Mortgage Principal, Snowflake and Lunch Out

June 3rd, 2015 at 04:39 pm

So, this is how we handle summer days when I need to get some work done but F doesn't have camp: playdates! Only today was sort of difficult. We had F's friend A over because the mom really needed to do our playdate trade so she could go to a meeting, but I had to teach my weightlifting class, which meant the girls needed to go with me.

I fed them a big snack since the class is at noon and figured we'd eat afterward as well. One of my weightlifters is F's former preschool and Kindergarten teacher (and school owner) N, and she brought her 9-month old, so the girls spent their time entertaining the baby so N could exercise. At the end of class she gave me $20 to take the girls to lunch or a treat or something since they were so great, and she said if I didn't take it, she'd have to get a gift certificate and mail it to me and that would be a big pain in the behind, so I better use it!

So I took the girls to lunch, and they were thrilled!

I got paid at the gym today, too, for April (he's always a month behind) so that's another $72. I used it for a principal payment plus my regular $150. We now owe $54,096 (but that will go down when our regular payment posts on the 7th.

Now I am going to go work on my little project for F which will definitely not be done by her birthday (oh well) - I am making a little general store (1"-1') to house all the cute general store dollhouse stuff that I had when I was a kid; time to pass it on! I will save photos for my next post!

    That was nice of her former teacher!

    I think she is looking for a future babysitter! I have never seen F so comfortable with a baby before, but this baby is different... N was not only her former teacher, but she continues to visit her at the old preschool. We went to her wedding, and we had N and her husband over for dinner (F fell asleep in N's lap), we've been to their house... N is not only one of F's favorite people, she's one of mine too!!

    Looking forward to the general store pics! I've always loved dollhouses.
