My scooter broke this week. This meant I had to walk much more than I’m supposed to which has resulted in me being in a lot of pain. The scooter new costs $1500 and I was panicking a bit but after a bit of research, I don’t believe we will have to pay that unless we come to a worst case scenario. Fortunately, I called a welder and he was able to weld the frame together. Now I just have to hope it stays together until I can go through the process of getting the doctor to prescribe one for me so the insurance will pay for it.
It’s been a busy weekend. Saturday Ken and I ran errands. We went to a variety of different places including a craft store (Ken’s least favorite place to go). I got the three things I needed for the three projects I wanted to do and saved $31. I love coupons.
It was a practical day. I spent time paying bills, working on budget, running errands and so on. Nothing momentous happened but stuff got done. I worked on crocheting last night but was tired. I spent a bit of time on the phone with my daughters. This was the best part of the day.
Today has been just as productive. I made a new breakfast thing to take this week. I also made lunch for today and for the rest of the week. Ken did the shopping and saved $22 in coupons. I’ve been working on the computer a good portion of the day. It’s writing related things but not writing. I also worked on two crochet projects. I got two done so I will be able to write up the one pattern. The other is just making dish towel with terry cloth and crocheting around the edges. I made one. Ken is supposed to try it to see if he likes it. I’m hoping they work well so we don’t have to buy the one from the store. I like them better but I never know whether Ken will or not. The dishtowel is just under 2′ square so you can dry those bigger dishes.
I published a short story today. Journeys is a about lifelong friends who come together for a weekend away from family. The two women share their frustrations and joys of being mothers. The short story is only 99 cents and is available on Amazon and Smashwords. http://eileentroemel.weebly.com/short-stories.html
