It was an expensive weekend. Had to buy dog food and cat food and cleaning supplies, but that was on the normal end. Both vehicles were out of gas which is unusual at the same time. I have forbidden Hubby from writing a check for gas as I don't want to owe more to the checking overdraft. Then D#3 comes home from college with a load of crap. She is flat broke and has two more finals. It is the end of the year and she has lived on a pretty strict budget so it does not surprise me. Her gas tank is empty. Hubby has many field meetings with higher ups this week. I have been on him about his work pants and he says they are fine, Well they are trashed and he has two pairs of double kneed logger pants. Does he want to go out in the field to represent his office with those pants on? He finally tells me he thinks he needs new pants. Then he shows me his light hightop boots and they are worn down and worn out on the inside. He is wearing his low tops.
If you all recall the problems we went through last year with Hubbies feet. It was quite serious and crippling and very expensive. He thought he could wear the lowtops for a few weeks and within two days was limping. So in addition to two new pairs of logger pants we also bought hightop Merrill work boots.
I was getting really low on some medications and I found out when it comes to personal, Um how do I put this delicately, when it comes to hemorrhoid meds DO NOT BUY THE STORE BRAND. I felt like I was on the downward cycle of this thing and last Friday felt like maybe I was starting to flare again. So at the store I bit the bullet and bought name brand at 3 and 4 dollars more an item. I am so desperate to feel better. Home we go and let me tell you. Instant relief. Just because it says compare to does not mean the same amount of meds is in the medication. I am doing much better. Not perfect but better.
We were able to find 15 more perennials in the dead and dieing bins and the sprinkler company is coming today to turn on the water. It is a very cold dry spring. I just turned off the heat yesterday. The lawn is crispy. We are behind 1.5 inches of water this month and Hubby is worried about drought. My poor plants need water and we cannot plant the garden with out our system being turned on.
Light Boots: $119.00
Gas for 3 vehicles: $140.00
Dog/cat/cleaning supplies: $45.00
So on a sad note I am way behind on my house savings and must really work hard to get $500.00 for the house payment before the end of the week. Yikes!
Out My Window: Hot finally, but the wind is blowing very hard which makes a mess outside and allergies are at an all time high. At least it is warming up.
I have to get to work, the sprinkler man is here and I will need to pay him......
Have a great and productive day!
