Weekly Updates (Spending & Money Goals)

I'm finally over the being sick hump, and not a moment too soon with the LA Marathon only 6 days away. I'm finally off the night quil and the cough drops and I'm happy to report that I have made my fundraising goal of $2,500 to find a child a home :)

The hubby and I ended our week puppy sitting and came home with an extra $90 for our last minuet efforts which will help with paying my car registration dues and a little shopping we did since we had a
0% off kohls coupon that could be paired with a $10 off $25 that we got in the mail. (and don't worry, we bought necessities with it).

I finally got my HUGE awaiting paycheck with about 12 hours of overtime on it-- but this cash won't make it to our slush fund. In an effort to make my marathon fundraising goal, the hubby and I started to match a few donations to help motivate people and the money came pouring in. In about 3 days I went from $1,300 to $2,500.00-- No Joke- I work with AWESOME PEOPLE. So the $265 that was on it will be going to Child Share :)

SCB is doing better on the health side as well and I think being home will do him some good and help straighten him out.

We had some really random good weather and I spent my first 2 days off in a row relaxing. I forgot what its like to not work 6 days a week. Finally got a full day of church in and noticed how much I really missed it.
