Thankfully it is Wednesday and payweek! It's amazing how a lot of our focus is on when we get paid. Remember Mom & Dad said you'd better be saving for a rainy day?
I do have some savings, don't get me wrong. Which is why I like it when payday comes around. I am sticking to my plan of saving a certain amount of money each month....so far so good except for the last "Mr Man Episode" in April. I am also sticking to spending the available funds instead of dipping into the savings.
My newest endeavor will be to save Miss T's money from July thru December of this year. (Remember her bio-dad is deceased :} - that's a good thing). A lot of cha-ching is spent on her dance needs - tuition, shoes, attire, etc. Now she wants to consider taking tap again........that will only add one more to her schedule of ballet tech/lyrical, acrobatics, and jazz. She has also asked about another solo and maybe a duet with her friend.
OK those last statements might just kill the newest endeavor all the way around.
Nevertheless, I'm going to give it a try.
Miss T has officially passed 4th Grade.......and is already talking about the 5th Grade Dance (!) and what to wear and who to go with......................
Which has brought up a recent question from her....."Mom, when do you want me to have a boyfriend?"
Well of course my answer was "When you're 20" but she didn't seem to think I was serious. So I said the usual "you shouldn't be worrying about that....you should concentrate on YOU and school and just having fun, not getting all caught up in some stinkin boy"...that kind of stuff. Then I gave her my real answer (which is really still 20) and told her oh about 16.
I keep saying that I wish I had not dated until I was 30!
I like Dr Phil's comment. Sometimes I say it to myself!!
