I had an interesting day at work. I have been asked to start working 50 a week so I can get lots of programming done quickly. I spent most of the afternoon in a meeting where we continue to work out technical details. It is really nice working for a company that is taking the necessary time and effort to plan the technical details of the application before I get started on the core programming.
To get a 10 hour work day in, I’m going to stop walking in the morning and get to work an hour earlier and then work until 5:30 – 6:00pm….
On the way home this evening I did some shopping at Goodwill and then Super Walmart for groceries. The Goodwill store was actually nice for a thrift shop. I purchased some music CD’s, a new shirt and a pair of swim shorts. At Walmart I managed to spend $125.00 on groceries. John is eating lunch at home so I wanted to make sure he had things that he can easily heat up and eat (hot pockets, mini pizza’s and pop-tarts). I don’t want to have to go grocery shopping for at least 2 weeks. I made it to the motor home at 7:10pm….
Last weekend I connected the “Kill-A-Watt” meter to the combo washer/dryer to see how much power it used to wash and dry a load of wash. It used 1.42 Kilowatt Hours at 10 cents per Kilowatt for a cost of $.14 cents. I takes 4 loads of wash in the motor home to equal one load in a a regular washer. The camp ground charges $1.50 per washer load and $1.00 for 40 minutes of drying time. It is cheaper to use the washer/dryer in the RV, but my dress pants don’t come out very nice and I’m always doing laundry….
We both have booked airline tickets so we can fly home to Illinois and Wisconsin for Christmas. We will be leaving on Dec. 23rd and coming back on Dec. 26th. I fly from Tampa, FL to Atlanta, GA and then Atlanta, GA to Moline, IL. On the way home I fly from Moline, IL to Atlanta, Ga, then Atlanta, GA to Tallahassee, FL and then Tallahassee, FL to Tampa, FL. I plan on purchasing all of my gifts online this year and have them shipped direct to my parents house.
