Got an estimate to fence in the rest of my yard today (my neighbors on both sides of me and behind me have fenced yards - so I don't need much. The estimate with supplies and labor was very reasonable, so I am going to get it done, as it will give my DS more freedom in the yard...

My dental procedure got approved by my insurance company. Since it will be over $5,000 oop, I scheduled it for mid-October. That way, I figured I could save up $3,500 and pay the remaining balance over 3 to 4 months...

Saturday evening I drove for Uber for the first time. It went pretty well for my first go at it. One driver gave me a $20 tip. Between that and my Mary Kay sales, I should be able to pay off my dental procedure...

I have been really hunkering down on my monthly budget. Although I have been trying to save in all areas, this month I am really focusing on cutting down my food budget. I am trying to use up things that I already have on hand for meals, and just buying milk, eggs and produce...

This morning, I had my regular, dental check-up. My DS played at my friend's house with her kids while I was there. Then, we took the kids to McD's for lunch after I got back. DS and I ran a couple of errands and now he is laying down for a nap. Poor guy was so tired that he could barely keep his eyes open....

On the tap for the rest of today 1) Prepare for my Mary Kay online customer appreciation event that I am having tomorrow night. 2) Make a list for my Target run tomorrow. 3) Run to CVS 4) Attend my weekly Mary Kay training tonight.

Katie I know you will be glad to get home
.

Clippingqueen, good luck saving for your dental procedure. You may want to put ten dollars or so of your grocery budget for loss leaders. Some stores should have some good buys for the Fourth. I have cut my spending on food because we are overstocked but if I find cheap enough loss leaders, I will try to make room. Eating from your stockpile can help in the shortrun but depleting your supplies too much can cost you longterm.

We finished work at the townhouse yesterday. Except for the gutters. I think dh doesn't want to do them, lol!! It felt great to be done with the cleaning, and now all the work is to be done by the realtor. I hope it will sell asap!!

Dh was so busy over the weekend that he was exhausted today. He slept in....he lazed about....basically he ate and ran and chilled. Lol! I'm glad for him! He left a bit ago for work, and should get home just after the kids get in bed. Hopefully we can watch a show before he's ready to zzzzz tonight.

We're supposed to get a ton of rain over the next few days....there's a weather disturbance in the gulf. I don't think it's even a tropical storm, nor a hurricane, but it has tons of rain it is bringing.

My parents are wanting to rent a huge house and do a family vacation again. Sis wants to do the beach, rest of us want the mtns. Lol. Mtns w a river or lake would work for me...then she can get her water! It looks like prolly next yr...so who knows! This summer was SUPPOSED to be a big get together w my dad's side of the family....but no one wants to take the reigns and plan. So I guess we're back to funerals for seeing each other. Grrr. (Honestly, me or one of two of my cousins could do the planning! Any one of us don't mind that kind of thing.)

I cleaned the ceiling fans, top of the bookshelves, and the beam in our lr today....lotsa dust! Achoo! Dh has been having bad allergies IN the house the past couple of weeks, and we think pollen got inside and the ceiling fans were blowing it around daily! Eek! He's been miserable! I still need to vacuum the sofa, and wipe the dust from the piano, but he said he felt better today. Not me....that dust went into my eyes, and my eyes are miserable now! Hahahaha!

I made kielbasa and sauerkraut for lunch today. Dh took some w him for dinner (he ate a brunch around 1130, after his run....told ya he was lazy and slow-going this am.....he's normally done w his run around the time I get out of bed!). Kids ate it for lunch, but I just had a banana....wasn't too hungry. I'll have my sausage and sauerkraut for dinner tonight. Mmmmm!

I pulled 2 pkgs of chicken breasts out to thaw. I'll cook them in the crockpot tomorrow....we might just eat chicken w sides for dinner, then I'll pull the rest of the meat for other meals. Originally, I planned to just pull all the meat....but it will make it easier on me if we use 1-2 breasts for tomorrow's dinner, then pull the rest off for later.
