Work Fundraiser, Food, and More

June 23rd, 2017 at 04:52 am

Today my office is doing a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I'm donating $10 in addition to the $10 I've already 'donated' to the office raffles. It's all a good cause and one of the raffle prizes is a covered parking spot (the heat gets a little brutal here).

Last night, I finally got back to cooking. Our weekdays have been so hectic that I didn't make DH's lunch twice this week. I've also been putting off using up the rice, veggie, and fruit tray leftovers from our Father's Day bbq. Last night, I threw all the veggies and some chopped up jalapeno sausage into a sort of gumbo/soup dish. It actually turned out really yummy. I'm going to use the fruit to make smoothies tomorrow morning. I want to start prepping on the weekends again because that makes the week go a lot smoother.

I made a $275 payment to my Capital One Card yesterday. I have another $175 or so to add to that today that I need to put into the bank.

I also have to take my car into the shop tonight to be worked on tomorrow. I'm at 90k miles. It's making a grinding noise that originally only happened when I first accelerated and was hardly noticeable, but has gotten considerably worse (both louder and more frequent). I really hope it's not a super expensive fix.

    I hope that car repair isn't too expensive either!

    I hope you win that covered parking spot! I don't like the sound of you car grinding anything. It's good you are getting it looked at and hopefully the repair doesn't cost more than you can easily manage.

    Your meal sounded great...nothing like vegetables!
