fun day with friend

June 10th, 2006 at 09:38 pm

walked with mom for 30 min. It was dark by the time we got back to her house, but it was nice to sneak in at least 30 min.

went to the bank and deposited $75.49 in rebate checks and $15 in loose change. Money to add to my extra fund. My extra fund money is for something fun or special. I recently wiped it out for my Canadian vacation. I'm not sure what I'm saving for now. My short term savings fund is going for new carpet. I still want a good desk/table for my dining room to do bigger jigsaw puzzles on, so maybe I'll earmark it for that.

Went to Big Lots after the bank. Love that store. Go a metal ladle that I've wanted for a long time, but didn't want to spend much for. Paid $1. Got some food products too. Total $5.50. My mother collects strawberry stuff for her kitchen. Saw a really pretty strawberry rug for $5 and 2 strawberry hot pads to put under dishes for $2. Got her both of those and she paid me back. I told her if she didn't like them I would return them, but my experience with Big Lots is if you don't buy it when you see it, too bad, it will be gone.

Next I met my friend at the theater. I haven't seen her since February and we usually get together at least once a month so this was really great. She's adopting a 14 year old niece and it's taking a lot of her time assimilating a teen-ager into the family. She's the second person who's asked me if I've lost weight, so even though I haven't lost alot I must be getting firmer or something for it to show.

We saw the DaVinci code. Very good. Spent $5.50

We went to lunch at Rudy's Diner afterwards. I've never been there before, really cool place and the cheeseburger was great. Spent $9.50

Then we wandered around Target for awhile. I got a new printer for my dad for Father's day on sale for $25.00. I need to get something else for him too, maybe one of the ink cartriges. Ink is ridiculous it's cheaper to buy a new printer than to buy the ink cartriges. The color cartridge was $37.

I also got two Mossimo (sp) t-shirts, which I really like since they print the tag on the shirt instead of having it rub your neck. I always cut tabs off my shirts since I can't stand that neck rub thing. $12 each

I got 5 lbs of walnuts at $4.50/lb, best price I've found and I go through a 1/2 lb a week between breakfast and snacking. I'm not on that side of town that often so I stocked up.

Also bought a book. Total spent $78.83

Got a sample of Olay Complete Defense moisturizer.

Finished reading the library book The Sinmplicity Survival Handbook by Bill Jensen. Non-Fiction. Ok, basically you get everything you're going to get out of the book in the first 30 pages.
