Got anything to whine about, girls? I am sure I'll have something come tomorrow. But for now--ten minutes into Wednesday--I'm good.

We keep getting doctor bills! I just started a budget using the envelope system and it's going pretty well. But it only leaves out less than $200 per week which is supposed to be for paying back what I borrowed from the tax return money. Yes, I borrowed money from myself and now I'm paying myself back! But as of right now, it'll take approximately 7-8 weeks to put all that money back in. And that's IF these bills stop coming. We actually got a bill this week from when DH went to the ER in November! Ummm.... where was THAT bill for the last 4 months? It's not like they're huge bills, but they're coming at a time when I really want to be saving as much as I can.

OK... I'm ready to whine! *sigh*

My mean baby didn't go to bed until 11 PM. Which is actually a little earlier than normal. I was up really late--I was so psyched about how well my class went, I guess. So anyway--I go in to bed at about 1:30 AM, and guess who decided at 3 AM that they were waking up and STAYING UP?!!

She did finally nod off again at 6 for a couple hours, but ayeyayeyaye.... I just want a decent nights' sleep already!

I'm so tired. I haven't had a shower yet because my baby is crazy and into everything, the kids' room is a terrible mess... ugh I am so hormonal today....

My DH is still home from work. He should have left like ... three days ago, but won't be leaving now until Tuesday. I had not planned on him being home, so I didn't really have menus or whatever done because it was just going to be me. Then, my lil bro has a week off school for the easter holiday, so he'll be here as well as his girlfriend.

So, tonight, DH looked at me, and said, "What's for dinner?" Um. Eeer. Yea. We're out of almost everything here. So, he wants me to jump in the car and go to the grocery. I try to explain that it takes more time than that. So, I rushed through the ad. I rushed through a list. I rushed through coupons, AND I had to take DH with me to the store. I ended up with a $90 grocery bill, which *could* have been WAY lower, I think. Plus, I have DH wandering around aimlessly either a: getting in my way, b: bugging me about taking too long, or c: putting random non-list items in my cart. Granted, it's his check card that paid for it, but still ... annoying.

Plus, the store was out of 4 of the 5 BOGOs I wanted. Phooey!
