Made a little extra today and I had to turn the heat back on today, oh well....

We've been enjoying some mild weather down here lately so I've had the heat turned off since Friday. Well, when I got home today, the house was a bit chilly so I guess the good times are over. Still my heat bill should be a bit lower than I'd planned for thanks to our brief spring fling.

I did a long-term care assessment for the insurance co. today for a little bit of extra cash. I lucked out, my client was a very pleasant 80+ year old lady in good health. She was on only two maintenance meds! It was a nice break from the folks with two pages of medications and a health history so involved they can't remember it all. We should all be so lucky!

I won, I won, I won!!

I participated in the Universal Studios promotion this weekend and I found out today that I won a free ticket to Universal. This is so great because we are taking the kids to Orlando for spring break this year and I am on a mission to reduce the costs of this trip. So far, I also have an additional free ticket I got when I cashed in my MyCokeRewards points. Since the cost to get into Universal is $73 then I have saved $146 on the cost of tickets already. Additionally, I got a $100 restaurant.com gift card over the weekend for signing up for some identity theft protection with a free 30-day trial. The best thing about this trip is going to be seeing how much we can do for free.
