A Few Quick Updates

by

There’s a few updates to give all of you on things that didn’t necessarily warrant a whole post on each one. So, I decided to write one post with all of the updates.

I never did find the title to our truck so we could get rid of it. We ended up ordering a new one from the Secretary of State at a cost of $10. We should get it in the mail in 7-10 days. There was a way to get it the same day (at a cost of $15), but we would have to drive over two hours away to do it. So, we’ll wait for the mail.

My camera that fell into Lake Superior is working now. I left it in our hot car over the summer and that might have helped to dry it out because it is functional now. Thank you to those who told me to give it some time. We saved some money by not going out and buying a new one.

We may have had to turn on our heat early this year, but we didn’t have to leave it on for long. After some cold days, we had a heat wave of sorts. It’s been raining a lot, but it has been warm.

Speaking of heat, moving my office has been very nice. Getting the sun in my office in the morning is refreshing and helps to bring the outside in the house a little bit. With working at home, sometimes you feel a little stir crazy because you don’t go anywhere. The sun is helping to negate those feelings.

That’s all I can think of at the moment. If there’s something I haven’t updated everyone on and you are curious about it, please feel free to refresh my memory in the comments.

    WOW I can’t even imagine having the heat on right now! we live in texas and still in the 80’s and 90’s. Geez, who likes cold weather??

    Our heater is electric and our utility bills in the winter here are 60-70.

    In the summer our bill runs 180 though ;(

    I love Texas and the south, you can buy 3000 sq houses here for 150!!

    Next time you get stir crazy working at home, think about this: I leave at 7 am and get home at 7 pm to work an 8 hour day (actually 9 cause I sit at my desk at lunch). Commuting SUCKS!

    It’s sweltering hot over here in the DC area. I’m still walking around in shorts with my air condition on. Strangest October in a long time.

    I’ve had a home office since 1980. Pre children I took a two hour walk everyday to get out of the house. During pre school we had a babysitter (a teen) twice a week who sat with the kids while I ran errands, and when the kids were older I ran errands while they took piano lessons, violin or soccer practice. Now (almost an empty nester for good) I go to Trader Joes, the post office and spend a lot of time slicing fruits and vegetables. If a home office task is just too much you’ll find me cleaning the stove and cutting vegetables. Our gasoline bill is about $50 a month tops and we can drive our 1999 Taurus. We gave a new car to our recent graduate from BU (no we did NOT pay cash) and our 2004 Corolla to our Stanford senior. Can you guess who is economizing? Yes, me!

So, what do you think ?
