Apparently my work is trying to make up for the past month of slow going (I've been short at least an hour every week in the past month) all in one week. Oh... my... goodness am I wore out. BUT I did a pretty good job with spending today. I came in under budget. I also recorded all the spending thus far for the week and balanced the checkbook (I don't write checks but I'm not sure how else to explain it... balanced the bank account). AGAIN I've spent more in the first 3 days of the week than I had thought. I REALLY REALLY REALLY need to, if nothing else, pay attention!
I've spent $28.02 over the $12 a day budget so far this week. All I can say is that I intend to try my hardest (which hasn't been too great lately). I'd like to see that number not go up. In fact I'm not going to aspire to balance the budget for this week because I think I'll get too frustrated and overwhelmed. BUT I am going to try and get that $28.02 under $20 by Friday. Ok, goal.
Today's Lovely: There was a giant magenta sun creeping over the horizon as I drove to work. The sky was gorgeous. This crazy day began ever so beautifully and peacefully.
