April 21st, 2005 at 06:55 am

cannot eat anymore til after my ct scan at 1 so that will keep me away from snack area. got to balance the checkbook tonite and make sure lia has enough for her sf trip. went and got three books from library last nite.
going to take the one on simple living in purse as i am sure i will be waiting at hospital some times. will get some tea for breaks at work and walk at lunches again. trim the budget and my waist maybe. time for work

i have screwed up

April 20th, 2005 at 07:56 pm

i cannot believe i have completely screwed up my budget and got into debt this quick! well i have gotten out before, this will just be a little more challenging. going to get going and read the get out of debt tips, redo the budget and get back up there again. just as long as i do not get more behind i should be out of this temporary pit in ummmmmmmmmmm six months??? i know i can do it - and i think keeping the journal is going to help.
maybe will not entertain you much, but guess what? this is for me and at least for the next six months, my entertainment will be coming from the library
so that is where i am off to right now

back from vacation

April 18th, 2005 at 03:53 pm

i am back from vacation with my daughter and 6 of my grandkids. was great, we spent too much money, specially on food, but i feel great about it. husband and three boys painted the inside of our little house while i was gone with the little ones. not the colors i wanted, and since it was their first time a few flaws---but i love the ugly fake paneling is gone!. live in a older manufactured home that needs a lot of love and work. we are doing it a little at a time and learning by our mistakes. the paint was free, got it from a recycling program and the labor was given by my husband and older boys. only paid for the pans, rollers and brushes. will take me awhile to get the house put back together--

April 4th, 2005 at 06:19 am

have already messed up the budget and week just started. rd had to go to the emergency room yesterday and the script cost $102. he has no insurance being self employed anyway makes little money. have vacation coming up next week and not even sure if will have gas money to get to the resort, let alone anything to spend. hopefully will have the few dollars from towels and dog duty. that will be $70, should get me there and back. and about $100 for food- will have to do. the girls are supposed to provide own food for family, we will see.
m made me a p&b sandwich and i have a can of soup so lunch for day and bringing an orange for lunch. do not have to worry about the snack bar, have nothing to spend.
going to be a good day
