This past week has not been so good. We had forgotten that our car tags/taxes payment is due by the end of September, but we never even received a bill from the county for it so we forgot about it. We did get it paid on Monday, though, and surprisingly, with no late fee. I have put a reminder on my calendar for this in the future, because it is our responsibility to remember. The amount we had to pay was only $66.63, but the checking account was already thin so that did not do it any favors. My chin is still up. The turkeys will not get me down.
I am using a mostly use-it-up approach on meals this week.
1) leftover white chili - 1 meal for me
