Spent money...Back to Work?

January 24th, 2007 at 05:23 pm

Hello, My name is Thrifty Ray and I spent too much money yesterday (hangs head)

$138 at Costco (ouch)---big mistake to take H with me.

$6 on lunch for H and I

$62 at top for me! and a gift card and gift for a friend and her daughter.

$14 on dinner with said friend.

Luckily, H made an extra $200 last week in overtime...but it should have went towards the new well-pump bill but was spent on frivulous do-dads instead....although, that NEW TOP sure looks cute on this thinning body!! Wink

I have emailed the CEO at my old job and let him know I might be interested in coming back to work...He wants to get togerther for lunch and talk about options.

Why the change of heart?

Well, the business is doing good...but still not good enough to support DD1 and I both in the office...and DD1 would be better off here where she can have GD most of the time.

If DD1 is out here fulltime, she can be here for nana and papa...and will also be here when DD3 comes home from school.

I could start paying down those debts we've incurred with the wood business faster and save money to help nana if something happens to my dad...(it sucks when medical insurance is not carried on for the surviving spouse)

And it would get my career back in swing with some new responsibilities.

So...we shall see what transpires from lunch and subsequent discussions...

    haha... we went to Costco yesterday too! lol... our friend who has a membership had the day off so he took us so we could check it out...we didn't buy much since we normally shop at SAMs Club but ended up spending about $10 on a particular spice (which they used to sell at SAMs and then stopped so we stocked up on 3 bottles) and another $3 on lunch for the two of us...
    i'm sure you look great in your new top... i know when DH loses weight i will encourage him to "splurge" a tinsy bit on some feel-good clothes...
    sometimes nothing feels better than something that fits...

    A new shirt every now and then, especially one that makes you feel fabulous, is worth it. Plus it'll give you confidence for your interview! Good luck!
