A new month to try not to spend through
Tomorrow, it'll rain - actually, it's going to start here any minute according to radar, but also tomorrow - and then Monday - Friday? Rain likely.
Rain tends to keep me home, though, and if I'm home - and DH is home - Lowe's profits and stock will drop for a bit.
I haven't been across the river in several days, DH says it's receding nicely. I hope we don't get so much that it reverses that trend.
Help, I have potatoes and garlic and don't want to make garlic mashed potatoes. Hmm. Some days I feel creative and some days...
Oh! I got a raise. I don't even have an active contract, just work 5 days a week and turn in my time, and lo and behold... I don't know why. It's not as though there are other companies breaking down my door trying to get me to go to work for them. I'm a bit past 'middle aged' with a really limited skill set. Didn't turn it down, mind you
Still have kids to put through college. DH will graduate with his masters 3 months before the first kid starts college; DH's schooling is paid for by his employer. The kids we want to try to put through loan-free, so they won't be in their 40s finalizing their schooling or paying anything down. Though I think it's been good for them to see how much he values the opportunity and works hard - straight A's. He says he was a screw up as a kid (not great grades, dropped out of his 19-year old bout of college), the idea of a masters with honors makes him laugh.
