No money

February 28th, 2005 at 02:41 pm

We have no money again.

Our power bill is $30 more than normal becuase the car was plugged in so much last month. Ugh.
And my student loan is due March 1. Then I'll apply for interest relief again so we can pay off the car loan as quickly as possible.

Filed my taxes today. We used cutetax.ca or whatever the address is. Found it on the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency Website. Since we made under $30,000 we didn't pay a thing. That was nice. Should get a good return and then we'll give that way so DH can go back to school in the summer. Whee. (He owes dorm fees so we can't get a transcript).

I should get and do some homework. And finish housework. DD fell asleep on the couch during quiet time so I'm gonna let her sleep until 4 PM and then have a snack and maybe get outside.

Need to remind myself to write about playschool as well. Going to do that on Friday. YAY!!

Books

February 20th, 2005 at 10:11 pm

I have about ten books on hold at the library. I have to go cancel some and add them to the future reads list. Which is getting longer the longer I am online. Gonna try to stay up to see DH for a bit. Last night I didn't and he came to bed. I think maybe he felt guility for doing osmething he should not have. Oh well. I trust that things will be okay. I can't obess any more, it's too draining. I have too many other things to do, and obesessing is just wasting time in my opinion. Okay I'm off to read some more. Haave a good night.

V-Day

February 14th, 2005 at 11:24 am

I got new undies for V-Day. DH got a tooth pulled. It was really hurting (he should have told me a few months ago and it could have gotten filled at that time :PPP)

Our power bill went waaaaay up due to plugging the car in.

I got taken out the other night by a friend for a pedicure. That was NIIIIICE. We are going to have her, her hubby and their kids in for supper sometime. We met at a parenting group. She's so nice. We sat up til midnight chatting (she stuck around because DD came home from Gram's and threw up ... all over Gram).

It's nice to have a friend again. Even if she's craaazy. J/k. She's really nice. and her oldest daughter and my dd are sooo much alike. I hope they get along. Hers is in school and didn't come to the group.

Trying to get DD to eat peanut butter. Dora eats in the book we have so I thought maybe she'd try it. No chance. I'll keep trying for a few days.

Anyway, I have to do some more housework and check on the bread.

Tired

Freecycle was on CBC Marketplace a week ago and then two days later I was in the paper about freecycle here.

We've had 148 new members in a week, to the hour. HEHE. Probably make 150 by tomorrow.

It's been pretty crazy.

People just WANT WANT WANT. I think we've had at least 5 computers wanted (not mentioning the person who wants them for charity). We've had a request for a trampoline (not ripped anywhere) and an electric guitar. :P I'm a little annoyed with the outrageous people. Sure if someone OFFERS. But rarely do people give big ticket items away. Of course, this is what they portrayed on Marketplace :P :P :P

Given away there's been a pool table, stove and dishwasher and a leather coat.

It's been hopping so I haven't had time for much else while on line. That and I finally finished my second assignment. Have to wait for my letter of consent before I can send it in tho.

Write about valentine's day soon.

Playschool, Freecycle in the paper, and Flylady

February 5th, 2005 at 05:14 pm

Looking into playschool for DD for the fall. Anyone heard of Montessori? I looked it up online and it looked a little different. I don't think we'll go there. But almost everything else is across town. But I think we figured it out. Will have to drop her off, then come home for a while, then when it's time for DH to go to work he'll drop me off at the school. I'll hang out until DD's done and then we'll take the bus home. If we can't get a bunch of debt paid off and get our second car to this province by then.

The other thing is the cost. We aren't sure what the cost will be for playschool here.

I got interviewed for my local freecycle group. The reporter is using my picture and everything. EEK! Another local group contactedd him but then backed up. I really don't like the person running the group. She just rubs me the wrong way.

I'm trying to jump on this shine your sink from flylady. I hate the dishes strewn around the kitchen because everything else gets left out. And then when it's time to make supper it's just overwhelming and i don't feel like it. So I wrote to freecycle asking for rubbermaid bins and if I don't hear anything by mid-week I'm going to buy one. They aren't that much. I only need 5 gallons, that'll be lots.

I also need to re-write my menus. Next month maybe I"ll buy Saving DInner. I liked lots of the recipes, but DD won't eat anything and when it's just me and her I'm tired of cooking things she doens't eat.
