My Day Off Wasn't Really a Day Off

Does anyone else ever take a day off yet it turns into the busiest day ever? Yesterday I actually worked from home to take a notary class online. In between, I was doing several other things that had piled up for awhile which included lots of calling, viewing a townhouse, dyeing my hair by myself, walking the dog, and going to the gym.

I took an amazing turbo kick class at the gym at 8:30am since I never get the chance to take it. The instructor was fantastic and so full of energy! I wish I could go to her class every Monday but I don't know how well that would work. If I came in around 10am, I'd have to stay until 6pm which doesn't sound that fun. Otherwise I'd come in earlier and take my lunch from 8:30-9:30am. Still thinking about it though since I'm not sure I can wake up early on Mondays!

I also called Citibank to transfer my driver's edge rebates to Thank You points. It sucks that you have to do it this way (over the phone) because I am betting that a lot of people are going to forget to call by March 1st, 2012 and thus, lose all of their driver's edge rebates. I had no idea just how many rebates I accumulated and it turns out I had over 9,000 (I'd had this card for the past 6 years). It's crazy to me that they only send you an email to call them to transfer your rebates. It was pretty painless to do but I have been putting this off for awhile.

Next up, I called Chase because I got denied when I applied for a Freedom card. I have the Sapphire Preferred which requires a better credit score so I called to complain. I'm guessing that they know I pay my credit card off each month without paying interest so maybe they didn't want me to reap more rewards? I also have a checking and savings account with them so I was sure that I'd be able to get reconsidered. After 10 minutes of being transferred and talking to 3 different people, I was able to get approved for the card! So now I'll be able to use my credit cards to my liking and reap the most benefits. Read about my plan here.

I also went to check out a townhouse with our realtor yesterday. BF and I both fell in love with the place and I was so happy to see everything we wanted. When I got to the last room, I saw a huge crack in the wall. It went from corner to corner and horizontally across one whole wall. It could be a structural problem so we're waiting to hear back from our realtor. We probably won't be getting the place. I'm pretty sick of this process but I know it takes a lot of patience so we'll keep plowing along.

Sorry this post was everywhere..it feels like a Monday to me! I'm pretty sure the BF and I won't be doing anything tonight. We'll probably continue on with our The Walking Dead and Supernatural marathons. I'm really enjoying my Hulu+ and Netflix trials right now! We use the PS3 to watch shows on our flat screen TV and it's awesome!

Anyone have any Valentine's day plans? Also does anyone have any last minute gift ideas I can get my BF? I am the world's worst GF, I didn't get him a gift!

Eric and I don't do gifts. Make a dessert and then you both get to enjoy it!

I made Rambo a candy pail. It was frugal and cute.

PS I have days off where I end up cramming everything in.

A hug, a kiss, an I love you and some cuddling while watching TV for the rest of the night.

You did a lot today, I hate when my off days get busy.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

It sounds like a busy but productive day! Sometimes, even though those days can be crazy, I feel SO good after getting everything done.

I have class tonight, so the boy and I are celebrating tomorrow after a meeting that I have. Life is hectic.
