Plus a Day 4 and 5 spending recap.
This morning I needed the car, so I drove Shane into work. Then I had to drive out to the hospital where we got Andrew’s x-ray’s done last year (we need the x-rays for the specialist on Monday). After that I had to go to both banks, get gasoline for my car and then go to the grocery store for a few items for dinner. Having the car means I have to go and get Shane from work later tonight.
We had a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad, day yesterday. A funeral, then a really bad headache from Amy, then news that the car repair is going to cost $3,300.00!!! YIKES!!! Then, the kids, after having made disaster area’s out of their bedrooms for the 3rd or 4th time since Christmas, got their toys confiscated!! I had absolutely had it with the lack of respect that they’ve shown all their new things, so Amy and I went into their rooms armed with a green garbage bag. ALL the toys that were on the floor went into the bags. They will earn them back slowly when they show us that they can treat their ‘stuff’ with respect. Drastic? Perhaps, but hopefully the tactic will work.
The only good thing was that Day 4 was a NO SPEND DAY!! Yay! Not so for today, tomorrow, and Saturday. I replenished the jars for this week:
- $250.00 for groceries
- $100.00 for gas
- $50.00 for “other” expenses
Today in my travels I spent:
- $30.00 on gas ($70.00 remaining)
- $9.56 groceries
- $0.44 in sealed pot ($240.00 remaining in grocery budget)
You can find my daily log of spending here.
Hope everyone is enjoying their day…back tomorrow!
