GBU - December 4, 2011

The first one of December!!!!

The Good: 
  • Minus 1 stocking stuff, my Holiday shopping is done!
  • Work was boring this week, but it allowed my brain to slow done a bit.
  • The house is Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas.
  • G-man found a great birch log for the Yule Log.
  • A neighbor offered to cut up the fallen tree in our yard (I made him dinner as a thank you).

The Bad:
  • Grocery Budget is non-existent until payday.
  • I paid the water bill....$338....which now will throw off the money for tax bill for the car that I was hoping to pay in December instead of January.
  • G-man now knows what half his gifts are for Christmas (due to my mistake).
The Ugly:
  • Can't find a babysitter for next weekend, which means I will probably have to miss a party (G-man will go, as it is hosted by people he works with).
  • My "simple" way of handling all the transfers blew up in my face and it took me several hours to figure it out.
  • At least four strands of Christmas lights have decided to meet their demise this year (1 is totally dead.  3 are half dead...and yes, we tried replacing bulbs).

I am trying to remember that this is only the first weekend of December, and I am not behind!!!

You know the deal....what are your GBUs this week?????


  1. Hmmmmm let's see:
    Good - I have a Christmas spending plan! My heating bill was only $45, I accidentally overpaid my cell phone bill last month so this month it's only $15!; going out for dinner tonight with my brother and sister-in-law! Going to see Prince tomorrow night!
    Bad - slept in til 10:30 today ( too much fun last night!); pouring down rain today - the gloom is giving me a headache.
    Ugly - way overspent on entertainment this weekend - not a good start to the PLAN (see Good above!)

  2. We get billed every 6 months, and typically it is about $200-$220. Refilling the pool after we had the pool liner replaced......and here we are....$338.

  3. Good - I'm graduating this week! I got a $506 Christmas bonus, so I can meet my December debt goal AND buy awesome Christmas presents for the fam. My week and a half vacation starts this Thursday!

    Bad - I am so behind on household chores that I don't think I'll ever catch up. Every time I leave the bed I'm reminded of how much I have to do. So... Can I just stay in bed forever?

    Ugly - The cats' litter box. 'Nuff said. I'm also in the process of scanning last years APs at work. I need to take a picture of my desk. Huge stacks of paper EVERYWHERE. I'm hoping the mess encourages me to get it done quickly.

  4. I'm jealous that your shopping is nearly done! And wow that's a big water bill!

  5. Good: program done for upcoming show. choreography look okay.Shop is busy.

    Bad: Too many costume boo boo's that have to be done, shop is busy.

    Ugly: I have done no Christmas shopping, bedroom downstairs is still torn up, shop is busy.
