#307: baby steps

Tiny, tiny baby steps, a few at a time.

Today I took my tax refund check and started a savings account. It wasn't much, but it's a start. Hopefully there will be a good chunk saved up when the time comes.

I also unloaded some more unnecessary and unused things. I packed a small box with anime VCR tapes and mailed them to a friend who still collects that kind of thing (I no longer have a VCR, and anyway most of this stuff you can get on DVD now anyway.) One of the tapes got a little dinged up in transit, but the packaging was OK, which is what I was really sending them for anyway. I need to find some "forever homes" for some of my stuffed animals now--they're raccoons, so if you know anyone who collects them, let me know. My only request is that they not be used as dog toys (some of them are "rescues" from Walmart, too cute to let someone let their dog chew on it!), otherwise I'd of taken them to Goodwill and be done with it.

I think I may have waited too long to attempt to plant my tomato seedlings. They pretty much wilted as soon as I had them planted in the buckets outside. I guess I will have to go for the pre-sprouted ones again, if I expect to get any 'maters this season.

At the moment, it is raining. I guess I shouldn't complain as it's washing some of the pollen out of the air (my car has gone from red to yellow to red again!) But it just makes me all the more antsy for it to warm up and stay warm, thankyouverymuch. It's warmer than it has been, but not enough for shorts. Not that that is a bad thing, I simply haven't got the legs for that any more..... but around the house will be nice. :)

Bok! bok bok bok!
Easter was fairly quiet. I was (surprisingly) off that day, so Dent and I got semi-dooded up and went (where else?) to Walmart, since the weather was nice and if we'd stayed at home we'd of ended up napping all day. The candy was pretty well picked over (not counting what the employees were starting to pack back up to send back), but I did manage to find a Cadbury bunny someone'd  hid in the back of one shelf. He clucks when you squeeze him.
