Unrelated short thoughts

* We got our annual update from the mortgage, apparently taxes are going up. We have a choice as always to pay a lump sum now and keep the payment the same or pay more over the next 12 months. Usually I pay upfront, but this time we will let the mortgage go up. We have the money in savings now, but since there is no promise of income anytime soon, we might as well leave spare in the savings and take our time draining it.

** Yesterday was another day out of the house with no eating out. We packed some snacks, and a late lunch and more snacks before coming home to a late dinner. The day at the local science center even had free parking due to a new exhibit opening. The kids loved it, and even though we were dog tired by the end, it was a good day.
Bringing my Feb total up to 12 points.

***I was asked to be the 'Daisy coordinator' next fall for the local GS council. On the one hand that is a relatively easy job...on the other, I don't need another volunteer job!

****Speaking of GS, apparently the council lady in charge (dunno her official title) has only one computer with two teen kids! Can you imagine only one computer? I know plenty of folk manage, but.....I can't! (or rather I am REALLY grateful I don't have to!)

    Did you pack the snacks and lunch just for the challenge? If so, I'm totally impressed!

    Well in truth being out of work means a day out should have all packed food...but being part of the challenge helps when you know it is 'only' a couple bucks to supplement the packed with some fries.
