Monday Frugal Update

Monday Frugal Update

This week has been interesting. We have been without internet for ten days now. We should have it back tomorrow when the technician comes and figures why the modem doesn’t read the router and the router doesn’t read the modem. I changed the cable three times with no luck.

Monday Frugal Update

Another long, but fun few weeks in the books! We are still adjusting to the new puppy and she to us. Honestly, I can’t wait for her to be outside a lot more.

Monday Frugal Update

Monday Frugal Update

This week has been a snowy, warm, rainy, windy, blizzarding, snowy two weeks. I was home for almost two days the first week because of the snow and wind so I saved some money on gas and, since I have vacation, I will still get paid for those days. We lost power for about nine hours on that Thursday night in addition to the flickering on power for four hours before that. I would like to think I saved money…
