Weekly Money Checkup

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on not very exciting fabric. Everyone I know seems to be having babies and I am out of bibs and burp clothes for gifts. Actually this will save me money. :)
2. Today I feel stressed towards money. We looked at sheds yesterday for the yard and thinking about the things we need to buy for the house this summer is making me stress.
3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was make a huge meal Saturday night with my husband. It's nice to cook together instead of by myself.
4. I will consider this week a success if I get my basement closet reorganized and all 12 gallons of paint that came with our house taken to Habitat.
5. My favorite way to relax is have a nice hot bath with salts and bubbles. I added a jetted tub for the master to my wish list of wants.

This Weekly money checkup comes from My Pretty Pennies.

Since I haven't written since last week first I want to say Happy Birthday to my father in law! I am not even really sure of what I have been up to since last Monday other than cutting out fabric for bibs and burp clothes. I am making a ton as I have sold out of all but one and they make good gifts and I sell a lot of them.

I need to stay focused because right now my head is swimming with how to balance our budget for this month/next month. My bills/statements have started arriving from my kidney stones/scans and we are going to be very tight and not be able put anything away in savings for at least a month. Sigh, this makes me sad because every time I see one of the medical bills it makes me think of what we could be doing with that much money. :( 

On to happy news.....I found shutters for the front of the house for CHEAP! Yeah! The last last few cold weeks have been horrible for the shutters on the front of our house. Every single one has cracked and broken. :( But I have found them for so reasonable that I want to dance! Yeah to good prices when I thought they were going to be expensive! So I have been driving around looking at house colors since those need replaced and our trim needs painted. 

Anyways have a wonderful week! I started mine out early taking my dad to the airport. Poor guy has to go to Minneapolis for the week. :( Enjoy!
