My little silver pig for $1's that I get at the studio for soda!
Don't you love the postage stamp stuck to the window well so I can reuse it? Ever frugal me.
I have also taken to weighing my pink pig like Carla. By the weigh(I mean way) she has gained 2 lbs in the last few weeks! I need a life! But alas anything to keep me motivated.
It is hubbies week to drive so we will see at the end of the week how big a hit we take on the gas bill. Gas is up about .37 a gallon here. Drat! It just deflates me when we struggle so hard to save money and cut back to pay off debt and the little extra we do manage to save goes to the gas tank.
Daughter #2 called and said she got employee of the month at her office. She was able to read all the comments that her co-workers had written about her. Most centered around, "she doesn't whine and complain". I had to laugh because she said the doctor was supposed to bring flowers and gift certificates and he forgot. But she didn't complain.:)
Daughter #3 wants to give up her apartment this summer and move into a academic Sorority next year. We are not that supportive, but financially it is a wash considering the problems we have had with reliable room mates. She is very lonely and is scared at night. So she has had a hard time sleeping. Even though she is in a big complex of people. The internet her apartment provides is substandard and it is bogged down at peak hours. So she has been walking to campus to get on the net as much of her chemistry and micro work is on-line. She met a group of girls from this sorority in her science classes and she has been studying at the house at night as the internet is great and one of the local boys will walk her home along with another girl in her complex. They are not allowed to walk at night without an escort. It is a dry house which is important to us and not on Greek row, where the party scene is. In fact I have been checking it out and it is what they say, an academic house. She will have to work more to pay for extras. As long as I don't have to come up with any more money. We do help her a certain amount every month and provide, her car insurance and cell phone.
Out My Window: Beautiful, sunny but cold! The chickens laid 8 eggs yesterday! That is a record, but the days are getting longer. We are supposed to have another cold snap this weekend. Dang.
I have huge piles in the shop, and I need to get motivated. Any one have any ideas? How about: You won't be able to pay your bills. Now that is motivation.
Have a great and productive day!
