Well I don't know about you... but my weekend was pretty damn productive. I really needed to buckle down and get a bunch of stuff off of my to-do list because it was threatening to go to two pages and I can't function like that.
I'm participating in an Ornament Swap this year and because I'm all about even numbers, I signed up to swap two. And MY swap partners are UBBER lucky because they got a fun ornament I bought, one I made AND a set of cards. Lucky whores. I had one package done and ready to go, but the other package just needed a set of cards. So I made these. And wished I had kept them for myself.
my Etsy shop, go there NOW so you can see what else is new.
I wish I knew how to get video off of my cell phone and put it on here for you. Yesterday I was teaching Jackson to say all kinds of things, but probably the cutest was him saying "Go Broncos"... which I did for my friend Matt. Matt thought it was cute and it really was.
But even cuter was Jackson today- insisting on wearing a princess dress. At first Olivia said he could and he pitched a damn fit. So I found him this one and he was thrilled. He wore that thing almost all day. You'll notice his bracelet- which is a piece to some toy but he's telling me it's a bracelet.
This week is going to be hectic. I work every day except for Friday, so I'm hoping my paycheck is good. I have to go down to the vet and explain to them they need to stop calling me every day about the bill. Our bill was $1200 and some change and we're down to just under $700. Lay the fuck off- I can't pay you any faster than I already am you fucking scam artist whores. *sigh* It's just really annoying because I gave them everything extra I have. My checking currently has a little over $10 in it, my savings is around $40 and I'm eating peanut butter cookies for dinner. Matt's currently eating a hot dog bun. Quite frankly- I'm not sure where else the money can come from. He doesn't get paid until Tuesday and that is already spent.
I also got my tax escrow check in the mail which I want to spend SO EFFING BAD but I know my property tax bill is coming. It almost always comes the week of Christmas which just kills the spirit faster than your tree going up in flames. The check is for $1900 and I hope to GOD we don't owe more money for property tax. So I have that all set aside so we can just pay the bill (hopefully all) as soon as it comes.
And Matt's Grandma is pretty much going to pass away any day. She's in Northfield, MN which means that very soon we're going to be making a funeral trip. Which is easily $80 in gas, plus at least one meal, and not to mention- we both need funeral clothes. Neither one of us have anything even close to being appropriate for a funeral so we need to get some.
You know things are bad when you're too broke to even play the lottery. :/
