First off, I wanted to thank everyone for the kind words yesterday in the comments. I didn't reply to them because I felt it would be self-indulgent. But, I did want you all to know I appreciate the support!
I am losing my mind over here. I just cannot get used to this "new" summer schedule.
We're on week two so far and things have been just as hectic as during the school year. I keep waiting for it to slow down.
Maybe next week....
I did get 2 new books in the mail, both from Dave Ramsey, "Financial Peace Revisited" and "The Total Money Makeover". I always feel better if I have a project or something to focus on and I figured getting back on board with a budget would be a good place to start.
Since I am the HO™ (the Home Office) around here, I'm in charge of all financial matters and it gives me great satisfaction to find new ways to save money.
So, that's my new project.
In other news, I've devised a plan to give Buddy one dollar for each morning he keeps an eye on his sister while I take a shower. As soon as he is finished with breakfast, I plan on being one dollar lighter in a bit.
I guess this summer break thing may work out for me after all....
And, don't forget! The Avon giveaway is still open - and will be open for entries until Sunday! If you haven't entered yet, do it. There are very few entries, and that means a better shot for YOU to win! :-)
