There is nothing like getting out of bed and realizing your dog has puked on your bed unbeknownst to you. You have apparently laid in it, and now you need to wash the bed sheets and yourself...Yuck!
My daughter has what I suspect is some kind of viral rash or something but we have waited it out a few days, and prayed and there hasn't been any improvement for her. It seems to be getting worse. So we are going to the doctor this morning....I want confirmation that I shouldn't worry, and I am curious if there is any cream or something that could alleviate symptoms. We did eventually make it to the doctor and she has fifths disease, which despite it's name is not a disease it is a virus....and once you reach the rash portion you aren't contagious anymore, but the doctor says the rash could last for up to two weeks.
There has been two deaths within about a week of each other in an extended branch of our family. At this point, we are going to attempt to travel back to Delaware to show those that are hurting some love later this week. So I am officially pulling out of the No Spenduary Challenge, it isn't going to be a month of saving much for us at this point. Gas prices are the lowest they have been in a long time, so it should cost us much less to travel then it has in the past. I also hope to pack most of the food we will eat. There won't be funds to go out at all. We will have funds for gas, and that is about it. I am open to any ideas that you guys might have for easy foods to take on the road. I figure I can make egg salad and tuna fish for the ride, as well as pb and j. Might take some cereal for snack.
I carefully spent the grocery money we had for the month and am keeping careful track of what we are eating to see how i can improve on our spending and menu planning. My budget was 129.00. I spent 131.00. Not too bad. To save money this week we had a free lunch at the local senior center, and participated in the bread basket giveaway at a local church. This helps our food in the house go further. I will also later this week be able to get WIC items because my daughter is eligible for the program until she is 5.
My daughter and I went on a small road trip yesterday to Tallahassee with Aunti L to see her daughter perform in a gymnastics event. We were treated to lunch at Wendy's and had a very nice dinner at a place called Harry's, which is a New Orleans' themed restaurant. That was an unexpected expense, but I drank water, and the food was really good. Unexpected things do happen in life, and you never now where a day can take you.
I am sorry I have no photos to share, I accidentally deleted them all when I was reformatting an SD card for use. I hope everyone had a great week. I won't be posting anything else this week as I have some work to do with the unexpected travel and what not. Thank you for hanging in there with me.
