  1. Missed a few days.

    by , 08-24-2013 at 08:18 PM
    Been busy working. Picked up 5 hours yesterday on my day off. Haven't spent anything in a few days except $60 for my dd's parking pass at school. Had my annual performance review at work tonight. I got a raise of .27. Believe it or not that "huge" amount is unheard of normally.....LOL. I know I don't make much, but that is actually a good raise for where I work.

    Tommorow is my 1 day off this week. Going to clean house all day and eat leftovers so no cooking. WOOHOO. ...
  2. Wed 8/21

    No spend day for me today. I worked and picked up 1 additional hour. Not much, but every little bit helps. Just had leftover enchilada soup from the freezer with some biscuits. She ate that when she got home, then around 7 she sauteed some onions, broccoli and carrots. SHRUG.Long boring day, but at least I didn't spend any money.
  3. Day 3 Tuesday 8/20

    It's 3 am. I fell asleep early and forgot to put the cat away. He woke me up at 2 crying at my bedroom door. Not sure why as he could go anywhere else in the house he wanted, and he isn't allowed in my room anyway. Stupid cat. Plans for today as I took today off work to catch up on some stuff:

    Super clean dining and living rooms
    wash my sheets
    Make banana nut muffins for the freezer
    Label freezer food I threw in there the other day without any labeling. ...
  4. Day 2

    Didn't do much at all on Monday 8/19. Spent several hours making phone calls in the morning that only frustrated me. Then worked from 2-6 with a meeting afterwards. Got off around 6:35. At least it was a no spend day, and that is what is important.
  5. Day 1: My success and my not so much so.....

    Up until about 6-9 months ago I spent all Sunday cleaning my home. Now I do little on Sundays, and the house has been showing it. So today I got some stuff done. Not as much as I wanted. Of course, my workout was put off as usual. Instead I need to put myself first.

    Since we have started eating more fresh food and very little processed, I haven't done much in way of coupons. Got out my coupon basket today and cleaned it out. I had some inserts from last Dec. Now I only kept ...
