What a Waste of $$

This is a little rant today...please don't read if you want a charming, picture-laden post. It is simply a whine...

I hate spending money on Not Fun Things. Let's see- tampons, toilet paper, underwear for my beasties, undershirts for the beasties, socks for the beasties (unless they are fabulously stripped or argyle), diapers, wet wipes, soap, food unless it is really yummo, electric bills, okay- bills in general, batteries, toilet parts...

I love spending money on Fun Things. Purses, shoes, clothes for myself, clothes for the beasette, clothes for the beasties, even clothes for Kit, yummo treats, hair accessories, ties, earrings, makeup, things to cute-up-my-house, gifts for people...ahhh, just thinking of all the Fun out there just waiting to be bought makes anyone smile...

Until you look at your account and realize you've already spent your money on Not Fun Things!!

Amen to that! I hate it too. It's taken me 2 years to finally get some frames for our family pictures and I still have some sitting on my bed with no frames. It gets so frustrating! I just want one, ok maybe two, checks to blow on fun stuff.

Uhg, I hear you. We are trying to pay off one of Enoch's student loans this year, so that means buckling down on spending. No more spending on fun things for us this year!

To quote the movie LITLE WOMEN: I hate money! Hope your account for FUN THINGS fills up again soon!

Olivia had some medical bills from last September that still come creeping in the mail. I hate ER visits. Hopefully this was the last of them. Goodbye $600. It was nice knowing you for a millisecond.

I'm feelin' ya - although I also hate spending money on "fun" stuff too. Carlin says I just hate spending money. Maybe so...
