BBQ Dinner

April 18th, 2007 at 09:00 am

I missed updating yesterday. Oops! One of my coworkers has been out all week and I am having to do both of our jobs. Busy, but I like it that way. Makes the time go faster!!

I haven't even had time to balance my checkbook this week! I normally try to do it every day or every other day...just because back before I got on my new financial peace kick I would go a month or more without balancing it. I mean, I would know approximately how much money was available, just from looking online, but I would not actually balance the register and write everything down. I am over that now though...I want to know where every penny is going.

So, I haven't spent too much this week...I will have to post the exact totals later. I didn't even go to the grocery store!! **gasp** I stocked up fairly well last week with all the sale items I bought. I am going to have to go this week...just for breakfast and lunch items probably.

TB only has one clinical left on Friday. WOOT!! I am ready for this to be over with. I don't know if I mentioned it before on here but all of the students usually try to do something nice as a "thank you" to the firefighters/paramedics on the shifts they ride out with. Of course, this is not mandatory...just something nice to do. Well, some of his fellow students have done steaks but we wanted to do something different so we got BBQ catered for their dinner last night. TB was there last night and didn't really want to do it on his last shift. Anyway, they really enjoyed the BBQ and it was a huge hit! I guess that took the place of my grocery budget this week though because it wasn't cheap. $115 dollars for BBQ, sides, rolls and all the trimmings for eleven men. BUT, TB has definitely enjoyed working with these guys and they have really taken him under their wing. And at least 4 of them have told him (on their own, without him mentioning it) that he is doing great and they would be happy to be a reference for employment. That is worth it's weight in gold, in my opinion.

Ok, back to work I go...
