A Bit of This and That

I have another $20 for Christmas. Yay, Toluna! I'm not qualifying for as many surveys as before but it still is going to make a nice dent in Christmas. I really do think that I will score a totally free Christmas next year. So I'm at $239 for the year. I also have quite a few things purchased already.
Our damned village upped out water and sewer bill by 50%. I hope all that voted to up the water this much get crabs. Our water bill will now be about $75 a month and we live right by Lake Michigan!
And I am  now officially married to an old man. Den pulled in the driveway the other day with the radio blaring. He was listening to AM talk radio. Not sexy!
Have a great day,
SonyaAnn

Yay Toluna is right!
I sent for another $20 check last week.
But this morning, after doing a survey(and getting to the end w/out being dumped out)my list of done surveys says I got dumped and only qualify for a sweepstakes chance....WTF?! I should have 3,000 pts. pending. Grrrr time to write to them.
I was keeping my Toluna $ for myself but my CC points(that give me gift cards)are up to the equivalent of $400 in cards. As long as everyone wants gift cards I'm good to go for Christmas. Somehow I don't think that will be the case tho.lolol
I just checked and I took in $446.23 in rebates so far this year. Too bad I put it ALL toward the grocery budget tho.... If I had kept it separate, paired with the CC pts. I'd have Christmas about done right now! eh

When Den starts wearing white belts and polyester pants, THEN you can take away his sexy card. ;-)

Good for you and Toluna!!! My Christmas fund is at -500 so far... So you're doing better than me.

as for talk radio. That doesn't bother me. Now... the Vicks in the ears... That's old man for sure...
But not a turn off. I'm getting to be an old woman, so it's fine!

Hubby LOVES AM talk radio. But he also loves rock and alternative radio. I think that means he is well rounded, not old.

He will be 55 tomorrow!

A 50% rate hike? That blows. Time to start digging your own well!
And I am serious.....

I had to get used to listening to CBC (aka talk) radio when I met Michael. What's up with that? I want music blaring, rock music with my arm dangling out the window and dice hanging from my mirror...well, maybe not the dice...

sluggy-Nothing pisses me off more than when they dump you. I have written before about this and they said that sometimes it says that you were kicked out but it registered your survey. I think that is mostly BS. But a few times I had points just appear in my account. It is what it is.
You are doing really well with rebates. I have gotten a ton of 50% gift cards so I may make it this year.

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-You have had a ton of stuff going on in your life lately. I don't know how you are doing so well with it all.
And why would you put Vick's in your ears?

SonyaAnn said...

Frances-Sweet knees is going to be 55! He is awesome!!! He will never be old!

SonyaAnn said...

sluggy-Our water bill is a bunch of shit! Well its our water and sewer bill and so it is half shit. I hope the bastards go to jail.

Jane-The windows thump in my smokin' hot minivan from the music being so loud.
