Website ate my entry

July 14th, 2005 at 03:33 pm

It's been awhile since I posted. I actually wrote an extremely long post last week but it was lost somehow when I hit the Add Entry button.

The bad news is: we have less money right now than we have in about 3 years. I didn't think we'd make it this low but it was a combination of things that brought us down.
Husband is working every OT hour he can get. He's had 3 this week and is working another tonight.

I got my first freelance job today which should cover the cost of the class I had to take for it. I'm so happy !! I didn't think I would get that particular job, I was first told I couldn't due to payment reasons and it came through in the end. Ask and wait and ye shall receive.

We've spent under $35 on groceries for the last 2 weeks which is excellent. I'd like to use the extra as principal payments on many loans we have, but DH convinced me to use it for building our savings back up.

We're going to a company-related BBQ on Saturday. We'll bring the potato salad. I think we end up eating more than we bring price-wise, so these are frugal and fun.

I sold a few more books and listed 4 more on half.com. One book of poetry that I bought for fifty cents years ago turns out to be out of print and is worth $35!! I keep checking every few hours hoping that someone will buy it. That would be awesome.

Ok, off to work some more on my freelance gig.
