Where did the time go?

June 25th, 2013 at 11:56 am

Wow! Long time no post!! Time gets away from us no?
DD went to a slumber party back at the end of May that I had to shell quite a few bucks out for. Her swimsuit didn't fit but luckily I found one for $9.97. and a cheap cover up that can be used as a shirt too. The expensive part was the call I got at 10:30 that night DD had gotten hit in the mouth by a Wii controller and had a huge chip out of her tooth. We had to take her to the ER to control the pain and got her into the dentist the next day to the tune of $372! Too many girls at the slumber party I think! LOL! They started out with 45 girls at the bday party and 29 spending the night. Except it dropped down to 27 after DD's incident because her little friend wanted to go home too! Bad part is I had to do Care Credit because we didn't have it but if I pay it off in 6 months no interest! Should be no problem!

Other financial news I got a 9% raise that just about covers my car payment. So that was a big boost for us.
DH had to be put on insulin but he applied for some study that puts some kind of pump or medicine in his stomach(not sure about all the details yet!)and he gets paid for doing it so we will see.

So far doing great on the grocery budget this month we are at $248. Hope everyone is doing well!

Happy Tuesday!

    OMG! 45 at a birthday party? Wow! Those parents sure were brave! P.S....glad your dd is ok though.

    Were they able to save her tooth? How did they fix the chip?

    I agree, 45 party guests (and 29 of them sleeping over!) requires a great deal of bravery.

    PNW Mom- I said the same thing! Brave!

    Petunia 100- Yes, there was just a piece chipped out of it and the xrays showed the tooth is ok! I think my DH said bonding as he had to take her because I was working. I think DD and friend felt overwhelmed at that party anyway!

    Welcome back. Glad DD's tooth was ok and 'bondable.' I wonder how you're doing with financial goals? Do you find this site helps you meet your goals?

  5. North Texas Mommy Says:

    Snafu-Thanks! I have tightened the belt so to speak and have curbed my spending but need to get more aggressive on the saving! I am hoping to start saving the amount of my raise each month since I was not counting on that amount when we purchased our car. Of course this will come when I get the Care credit paid off. I believe this aite does help me and the people encourage me!
