Good and Bad

September 10th, 2015 at 06:32 pm

The bad first:
- I had to buy a drill bit today in order to hang my yoga swing (this is so I can hang upside down and get traction for my lower back pain; it works pretty well, and I guess if I can cut down on the PT it will save me money). Also had to buy two climbing straps because the yoga swing did not come with extenders (ugh! I did an Amazon review and noted the things people will need to buy to mount the swing, since I had no idea). With the bicycle hooks I bought the other day to screw it into our garage beams, I probably spent about $20 extra on the swing.

Also bad:
- Need to bring something to a soccer potluck party tomorrow, but we'll be going right from F's school Country Fair where I'll be volunteering from about 2 pm on... I think I just have to buy some tubs of cookies at Trader Joe's... more expensive than baking something or making something, but they won't go bad in the car.

But this is good:
- Had a great PT appt. today and my back feels so much better, plus she taught me how to fix things myself a little bit if my back starts to hurt in between.

And also good:
- We had a nice frugal dinner of pasta with butter and pecorino romano plus sauteed courgettes with a little garlic.

And even more good:
I got $70 from the gym, and took it right to the bank so now we owe $48,064 on our mortgage. I am not sure how much our house is actually worth... during the recession they said about $500k, but things have picked up a lot since then.

    Would a slant board help? I used to lie (head down) on a slanted well cover in my back yard, and it was great!

    It might help... but the yoga swing is up and running! And takes up very little space; it's in the garage. Hope it won't be too cold in the winter to use it! I'll just wear a puffy coat!

    I bought some wall shelves without realizing that I'm going to have to drill holes in order to hang them ... have the drill, just not the needed drill bit.

    Hope the yoga swing helps your back!

    You're so close to that mortgage payoff! Especially impressive given your property values. Where I'm from you can still buy a nice family house with a yard and decent school district for less than $200,000!
