Called Comcast to get rid of one HD box we don’t really use, SHO, HBO, STARZ and the phone. Learned that doing that would RAISE my bill by $35 a month. Confused, I then called AT&T to disconnect the iPad’s cell service and learned that it would not do anything to my bill at all. Baffled, I walked through the house and disconnected all electrical appliances not in use and turned heat down to 65. Probably, my PECO bill will now triple.
Read 2 James Patterson novels and Evanovich’s Notorious Nineteen. Contemplated writing my own novel because if these two can produce best-sellers anyone can and with minimal effort.
Shopped at Bottom Dollar in KoP for the first time, and while I did not get everything I needed, I got a lot of the kid food even cheaper than Walmart or Wegman’s. Brand names, not expired, and good produce in a clean store. Made me feel very thrifty. I may try extremed couponing once I’ve watched all the past episodes of hoarders and Honey Boo Boo on demand.
Contemplated when Easter became Santa Part II and then went and spent $30 at Five Below on stuff for the “child who has everything”‘s Easter basket. Felt proud that I stuck to a budget. Then my mother told me that it was insane to spend that much on an Easter basket. Sigh.
BTW – What do eggs have to do with Easter? Note to self to google that.
Drove past the gym and did not even contemplate stopping. Briefly thought about going to Verge for some yoga and nixed that, too. Perhaps once I’ve read all the trash fiction available and decided which o f the Duck Dynasty guys is my favorite, I’ll decide to move around and do some healthy things.
I think I can do this for maybe a month, tops, and then I will officially lose my mind.
