On Thursday, I'm meeting Jo and some other local folks at Union Station. Commuter rail doesn't have a mid-day train anymore, so there's a good chance that instead of meeting them for lunch, I'll meet them for meeting her and have a brief catchup, then let them go on for the day.
I see that the livelongnmarry campaign raised over $50K for gay rights! Wonderful!
Today I got money for the week, took the birdseed box to cardboard recycling at Public Works, dropped DVDs at the post office, and bought groceries. I haven't been eating as many frozen dinners, but they had a sale on for five Marie Callender dinners for $11, which is a really good deal, so I bought those as well as the deli meat (roast beef) for the week's sandwiches. Cheese chunks last for two weeks as does whole wheat bread, it's just the meat I have to get every week. I got other things, too, but cat food and milk don't seem as exciting.
Being more careful about eating out is definitely saving money. I usually alternate getting $100 and $150, with the $150 for the week Lucila is here and the extra $50 for her fee, but two weeks ago and this week, I still had $50 in my wallet from the earlier weeks, so I just got $100. That's a lot of money to save.
