Journal Entry for Thursday, March 10th

It's been what a week or two? yes, I need to catch 
up on a lot of things. So we got the refund on Friday
and what did I do with it? Well, I knew we had to 
pay our rent since the last day to have it in is the 5th.

So I paid our rent $940, paid the electricity bill $260, 
bought a $299 laptop/notebook for Ami, went shopping 
for meat to stock up in the freezer which was about $160
something, filled the car for $60. Treated the kids 
out to Jack In The Box for $30 which is pretty 
rare and never should've happened, since I'm trying
to pinch pennies. lol.. snatched up this pine bunkbed 
at Walmart for $189..that's a deal. bought me a shirt 
for $13 while we were there and some clothes and 
backpacks for the kids which ran us about $388 to
gether with a new vacuum and console table for the 
living room.  I paid our fast offering on Sunday. which 
felt really good.

So that's what happened over the weekend. This 
morning I just rose up at 6:30 am to get Loni ready
for school and will clean house. I didn't tell you that
two weeks ago I received my order from Avon and
remember when I said that my goal was to pass out
400 books was going to happen? well, somehow 
my order got messed up and I ended up with 1000
books and over 30 boxes of books from Avon. 

I'm still trying to get those all passed out. sheesh, 
I don't think I'll ever try that one again. DH is 
really upset over the books and boxes piled up in 
our living room. so lately I have spent sleepless
nights staying up and writing my info. on each book.
Which hasn't been good for my blogging,
so far I've only passed out 300 books. Looks like
I have to make a call to return the rest of the books
since I don't have the time to finish passing them 
out. lol..I have reviews that still need to be posted
and products that need to be tested. I got two done
yesterday and posted up..which I'm really happy 
about. How is your week going?
