Wow, after last week’s no spend days this week sucked! Okay not really but still. I forgot that we had a bunch of cards to buy in May (okay we didn’t have to but I like sending cards out. I appreciate getting them so I always try to send them) so that was that $25 at Walgreens.
And my kitty needed more flea medication so we bought the stuff that does three in one. He’s worth every penny we spend on him (even if he is in his punish kennel as I write this) because we love him tons and he’s part of the family.
On Saturday we spent the day at his parent’s pool. Unfortunately for me, I burnt pretty badly on my shoulders and back even though I put sun block on. And I have this strange strip at the top of my forehead that is burnt. But nothing too bad and we spend some money to get the aloe vera stuff to help it out.
And while I didn’t have to spend the money on a haircut, I’ve been trying to grow it out and it needed to be trimmed up from the reverse bob. I was starting to look weird so I just decided to get it all trimmed and angled so I can start on the growing out process. And I’m anticipating this to take a long time as my hair grows so slow.
As for the groceries, I was only $8ish off of what I had budgeted for. Not too bad—next time, it’s down by $25 so crossing my fingers on that one.
There will be a slightly charge purchase most likely on my next spending report. It’s got to do with my car. Hopefully, it only needs the front brakes done. It’s also going to depend on the price that’s quoted too as we only have so much saved up for it.
And besides that, we’ve officially started the Christmas fund with this last paycheck. Go us!
How was your weekend? Anyone else sun burnt? Ps: my alexa ranking is 393,248—so close! Thanks for all your help!
