It is comical.  I will take pictures of what he calls a clean kitchen.  If the dishes are done....

     I did get my roots done last night so another thing off the list.  They were bad.

     This morning I ran to the pharmacy to pick up Hubs meds, while he watched the littles, as we get up earlier when we take them, I was at the store before 9 a.m.  This gave me time to hit the meat department mark down section and I hit the mother load. Bacon for $1.25 a pound, and many packages of stew meat for under $2.00 a pound, pork sausage for under $2.00 a lb.  So I will be repackaging meat this morning with my seal a meal.  I bought $136.00 worth of meat for about $37.00.  Now I have to find someplace to put all of it.

     Well there are many things I can get done today even with the littles here, I just have to make sure the eyes in the back of my head are working.

What are you going to try and get done today?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  9. Well done on the chart! My daughter brought over an eggplant that she knew wouldn't get eaten since she is out of town, so I think the eggplant parm sounds pretty good for my house as well, maybe in addition to the meal I am planning and we'll get some leftovers.
