I think everyone goes through phases throughout the year where you just freely spend.
We apparently have been going through one & our account hit the lowest it's been in...I don't even know how long.
|I feel your pain.|
Tightening up a little as of today.
I say a little because there are things coming up such as birthday & preplanned things, so that will make it a little difficult to completely cut out the "extras". But I can watch more closely to spending. So, we're gonna do that...or I am. Which means I'm gonna snatch my hubbies debit card from him this evening.
Coming up we have: Finish paying club dues, concert for me on Friday, my brothers birthday on Thursday, bills due next week, a baby shower next week....and then there's July aka the best month ever. On top of another baby shower, July is my birthday month & it's all downhill from there. The rest of the year is (can be) just expensive we know at least one person with a birthday every. month. & then Holidays. Haha. So needless to say, I've got to kick my self discipline back in.
So with all that in mind, on top of me saving, I'm still hoping that I can get back to my comfort zone with our account in the next month or so.
July is also when I start talking about Christmas (this is your warning. I'm one of those people.) No, I'm not kidding. It's actually already on my mind, but I try to not talk about it too much 'til about July or later.
On a lighter note.
I hope everyone had a good weekend!
Mine was fantastic.
Friday my hubs & I laid in the driveway for hours talking. Then at midnight, midnight, the Goldshlager came out to play & yours truly played with it a little too much. it's was smaller bottle. Doug took one, mayyybe 2 shots. The rest of the bottle? I drank it. And then, what did I do? I finished off my moonshine. By 3am I did my share of drunk FBing & Tweeting, (which I don't think was too bad). & then my husband woke up to get ready to go fishing & I passed OUT!
Saturday I woke up with a slight headache & a bit shakey, needed food & water. But otherwise I was good to go. My niece came up so I got to see her pretty face all day. And what was even better is my niece and nephew were both here. So after a short shopping trip with everyone (minus my dad), we spent the bulk of the day at home & I got to play with them both! We had fun. & I got some new pictures for mom & dad. Dues to situations, we always want to make sure we get as many pictures as possible, especially when they are both here at the same time.
Sunday, Father's Day, I didn't even get to see my Daddy until after 9 last night. He had to work & we had a cookout to go to at Doug's Nana's with his family, which is always a good time. Dad's gift was originally supposed to be his Father of the Bride gift. It's a picture frame that says "Anyone can be a Father but it take someone special to be a Dad" & it has 4 photo slots & small plaque that I had engraved saying,
"I Love You, Daddy
(& yes, I've had this thing for 2 years & am just now giving it to him, I know, I suck.)
He also got a Home Depot from the 3 of us & then Doug is gonna fix his weed eater.
Coming Up, this week, I'm gonna kind of lay low- other than my typical housewifey type shit, like making sure my man has clothes to wear. Before Thursday I gotta take my mom to get a few more clothes for their trip & then Friday I will be in Atlanta probably all day, or most of the day for One Direction. 1D. Y'all, OMG. I don't even care how crazy I sound. I bought the tickets A YEAR AGO, I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR ABOUT A YEAR. I just reallly wish I had meet & greets to surprise my cousin & her cousin with. (& for my pleasure too, of course). I'm not a creeper. I promise. I love you, Harry.
Mom & Dad are leaving for Maryland Friday. So I'll get to cleaaaan. I'm excited about it now, lets just wait and see what all I actually do. Why am I excited? I don't like to clean when there are people here. Mom & I don't work, she's ALWAYS here, meaning I never clean unless I do it while she's asleep or by some crazy chance, gone. I just clean better when no one's here. I don't like people watching me, or in my way. Just gtfo, thanks. :)
As far as blogging, I'll try to have the first Wedding post ready for tomorrow.
How's that for rambling?
Oh you know how I said I get songs stuck in my head & I have to listen to them?
Current songs stuck in my head:
Robin Thicke ft. Pharrell & T.I.- Blurred Lines.
Alrighty, I'm out!
