Part time job!

October 22nd, 2008 at 01:21 pm

Well, I have been quite quiet on the blogs for a while.

I tried starting my own blog, but Wordpress is such a confusing pain to use! Oh well, it was a free attempt and I may still update it till my year subscription runs out.

Anyway, I got the job at my friends store at the mall! Starting Nov. 1 till after Christmas! Woo hoo! This will really help us with Christmas, brakes and keeping up with the bills! I am looking for meal ideas though, because I will be going from one job to another, but I want to leave easy to prepare meals for the family that I can eat when I get home and hope to stay true to the Weight Watchers. I can use the crockpot and premake some other meals, but any ideas??

No heat yet and Pearbudget reality

October 18th, 2008 at 09:44 pm

Yes, we're freezing, but think of the money we're saving!! I'm sure my husband will probably sneak the heat on when I'm at work or something, but we'll see. The whining hasn't revved up enough to crack!

I have been working 5 days a week. Some full time days, some part time days. I have Wednesdays and Saturdays off and really have fallen behind on keeping up with the house. I have been letting eating out sneak back in on us too and this has to stop!!

DH and I have been on Weight Watchers. I have lost around 10 pounds, DH a few more than that.

I downloaded a program called PearBudget that my friend at "I've Paid for it Twice Already" suggested and it looks pretty grim. I am considering another part time job to maybe help add some money to the budget. Not sure what kind of job I can find that will work around the weird hours I already work, but we'll see. I have a friend that is opening up a shop in the mall just for Christmas. Maybe I can work there? Here is the link to PearBudget if you would like to try it out. It is free! https://www.pearbudget.com/spreadsheet.

I have been slowly buying Christmas gifts. I have to sell some more on ebay, so I can buy some more gifts! :-)
