Check List

Clean kitchen - Check!

Filed Taxes - Check!

Read - Check!

(Do a little dance.)

I don't have much to write about today because I've been a boring person and didn't pay much attention to my kids today because I was working on working out my finances, which pretty much involved me staring at an Excel spreadsheet trying to figure out what more we can cut from the budget and beginning to think that food and health insurance are waaay overrated!

My husband ran some errands this morning. I had 3 simple tasks for him:
1. Deposit checks at bank.
2. Return library book.
3. Mail state tax return by certified mail, buy a book of stamps, and mail 2 bills.

He did really well with the first two items on the checklist, and he successfully mailed the tax return certified mail, but he neglected to put stamps on the other two letters before mailing them. It was a blonde moment for him (I can say that because I'm a native blonde.) Thankfully the bills weren't due this week. Hopefully they will be returned to us shortly and we will try again in a couple of days- brunette style.

  1. Haha, everyone (native or not) has blonde moments. Like when I scheduled a bill via online banking for a month after it was due. After that I set up reminders so I would at least mail out something to every utility every month, even if it is just the estimated $60.
