This and That

So I suppose you can tell that there's not a lot going on this week with my lack of posting and all, but there are a few odds and ends that I can share.

My Aunt gave us a chain saw to cut up some firewood we have (giant wood that needs to be sawed before axed) however; it doesn't work right. My dad had a look at in and figures it needs a new diaphragm (a piece in the carburetor). So, yesterday I bought a carb kit and fuel filter. That combined with chainsaw oil and a five gallon jerry can cost about $45 - I thought it would be way more, so pretty pleased about that.

hmmm..What else is new?

I haven't been making my lunch as often as we should - this always seems to get dropped off in favor of sleeping in - need to find a way to want to wake up earlier. Though this morning I woke up with a headache and a sore throat....which made me not want to wake up....lol

I requested to have 37.50 hours of banked time paid out on my April 30, 2010 pay yesterday - and then I'll get the remaining 15 hours paid out on my following pay if I need the $ for anything. The extra week of hours should pay off the rest of my Canada Student Loan (sitting at about $400 right now) and put a big dent in my Christmas Funds.

Hope you are all having a great week!
