Sicky in the house

April 9th, 2005 at 06:47 pm

The first beautiful weekend we've had in 6 months, and we have a sicky in the house! He's missed 2 days of work, which will be unpaid.
Plus I bought medicine, plus kleenex and ice cream for his sore throat. It's true what they say - you can't put a price on your health - and this isn't even serious.

I walked to the bank today and deposited the 2 rebate checks. I felt very frugal as I walked home with a smile on my face.

We did have 2 free tickets to a museum for today, but because he's sick, I gave them to a friend of mine.

This afternoon, I raked up the yard and spread fertilizer around. Hopefully the grass will be better this season.

I currently don't have much of a parking space. I park halfway on our walkway and halfway on our street. We had a paving guy come today - $1800 for a tiny bit of space! Granted, he'd have to dig out some of the soil, but the curb can't be more than 3-4 inches high. I was not impressed. So...I'll keep calling around.

My cat's surgery was delayed again. The surgeon had a car accident, so she can't perform the surgery until this coming Friday. I can't wait for him to get better!

I also got a raise this week. I wasn't sure if I should expect one or not, but was happy to find out I did! I'm still debating on whether I should use it towards the new car, or partially to the mortgage, or if I should invest it in the house. We'll probably put our house up for sale within 1 year, and expect to make a great return on it.
