What a week!

Well, a few things have happened - we got a snowstorm on Sunday night, over 7" of snow and we still had school on Monday! I called in - it was just too dangerous to drive, and it took us awhile to dig out.

That evening, though, I went to Kmart for super doubles and got two nice bags full of stuff for $4. I like that! lol They were out of the Gilette body wash, but I figured they would be. Our Kmart is not well-stocked under good circumstances, much less when they're doing this.

As I was leaving, though, I walked past electronics and didn't check the Wii games. Then, I realized I'd probably kick myself if I didn't look for a Wii Fit, even though there was no way they'd have them...but they DID! So I got one! (Mom paid for it as the rest of my xmas present from her) That thing is AWESOME! I'm so excited - it's fun to use, and I've lost 3 pounds since I started it on Monday. Go figure!

I did get the bills done, and we are left with...not much until payday (the 19th this month). We do have cash set aside for xmas, but we have about $135 in the checking account. Obviously, we will have to suck it up, and also borrow some from our EF to get through the month. I hate that. I told dh, I want to limit it to $25 a week if we can, which I know will be hard, but we have got to start following the budget. There is no way that two people should not be able to live on our income, even with the debt payments we have. It's very frustrating.

I'm about to head down to the office to work on getting some ebay auctions ready to go. I figure, I can get as many as possible set this weekend, but then it's just getting too close to Christmas. If I wait much longer, they won't ship in time to make it, and then people get crabby. I'm also a little chilly, so getting up and moving around would be a good idea.

But first...what should I have for lunch? Hmm...
