I'm stressing myself out about money again, even though I am trying to relax a bit about it. I always have this feeling of dread, like something bad is going to happen, and we're going to end up homeless or something. Not that that would likely happen, but it's how I get when I am stressed out about money. I really can't change what is, but I am striving to spend less and earn more to reduce my stress.
I've had a toothache since Friday, and I know it won't be good when I finally do go to the dentist. I have an exposed broken molar, and the molar beside it is cracked, almost in half. For the most part they don't bother me, but it will be an expensive fix. $1200 that I just don't have right now. And that's the amount I will have to pay after insurance. Grr.
I did pick up some extra work from the 20th - 28th, and am looking forward to it. I pray that I can earn enough money that week to pay the rent for a month. :)
I've been reading and knitting lots this week. Sometimes it's easier for me to escape reality inside a good book than to worry about things that I can't really do anything about right now. I'm making progress on an afghan that I am working on. Hopefully I can have it done by Christmas.
Cub's sitter wants to start potty training this week, which ought to be interesting. He has no interest in using the potty whatsoever. I've cut down his liquid intake in the evenings so he won't wake up soaked in the middle of the night anymore. I've never trained a boy before. Any method suggestions that have worked for you?
DD1, her BF and grandcub are coming over today for Indian Tacos and watching the Season 2 premiere of The Walking Dead. I miss having all my family together and it will be nice to have a crowded, noisy apartment for the evening.
I haven't been focusing on my Top Ten daily, and the house is definitely reflecting that. I have got to get doing the laundry, or we'll all be wearing shorts and tank tops this week. :( I just have no motivation to get things done.
I have got to go to the grocery store today. It's not going to be a fun trip at all. Wish me luck.
P.S. Hubby owes me a million dollars. This morning when Cub came into our room at an ungodly hour, I thought "Yay! It's my day to sleep in!" After prompting Hubby to get up, he rolled over and said, "I'll give you a million dollars if you get up with him". I waited thinking that he would still get up, but instead it was me givng cub breakfast before 7 a.m. I'll take a money order, please.
