Okay, that is the rant you will hear all week. Taxes. It will take me a while. I have everything organized in files but all have to be totaled and it is a head ache. Personal, shop, studio, all have to be separated, although I do file them differently, there is always an over flow. Yuck! Then I read Judy's blog and she said the FAFSA word. I will be very glad when I no longer have to deal with them. I'm thinking 4-5 more years and I am done! Then B will be on her own. Like I pray she will be.
Many people in our religion marry very young. It is encouraged by the parents. It is much easier to pawn a daughter off on a young husband and say you are married you are on your own now. Children come and the kids are tied down with kids so no education. But now you have a pack or 2-3 packs of uneducated kids and their kids living with you. So as aggravating as helping your kids in college is, I think it is a better alternative than the other.
We have 9 more days of our challenge, let's see how well we can do. One thing that I have really made myself do although I hate it. Is write down every purchase. I am anxious to total this although I think it will scare me. This is one part of the challenge that I am going to do next month. For some reason having to write a purchase down makes me not purchase. Kind of like having to write down that ice cream in a food diary. Yeah, this works for me. Don't like it but it works.
Out My Window: Overcast and gloomy and cold. January can be the longest month, but I feel great about it right now, I think the challenges and blogging have really helped!
I need to go get dressed, do a little house work, put together a meat loaf I should have done yesterday. I am going to make myself sew at least $100.00 and then attack the taxes, I also have 3 college classes that have to be sorted out today as last week was a holiday and they didn't meet and then were cancelled on Wednesday because of snow. I also must order some costume TODAY. So I am going to get right on that.
Have a great and productive day!
