Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.- Psalm 143:10-11

Surprised to see a passage from the Bible on my blog.
I felt it fitting.
I am putting my faith in Heavenly Father....not that it hasn't always been there.
Raised LDS I was taught that Heavenly Father won't give you anything you can't handle (other religions may teach these as well..I'm not sure).
Anyway....right now we are in a financial pickle.

I have gone over my checkbook with the bank & can not find the mistake but it's looking pretty bleak.
Basically this week, when we each get paid, we will be starting over from scratch.
I'm pretty stressed over it.

I have been excellent at taking my lunch & breakfast to work with me. Not eating out. Sure it's only the 12th day of the New Year BUT by now I would have eaten out at night at least 5x's & had bought my breakfast everyday, not to mention lunch at least 3x's a week. Only having a 30 minute lunch & working in the boonies helps me a lot. I have to bring my lunch or eat WaWa....WaWa rocks but eh, not everyday. The one day I ordered Chinese food from the restaurant around the corner (like 10 mins away), I was finishing up mine when my boss came out to show me the bug that was in his. Yea, not eating there EVER AGAIN!

I haven't bought anything willy nilly. I put back the People mag w/ Britney on the cover & Nicole Kidman announcing her pregnancy today @ Target. At Target I only got what I needed....laundry deteregent & 2 frozen meals. Nothing extra & Target always sucks me in. I really wanted to shop at the mall, feeling as if I deserved something to cheer me up since this financial pickle has me stressed. Then I realize that would only be a short cheer up til I realized what I did, so I only got what I went for, which was to see Old Navy's clearance (got Cheeks a pair of shorts & a t-shirt...all for next summer & winter, for less than $5...yay!). I even returned a shirt to Lane Bryant & got a credit of $20.99 on my cc.

I am going to sell my Little Soul Doll, so if you collect these or are interested, let me know & I will send you a pic. There should be collectors items at this point, since the maker is no longer making the catalogue dolls, just one of a kind.

I was going to scrap tonight but have no drive or creativity flowing tonight. Had a yummy lunch at Applebees with the Grandpop today.

Miss Bobster!!

On that note........Woops out!



I completely understand the financial mess thing. We've been in one for months and frankly, I'm sick of it!

Good luck Honey!
