My husband decided that we needed Indian food for dinner tonite and brought some home. I've skirted around his spending like this a few times but it was a lot of food and dinner for all of us so I'm not going to dodge this one. I'm just going to suck it up and add this spending to the budget for the month. I'm so close to the finish line too. $27 seems like hundreds to me right now. I'm not going to call today a no spend either. I didn't buy anything. I didn't spend any money BUT we ate a $27 dinner that was purchased this evening so I'll bite the bullet on that one too: not a no spend today. I'm actually a little bit more flustered by that than by the $27 dinner (and lunch for tomorrow; it was a lot of food). Today would have been number 92. I guess tomorrow will have to claim that title.
I've 13 more NO SPEND days for my 104 goal. There's $40.78 left in this month's budget in order to come in at $13.50 a day spending average for the year. I'm pretty sure I can make it one week longer with the $40.78 which in itself is pretty good. But then the count done begins for the last two weeks of the month. What will the average daily spending for this year end up at??? I'm getting anxious.
Also, there has been no Christmas crafting the past few days even though I'd planned to do at least a little every day this month. My son is still not feeling well and no one is sleeping well. The past few days I've been spending all of my time snuggling him and getting him things to calm him down/ soothe him. This is his first real illness and it's a doozy. On top of it he's really on track with the potty training but poo patrol can be unbelievably time consuming. The good news is that we haven't had one single poopy diaper for 5 straight days and he has 9 stickers on his potty! I am very proud of the little guy!!! The Christmasy stuff can wait.
