$700 mistake

January 13th, 2005 at 11:12 pm

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*


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

30 hours

January 12th, 2005 at 12:58 am

Back up to 30 hours again. Someone got fired and another girl's father died so she's gone for an indetermined amount of time. I miss her, she is the best employee in the company. I hope she's okay.

Dh is cooking supper. We're drinking the coolers left from my dad's visit this weekend.

My dad brought a mates bed for our daughter. He also brought a 6-drawer dresser. Also a game for me and a blender for all of us and a toy for DD. Phew! Spoiled? Then he tried to give me money!! Too much money.

My course also came so I better get to work on that. I have from now until April 22 to finish it. There is a lot of work. All about writing service plans (goals) for people with disabilities. I have to call my aunt later to see if she'll answer some questions for my first paper. Her 4 year old has autism.

Going to drink some more. LOL

I get paid tonight jsut after midnight.

Either DH is busy at work he's mad at me. He seemed mad when he was getting ready and leaving for work. I dunno.

I had a epiphany. Not going to write it here it's rather personal.

There is a blizzard warning going on here. It's been snowing and blowing all day. Otherwise it's been warm here. -11 C. Much nicer than -23, but then you factor in the windchill and it's not any warmer.

I was only supposed to work 24 hours this week but a guy got fired, so I get an extra shift. 30 hours +6 hours of stat pay. YAY. This will be my biggest pay check so far, in 6.5 months of working.

I am going to talk DH into going ot buy some wood. He's so bored he's driving me mad. When he gets really bored he just goes and sleeps for half an hour. I feel like I'm not interesting. :P

ANyway, it's bath time. Just watching the end of jeopardy. I wanna see if the woman wins and remains champ

Shopping List

January 2nd, 2005 at 04:07 am

Have written a shopping list. going to wal-mart after work (I work at a grocery store but the store is so bloody expensive I can't afford to buy much there. Except dairy products, only Wal-mart is cheaper for milk and yoghurt.)

Waiting to see if DH needs to add anything. I'm taking $60/week out in cash for groceries. Hopefully that'll be enough. At the end of the month I'll adjust it (or mid-month if I"m seriously out).

Well DD is dipping her weeble in the yoghurt. So I think I'd better go pay attention to her.
