So 2014 is almost half over, and I've blogged a total of seven times this year. My mom sent me a message on FB saying she wants me to write more. So I will try to make mom happy. I'm not real sure why I haven't written much this year. And I cannot promise there will be more frequent posts, but I will try! Here are some things that have been going on around here.
I am one of those people that tend to freak out about rising gas prices. I know there are some people who pay no attention to gas prices. When they need gas, they pull into a nearby station, fill up, and have no idea what the price per gallon was. I am in the opposite camp. I pay very close attention to gas prices, have gas buddy alerts on my phone, and do all I can to save money on gas by using Kroger fuel rewards or our local Speedway Speedy Rewards. The funny thing about this is my commute to work is about 1.5 miles (my husband's commute is even less)! Maybe one day I will not pay attention to gas prices, but I doubt it!
I got the honor of going to our local county circuit court for jury duty yesterday. I had no idea what to expect, and it turned out to be not so bad. I showed up, sat around for a few hours, watched a movie (about jury duty), listened to a judge talk, listened to two lawyers talk, never said one word, then was dismissed. There were about 45 of us in the courtroom, and when the judge said they only needed six jurors, I was hoping the odds would be in my favor. Luckily they were! And I am now exempt for two years which makes me and my employer very happy.
I friend of mine told me about goodwill auctions, and I am obsessed! I have watched about five pair of boots go for really cheap. But somehow I keep forgetting to bid near the end of the auction! After our brutal winter, I decided I need to invest in a really good pair of winter boots. So I hope to find a good pair to buy, and then we will have a mild winter!
Our puppy is still really cute, but he is rotten. He definitely cannot be left alone for a minute. He chews and digs and jumps and chases strangers. We have to wait a couple more months for the electric fence training to begin, so I will keep chasing him down the street in my pajamas. It's such a beautiful sight in the morning!!
I'll try to write more this month, but there are no guarantees, mom!!
