Productive weekend

March 29th, 2009 at 06:01 pm

The weather is beautiful and I spent quite productive weekend.

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.

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 : )

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!!
