New Year, New Challenge

January 29th, 2007 at 05:50 pm

OK, so January's almost done, I'm a little late, but I've finally come up with a $20 Challenge for myself. For every day I do not spend money (my allowance not planned expenditures), I will put a dollar in my challenge. That amounts to a maximum of $30/month, but if I don't spend anything in a month, I'll really have $80 saved as that is the total of my monthly allowance. I'll also lose weight b/c I won't be spending money on impulse junk food. Smile Wish me luck!

Got my dress.

We got my wedding dress today! Well, put the deposit down anyway. Mom and Grandma went with me. This was the third place we went to, and the third time I've been back there. I didn't expect to order it today as I had wanted to go to another store to try on a dress in my size that this place didn't have in the proper size. I'd kept going back to this dress when I looked at the pictures. It has a sweetheart neckline with lacy beaded wide straps, but they can make them detachable. We looked at it with veils, and when Mom suggested we put down a deposit, I said, OK. It's beautiful, accents and minimizes where I need it, and I feel comfortable in it. So I decided, it doesn't matter what the other dress looks like. I like this one and no one else is going to see the other one. I've been thinking about this dress since I first tried it on. It was $875, but that will include the alterations. Mom's paying, and she was expecting to spend a lot more. Now to find a veil, and all that other stuff. Yay!

Kostly Kittens

Siren, our baby rescue from September is now a 5lb 4 month old, and rambunctous. Saturday she wasn't active, and not eating much. We'd been monitoring her eye as the ulcer had grown again. She wound up having to go to the emergency vet because she was in so much pain, and it was not the kind of thing that could wait until Monday. The vet wanted to take it out that night, but agreed with us that w/ meds she could last until Monday, at which time we could also have her spayed (emerg vet not equipped), and to come back if the eye ruptured. So she had the surgery Monday, stayed until today, Wednesday, and cost us a grand total of $741, and that's with a 25% discount from our vet, and not getting charged for the office visit at the emergency vet. He knows we take in rescues and currently have two kittens, both with eye issues. I took my part time job to pay for the wedding, but I swear it's really paying for the cats!!! $&*@$&@*($@& KITTENS!
