Tuesday, have to pay attention.

     Yesterday was long, I mean long.......  I got home about 9:30, or I should say I shuffled home as picking up my feet was out of the question.  Had a bad case  of the chills ran a fever of about 100 degrees.  But I felt it was related to my arthritis.  I haven't done that for a long time.  Took a hot bath and that helped the chills not the fever.  I am scheduled for a load dose of Orencia in Spokane on Friday.  Hopefully this drip in procedure will help me get on top of this arthritis flair.  It will take about 2 hours and is so expensive.  The insurance company was not happy but they are the ones that would not approve the yearly injections and made me wait a month for approval so now here I am with the injections not working at full strength.  Answer: a $4000.00 load dose.  At this point I just want to feel better!

     I did get several checks in last night and I need to do a deposit.  I also have to pay the House payment and I have my share put away.  I am having a hard time believing it is 1/3 of the way through April.
I have vacuumed and cleaned the downstairs bedroom and family room this morning. I would like to rearrange the spare bedroom upstairs back to the way it was before Mother came.  I need to sweep and vacuum the upstairs and get the kitchen cleaned (dishes are soaking while I blog) Then if I put away 2 large baskets of laundry I will feel that the house is clean for now.

     Hopefully I will have totals up on the blog sometime this week of where I stand.  That seems to really help me stay accountable.  It is so easy for me to ignore finances when I get busy.  I think it is my way of copping out.  But I was to busy to see that I was over spending........  Yeah have to pay attention. 

     I was able to get payroll done yesterday and also get forms out for costume charges and workshops, now I pray I get good workshop results.  That will make the difference on how I get through the summer.  Although I have saved religiously it will not be enough.  Plug along pay and do not add to your debt.   It is so slow.

     Out My Window:  It is a beautiful day today.  I will not have tome to go outside except to water and feed chicks and water the planters.

     By the way I usually put $40.00 a week into Baby elephants account.  This week I put in $20.00.  I told her I did this because she left the house a mess and to cut back herself.  Not a happy elephant.

     Well I am off to the races,  the slow races......

Have a great and productive day!
