So we got word this am that our rv is ready...after a yr of not getting to use it. I took dh and the kids to the bigger city to get it, and lo and behold, 11 miles from town, the transmission (that they built/rebuilt TWICE NOW!!!!!) screwed up! Omg! Dh is soooo pissed off! Originally the guy's parking brake repair ruined our perfectly fine transmission. Dh slowly got it home, but now what?! We can't drive it anywhere. We can't sell it. We can't use it. The guy has had his "guy" rebuild/build it TWICE NOW, with it screwing up EACH TIME! What do we do at this point?!?! So our happy excitement from the am is now gloom and disgust and frustration!

I went out alone and putzed a bit. I had $10 in kohls cash, and found another vneck t, in red!, and got it. With the 20% off, too, it cost me $1.73! I grabbed some $2.68 cotton/spandex camisoles at Walmart to wear as shirts with my jammie bottoms. I found ds a men's small khaki shirt at wm to wear with khaki pants, so he can play an Andy Griffith type sheriff in his Xmas play with the co-op. I picked up some khaki pants, too, but realized they didn't have belt loops once I got home.....his shirt tucked into elastic waist pants looked crazy-weird, lol! The shirt is quite a bit big on ds, but finding a khaki colored long sleeved shirt for a boy was impossible! I was lucky to find a men's!! And lucky ds is not too far from that size, lol! (He wears adult small for t-shirts.)

I'm so sleepy now! Been out and about and I need a quick doze to get me thru tonight. And some more moose tracks ice cream! Lol!!!

It's 3:45 am, and I have been wide awake for over a half hour already. Eeek!...

I splurged last night and had a much needed night out with friends. We went to a local restaurant for 1/2 price drinks and apps. Afterwards, I met a couple of other friends at a movie. For a little over $20, I had a relaxing night after a crazy work week...

The past month, I have been tracking every last cent that I spend and reviewing where I am at with my budget at least weekly. It has made a HUGE difference in my finances. I only get paid 1x/month, and am usually getting down to the nitty gritty before payday. This month I actually have surplus and will be able to make a substantial payment on my debt!

We've been diligent on our spending and watching carefully and it really has helped us . isn't it awesome. DH only gets paid 2x a month but this month we weren't scraping barrel until payday. Great work!

After a lazy start to our am, we loaded up the lawnmower, and headed to the townhouse for dh to mow, and me to photo the inside and outside of the house. Our realty contract is up next weekend, and we needed photos so we can list it ourselves. Also we turned the heat on, real low, so pipes won't freeze. I got some good pics, and got a wee bit nostalgic....it was the first house we bought, and our kids were babies in it. Sniff! Little feets running around upstairs and little bottoms bouncing down the stairs! Awww!

Dh needed gas, so we stopped just around the way from the townhouse. The gas station had hunts bros pizza, so dh ordered a pizza for our lunch, and then we went to the playground to play a bit. Dd begged to go....then realized she's really pretty big for playing there, lol! Sadly, they removed the swings, which is something she would still want to do. Our former neighbor ran into dh at the gas station, and he told her we were at the playground, so we got to visit. I adore her!!!! They moved away just around the same time that we did, and we always got on so well!

Then we came home and walked along the side of the road to pick up trash before dh mows. Omg, I never ever knew sooooo many people drink and drive. No clue. We picked up a yard bag FULL of beer cans and bottles. Dh said it's always like that. Oh my. I'm just clueless on that sort of thing! I thought people knew that it is dangerous. Lol on naive me. I also found someone's underwear...didn't touch those! Dh can run over them with his lawnmower. Also didn't touch the hypodermic needle. At least it was capped. But omg. I DID worry that I would find a bottle someone had cooked meth in, but I guess people prefer their Bud and Coors in their cars around here, and not meth. Thankfully. Lol. O.O

The kids are taking turns mowing, and dh is weedeating. I decided to put away the 2 boxes of subscribe and save, and then crawl into bed for an early nap. I was up late last night, then wide awake at 6 for some strange reason, so an early nap might be nice. Or else I just want to be alone just a bit. Lol. And hide from dh wanting me to do more work! Hahaha

I have been having a lazy morning/early afternoon...I did get my meal planning and shopping list done, but have been watching a lot of the Hallmark channel. LOL! ...I am heading to meet a friend for a cup of coffee and then need to go on a Target run. Tonight, I need to finish up my cleaning and laundry since I was lazy earlier today!

Lol, how fun cocoa!!! I love it! Sounds like a fun day, too!

Lol, clippingqueen, I was looking hard on Netflix and amazon last night for a movie to watch, and ended up watching a hallmark-esque Xmas movie. Finally...it took me awhile to find something that was easy to watch and sweet. Most of those kinds of movies I've already watched....and I don't watch a ton of movies and stuff alone, once or twice a month....so Netflix and amazon need to get cracking on putting up some new movies! I also would like Netflix to get in a few more comedy movies.....cause durn....I was struggling with that, too! Lol! Esp when I click on comedy....and I see 4 or 5...then the rest are dramas and sad movies. What?! Lol!

Ugly gray day here in Toledo. Did not sleep last night so I'm trying to stay awake now.

I joined a Facebook group and went to a clothing giveaway. I walked around but only found a pair of underwear until I was leaving and got the fat girl motherload. I got 5 shirts. I was hoping for blankets or sheets or some storage (food) items but nope.

I'm considering skipping thanksgiving at dad's. I'm very depressed and don't feel like faking my way thru the day. I'll sound out the parents tomorrow if its going to be ugly I'll go to keep the peace.
