When I tell you I have not sat down since Thursday....I mean it. I seriously have been so busy, that my butt has not graced a chair.
Thursday: Work, PTA meeting, kid HW, PTA meeting
Friday: Breakfast and Mosaics with a friend, 7 hour PTA event
Saturday: Errands from 9am-3pm (including a 2 hr round trip deal to get a free carpet); 4 more hours of PTA stuff and kid stuff
Sunday: 2 hours of PTA, 4 loads of laundry, cleaning, finished kids project, MORE PTA stuff.
Monday: At the school at 8am....for you guessed it....PTA! Followed by work. And then afterschool....kids and I have to run some more errands, then HW, blah blah blah.
I love being involved in my kids' school, and co-chairing an event is ALOT of work. But I love it. What I don't love it when my lack of planning for other stuff impacts the budget! Like, our food bill this weekend was insane from "grab and go." I haven't done the math yet, but it isn't pretty.
Plus, I was going to buy Sassy's new winter coat on line (on sale and I had a coupon). I waited to long, and now her size is out of stock. So now, I have to run to the only store I could find that had the coat (and I am not sure it will even fit!!!). And since I will be there, I will pop into 2 other near by stores to get the OTHER sale stuff I haven't had time to fit into my life.
Oh, and we still don't have food in the house.
Oh, and with 3-paycheck month starting next week...we are strapped for cash. So some things have gone on the Credit Card. I hate that I did it. But I did. Slap me around, and let's move on.
The frenzy that my life takes on sometimes is way too much. And if I don't plan right, the budget is the first thing to suffer. Like I just realized I still need to get G-man's birthday presents....and need to figure out where THAT money is coming from. Oh, and we have a minor insurance issue.....a subject of another post.
