Productive weekend

March 29th, 2009 at 06:01 pm

The weather is beautiful and I spent quite productive weekend.

Saturday
1. Went to gym
2. Washed my car
3. Finished laundry
4. Cleaned pool filters

Since DD is in San Jose for leadership conference, DH and I went out and went to Red Lobster.

Today
I met my friend and her sister. Started with morning coffee, window shopping, and lunch at Whole Foods.

I stopped by Target on my way home and bought a box to store holiday wrapping paper. I cleaned out one of my covers that I stored wrapping paper/gift bags/tissues, etc. It looks nice and neat now.

Then, I went grocery shopping. Bel Air had ground beef for .99 per lb. This is the cheapest I've seen. I bought two huge packages of ground beef.

As I'm writing this blog, my roomba is doing its job. I love this guy.

Anyhow, I feel pretty good now as I finished a lot of "to do" list items.

Finally....finished filing tax

I finally finished filing my tax 5 minutes ago. We got $1100 back from fed and owed $750 to the State. Pretty much break even and that's what we wanted.

I'm kind of glad we owe State because CA is so broke. I heard a rumer the state will issue IOU for the state tax return. I don't know if it's true or not, but don't want to take a chance.

It's my spring break this week. I have all kinds of time this weekend. Time to hit the gym!!

Another good week at Walgreens

Walgreens have another free stuff this week.

Last week, I stocked up Garnier hair styling products that were all free. I have enought shampoo and conditioner that will last for few years, but I need some hair styling products because DD goes through them like crazy. I forgot how teenagers cannot have a bad hair day LOL

This week, it is Listerine, Reach floss and toothbrush. Sale price is 3 for $9, and they will give out $6 catalina coupon. There's $3 off when you buy Listerine, Reach toothbrush and floss coupon in today's insert. So,they will be all free.

Free is good : )

Promotion

March 4th, 2009 at 09:01 pm

I got a job I was applying for. I'm so happy.

I love what I do now, but this job will give me better career path. I will be learning new skills, like heavy duty project management, and I'm looking forward to it.

My new boss who interviewed me told me she has several internal candidates so I wasn't really counting on being selected. But I did : )

I also got 10% raise with this promotion. It's not too bad because I just got 4% raise in January.

Money wasn't my main concern, though. My spending habit hasn't changed, and will not change. My main concern was the job itself. I don't mind taking a pay cut if that's what's I really want to do.

On the other hand, it is nice to get a nice raise!!
