...just kicking along, singing my song...

October 21st, 2009 at 03:46 pm

So….I made an additional deposit of $420 to the house down payment account. I should be able to put another $75 on Monday.

Work is going OK although I am a bit bored at present. I was able to order a new chair and being the state we have to order from a specific company. $760 for a chair is ridiculous but having one that fits me, goes up and down etc is almost priceless.

This week and next are the longest weeks of my life. I have to work 5 days a week and it feels weird to after all the furlough days. I sometimes think that going to full pay, full days is going to be really hard to do after this furlough stuff goes away. But bring on the full pay!

Nothing else really happening right now financially and I still have almost $300 until payday a week from Friday so that is good.

I keep meaning to write a series of posts about how to take a year, frugally and with some careful thought, and prepare your home and supplies for an emergency. I know this industry really well and that storm we had last week (which they likened as a small hurricane) caused many people to scramble for supplies and materials for the loss of power we experienced. (Ironically me as well as I was house sitting and could not find her supply of candles and matches or flashlights. I used the one flash light from my car emergency kit and bought candles the next day to put into my house sitting kit.)

Would you guys be interested in a series of articles around this topic?

    Sure, lay it on us.

    Although I think I'm fairly well supplied, maybe I'm missing a key factor.
