Just Thursday

Outside my window.. sunny, hardly a cloud in the sky at 82 degrees
Today I feel.. tired and cranky
I miss.. my family. Always.
I am thankful.. for our Excel budget! DespiteĀ  getting $100 (dollars) less than expected in my monthly bonus, giving yet another $350 for post-wedding immigration paperwork and spending another $250 at the doctor, in the month of March we still managed to:
  • Have an amazing bday weekend for Jorge
  • set aside $100 for my bday next month
  • set aside $100 for a wedding present IN JULY (we are so far ahead of this game!)
  • spend $120 this weekend in Chabihau (totally worth it)
  • pre-stock up on tons of stuff at Sams Club, like 1 year of garbage bags and 3 months of dog food
  • SAVE $130!!!!
Take THAT, stupid unforeseen expenses!!! I win :)
Tomorrow I am going.. to the gym, then… I dunno.
I am wearing.. my work uniform.
I wish.. I didn’t have to work on Saturday mornings.
My schedule this week[end] includes.. work, relax, work, gym, work… and that’s about it :)
I need to start.. setting up our living room. We have an adorable house, but right now it just looks awful. Gotta paint some walls, hang some artwork (we have awesome artwork sitting in our storage room at the moment), make the backyard dog-friendly (so they’ll stay outside while we’re away and not ruin my furniture), get a pretty tablecloth to cover up the plastic Walmart table, and move the TV downstairs to the living room.
I am reading.. The Ugly American
I am working on.. losing weight! Still going strong at the gym, and people are commenting every day on my weight loss.
I am hoping.. for nice weather this weekend. So far, so good!
I bet you didn’t know.. that our dog Konan is the only one who knows a trick. She can “shake paws”. However, since we always reward her with petting and pats on the back when she does it, she has now started coming up to us and putting her paw in the air whenever she wants to be petted. Last night, she tried to “shake paws” with my foot. Her attempts were unsuccessful.


This weekend.. I’m getting together with KfromMichigan for dinner Saturday night! So excited

 

 

I’m considering doing an end-of-the-month post every month on how our budget went. I know it’s not really Cancun-related, but it might be nice for me to write out our successes and failures minor setbacks. What do ya’ll think? Yay? Nay?
