May so far

May 10th, 2015 at 07:19 am

Firstable, Happy Mother's Day to all of the SA Moms and single Dads!

May has been a doozy. I've not track daily expenses and we've spend way too much, but I think that May can still be saved. I don't regret the big purchases but it's the little daily expenses that have been out of control like eating out. I blame my job for the stress; end of the year things in a school can be rather trying, but as of today I will put my foot down and deal with the stress a bit differently. Luckily, the next pay checks are are rather big and I hope to be able to save and pay the credit card.

On another note, our home's surroundings are beginning to look gorgeous. We moved here in the November so I was waiting to see how nice the property looked in full bloom. The house seats in 1.05 acre lot. Extremely unusual for our town. Most homes in our town sit on a 50x100. I found this beautiful spinning thingamajig at Costco to put in the front of the house. I paid $30 for it, but I really enjoy and love it. I've gotten lots of compliments on it.

    What a delightful wind spinner, enjoy! How exciting to discover all the beauty of nature and landscaping. End of term work but we hope you'll take time each day to smell the flowers and enjoy your porch bench.
