A great Saturday-

November 18th, 2012 at 02:50 am

For some reason, I keep getting logged out of the site. I had a nice long post this morning, but when I went to post it- it was lost. I hate when that happens!

Yesterday I enjoyed a day of free meals. On payday’s our IT department picks up breakfast burritos. Usually they are $3-4 a piece, but a co-worker paid for them. Then at lunch, I went with another co-worker and a couple of mutual friends. We had chipped in to get my co-worker a gift card to go to lunch together last month (for his birthday)…and yesterday was our lunch date. The restaurant that we went to is one of my kids’ favorites and they have a special during the Holidays- but a gift card for $25 and get a $5 bonus. So I picked up one for each of the kids for Christmas.

I have about 90% of my present wrapping done- I have a tall kitchen table and am using that as my wrapping station this year. Usually, I spread out everything on the floor and sit and wrap..but using the table is SO much easier, especially on my back! Im not sure why it takes so long for lightbulb moments like this to go off for me…but am sure glad when they do!

I got a nice surprise today. DD2 dropped by with a mocha and a puzzle. She had my lil foster grandbaby (Z) too. They spent the entire day with me!! Z is now 22 months..and he followed me around while I did the housework. He loves it when I put makeup on…because we always dry brush his cheeks too and it makes him giggle. He is such a sweetheart. DD2 and I got pretty far on the puzzle- DD3 even came by for a couple hours. So fun. By this afternoon, Z had started running a fever, so he sat on my lap and we rocked. They left a little while ago- it was such a fun day. Here is a little 'incognito' pic of lil Z...isnt he adorable?

Yesterday was my payday. Because I am exempt, my checks are always the same- which makes budgeting easier. This check covered the freedom account (car insurance, car repair, pet, clothes, house repairs and miscellaneous) - $279; the birthday account $65; the Christmas deposit $150; the trash bill $60 for two months; $150 towards cc debt; and the rest rolls for to the end of the month. Next week, the hub starts getting a paycheck again after his three week break. We are still on track to have $3000 for savings by the end of the month.

Tomorrow is DD2’s daughters 4th birthday party. (Gift is bought and wrapped!) I will get to see all three daughters and their kiddos. My son and his family cant make it up- but I am looking forward to time with the rest of the family. The party is at a community center that has a big room with two jump houses in it. The kids have LOTS of room to run and play. (And my house wont get destroyed!!)

This next week I only work two days, and then have 5 off. This is the last of my long weekends until late January. I hope to finish ALL of my Christmas prep during the 5 days- especially since I only have 2 more days off the rest of the year and work is about to ramp up even more with some changes coming down the pike.

    I've lost a few posts, too. I have found it happens when I post from the "New Entry" link on the blog home page. If you go to your blog from the links at the very top, and from there you use the "new entry" link also at the top, it tends to not lose your post.

    I've also taken to clicking in the text box, hitting ctrl-a to highlight the entire post, ctrl-c to copy it, and then if it is lost, I re-enter everything with a simple ctrl-v. My mnemonics are "ctrl-all, ctrl-copy, and ctrl-(this one is visual) the little v-thing we used to make to show "insert this here."
