GBU - August 19, 2012

Still haven't found a new graphic.....

The Good:
  • G-man got his "in-step" raise (2.6% increase...roughly $62 a paycheck)
  • Survived until payday!
  • Got a vintage wooden sled from Freecycle (yay holiday decor!!)
  • Got a "preview" of the kids' teachers....and it is what we wanted.
  • Humidity finally broke and the windows are open!

The Bad:
  • Stores are sneaky...sales BEFORE tax free week.
  • Tire has a gash in it, and needed to put on the spare (will now need to get a new tire!)
  • Lots of weeding to be done on the side of the house.
  • Discovered that Bossy's Santa present idea (portable basketball hoop) is way more expensive than I thought it would be!

The Ugly:
  • Yesterday was the 5th anniversary of our girls' passing.  It was a heavy day.
  • Pre-op appointment....always a rip roaring good time!  And found out I will have to be at the hospital at 5:45 AM!
  • Coveting everything for Halloween at Pier 1!!

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


  1. I hear you on the surgery thing! Got my phone call for my surgery on Tuesday and I have to be there at 6am. I love the fact that it is early, but, the hospital is 2 hours away and I don't get off my shift at work until 12:30am. Yup, that day is going to suck. Not to mention, it's a 3hour surgery and it will take another hour for recovery. I think I may just have to write Aug 21 off lol.

  2. Yay for the raise!!! :) That's awesome!! Kids are excited for Halloween too... We go way out for it too... Last year had people taking pics of their kids in front of our house! lol!

  3. The Good: My Dad and I managed to clear out a good half of the overgrowth in my yard this morning. Temperatures have only hit 90 five days this month. That can only be good for my power bill.

    The Bad: My car is due for some pretty pricey standard maintenance.

    The Ugly: I'm in danger of becoming a hermit between the empty nest and not wanting to spend money!

  4. I thought of you Saturday but was SO swamped. **HUGS**
