I am staying home today because there is a crew working on taking down our two at risk very tall trees with a bit of pruning of bushes thrown in for good measure. Given this is costing us almost $4,000 I think the pruning is paid for! I do feel sorry for the woodpeckers who have created such a nice cavity in one tree and hope it isn't a nest tree. I am grateful we can hire such a competent tree removal company. Do you think I can count the trees in my decluttering total, LOL?
I've taken a positive step also by moving some of our cash to a higher interest rate CD although I made the mistake of using an online interest calculator and confirmed that we are still earning less than inflation even before taxes are factored into the equation. Sigh. I am grateful for the fact that Hubby took a look and found a better return for us and that the online account opening appears to have gone smoothly.
The upside of all of this is that we have money to do these things. I am properly grateful and also not out doing any spending today LOL.
Check out the blog Help Me for a take on facing up to your money story. Pretty interesting I think.
