So, okay here it goes.
So what’s that -roughly- enough money so I do not panic. *Note, I have no idea how much I will get from his pension, but it should be over $500…give or take*
My income tax will be -over 1k.
BONUS time right?
so here we go right. All of this -should- be in by this friday. WOOOOOOOO party time.
it also means I can indulge in some mindless retail therapy and get a few new pairs of pants for my daughter and I, and probably my mom as well. Nothing fancy but I would like a few bits of clothing that I haven’t been wearing the past 4 years. Or so.
Because even when the pension GOT here from england that all went to buying a house, a car and blah blah. Then jobs meant I had to sell and move and blah. Oh and putting a crap ton of it into savings that cannot be touched till the girl is old enough to go to college and we can use it then. Untouchable -now-
ANYWAY. that brings us to here.
To me finding out last night I had $7. No income tax because the IRS was down. or was being ate by the Giant Spaghetti Monster. (All hail his noodly apendages).
Fuck. Shit. Bollocks.
Oh and it’s 7 days till pay day. None of this is bad, None of this is *OMFG panic*
I was down to that, but we still had a few things we could pawn….Great.
We did, we pawned those, we bought enough groceries for a while, to last us, went out to the lake. Tossed the dogs into the water. The Dachshaund thought “BuGGER that was cold” but stayed out. Toto. The rat terrier swears up and down we have lost our damned minds, but hey, the girls coat is warm and fluffy and mommy will hold me if I shake hard enough.
This is all good.
Then we went and walked around the mall…for several hours. I wanted an idea of what I could get locally, before I resorted to ebay, and etsy and the like for clothes I found “cool”. Cause I’m 33 damnit, not 60. Just cause I’m fat does NOT mean I have to dress like I’m in retirement.
I have 4 pair of boots I found today to narrow down to 2 pair. 2 pairs of heels to narrow down to 1, and a few pair of flats/sneakers, to narrow down to one or two pair. I found some OMG sexy pants, and shirts that don’t make me look like frump girl from the land of frumpy frumperton.
Oh grocery list. What we actually got off the $30 we spent on groceries.
10lbs of potatoes
1 gallon milk
2lbs butter (real butter no soybean extract crap here)
10lbs dog food
1 dozen eggs,
2 loaves whole wheat bread.
Not bad eh?
I’m pretty impressed by this.
Excercise accomplished today, 50 jumping jacks 2 miles walked, 15 push ups 20 sit ups.
Not bad. I am impressed by this.
