Today has been a nice, productive little Sunday!
Even though it was 12:00 when we met, I still call it brunch since I hadn’t eaten a full breakfast yet and I can NOT make my first meal of the day anything but breakfast.
Since today is the first day of spring, and the sun was shining, I figured an iced coffee was in order. Today’s flavor of choice was “Jamaican Me Crazy” with a little skim milk. Always a favorite!
For my “brunch,” I ordered the Breakfast Wrap, which is 2 eggs, provolone, ham and salsa in a flour tortilla.
I asked for light on the cheese, which they did an excellent job of, but I also ordered egg whites, which they apparently forgot about. Ohh well, it was still tasty!
I was also in the mood for a little somethin’ sweet, so I decided to add a side of fresh fruit.
The fruit bowl ended up being quite filling so I ate half of my wrap and brought the other half home…which was consumed about two hours later.
The rest of the afternoon consisted of some household duties, including laundry, paying bills, and bonfires.
Yes, that’s what Jay and I do when we clean out all of our old files and have stacks of paper statements that pile up to our knees…we burn them. ‘Cuz that’s how we roll.
Never Underestimate the Power of a Phone Call
While I was taking care of paying some bills this afternoon (I’m the money handler in this house) I happened to be checking the web banking for one of our accounts when I realized I made a big oops.
Basically, I thought there was more money in our account than there really was and ended up being slapped with a big ‘ol $37.00 insufficient funds fee.
However, I figured I’d give our bank a call and see if there was anything they could do to help me out. I explained (verrrry kindly!) to the customer service representative that we are always very responsible for making sure that our account is in good standing and happened to have a mix-up. After being put on hold for a few minutes, she came back to tell me that she reviewed our account and allowed us a full refund for the fee!
Lesson learned? It never hurts to ask! The worst they can say is “no,” right?
I immediately made sure to let Jay know just how lucky he is to have such a “Budget Savvy Wife.”
I think he must have been super happy with me, because he happily took care of tonight’s dinner all on his own. This made me very, very happy!
On Friday, we ended up picking up a “Take & Bake Pizza for 2” at Price Chopper, expecting to cook it up while our friends were here watching basketball. Well, it never made it out, so we decided to save it for tonight.
The pizza itself was actually just a simple cheese pizza, but Jay sautéed up some peppers & onions and grilled a small chicken breast to jazz it up.
The toppings definitely made the pizza…it was great!
To round out the meal, we had a couple simple salads.
And enjoyed them, once again, in the living room at the coffee table.
Still no luck on that kitchen table shopping! Grrrrr…
Time to relax and unwind before it’s back to the work week tomorrow!
Question for the Day:
How are you “budget savvy?”
