I woke up this morning to a sad, sad sight:
Bella my beta fish died last night. :( I had a good cry in the kitchen, which was kind of unexpected. I know she’s ‘just a fish,’ but I would talk to her and play tag with her (through the bowl… she liked it).
Remember when I got her? I rescued her from Wal-Mart.
She was a good fish. :( Very pretty and fun. Bella liked to eat a LOT of food, too. I loved her enthusiasm for kibble.
Rest in the watery toilet grave, Bella. XOXO. I’m going to buy another beta fish when we get back from England (Bella was our third in this apartment).
Just regular banana oatmeal:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup vanilla rice milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: unsweet coconut, flax, and brown sugar
Responsible Spending Challenge Tip
In the last month, I have managed to reduce our electricity/water bill by 1/4! I’m really proud of myself because normally I’m “bad” about turning off the lights.
I think what made the biggest difference in our bill was turning off the air conditioning during the day. I would open the windows and let the cool air in. Obviously, you aren’t totally turn the heat off up North because pipes will freeze, but it’s amazing what a slight adjustment of your thermostat will do!
Sorry about Bella. I love Beta fish-they rock! My husband and I bought a programmable thermostat, and that helped a little bit with our electricity bill.
