Hello Everyone! And anyone who is still reading this…..
It is May! Halfway through May, actually. I have been gone for a long time, and I will continue to be gone because HOLY CRUD I’m busy!
My first semester is finished! I had 2 midterms and 3 final exams, along with countless essays, but I have succeeded in passing (and beyond) everything! I’ve started my second semester already, and am already a little bit behind (yay, progress!) so I’ll have to keep this brief.
I don’t even know the last time that I posted, but Ally and I went to the dentist back in April for a check up, and she has super awesome teeth! I, on the other hand, have subpar teeth and have already had a cavity filled ($115) and have an appointment that is up and coming for another two cavities to be filled in one go ($230). Yay for poor hygeine! Seriously, kids, brush AND floss. God, I suck at flossing. Why would I include the cost for these fillings? Why, because I am SUPER without benefits, and this is the actual cost out of pocket for me because I was brushing my back teeth poorly. I suppose.
I have received financial aid for going to school and such, and therefore have budgeted for the entire year. WITHOUT extraordinary expenses, I will have $66.24 left in January of 2014. *crosses fingers for no extraordinary expenses*
Edie (our dog) has just recently been to the vet to have some bloodwork done ($45) that will okay her for heartworm, tick, and flea medication ($190) for this summer, that the vet’s office has been kind enough to call me and let me know that I can come pick up and pay for it at my earliest convenience.
In better (although not cheaper $$$) news, both girls are starting soccer soon (which involves the purchasing of bus tickets for the days that Phil takes the car to work with him), we are planning the kids’ birthday parties for this summer, planning on attending the annual fair that we always go to, and have reservations for a campsite for our family camping trip this summer!
I found out recently that my common-step-sister-in-law is newly pregnant. Yay! Also, *jealous*. True story.
Immediately, Ally is at school, Kira is napping, and I am making flour tortillas so that we can have tacos for dinner. Seriously. If you want to try them, here’s the recipe that I found on the interwebs: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Homemade-Tortillas
Other than my wrist hurting from using the rolling pin so much, they seem super tasty and easily roll-able. Wooooo!
I DO still think of you guys!
P.S. What happened to the Dashboard? Everything has changed!
