So after the massive and pathetic pity party I threw myself the other day I have been trying to knock the sorry-for-myself crap off. I have always been a fixer and a do-er, so this mopey stuff just isn't me.
Sometimes ya gotta let yourself wallow a bit, just a bit. I think finances can be something that truly overwhelms you if you let it. I feel like I do it all wrong sometimes in terms of how I allocate budget monies for food especially. I don't know how these lunatics can supposedly get $100 worth of groceries for $5.37 because they coupon the shit out of their purchases. Reality is, I think, that those people are merely stocking the crapity crap up and merely visit their bunker house for the zombie apocalypse when they grocery shop. I could be wrong, but it makes me feel better for the time being, so its the plan we are going with.
We did have a birthday party for the Beans, and I managed to do it on the cheap. I am also making him some "toys" I found on Pintercrack ... but in true me-fashion it ain't goin' like I planned ... for example DIY plastic bottle bowling pins that I saw on another blog. So she has these beautiful bottles that look all pretty like this ...
Yeah, I so nailed it.
So I will be trying that again, soonish.
