I was almost out of beer so I made a trip to Target this morning. They have a 30 pack that used to cost $15, but has now gone up 50 cents. Add the CRV charge onto that and it's still a good price.
I also bought a tube of Bengay that supposedly has a disappearing scent. I'm a little suspicious but I'll try it. My problem is mostly muscular, so the Bengay should help.
Returning home I was driving the speed limit on Folsom Blvd. Several cars behind me pulled into the right lane so they could pass me up. The car immediately in back of me pulled to the right, then swerved around in front on me and crossed over into the next turn lane. The light was red, so he and I had to stop, and he wasn't any better off than if he had just stayed behind me and then pulled to the left into his turning lane. California drivers! They do that all the time on the freeway, pass on the right, pull in front, pass the next guy on the left, then cross 3 or 4 lanes of traffic to get to the exit ramp!
I got my rent and utility bill today and nearly passed out when I saw the cost of gas and electric. I have mostly kept the thermostat on 65, but it's already been turned down to 60 after seeing the bill. I normally turn on my computer in the morning and leave it on until I go to bed at night, but I will start turning it off if I'm going to be out for a few hours during the day. I don't know what else to do, but maybe I'll make it up this summer when I'm gone for several months.
