Too many days off, money to the challenge, and weekend plans

January 11th, 2008 at 07:38 am

I'm off today and tomorrow and then work Sunday (and wouldn't you know, I'm scheduled to work during the Cowboys game!) and am off again Monday. In fact, this coming week I have four days off. That's too many days off. I'll enjoy them, I'm sure, but the bank account likes to eat larger checks rather than smaller ones. Ah well, it is what it is.

My challenge money is up to $32 now thanks to change I found, some change DH gave me, and a couple of meatless meals.

Sometime today I absolutely must do laundry. I've been meaning to for several days and still it sits! But now we're down to almost no clean clothes so it really must be done today. It's going to take me quite awhile to do it so I'm procrastinating but the more I procrastinate the longer it's going to take. Bite the bullet, Denise, bite the bullet!

Tonight's dinner will be creamed chicken over toasted english muffins with salad and green beans. We have some of the chicken I cooked in the slow cooker leftover and some of that great gravy DH made so I'll thin that with a little milk, add the chicken and a few vegetables, and it will be good, I'm sure.

I was just emailed the electric bill for the little house I rent. It's almost $65! Too much considering I was there maybe three nights during that period but a neighbor was watching my cat and worried he'd get cold so she kept the heat on for him. Ehhh, $65 for a non-frozen cat is reasonable. Wink

Okay, off to separate the clothes, again....

    I haven't bitten that bullet yet but will and when I do, I'll let you know how it is. Wink
    I like the map, too!

    Oh, yeah, I was looking at your map the other day. It's cool. Not as purty as your smiling face, but neat.

    Have you ever tried going to Flylady.net? on the Mount Washmore issue?

  5. DeniseNTexas Says:

    LL, I'm a big fan of hers and know all about Mt Washmore. The problem is that I have no washer and dryer right now and have to go to a laundrymat to do the laundry. And the nearest one's hours don't always coincide with mine. So I end up waiting until I have a day off to do it. Considering the price of gas and the time issue, it's a better choice than trying to go to the laundrymat every day or even every other day!

    I've got the mountain of laundry to tackle as well today. The only good that can possibly come out of it is maybe the Laundry Fairy will leave me some money....

    Did the laundry fairy leave you money?

    I still haven't gotten it done. Today just fell apart. But tomorrow is laundry day, period!
