Well all the toilet paper and cleaning supplies at Costco cost $130.00 but should last through Christmas. We wipe a lot of bums everyday with and average of 50 students a day coming through that place. We spent $100.00 on Halloween candy. I went to Moscow last night and spent the night with the youngest daughter. We went to Wingers for ribs, yum! We split a rack and still brought home over 1/2. I took her grocery shopping, as I have not done that since hubby did this the first of Sept. I spent $130.00 about $30.00 was for Thanksgiving stock up. They have a Winco and it is so much cheaper than our stores here. I also purchased her a new wool coat at Old Navy. It is very warm where we live, but up the hill it averages about 20 degrees a day in the winter. I could not beleive how cold it was. We never really even have heavy coats here unless we are going out to ski. I actually wear heavy Swedish Sweaters most of the winter. Went for over ten years without a winter coat. I also purchased 4 new sweat outfits for teaching for daughter and I. They were expensive, but we sweat and wash these every day. I would rather have an outfit last 2 years of washing rather that one month. So we do buy high quality teaching clothes. I have not had any new ones for two years. Total Old Navy $120.00 (earned $50.00 in christmas $ purchases) Sports Shop $385.00.
See what happens when Kim starts getting ahead? I spend money. Not to justify this but it has been a long time! Please don't total all I spent I can't take it! Although I will tell you I paid cash for everything. How nice. Two years ago I would have charged all but the groceries. See how I have changed. Just the fact that I had the money to pay cash is a miracle to me.
I just realized that both cars will have to have gas tonight! That will be at least $100.00. Darn. But I have several people picking up today so I will be fine. Plus I have so much work to do.
Out My Window: The question is? Will we get any trimming done this weekend? I think I am avoiding it. Can you imagine that? Only 35 shrubs some the size of a small car that need to be cut down to knee level. Why should I avoid that?
Well I need to put away my groceries, and I have several customers that are due in today. Also need to go to the Jr. High and get a printing order in, then go teach a dance class. Oh don't forget the sewing. Better get my butt in gear. Oh I also had my nails done yesterday! Have you ever listened to public radio? I like it, but some times the nuts they have on there. I listened to it on the way up the hill yesterday. Did you know there is a man that has it on good authority that soy based products in our diets over the last 30 years, have caused men to be non-masculine? I am a dance teacher, don't even get me started. I get young men as young as three and raise them into the dance world. Many have gone on professionally, and none of them was made non-masculine by diet, nor can a three year old make a choice! I about stopped the truck to throw up. Okay, done with my rant!
Have a Great and Productive Day!
