Generous friend

December 21st, 2008 at 07:34 am

Last night our friends came over. We had made the NO CHRISTMAS gifts rule very clear. And they're probably the only people who know us in real life who know our crummy financial situation.

Well, when our one friend handed my husband a card and me a card, I figured it was just that, a card. But no! There was $50 cash for my husband and.... a $100 gift certificate to Wegmans, absolutely the BEST supermarket ever. I LOVE it there, they have the most amazing wonderful food. And although they do have great sales from time to time, their prices are still miles above Aldi's or Save A Lot, so I haven't been there in ages. I'm looking at the sale paper now trying to figure out how to make the most of this. She made me promise to buy at least one extravagant meal that I never would spend the money on otherwise and can't wait to find something really good to make. : ) She's awesome.

I have so much to do today. Yesterday the husband was having a good health day (he's had a few this week, and I can't tell you how good it's been to have him "back") and I had a shorter day at the second job, and we spent hours and hours cleaning and organizing the house. AHHHH, it's SO CLEAN (although I keep noticing stuff that needs to be done, LOL). I love it! I made a box of stuff that I want to put on eBay, so I might do that later today. It just really improves my mood to have things no so cluttered around here.

We've had tons of snow lately... ugh. More to come today.

I deposited my bonus check on friday... it was for $640, or something like that. Today I really have to sit down with the bills and figure out how to make the best use of it. I already paid 100$ towards the overdue electric bill. Now I have to figure out what else.... *sigh*
