Proud momma

October 15th, 2012 at 06:22 am

My oldest son (17) has started buying Christmas gifts already so he's not stuck at the last minute rushing around. I advised him to go to the Dollar Tree to purchase Christmas bags now while they have a good selection. He said he is going to wrap all his gifts with the comics out of the Sunday paper! Wow! He really impressed me with that one. Maybe I will do the same. I get three papers delivered every Suday (coupons) so he should be set. Smile

On another note I developed an abscess tooth last weekend. Talk about pain! Very expensive. Just the dental work and meds will bw around $800. That's after ins too. Hubby had to take time off of work, so there is lost wages also. We are tight this month and ever more so now, but it is what it is.

    The tooth is bad, but I'm impressed by your son. I hope mine thinks like that someday!

    Thanks CCF, I'm feeling better already.

    Thrift, I never would have thought it about my son. When He first got his job he spent money like crazy. Buying video games, fast food, etc. Now he has a truck pymt, gas for his truck to pay for, his phone bill, etc. He has really become more responsible within the last few months. I am really proud of him. Chip off the ole block! Wink He has a written budget that he follows and sticks to it. Sadly he is more responsible than a lot of adults I know.
