I got to drive my new car again yesterday, haha. We don't go somewhere much all week, LOL. But, dh had called that repair shop on the other side of our town and the guy said to drop it off our old car and he'll take a look and see what needs to be done to fix the engine light. So, I had to follow dh over there in my new car. I still think it's zippy! haha.
Well, I'm 0-3 the last 3 mornings of my mom taking her meds at 7:30am. At least I have figured out I can reset/extend the time to alert her. The crazy thing is the whole reason I set it for 7:30 instead of 8:30 was because she had not been getting back to her apartment between 8:30 and 9:30 to take it. Now I'm setting it at 7:30 and then extending it another hour of notifications and she's back to taking it at 8:50am LOL. I'm just going to leave it at 8:50 for tomorrow and see what happens. Watch - she won't take it then!
I'm taking off work an hour early so we can go into the city to pick up some house maintenance stuff before the business closes at 5. DH replaces our furnace filter every April and October and we buy them from our HVAC guy. He also wanted to pick up some sprinkler system part from the guy who did our sprinkler system. So, yesterday I call our HVAC place and get a recording. I try back and still get the recording, so I leave a message that we want to pick up the filters at around 4:15 and just want to make sure they are still at the office then. The guys wife called me back and said they are actually down in Las Vegas for a trade show and no one is at the office, but they also own the small business next door and she will have them grab our filters and we can pick them up there and she'll just bill me when they get back. Ok, works for us. Then dh got a hold of the sprinkler guy (who dh has known since he was a kid) and he said they are leaving in the morning for Arizona, haha, but he will leave the parts by the office door (he has an office next to his house).
I also have a big grocery order to pick up at Walmart at 5pm. I didn't order the expensive organic milk I like. While I like it, I don't need it. It costs 3x what regular milk does per gallon. While doing my online order I also noticed I can order a case of 12 cans of canned chicken via shipping at a cost of $1.66 per can. To order from the store, for pick up, is $2.44 per can. Since I want quite a bit to stock up on (for that delicious enchilada recipe) I'm going to order the online case and save there. Walmart was also out of their cream of chicken soup, so since I need add some things to get my order over $35 for free shipping, I'll add some of that. The store brand cream soups are half what Campbell's cost and I can tell no difference in casseroles. The only thing I buy Campbell's is Tomato soup. But, I'll bet if I tried the Great value soup, it would be fine. I should try it. We eat a lot of tomato soup.
It's payday. Need to get online and pay my mortgage as well as pay off what I charged on my rewards credit card since the last paycheck. Also, our auto insurance 6 months premium is due. I'm glad I was able to get back to paying it every 6 months, rather than monthly. That saves, too. When we were building the house and my cash flow was severely whacked, I had to go monthly for about a year or so.
