An Expensive Day

November 19th, 2014 at 11:32 pm

An expensive day. Ah well. These things happen and that is why we have money in the bank.

- Replaced a tree in front of our house; I did get a discount for paying in cash, however. Total = $400
- Found out from the tree guy that I really need to spray our other trees, which I hate doing, but I think we're close to losing some of them, too. Will be = $250 (but he can do it during Thanksgiving week so we don't need to be around the spray, and our dog will be with us).
- I forgot to defrost something from the freezer, and excuse, excuse, excuse - basically I don't feel like cooking. So I started the rice cooker, and there are peas in the freezer, and I've asked D to pick up a rotisserie chicken on his way home. At least lunch tomorrow is taken care of, too. Cost = $6

I have to remember the two financial victories today:
1. I got a Pinecone check and paid it right into our mortgage principal. $18
2. I deposited the money from D's side work - the school photos - into his business account. Some of will go toward taxes, and some pays for the photos themselves, but the total profit is about $3300. We're thrilled! And the plan: as suggested by some smart person on Saving Advice, we're going to put part toward mortgage principal and part in our vacation fund.
