My husband drove down to the village to pick up the mail this morning and brought it home, including the flyers. Normally the flyers get thrown out as soon as they are out of the mail box, as the Post Mistress has a big waste bin right by the boxes for that purpose, but today he brought them back with him.
One of the flyers was for satellite internet service offering $100 off the installation cost and $25 less a month than I had been told before. I called and it is available for my district so I am planning to drive to Smithers on Friday to complete the forms and get things rolling. I am really excited.
We are stretching ourselves a little financially for this, as I haven't actually got the money yet, but I can pay it off by Christmas, so we agreed that I should get it, and while we were at it we might as well pop into Canadian Tire and get the ramp he wanted to put his ATV in his truck, and, oh well, we would both enjoy a camera wouldn't we, and it is for sale after all.
Pop goes the bank account, but we have a little money coming available in December and that should cover it all. After all, the little bit we have put aside we had decided, when we retired, was for us to use as we are not leaving it for the kids, divided five ways it really won't go far, so we might as well get a few things we will enjoy now.
I remember my Grandmother would always put things away for what she called "for best" and when she passed away we found all these things in her home that she never used. So sad that she felt that she was not free to use her best things for her own pleasure.
