This and That, not really financial

April 24th, 2015 at 05:42 pm

Still no call from brother. Although he did text me today and let me know that he knows he's being derelict. Will see if it results in actual plans being finalized this weekend or not. Sigh.

Field trips on Wednesday with the homeschool groups went well. Got to ride a bus through a bus wash twice Big Grin If you've never taken a tour of your local bus station, you really should. Smile

Wednesday also apparently was Admin Asst day. My boss gave me a large glass vase full of chocolate. Does she ever know me!

Thursday night had some excitement in the parking lots around my apartment. A mob of people were shouting and cussing at each other on the lawn near where I park my car. They were at it at least fifteen minutes before moving to the side of the building, and then finally ending up in the parking lot behind my bedroom window. About when the police showed up.

I saw through my peeking out the curtains a guy get patted down by the cop. That's about when I left the window (didn't want to get seen looking out.)

Some of the people stayed out there loudly talking for at least another 15 or 20 minutes. Cursing, talking about tire slashing, knives, guns, kids harrassed at school, gangs ....

Yeah. Not exactly conversation conducive to a restful evening.

My Fitbit stopped working this week (Monday I think.) I sent an email to Fitbit support and never heard back. I decided to try it out again tonight, and lo and behold, it was working again! (This is the new one I only got less than two months ago.)

NE had his six week shoulder evaluation on Thursday. His doctor had xrays taken and said everything looks good. NE has added up all the bills for the surgery - $61,000! Thank goodness for insurance!

He will be starting a new work schedule this coming week - nearly 45 hours a week, 5 nights a week. I don't know how long he'll be able to do 5 nights a week. (He used to do 4 ten or 11 hour shifts per week and that was exhausting enough for him.)

He really needs the money for the medical bills, because his eBay sales have been pretty dismal.

I haven't bought any junkfood this week at all, but I've sure had plenty on a daily basis at work! I've seriously got to stop eating the junk left out "for sharing." I have a bag of Pepitos to snack on, but I think maybe I need something else to keep me away from the "for sharing" temptation.

    Work food is so dangerous! I'll eat anything at the office. I really like the idea of going through a bus wash with a bunch of kids--How fun!

    Work food is dangerous! Our principal buys doughnuts every Friday which is very generous, but very tempting.

    Wow lucky NE had insurance! And I hope you don't have drama like that all the time where you live

    MEC, Rob - Yes, work food is so tempting! I really have to figure out how to say NO!

    VS - There's no way he would've even tried for the surgery without insurance ...

    Me too - of course, Friday night there were two police cars in the lot across from me for at least half an hour .. don't know what that was about.
