Expensive Morning

I spent $150 this morning all before 1030.

I filled the Es-cah-pay with gas, and that was $45 plus change. Got a pack of smokes: $4 and some change. Spent $100 at Target. THAT was fun.

Most of the stuff was for Livvie. I got her 4 long sleeved shirts, another pair of jeans, formula, wrapping paper, bows, a birthday card (her birthday is Sept. 12th) a book and a Frisbee. I also got cat food and pet stain remover. And I KNEW it was going to be $100 before I even got to the register. I hate being right.

I almost got her The Little Mermaid on DVD, but I really can't stand the message it presents that only a man can give you your voice, so I abstained. Also, it's yet another movie showing a jealous, middle aged woman attempting to destroy a young girl's happiness. Does she really need that?

Tomorrow I have to spend another $100. I have to get heartworm prevention for the dogs. Two boxes come to $98. At least they last 6 months.

Livvie is really digging her Frisbee. She's carrying it around everywhere. Best dollar I ever spent I think.

There's a Dirty Jobs marathon on all day today, so that's how I'm going to spend my day. What are your Labor Day plans?

Have a great one.

Some days the money just flows out like water you can't stop.

What to do today? Try not to call in the slapmobile, or kill and woodchip husband, or start fight, one of those days.

Maybe just smoke some ribs and then make corn pudding in the crockpot. Beer would be nice. Playing with Coonlet would be lovely.

Have a lovely one, girl.

I like shopping and buying things, but I always feel a little guilty when I spend so much money on... stuff.

I'm spending my labor day getting organized.

Ooo, guess what!? My birthday is also September 12th! It is the best birthday ever, and I'm happy Livvie gets to enjoy her whole life's worth of birthdays celebrating the perfect date on which to have been born. She chose very well. Give her a little fist-bump for me, her fellow Virgo, then a nice hug, please. Thank you :)

You have a good day too :-).
I am in creative bliss, painting the day away and then doing a movie with a friend tonight.
