Ok, I know its Friday and just last Friday I launched my Finance Friday's for Beginners but I was a slacker this week and got nothing done on that. Although I have started paying a lot more attention to the financial news and blogs recently. I'm starting to get a tiny grasp on what is going on with the economy depending on who you choose to believe. Hopefully next week I will get some motivation and actually do something.
Bear is doing better so far, knock on wood. Thanks for your support. I went through my day planner today at work and calculated my husband and I have taken off 19 days for Bear between the 2 of us since I started my job 7 months ago. Plus I am taking off this Monday because the daycare is closed. Add in all the weekends and holidays he has been sick and it comes out to a lot. We have finally decided it is worth taking the financial hit for me to stay home with him. Yeah! But I haven't put in my notice yet because I was out Tuesday and Wednesday and my boss has been out Thursday and today. I am planning to work for another 3 months so they have time to get someone hired and for me to train them before I leave. I work for such a huge system that it takes 2 months or more to get someone hired. So come May I will be like a kid getting out for summer! Cross your fingers and toes and pray for me that this is all going to work out and we won't be living in a cardboard box by the end of the summer.
Oh, and for those of you who are still thinking about Valentines, my husband LOVED his gift. He said, with the utmost sincerity, that this is the best gift he has ever received. Not bad for $59.00. He was so excited. I don't know what excited him more, the thought I put into the gift or the gift itself. He said he would have never in a million years thought of that for a gift. As for me, I also picked out my gift from him since I am on a roll with this gift giving thing. I have been lusting over the jewelry from Lisa Leonard forever it seems like so he bought me the Oval Monogram necklace I wanted (I believe it is the 4th picture down). I didn't get it ordered in time to get it for Valentine's Day but hopefully it will be in soon. I am so excited. I love her stuff.
