1) Washer. The part arrived yesterday. The repair guy can't come until 9/11. So now we wait.
2) Hot Water. G-man reset the controller, and all seems better now. Hoping it was just a fluke thing, but we both know that if this problem starts happening on a more regular basis....more intervention may be needed.
3) Closet. G-man hasn't touched it since Tuesday. I am hoping tomorrow he will get another coat of spackle on, and MAYBE by Saturday we can repaint the area. Even if that is the case....it will be 9/11 before he will be able to reinstall things. Meanwhile, it is oh so much fun digging through piles to find what you need.
In other rambling items.....
Budget. This weekend I will work on the budget. The realization that there are items that are are lacking on the budget means moving things around. I am also going to call Verizon and see if the "share everything" plan will help us save anything (we are low data users, and most places we are have WiFi).
I am trying to keep in mind that our taxes will probably change in February or March. Since we adjusted our taxes based on what we have paid this year, I have a feeling we have some "extra" coming out right now to make up for the past months. Once we do our taxes, we will have a better idea of what needs to come out (and will have 10 months to adjust for it, not 5). So the budget will be a 6-month one...with reevaluation at the end.
Catch-up. G-man gets 3 paychecks in October, so I am planning on using the majority of the "extra" check to play catch-up on the CC that got nasty this past month. We have "half" our mortgage payment direct deposited into our savings account per paycheck, so by default...we will have 3 of those. We don't use the grace period for our mortgage, so we can use it as soon we get it. And that bad boy is becoming a payment as soon as it hits.
Home Office. Needs some TLC. I am still not happy with it's function. I would like to put a line item in the budget to save up for the materials I need to make this work. I realize it will be a VERY small line item, but at least it will give me hope that I will get there. I am also planning on putting the materials on my "Christmas" list. Maybe a husband or child will "gift" me some!! G-man always wants me to have things that are more "just for me" but I really want this pick me up for my office area. I spend so much time working on the computer (between PTA, work I bring home, researching things....oh yeah, and finances!), I want a space that really jazzes me. I started back in February with my makeover, but it hasn't gone much further.
Bossy's room. I still owe you all pictures!!! Let me get the stupid closet fixed, and then I will reveal!
Did I miss anything????
