The wintertime pinch

This time of year, every year it happens. After a summer where the tourists come and have more brains that money and overtime is abundant..... eventually they all go home and the money pinch starts.

This year seems to be hitting harder than most. This pay period we will live on $100 for 2 weeks. *sigh*

It will all work out, it always does. But it's frustrating inthe meantime!!!

This evening will be busy. We will have parent teacher conferences from 5-6, then I have to get home and get Hailey dressed (well, she dresses herself hehe) and prettied up for her choir/band concert at 6:40. We are gonna end up eating dinner at like 4:30 so assuredly we will spend the second half of the concert hearing "I'm hungry" from the small set. Maybe I'll stuff some snacks in the diaper bag........ that'll shut 'em up.

Had to take Hailey into urgent care last night. She has pneumonia..... how great. So she's on zithromax for 5 days and codeine to sleep at night. She still wants to go to school, bless her litlte heart. She's loving school now that she's really busted her butt and gotten her grades up. All A's and B's! She's in special education but has done all of this in the MAINSTREAM classroom! Couldn't be more proud of her.

Anyway. Sorry the updates have been sporatic lately. I've been spending a lot of time working on Alex's new site. Go check it out! And don't forget to print off a few copies of the Random acts of kindness graphic..... giving is good! www.alexandersheart.blogspot.com
