Our week is just zooming by, or maybe because I haven't slept well the past few nights it just seems that everyone/everything is moving super fast.
The kids are still in school (the school year just won't go away!). This week is non-stop fun school activities, but it will be nice to have a break. Bossy is going to UCONN today for a college tour, and Sassy goes tomorrow. I think this field trip is WAY premature....I get that talking about college and thinking about it is important....but they are finishing SIXTH grade. Do they really need a college tour?
G-man has his last shift at his part time job tomorrow. He wants to burn his work shirts (he doesn't need to return them, we checked). I said that burning that much polyester would be bad for our health. I am sure he will find some way of disposing of them.
The oil company sent the budget plan early this year; it came on Monday to start in September. I don't know if they are anticipating the oil rate to go up and are trying to get people in at a lower rate or what. But the oil rate was the same per gallon as we are currently paying. The monthly charge is within $5 of what we pay now, so as an overall budget item, it is status quo. We had the oil company come in yesterday to give us an estimate on
converting the heating system from oil to gas. Of course he has to work
up the estimate....so we have no real numbers yet. This appointment
was just to give us an idea of what we are in for. Some of the energy companies are offering low interest loans for the conversion....early numbers show that our monthly output of money wouldn't change, and we wouldn't see a monthly savings until that was paid off. None of this is in motion....it is all just information gathering.
I should be home early enough today to call BOA about our mortgage insurance. I think I know the answer based on information that you all so kindly supplied and more research, but I just want to confirm. Based on those answers we will decide how to proceed when the time is right.
The weather got a little warmer....my house is sticky. Not quite time for the A/C units yet, but it is still a little uncomfortable sleeping at night, even with our fan. Plus, it is just gross to touch anything....it is so sticky.
Hope you all are having a good week!!
