Feeling out of control

March 19th, 2013 at 07:16 am

Youngest is home sick today with a sore throat. I'm hoping it's not strep. Already called the school to get his make-up work, so I will pick that up when I get daughter this afternoon.

Money also seems out of control. I spent some money on something that wasn't a neccesity and am feeling guilty. Even my kids have "gotten on" to me about it. Oh well. Yes we can afford it. No, I shouldn't have purchased it.

I really need to get groceries today. I have been putting it off for several days. Everyone keeps saying there is no food in the house, but suprisingly we still have a great dinner each night.

Prom for my two oldest is this weekend. Boys are so much easier than girls. Rent tux...check! Girls on the other hand....buy dress, shoes, hair, make-up, etc...just a little stressful.

I plan on paying bills today and going over the budget if I have time. I have a full plate today and a sick one so maybe tomorrow. Smile

Take care everyone and have a great day!

    Wow is it Prom season already? This year is just flying by.

    Is there something you can do to bring in some unexpected money to offset the guilt of the unexpected purchase?

    Quit beating yourself up over the purchase. It would be different if you didn't have the money...

    As for groceries, it is easy to complain there isn't anything to eat when in reality, it isn't what they want to eat. Mike Royko was a columnist for a Chicago paper and he did a column one time on grocery shopping. Every week he would buy convenience foods, then chicken, vegetables, etc. He had a freezer full of chicken and the vegetables spoiled. He discovered that his kids complained when there wasn't any food that it meant it wasn't the convenient type. So, he made a new rule no grocery shopping until the fridge and pantry were bare. He said some of the last couple of meals were bizarre, and his kids often found friends who would let them come to dinner, but he thought it made sense to use up what he had. :-)
