Justmama: Wow! That is quite the amazing score!
We are all sick here so I am not able to go to my small Sunday job watching kids today. Sad to see money lost. Then again the church I am working for is small to begin with and the older members are not wanting to be very family friendly which is causing alot of familys to leave. I have a sinking feeling that that job is going to dissappear very soon anyway.
We did find out that the manager above DH is leaving at the end of the month and he will get that job, but we don't know what that will mean money wise. It is likely to be a sizeable raise, but not enough to get us off of FS. However it will be enough that we can actually cover all the normal bills each month and breathe a tiny bit. Either that or it will be just enough to get us off FS and state medical insurance leaving us right where we are now once we pay for medical insurance. Either way it will be a blessing and I am going to keep looking at it that way.
Still have not gotten a journal, but I did find a school compostition book (a slight step up from a spiral notebook) I wrote in a couple times a year or so ago. I may just use that up until I can get something better. I did also manage to get some make up at some good prices too. I have decided that 2013 is finally going to be the year I start taking care of me again, so this is a big step in the right direction. I miss makeup and looking put together. Next step will be to get myself exercising and find some decent clothes that actually fit. We had a Savers thrift store open here a few months ago but I haven't made it over there yet to look for clothes. I've heard they are pretty great trift stores.
