Big Update - It's been a while!

April 23rd, 2020 at 10:40 pm

It has been a REALLY long time since I posted anything. Here is what's up:

- In toilet paper tracking news: we are using one roll every 10 days in one bathroom and one roll every 20 days in the other. I am sad that my weird habit is so relevant these days.

- We had a trip planned for March; I was sick, and went to the doctor, so our travel insurance paid for the cancellations. Still waiting for reimbursement.

- We have a trip planned in late May. We'll see what happens; we won't go (no way!!), but if the EU extends their travel ban just two more weeks (currently it's to May 15) then insurance will reimburse this too. We would be flying into the Netherlands. The sad thing is we were going to visit Ds family in the UK, too, and that is on hold for the near future. He talks to his parents daily via Skype.

- I am teaching my group fitness class on Zoom. I am not being paid, but I asked my members to contribute something to the gym owner because we'd all like the gym to be there for us when this is all over. It is a small gym, not a chain. I still have to buy the choreography and insurance, but it only amounts to about $25 per month. I was putting the remainder in my daughter's college fund.

- We received $136 for the airbag settlement fund and a $90 refund from the PT I went to, so I will put this into Fs college fund instead.

- My bank temporarily raised the limit for online deposits for my business so I can remotely deposit my checks. People are still giving me checks, and that means I have to pop into my office to get them. That's ok though since I only share the office with one other person (and I miss him a lot!). He's not often there. I pop in every Wednesday.

- Wednesday is when I pick up my CSA box from our local farmer's market. We decided to sign up because it supports farmers and we knew it was a way to ensure we had some good veggies on hand. This week's box had green garlic, daikon sprouts, Spinach, kale, a cucumber, dried apples, frozen blackberries and super cool looking purple carrots.

- Tuition for my daughter went up, but my husband got a raise, so we're ok.

I think that's about it! I hope you're all doing well!!

    I was just thinking about you a couple of days ago because I made your Asian meatballs in the crockpot! I'm glad you're all well.

    And I also got an airbag settlement. It surprised me because I wasn't sure I'd filled anything out. Mine was $70 I think.

    So nice that you're supporting the gym.

    We use more TP than you do...

    So sad about your Netherlands trip. Hope you do get reimbursed.

    Sorry about the trip being cancelled, but at least you were reimbursed.

    I can't say I know how much tp we use. You are good.

    I got an air bag settlement check too recently, but don't recall how much it was - around the $100 mark I think.
