Mid-week check-in

January 6th, 2010 at 05:00 pm

Boy, I've been suffering from a cold, and all I want to do is sleep! It certainly seems like that alarm goes off earlier and earlier every day. I'm planning on heading to bed earlier than normal tonight to see if I can catch up on some much needed sleep.

DH has been working steadily on getting the paperwork done for the bankruptcy. His goal is to have it all done by this Friday.

He's trying to do his best with being the head cook and dishwasher. I did have to teach him how to make mashed potatoes tonight. I was taken aback when he asked me how to do it. I always thought that was something "everyone" knew how to do...it's been fun anyway. Now it's like we're cooking together (we didn't do that too much in recent history - it was usually just me cooking). I tell him how to do it and he does it. It is kinda weird not doing it, but I'll adjust.

I have to work on Saturday, and we have plans to go to a friend's home on Saturday night to play cards. Sunday my sister wants to take me to lunch for my birthday. Nice that all of it will only cost the gas to get there.

I ran some errands for DH on the way home from work so he didn't need to make the trip and waste gas (as he put it). He's really been careful watching where the money goes since he's been home. He did call unemployment today; it won't be much, but it'll be enough for now. I may pick up a part-time job, but it seem like he'll only need to get something for around $11.50 an hour/$24,000 a year. If he gets more than that, then I won't need to work part-time. Though I still might do that...just to get some money in the bank and/or pay off the lower amount we owe to family.

We've been keeping a positive attitude, and I think that's helping tremendously.
