A very nice day.

Friday, June 15, 2018

We went out to eat today with our friends. I thought it was going to be lunch, but we ate our dinner at El Castillo Pizzeria & Tex Mex Pizzeria, Tex Mex & Italian Food again. I think I misspelled the name of the place the last time I wrote about it.

Then I took my husband to Super Shoes and bought new shoes for him. When we went to pay for them, the clerk said they were having "buy one pair, get one pair for free." I bought sandals for myself and he bought sneakers and I told him to get sandals for himself which he did. I had a gift card from returning men's boots that I never wore. I needed boots for the snow, but I didn't have to go out in it.
Then I went to K Mart and I got $15 off the total cost. I bought a new blouse and a wristwatch. Then we went to Ollie's Outlet where I had 15 % off and I bought a new shower curtain for the guest bathroom. I washed the one that was in there and the paint washed off and it looks really old because of that.

This was the first I had shopped for us since last year and I felt good that we only bought what we needed.

This morning I deposited money we are saving for another house and there was more there than what I had counted. I put it into the account. When I got home, the balance in the account was way less than what hubby had written into the register. They gave him a new register in which they had written the correct amounts. That was a big let down for me, We have someone that is paying us back money that we loaned to him, and hubby said he wrote in the wrong figures for our state and federal tax refunds. Minus $900 is the amount that differed between what he had entered in the register and what the bank had. The bank was able to show where the error was.

All in all though, the dishwasher repair was made this week and I paid for that, and I was able to save money and deposit it for the new house, pay for our meals today, then go shopping for myself and my husband. My husband pays the house payment and the utilities and puts gas in our vehicles while I work on projects when we have money to pay for them.

I will probably have to pay the pool place to open our pool which will be setting up the pump and filter. The covers are off of it. It needs to be cleaned and filled with water. Our temperatures are supposed to be near 90 degrees F. and we are to have high humidity. I didn't think about setting up an appointment for them to come here until after they were closed.

    Sounds like some super shopping today. Sorry about the accounting error but at least it wasn't you overdrawn on an account. They already know you don't have money and then sock you a big fee because of it!!!

    Hope you have a great weekend.
