My dog has fleas!

September 24th, 2013 at 05:54 pm

I took my dog to the groomers this morning. She looks very cute now, but the groomer told me that she had some fleas. I have never had a flea problem. I bought some stuff to put on her and the other dog, Molly. It was $18 a tube and I had to buy two tubes. So, it has been an expensivve day so far!

The Atlanta Braves won the eastern division in major league baseball yesterday. This year, there was only one day that they were not in first place.
I am proud of them.

dividend check

September 20th, 2013 at 08:58 pm

I get two dividend checks every quarter. The one from Tim Horton came last week and MY wendy's check came today. I do believe in the drip program, but for some reason I am not enrolled in the Wendy's drip. I think cause they have changed several times over the years. Anyway, I will add it to the $20 challenge.

Little sums add up!


September 8th, 2013 at 09:06 pm

Our town is getting a Starbucks. They are putting it inside our Ingles grocery store. The cashier told me that a cup of coffee would cost $6. Could that be true?

Lucky for me, I have never been a coffee drinker. I usually just drink ice water or a small cranberry juice in the mornings!

I had 3 no use gas days this week for a total of $6 to add to the challenge.

Happy Labor day!

September 2nd, 2013 at 10:16 pm

My hear husband did just what he has done every labor day since I have known him, he labored. He went to work as usual. He is home now, but is cutting the grass. We cooked steaks out on the grill last night, so tonight will probably just be something like bacon and eggs.
