Day 218 and One More Day Till School Starts

I've enjoyed the summer but I"m sure glad to be making more money and to be getting back into a regular routine. Josh started his classes today, Tasha starts Wednesday, and Serenity and I start Monday.

I've got a budget done for the rest of this month and have started on Septembers but haven't finished it yet. I am going to hold onto these textbooks, I just can't bring myself to sell them for 75 or 80 cents. I cashed in the change I rolled on Saturday so now our baby EF is $25. It's weird how much better I feel with even that little bit in there. Just knowing that it's not completely empty is somewhat comforting!

I had a frightful moment when I was on the phone with Serenity earlier. She couldn't get her gear shift to move and I was thinking "AAAAHHHHHH, I don't think $25 is going to fix something like that". LOL. Anyway, she got it, I guess it was just stuck. Phew!

Today as I had a moment here and there, I worked on my menu and grocery list for the next couple of weeks for when I do my grocery shopping this weekend. As I mentioned, we're not eating out until we get everything caught up to date. Then this afternoon, Josh has the nerve to come in and ask me for $10 so he could go eat at the BBQ joint. The boy has a job and more money than I do right now, but he wants me to pay for HIM to eat out. ARGH!

Oh, and no, I didn't give him the $'s!

I've been following your blog for a while now, and I know you at some point mentioned where outside of Enid you live, but for the life of me I can't remember. Anyway, we live in Enid, and my husband has recently started working in Waukomis. (did I spell that right? Crazy word)

I am looking into going back to work, and if I get hired on where I applied today, a babysitter/daycare out that way would be amazingly helpful...

We are also trying to find a 2 or 3 bedroom house or apartment... but they seem to be in short supply.

I live in Pond Creek. And yes, you spelled Waukomis right. LOL. You can try Child Care Finders: 548-2318 and you can also look online at, click on "child care locator/summary of facility monitoring" to look for child care. You can also e-mail me privately at or with the names of anyone you find and I can tell you if I know them or anything about them. I would suggest that you check out the licensing record of any child care provider that you are considering. Good luck!
