Budget is a four letter word!!

That's why we prefer to call it a cash flow plan. I can't take credit for that it's a Dave Ramsey thing. All that being said, I worked out the "cash flow plan" for October. what a giant pain in my butt!

I think that DH is allergic to the check book or something. I the non college graduate, that never took an accounting class (unlike some members of this family) have to play checkbook and CFP(okay its a budget it sucks and its a pain)
I know that now that I have it all figured out and the numbers all work and I have planned for everything I can think of then...

A) The kids will need some outrageously expensive thing for school (and they need it yesterday)

B) I will break something, become deathly ill with something that only really expensive medicine that my insurance company wont cover will fix, I will break/lose a tooth

C)The car will die

D) Some long forgotten medical bill will pop back up and they will demand payment 3 months ago

E)All the really cute fabric that they only have just a little of will go on sale at a great price but I only budgeted $40 for fun things.

So I am waiting for the earthquake, flood, tornado, typhoon or other disaster to strike any time now that the CFP(budget) is done and printed off.

I reached a miles stone!

This quarter I earned my saphirre star pin in my Mary Kay business! (Yes I know the one I found a picture of has a ruby in it I was almost there maybe this quarter)
I am excited about being a star consultant. I have been having a lot of fun with this and I hope I can achieve my goal
(I am earning the money for new boobs!)
(I know I know every Mary Kay lady you know wants to tell you about earning a car or paying for a trip to Hawaii but I just want new boobs)
So wish me luck and if you need any Mary Kay you can always use the link on my sidebar to go to my webpage and I will hook you up :O)

Preschool fun!

In preschool Wade is learning the alphabet...
so during the first week he learned that A is for astronaut.
Last week he learned that B is for bread and we went on a field trip to Great Harvest Bread Company. I got a loaf of dill bread, I was totally in heaven and I had major carb overload when I ate the whole loaf in 3 days.
This week is C I can't wait to see what cute things Miss Cindy comes up with.

Trying to get my life back on track

So I started back to the gym yesterday because I am tired of being sick and tired so I decided I was going to try to get back into a "normal" life again.
Okay my life has never been normal but as close as I can get.
I managed 45 minutes on the bike and 60 crunches I felt good when I left I wasn't sore I wasn't exhausted (that came later)
SOOOOO I wake up today and my ab muscles have decided to protest the idea of 60 crunches, they are so sore I can hardly sit up from laying down.
I am going to show them who's boss and go back tomorrow but I think I may cut it down to 30 crunches and work my way back up again until they feel better.
I am such a baby!

My baby is getting so big!

Wade had his first soccer game today, it is adorable they play 3 on 3 on miniature fields. they have no idea what they are doing. They ran and chased the ball sometimes an other times they just stood there cause the coach had told them to stay put while they did the kick after a goal.
Its is adorable to see him in his little uniform but kinda melancholy too. He is my baby I am not sure I am ready for him to be doing all this stuff!

Road trip this weekend!

So I made a wild run to Idaho this weekend I drove to Boise and back in a matter of 36 hours. about 4 1/2 to 5 hours each way. I did it alone (yea me!) I meet some ladies that I had met on line but never in person. It was great we sewed and we giggled and we shopped! I had a great time. Thanks Spud's for your hospitality and a great time.
