I’ve got to get this off of my chest. Yesterday, I went down to check the mail, and guess what I found? Evidently some people think it’s funny to go down the road bashing in people’s mailboxes! Grrrrrr. I cannot imagine having that much lack of respect for other’s people’s property that I could just decide to destroy it because I thought it was “fun(ny)”.
So, of course, I had to go spend money that I had not planned to spend to replace the new mailbox that has only been up for a few months. It just really irks me. OK – it’s off my chest now.
This week my kids got to spend a couple of nights with their grandparents. As much as I loved the peace and quite, I sure have missed them and I can’t wait to pick them up later today. It’s always good to have them back home.
There were some really good deals this week at the stores on some items that I needed to stock up on. It felt nice to buy quite a bit and spend just a little!
Sunday will be Katie’s 11th birthday. My goodness, where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday she was just this little bitty girl who loved wearing her pink hat ALL.THE.TIME. LOL I sure to miss those days, but I love watching her grow up. Happy early birthday, sweetheart!
Melia will also be baptized Sunday afternoon. It is going to be such a wonderful day for my family! I’m praying for good weather all around!
Brian and I decided to try and save ourselves some money by grooming Chip, my Shih-Tzu, ourselves. We spent $30 on the clippers and didn’t do too bad, but boy does he NOT like it. He fought and carried on. It took about an hour to get the majority of him, but we still needed to do his face. We ended up having to get some extra help for his face because he just would NOT be still. If we can ever get him to calm down, this will save us about $80 every 6 to 8 weeks.
This week, we also have something else to be thankful for. Brian got a raise at work! It’s been a long time coming, and we are very thankful for it. God blesses us when He sees fit. We will continue to try and be diligent about handling our finances the way He wants us to.
