some updates

February 24th, 2009 at 03:56 am

Random updates:
- my sister 'ran away' from home (meaning, she walked to our place and stayed over) last night. all is fine now apparently. i think it has more to do with her being a teenager than my parents this time lol.
- Went to the bank and we are now set up with internet banking and Life Insurance (accident, trauma, illness AND death cover!) Currently at $61.35 a month, but we are going to make an appointment later on to see if we can get it reduced a bit. It's standard cover, and because neither of us work in a high risk job we might be able to get it tailored to our occupations and save a bit extra.
- Went and got the ultra sound on my leg but I won't know the results til I go to the doctors. Hopefully I will make an appointment this week or next.
- I have been going well on some of my Feb goals and not so well on others. Atleast SOME are going well..
- I have realised I MUST stop using the internet on my phone because it is costing me a lot of money! I got a $12 charge for last month. *sigh* sometimes you just HAVE to look something up on google though, you know?
- A friend of a friend is bugging me to join a bike class at her gym. Not only do I HATE gyms, I have my own exercise bike. When I made an excuse about money, she said 'classes are only $4'. I was like umm... yeah... well... (I am not eager to show the extent of my cheapness...)
- DF made dinner on Sunday night! He made himself a roast lamb and roast veges, steamed side veges and heated up a tofu/bean/tomato mix for me. He also did half of the dishes. ALSO he did the dishes for me last night too because I burnt my hand at work. Not badly, but badly enough for me to whinge about it!
- Speaking of dishes, we have come up with a plan: DF will do the dishes once a week, and cook once a week. Then it means I will only nag him once a week. Smile I don't mind cooking dinner, and I have no idea how to use a lawn mower/whippersnipper/edger so I'd say that's fairly even. We share the laundry evenly and I don't mind the rest of the housework.
- Grocery expenses have been high this month which is a bit of a bummer, though I'm not really sure why. I will have to work on reducing the costs of our meals.

Well, that's all my updates for now. To end on this post, I will leave you with a picture of a tattoo that I got over a year ago:

    Here in the states you can text message a question to google (466453) and they will answer your text with the info. would be a lot cheaper if you have a text msging plan.

    does google australia have something like that?

  3. Carolina Bound Says:

    If classes are only $4, well, then if you exercise the recommended minimum of three times a week, that's about $48 a month, or $576 a year! I don't think that's cheap.

    Nice list! A friend is still trying to convince me to join a gym with him. I don't want to.

    My husband cooks and I do the dishes. It works out well. He also does the outside stuff so I keep the inside of the house clean(vacuum, dusted, mopped, etc). It is a fair trade off since I have no desire to be outside in 100 degree weather! We each do our own laundry.

    debtfreeme: i dont know if google have something like that here but i have never heard of it. we dont really have text messaging plans here either: mobile phones charges are different, we only pay to send text messages and not recieve them. usually most plans are just a monthly fee with a certain amount of money you are able to spend (mine is $49 a month with $300 of calls and messages).
