another free movie weekend

March 31st, 2006 at 07:27 pm

walked with mom for 55 min

DirectTV has a free Showtime movie weekend. So far there hasn't been anything I want to see. It seems like they've had a lot of free movie weekends lately.

My goals for March were:

1. Pre-pay mortgage by $2000.00. I increased this because I am expecting my computer rebates and tax returns this month so should be able to come up with another $500.


2. Walk 20 times for at least 35 min


3. Spend $400 or less for household items. Since I've stayed under $450 for the last 2 months, I'm lowering this goal.

Almost. Spent $413.96

Groceries - 123.06
Fast Food - 44.20
Restaurants - 54.59
Nieces - 32.95
Books - 13.17
Gas - 43.7
HBAs - 46.53
Entertainment - 17.97
Other - 32.79

4. Lose 5 lbs. - This is a financial goal as well as a health goal, since it will save me money.

Only lost 3 lbs, but it's progress.

My net worth increased by 3%

Got the Travel Cancellation insurance policy today. Spent $90 for this.

Finished reading my book Partnership by Anne McCaffrey and Margaret Ball. Sci/Fi. Ok

    I envy all your reading time!!! I'm hoping to increase my reading for pleasure after I quit my fulltime job in June. One of my greatest pleasures & it's free. Can't beat that!

    From what I've seen on Showtime's schedule thus far they've got the following movies that look O.K.:

    Walking Tall
    Open Water
    Mean Girls
    Cody Banks 2

    Didn't see much else that I hadn't seen the last time they had a free Showtime weekend a few months back.

    Yay on your weight loss! I'm inspired by your walking goals. Now that our snow and ice have melted, I'll be out 'walking the streets' of my little town. Another benefit of walking for me is the stress relief and clearing of my mind. Simple, easy and cheap - almost too good to be true. Good luck in April!
