well, that was fast

IRP has gone home. We are all very grateful for the successful surgery and quick recovery (at least enough to go home). Her pain is under control. She will probably miss three weeks of work. Thanks for your continuing prayers!~~TSG

a really good day

IRP’s surgery went very well. She is in a room, her pain is a 2-3 and she is getting to eat solid food. A big thank you to all who prayed and sent well-wishes!

This week, I picked up $2.45  walking around the campus. Into the Found Money Fund with it. The Found Money Fund is a box made by FMP in which I keep the change I find. Usually, I save it all year and then spend it on Black Friday. We are up to  $6.62  so far this year.

Finally, when I went out to get the mail, there was a HUGE package on the front step. Inside was a prize from Woman’s World; an Italian cooking set with an All Clad spaghetti pot/strainer insert, an All Clad sauce pan, three Prego sauces, a spiral slicer, a collapsible strainer and a walnut spaghetti server. FMP really loves All Clad and we’ve been buying it piece by piece. This really ups our game. Thank you Woman’s World!!!

in which FMP joins the scheme

I found $1.08 recently around campus. Yesterday, FMP used his day off to run some errands for his boss and brought in $100. Thank you, dear!

another month

Today, I made the first payment on what is left of CPI’s A&M bill after financial aid. Over $150 of it came from The Scheme, either eBay sales or scrapping. Not that they would kick him out at once, but I feel good knowing he doesn’t have to worry about it for another month. Friday, I found $.50 and today $.51. When I was young, people used to tell me not to use “fifty-cent” words. They thought I should not use words that might make others insecure because I was smart enough to know what they meant. I find it funny that I can now buy my son two of them.~~TSG

when it rains…

Today, IRP, CPI’s older sister called. She will need surgery the 10th of February to repair a hernia caused by the surgeries to correct a birth defect that you will find chronicled earlier in this blog. We had hoped to give the issue a little more time to work itself out, but IRP turns 26 in May and will have to leave the insurance provided by my job. I don’t want her to have to pay for surgery either out-of-pocket or with a plan that will probably not be as good as mine. Please pray that all will go well. Also, I am going to look into the possibility of her staying on my plan until she can get her own. Please pray that I will find favor with HR and the law in this matter.

As for The Scheme, I found $.67 today either on the floor or in vending machine coin return slots. I am really getting a lot of stretches in amassing money this way.~~TSG
