Thanks for all the support on my decision to not work so hard. Even though it will mean not getting out of debt as fast I feel it is better for my health and peace of mind. Funny thing is my boss that sent the nasty texts and threats has not called, texted, and was not at bank last night. It is like he dropped off the face of the earth. So if I have not heard from him by the 15th, I will write him a letter with our resignation.
Yesterday I put $125.00 in an envelope labeled house payment. I decided on $75.00 a week for gas. These two have to be funded first because they are our biggest expenses. I have another envelope for food, but I am not sure what to put down. We had to fill hubbies car last night and it was $46.00. He will be able to get through Friday and the end of the week when we will have to fill again. So obviously $75.00 is not enough the weeks he drives. I will add to this envelope before the end of the week, but next week when he does not drive we should spend a lot less. I can roll over anything left over from the week before.
We also went to the grocery store last night. We bought milk, 2 loaves of ww bread on sale and two packs of hubbies diet soda. Spent $12.78. He wanted to refill his meds and I said no. He has enough for the next week and they refill at a 3 month supply and with 3 meds that will be $90.00. So I will have to make sure I have a envelope for meds. Since I have never done this before it will be interesting to see how it works. Right now it will be living from day to day just to fill the envelopes. I have forbidden Hubby or myself from writing checks.
Summer ballet starts this morning and I have a lot of work to do in the shop So I am going down to the studio to get things started and then I will come home and sew. I have several people who want to pick up today and I certainly need the money.
We are completely out of meat. I cooked a salmon that was frozen last night. We have plenty of salad and veggies, but I am going to have to find a meat sale and stock up. Right now it will be day to day. Just starting and funding this plan is taking everything I have and then some.
I am hoping to have enough summer ballet checks to cover the rent so I don't have to go to savings. We will see.
Out My Window: It was beautiful yesterday! I mean in the 80's and sunny. But we are back to cool this morning.
Have a great and productive day!
