I don’t know about you but I’m feeling the pinch! Can the end of the year get any more expensive?
NO! Don’t answer that!
Adding up fast:
Extra Groceries/Extra for baking
Medical Costs, Hospital/Anesthesiologist/incidentals (I have no idea what the total will be as of yet)
I want to get back to my regular old monthly budget. Whaaaa! But in the meantime I am trying very hard to keep my food budget down and also every other expense down that I can manage.
This is the first year I did not put up Christmas lights because my electric bill goes thru the roof!
Yesterday I did more baking, I can’t even count how many I have baked, 9 maybe? That sounds about right!
Today I got the Crockpot going! My kid really likes this and I like it because its done when she gets home and the house smells like I’ve been cooking all day.
Yesterday I made chicken broth for the freezer:
I got the stockings up, one for me, my kid and also some for my fur babies!
I got the presents bought and wrapped:
I had a full weekend and I’m not even done! I still have ingredients to make more zucchini bread:
I didn’t even touch laundry either. OMGosh!
And I have to get this package and cards out!
Christmas time is so busy. I don’t know how people with lots of kids do it. I’m dizzy just thinking about it.
I hope you are managing your busy schedule this time of year.
I don’t know why I added a medical procedure to the mix. Not looking forward to that at all!
This month really is going out with a bang. I hope it calms down after this week!
