Well that is unless you call this weather ugly. Its been so cold here again. I know 50s isn't bad but when the nights are still in the 30s and you have frost on your windows in the Am. Baseball games have been brutal. I am a die hard mom who tries to attend all games and yes I sit out in my lawn chair freezing. We have 2 more games this week and the wind is suppose to whip and the temps the same. Then next week it will hopefully get warmer or maybe I am wishing it will be. I guess that is Minnesota living.
Now the Good, I have to say just when you are over worked, under paid, stressed out, and about to give up on a job they never sees to amaze me. We have been short handed at one of my job so we have all been getting OT (yes nice on the pocket book) for a few weeks now. Its at a group home for adults with disabilities. So this job is already stressful as you have behaviors. So after many weeks of being stressed I started to evaluate my finances and my job and weighing them out. Some how my job must have know as yesterday I got a call to come to the office, now I am freaking out thinking I am getting wrote up or fired. But no my manager hands me an envelope. I look inside to find a NICE snowball. They gave us a $100 bonus for working to hard and being so understanding. Well that helped with the stress and I guess I will keep the job. Then I get to work at the house and the house manager tells me that I get to enjoy the night at some Harlem Globetrotters. YUP I got to work and see some entertainment.
The bad, my DH just can't figure this budget thing out. UGH!!! So I work about 80 hours a week, now 24 of them are overnights and we get to sleep. But when I work the evening shifts my DH seems to think he needs to go out to eat. Heck not even when I am working but also at baseball. For examples Monday evening we had a game and he could not go do to his work schedule. So when I get home I ask what he made for supper, McDonalds. Then last night I ask him again when he had, he went out. Asked how he paid, he tells me he used his debit card since he just got paid. Normally he would use his blow money but he is out of it already. He will get more today when I do the bills. I asked him why he didn't eat at home and his reply floored me. He said I wanted eggs. UMMM I think we just got eggs at the store on Saturday and HE GOT THEM so he could not have forgotten. Tonight we will have a nice little talk about BUDGET and eating out. It will go something like this, either you use your blow money and have less this week or we just don't eat out together. UGH!! So frustrating.
