It's quiet again! The noisy quail are gone and I can take peaceful naps on my couch again...if only I had the time to nap. The woman who bought my white quail was sick on Sunday so she came over on Monday night to get them. Turns out there were 2 boys and 1 girl which is why they were fighting and probably why they were so noisy. She didn't mind though. They fit right in with her other quail and she was very happy to have a new color in her collection. I still have my silent golden quail. They barely make any noise at all. I would love to have more quail as long as they are the silent variety.
I've been getting work done on my truck all week. It started out with a simple request to fix my automatic door lock and morphed in to an oil change, spark plugs and possibly brakes. I ran out of cash to pay the guy so I ran over to the closest Chase bank and found only an empty store front. I had to go to the closest bank which was a credit union and they charged me $2.75 for the ATM. Today I checked my Chase account and not only did I pay the ATM fee but Chase charged me another $2 for going out of network! I was appalled so I wrote them an email and I expect them to reimburse me $2 at least. I know they don't have to but I think they will. Now I know that the closest approved ATM is inside of the gas station quick-mart across the street from the now vacant bank.
My attempts to stop spending have failed miserably. I went to the grocery store for dog food yesterday and came out with a $130 bill. I spent $8.50 on grapes! Ok, so I have spent that much on candy before but I could have bought oranges or pears or something cheaper. They are good grapes though. I also spent $40 at the thrift store because I was tired of my wardrobe. I got one pair of non-jean pants and 6 shirts. Now I can stop spending for the rest of March. I can't think of anything else that I need so it shouldn't be a problem...except for all of those birthdays coming up and soil for the garden and those goldfish I wanted...
