Day off today and DD is sick so I'm thinking of skipping my parenting group. I really don't want to, it's the second to last week. But she is really not good and needs rest and cuddles. She's with the babies so the ladies are busy with them most of the time.

DH did spend that money and then another $20. GRR. We agreed to a certain amount of spending money each month and he refuses to stick to it. We have the money I just wish he would stick to the budget. I don't want to get into another argument with him about this. I just want to strangle him until he gets it! LOL just kidding.

I have yet to eat some breakfast yet so I guess I should do that and get dressed.

Can't figure out why my car payment has not gone out of the account yet. It was supposed to have gone out around midnight last night, but it's still there.

Also trying to figure out what the extra $17 payment that occured today. I think DH bought something at work, he wanted tylonol, but that can't be $20. I just have these control issues these days, especially when it comes to DH and money. Oh well, it'll be okay when the $700 payment is reversed. I should have called today. I'll call tomorow.

DD is pulling on me right now so I'll finish this later. All about shopping and stuff.

$700 mistake

I paid the phone bill which was just under $74. I typed 7 and then went to check the actual amount. THen typed in 74. Except that it was 774 and I never looked. DH was not happy with me. *MUTTERS*

*BANGS HEAD ON WALL*

It'll be back in the next 3 weeks.

We saved some money on power last night. And gas. The power went out at 11 PM until 2 Am. IT was -42 C with the windchill(-37 without). And then I was an hour late for work. Since I wasn't waiting around for the power to come back on.

And ... I"m having a bad day. My vaccum died last night. Shorted out somewhere we'll get it fixed when it warms up. Until them my mom is lending me hers (2 year olds are MESSY eaters). I cannot find my proof of purchase. But i'm hoping the warranty date on the back of the vaccum is enough. Cross your fingers.

Second verse same as first can't get better can only get worse. I'm a pessimist today. Frown

Blah blah blah

I finally get use the computer. DD is at my mom's for the night, DH has the night off she has tomorrow off. We get to watch a movie with swearing and killing. We get to eat in the living room and drink pop.

This stuff leaves me with only $10 in grocery money until Friday. But ... the days off coinciding happens once every 3 months. I started using cash for groceries. $60/week. Until I figure out if that's enough for us.

DD is nearly potty trained. As long as she doesn't wear anything she'll go without being asked. If she's wearing something she just pees and then tells me. It's a start.

Haven't been home yet this week so it's a good thing the super fling boogie is 2 weeks. I hope that's right.

Happy New Year!!

Reading the journal's here I keep remembering things I need to do.

One was put the bank accounts on the calander. This way DH can see how much money we have and what bills need to be paid when.

We agreed on $40 spending money which he has taken out already. (Big surprise he's just like a little kid).

Next I need to open a second savings account for Christmas for next year. We need to put in about $25/month to pay for next CHristmas.

Going to see if I can do that on-line. Okay that's done now. We have a savings account for our emergency fund, but I want one seperate for christmas. That way DH and I can buy each other something next year. *rolls eyes*

For the first time in 3 years we have money, are saving and paying off debt, etc.

Listening to Dave Ramsey right now and making supper. Which I think is done I'll write more later.
