Since we were in the city, I had DD stop at Price Rite for a few items: 3 gallons milk, apples, bananas, large tub baby salad greens, onions, hotdog buns, 2 pkgs hamburger buns, dill weed. $21.50 cash spent.
No gas expenses, since I can't drive.
Another oil delivery, naturally, prices rose, temps are dropping, the wood stove isn't being used as I am the only one who knows how to operate it, and if there was an issue, I'd be physically unable to work the stove. A few more weeks, and that may/should change.
Kids helping with daily chores, cooking, cleaning. I am starting to do a bit more, yet remain quite limited. This will improve over time. My therapist already noted improvement from Tues to Th this week, in my range of motion.
Additional bills came in: cell phone, cable, plow bill from January, CSA membership. Rent and CC are coming up next week.
College boy needed a hand up on a bill, I took care of it, but we signed a contract from the bank of mom. No interest, but definitely a loan, not a gift.
Food is from home, we've taken advantage of my prepared ahead of time "frozen assets." Working with DD's schedule, either she prepares my food, or we have a leftover plate set up, which I can heat up. Grocery list is building, but purchases are limited to essentials.
This week's freebies: due to 2 snow days, I now have 2 additional paid leave days to apply towards March, when I know I will run out.
