Trying to be Self-Supportive

February 12th, 2009 at 12:21 pm

My mom has paid for my daughter to do cheerleading for almost 2 years now. She also pays for the violin lessons. Each of these is $95/month. I told my mom this morning that I will start paying for the cheerleading each month. I have worked it into my budget and I assured her that if I couldn't do it one month, I would let her know. She seemed a little relieved, but also disappointed. My parents are retired and their income has reduced due to the stock market. So they are stressed each month. However, I think my mom ENJOYS paying for things because she thinks it keeps her involved. Eventually I would like to pay for the violin lessons as well...but baby steps.

I ate out again today. I had a dr appt in Atlanta so I grabbed Chik-Fil-A on the way home. We dont have one of those here. Lately my willpower for eating out has been non-existent. I need to get back on that band wagon!

My appointment went well. I am going to have surgery to remove the endometriosis in April.

I have increased the amount of the automatic deposit into the kids savings accounts to $20 per pay period. Hopefully I wont miss it.

Finally got some items listed on ebay. I really need to spend more time on them, but end up hastily posting them. Maybe I can take a Saturday and get everyting posted. I don't think we have anything going on this weekend.

    I have a weakness for Chik-Fil-A also. Smile

    I love Chik-Fil-A too. Did you know that they are giving a little something away free each day this week? I stopped by yesterday and got a free ice cream! Yum! I think the sign said it was a bowl of fruit today and a nut brownie tomorrow. My mom gave us two Chik-Fil-A calendars for Christmas and every month has a coupon. Anyway, just thought I'd share.

    We recently got a Chic-fil-a by my house and boy do I wish it didn't move so close... too tempting!
