Good morning from Morrow, GA. Do I know how to travel to exotic locations, or what?
Today I am getting some routine maintenance done on the M6 at the Mazda dealership. I was thrown a curveball as I arrived to find construction where I normally pull in to drop the car off, but I figured out where to go thanks to the signage. As I am wont to do I arrived early, and was scolded by one of the GMC workers for coming into their space too soon since they didn’t open until 7am. Look, in my world if I arrive for a 7am appointment at 7am then I am late; I guess I have been conditioned by doctors. I’ll be sitting here at the dealership awaiting the service completion, and killing some of that time by writing this blog post.
Even though I was shut out of qualifying for paid surveys yesterday I did make a “killing” with my Kroger shopping. I saved more than $30 on $66 (tax included), nearly 50%, on my purchases! Woot! Some of the savings, $20, were in the form of sale prices and Kroger coupons (including unexpectedly getting a bag of nacho chips for 49Â¢ because it has a WooHoo sticker on it), and $10 was from Ibotta for buying certain brands, nearly all of which I purchase already. Not bad, if I do say so myself.
Last night I went over to Betsy’s for dinner. It was her turn to cook and we had a (meaty) pizza and salad. Since we have no “Top Chef” to watch currently, and we both have watched all four episodes of “Only Murders in the Building” available, we watched the Netflix documentary about the Fyre Festival instead. I had heard about the Fyre Festival fiasco when it happened, but had no idea just how large of a clusterfuck it was. The documentary also reminded me how much I dislike the whole “influencer” culture in which we live.
Thanks to Covid I skipped my routine of eating breakfast at Waffle House across the road from this dealership. ðŸ˜¢ This is fantastic for my waistline and wallet, but I do miss eating there.
When the car is finished, up to ninety minutes from now, I will drive toward home and perhaps make an errand stop or two along the way. Once at home I expect to suit up and do some hard choring in WLF to take advantage of this weather, and to prepare for the choring I will do tomorrow after my 6am trip to Lowe’s. Unlike the Fyre Festival, there will be a Version 2 of WLF. ðŸ˜
Hope your week is going well. I am certain that none of this readership did anything more monumental than saving more than $30 on grocery purchases yesterday… ðŸ˜‰
