I'm still here!

April 30th, 2007 at 10:52 pm

Sorry I've been incommunicado lately. I've been busy doing (guess what!) work on the house. Everything is done now except for the ceiling repair -- and top to bottom cleaning. I even had the garage sale this past weekend -- but I can't tell you what I cleared, because I was so tired I didn't count the money I started with, and I still haven't counted the change I brought in. Suffice to say it was over $100. The ad was $42.40 -- two-day run. Next time I'll just do one day; that's too much of a cut. I also ruined a good pair of khaki pants because I wore an apron with a pen in the pocket. The pen was poking through the fabric and drew on my thigh all morning as I was moving around. I'll try to treat the pants, but I don't have high hopes.

Just did my month's end summin' up. It's been a blowout month. I spent $3868, well over my average of ~$3100. Several reasons -- $877 in home repair costs (which included some new carpeting), $493 in vet costs (my dog had to have a toe amputated), $219 in gifts (and not one occasion!), $140 in lawn & garden (shrub trimming in addition to lawn mowing). Gas, groceries, eating out, miscellaneous were all higher than usual. Oh, it was just that kind of month. I just hope and pray I can reel it in next month.

I had 8 no-spend days -- but I spent a lot when I was spending!

I AM proud that through all this stress I've maintained an average calorie intake of 1770 and I lost three pounds this month.
