$500 From Sister

April 6th, 2011 at 08:58 am

My sister sent me a check for $500 to pay for our trip to Tampa this weekend. We have a cheer competition so it isn't a pleasure trip. I tried to arrange something for the week prior, but since the car engine thing I had to cancel that trip. Now we are just going for the weekend. I am going to let DD go to Busch Gardens with the friend she is taking. That way they won't be bored hanging out with me and my other sister all day Sunday. We will just leave late on Sunday to get home.

I am kind of slipping in the eating at home department. I ended up ordering Pizza Sunday and last night DD and I went out for Mexican. Was there any reason to? Nope. Other than I just wanted it. I have also stopped every morning this week for a McGriddle from McDonalds. Need to get a grip on these things and stop doing them before it becomes a major problem. It isn't like I don't have groceries at home, because I do. There was hamburger meat that needed to be cooked last night. My daughter did a hamburger helper, but used a frozen meat instead of the one that was taken out and thawed already. Will have to use it for something tonight.

The guy who looked at the house decided that he didn't think he would have the time to do things around the house for the reduced rent. So I offered to increase the rent to $500 and not worry about him doing stuff. He is supposed to call me tonight. I hope he takes it. I would rather not have to go through the rental process with strangers.

    Good move to offer increase rent for no work. You could hire the work with the extra rent! I hope something works out soon. Can it be sold in the condition it is in? House can be sold as is. Of course, you often get less. If it doesn't rent, you might at least meet with a realtor to get an opinion.
