A few things

February 17th, 2015 at 06:54 pm

(1) I forgot to mention yesterday that I broke my phone. Frown I kneeled on it in the middle of the night while climbing into bed and I guess the pressure ruined the screen. It would have been a pricy fix. Luckily, we still had DH's old phone (same type as mine) from when he upgraded for Christmas. After a quick stop at the mall store, they switched the sim cards and now I have an identical working phone again.

(2) Cashed out $28.56 in Chase rewards. The home improvement fund is now up to $2827.87. I hope to start spending some of it here pretty soon. First up are some plumbing repairs/upgrades we've been waiting on.

(3) We did end up having a snow day today, so we didn't have childcare. DH needed to be into work today for an event, including a work dinner out. I had more flexibility in my schedule, so I have been home with the boys all day. I am exhausted, but both boys are asleep and DH is bringing me dessert from his dinner. Since they are going to a fancy place, I expect it'll be pretty good! Smile

(4) Now I'm going to update our variable spending in my Money program to see how it's going so far this month. Fingers crossed! I feel like we're spending less than last month, but my feelings aren't a reliable barometer for the amount of money spent!

Did anyone else have a snow day today?

    Glad you had a new phone on hand!
    No snow day here...no snow. Maybe a delay tomorrow based on the cold temperatures.

    Have a look on CraigsList to see if there are secondary repair outlets that replace the screen from same model that quit working for other faults. You can usually sell your phone on-line or donate it to one of the charities for a tax deduction

    We had some snow flurries here today, but none stuck.

    Too bad about the phone, but good thing you had a backup!
