Today we went to Fareway and I tried to round and keep track of how much I was spending. Some items I rounded up, some down to hopefully get close. I was guessing $71 or $72. My total was $71.49. I was pretty impressed with myself. Apparently enough so that I felt the need to blog about it.
We are in the process of switching from our Verizon plan (who I have been with since I was 16 – 11 years!) to t-Mobile pay as you go because it’s a much better deal for us. We really don’t need as many minutes as we did on Verizon’s lowest family plan. I got phones at Target last week and went to exchange Mike’s. I had bough him the cheapest phone, thinking he’s upgrade to an unlocked iPhone when he had the money, but he decided not to and wanted a keyboard. The cheapest with a keyboard (like mine) was sold out. And on sale. Wal-Mart wouldn’t match it because it wasn’t in the paper ad. Butts. So Mike is phoneless until I figure out what to do…cuz I’m cheap and don’t want to pay $10 extra at WM. We can switch out the SIM cards on my phone and check his stuff though, I guess. Mine is still in the process of acquiring my Verizon and isn’t working to make calls/texts. They screwed it up the first time, so only Mike’s got moved. Here’s hoping it gets done today! I’m tired of carrying 2 phones (my old and new) never knowing which will ring at me. And that’s my phone saga, in case anybody cared.
Mike’s been having a rough few weeks. Not feeling well. I hate it. There’s nothing I can do to make him feel better and that just stinks. Christmas will probably make it worse because he always needs a day or two to recover from events like that.
Ki is reading like gangbusters! He’s starting to pick up books on his own and read them, instead of me making him spend time reading. LOVE it! He reads to Ella a lot, which is adorable (and handy). 😉
Ella is a little chatterbox/copycat/nut. She is too funny. She basically follows Ki around and makes messes all day. And colors and begs to paint. Cute girly.
I’m getting close on Christmas presents. I’ve slacked the past few evenings. I’m down to the boring finishing touches. I need to buckle down and finish up tonight! Hopefully. Almost a week early, though! This is improvement.
