blah and more blah

I think I got 4 hours of sleep last night.
The boy is starting to feel a little better though. At least he was running around the house playing and giggling right before bed tonite... OH, maybe that means he will sleep tonite! Honestly more for his sake I hope this is true.
Today I spent $24.54 on groceries for the next three days.
This leaves $68.31 in this month's budget in order to come in at $13.50 a day spending average for the year.
I've 14 more NO SPENDs to go for my 104 goal. I'm planning 3 in a row, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.
Today's Christmas craft was on it's way until my son shredded it. However no fuss, it just involved him coloring with red crayons on one paper and brown on another. I'm having him make a small simple gift for each of his cousins. But he decided that the brown paper needed to be demolished. All boy this one (even when ill).


  1. Good to hear your little guy is feeling better. You are doing very well with your December spending.

    1. Thanks. Our little guy has hardly been sick other than a few runny noses and as a mom watching him suffer, wow it breaks my heart. Today his cough is sounding much better too.

  2. I'm going to try and follow your example next year. 104 days of no spending.
    It's going to be a little easier than this year, because my lovely big freezer does a lot for me, in terms of groceries (and freezer cooking, so saving money there)

    1. I think I'm going to shoot for 3 a week next year; 168 days of no spending. I love how it saves me $1 a here and $3 there.

      I'm proud of you for all the freezer cooking! That really is a great way to save money
