Weekly Money Check-Up: 7/9

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on rent and bills and food – oh my!

2. Today I am thankful for my life. It’s easy to compare what others have and become discontent, but when I think of all the blessings in my life, there are just too many to list.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was celebrate my brother-in-law’s 30th birthday in Charlotte! This is the third 30th birthday I’ve celebrate this year and I feel this trend is only going to continue in the next foreseeable future. ;) My favorite part of the weekend was Saturday morning with my sisters, brother-in-law and J laughing and lingering over a breakfast of fruit and waffles.

4. I will consider this week a success if I reply to a wedding invitation, get J’s car inspected, clean/purge closet, and paint my toe nails.

5. This week I am looking forward to cooler temperatures. After temperatures in the 100’s for a week solid, 85-degree sounds like a picnic in the park. And maybe we’ll have one!

  • my favourite free thing this week was a barbecue at my friend’s house! It was such a great time! Ok I guess I paid $15 to bring a case of heineken.. but still, mostly free ;)

    2. Today I am thankful for free candy at CVS!
    3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was taking my daughters to the library to borrow some new books to read for the week. So many of the other moms take their kids to the bookstore.
    4. I will consider this week a success if I finish a project at work – I’m almost there
