Weekly Updates (Spending & Money Goals)

As I'm typing this we have a homemade pizza in the oven and i'm coming off my second 11 hour shift in 2 days... yes second 11 hour shift...

After working a 40 hour work week I just finished another 22 hours over the weekend in my first of 3 lifeguard training courses... and tomorrow I start my next 40+ hour week....

I'm exhausted. But I love my husband because he's fantastic and uber helpful and very good at making dinner. 

To update everyone on SCB's job hunt status, he now has his application in with Apple One but they don't have anything for him yet...  

We also decided to take some time to play a bit this week before the crazy weekend of work to help with our sanity. We made it through out No Spend week with only getting gasoline for SCB... and I guess I must have miscalculated our expenses earlier in the month because we ended the month with +$7 after gasoline for SCB to get to his Apple One interview.

  1. Wow I'd be exhausted! That's a lot of hours. Sounds like a fun day at the park.

    1. Tell me about it. Just when i was getting my voice back from being sick--- i'm now hoarse from all the lecturing I had to do... It will be forever and a day before i'll be able to sing again at church and not sound like a tone deaf frog.
