Getting children ready for a new school year requires a lot.
Completing enrollment forms;
Paying enrollment fees;
New PE Uniforms;
Appointments for Physicals, Eye Check, Dental check-ups;
What did I forget?
Lawman and I have taken care of all of the above. It requires lots of time. Lots of dollars. $ Cha-Ching $
I did the last of the school supply purchasing on Sunday. When I got home I announced that I was instituting a spending freeze. I'm tired of the money just flowing out of our checkbook. So, we agreed that for the rest of the week we would write no checks and only spend the cash that was in our wallets.
We ran out of milk tonight. Lawman is taking a debit rebate card that has just enough left on it to buy 1 gallon. Ok, I thought. We can do this.
Maybe not. One of our toilets just broke. It's not the kind that you can just run to the hardware store and buy replacement parts for.....it's a power-assist. Requires a plumber. I don't think I have enough cash in my wallet to take care of that. We have 2 other bathrooms that are in working order....do we put it off until next week?
