July 8- I've hurt my back somehow and am hoping to be able to get a doctor's appointment tomorrow. So we've stayed at home and I've been able to take it easy. Taking a look back at last week, I'm recommitting myself to no spend. No Starbucks, no new clothes, no magazines. Groceries and gas only.

Okay, I might get flamed to hell for this. But here goes. Sometimes playing with my kid is boring. Don't get me wrong, I love my kid fiercely and I do play with him a lot. But how long can you stand there and push a swing without having a breakdown? So we do those things, within a certain time limit. My husband and I do let my kid play by himself a lot too. I think it does him good to learn how to entertain himself, so he's not constantly looking at me or my...

No, I don't regret DS's name a bit. I always knew that if I had a boy, I was going to use my mother's maiden name as his name in some way. It ended up that DH chose DS's first name, and my mother's maiden name is his middle name. It suits him, and as other posters mentioned, it works well for a child and a grownup (being on graduation/wedding announcements, business cards...)
Oh, yeah. I forgot. Way to go Valerie on the bread baking! I love the way the house smells when homemade bread is in the oven.

Isn't there a Get Paid To (GPT) area at the WAHM Well forum? I'm not sure, because I've never done it, but I seem to recall others talking about it. Maybe you could check there?
