Busy Day

October 31st, 2005 at 06:13 pm

I got to work about 30 minutes early and was really hopping till just a bit after 5 (I'm supposed to go at 4pm). The new package of assignments came in, so that made it alot easier to make people's schedules for the week.

When I got home it was already dark (5pm traffic, plus daylight savings.) Dad had supper ready - a baked potato with cheese, sour cream, veggie bacon crumbles, and cottage cheese. It was yummy and warm. Smile

I finally went ahead and ordered my family's Christmas gifts from mypoints. I got my mom a gift card from Macy's, my brother 2 gift cards from Gap (they only had the $10 ones left), and my Dad a webcertificate that can be used anywhere online. I hope they arrive in time for Christmas. I also got a notice that the gift card I bought for my brother's birthday shipped. I hope it gets there in time for his birthday (Friday).

So far tonight nobody's come by my door trick or treating. Frown I sure don't want that whole bag of candy sitting around here, so I guess I'll take it to work tomorrow - maybe give it to the front desk lady to give out - or put it in the breakroom for the drivers!

So far my ebay sales aren't going very well. I have one watcher on one of the items, but not much in the way of looksie loo's. If I could figure out a good way to describe my scarf and the bracelets, they'd probably make good Christmas gifts for someone.

Last night I gave myself a french manicure and also painted my toes with a sparkling red polish. My toes turned out good enough (not much skill involved there) but the french manicure --- well, let's just say nobody would mistake it for a professional job. Smile

Hard to believe that it's already the end of October. 2005 has just gone by so fast. Only six more weeks till I'm out of my 20's - Yikes! Sure am not where I wish I would've been by now financially (or in other ways too.) I guess its good that I've learned my financial lessons the hard way now, rather than later. Though I do sometimes envy people who somehow seem to have it all together financially (and otherwise) from a young age. No use in crying over spilt milk.

Spending:
Newspaper (for dad): $.50
York Pep Mints: (4) $.46
