A busy Saturday

June 19th, 2010 at 06:28 am

I have a number of errands to run today - I just made my list and I need to get going! Orders to deliver, lawn to mow, go to the bank, finish some sewing projects...oh, and some cleaning. Frown I did do the brunt of the housework last night. DH was coming home late from work, so I took advantage of the "me" time and mopped a few floors and did a good scrub of the living room and bathroom. Took care of the laundry as well.

I've been getting up and walking with a friend every morning before work. We start at 5:00. DH has been getting up around the same time, so I've been getting up at 4:45 and packing him a lunch** before I go for my walk. We don't walk on the weekends, and I must have been tired, because after I got up this morning with DH, I crawled back into bed...I managed to fall back asleep and there I was until 8:20. It wasn't solid sleep for that extra 3 hours - I did have a cat or two pouncing on me, but I sure do feel rested now!

We received our auto insurance policy last week - I had DH make changes since we have both cars paid off and we don't need the extra covereage we had for the business. It went from $2600 last year to $1840 this year! I'm trying to get the savings built up so I can
pay it all at once; right now we're doing monthly installments. With DH now working (and getting overtime) I hope to have the EF built up quickly and our remaining debts paid off.


**I know you're saying "packing him a lunch? Why doesn't he do it?" Well, he just doesn't. He's not at all a morning person, and won't eat a sandwich made the night before because it's "soggy." If I don't pack him a lunch he doesn't eat - or worse - he purchses food out. He appreciates it, and I know he's eating something during the day. All you moms with really picky eaters at home, this is what the adult version is like.

    I see nothing wrong with you packing his lunch...if it means he eats what you pack and it keeps him from going out...we all do things to make life easier for the ones we love.

    I'm not a morning person either. If my food isnt packed the night before, it just doesn't get packed. You're doing a nice thing for him!

    Cure for the soggy sandwich. Do not put the mayo or mustard on the bread. Put it on the inside of the meat or cheese. That way the mayo/mustard never touch the bread. If he wants it to touch the bread while eating it, he just opens it up and flips the meat/cheese so the mayo/mustard side now touches the bread. Voila, dry not soggy. I did this for my spouse.

    That is great that your insurance dropped! Lots of people have had their insurers lead policy costs upward, even without accidents, so you are obviously doing something right. Oh, and great idea from Elisabeth regarding the sandwiches. =)
