We were supposed to go to Ultrasona and pay $125 to find out the sex of the baby since I was too impatient to wait a few weeks for the doctor to do it for free. I cancelled that appointment amidst a bunch of tears . . . while feeling sorry for myself. I'm over it now. (Not really but I'll just move on.) So the baby's sex is still undetermined. That's the bad news. The good news is I still have my $125.
This whole unemployment situation has really got me thinking about how irresponsible I've been in the past with money. I spent it just as fast as we made it, shopping often for new clothes, decorating the house, landscaping the yard, etc.
Wow, how much things change in just a few weeks. Now I'm clipping coupons and asking myself, "Are Q-tips a want or a need? (Need = I can still buy it. Want =don't even think about it.)
I've turned down the temperature in the house so low I think you can see your breath. I'm looking in the newspaper for all kinds of things to do for free. So far, I've come up with "watching the courtship display of the American woodcock" at Glacier Knoll picnic area on Saturday at 6:30 pm. Wow, having no money kinda stinks.
But then again, I haven't been to Target in nearly two weeks and I don't even miss it. (And that is a lie.)
We're still incredibly blessed. We have each other. We have a cute little baby on the way. What else really matters anyway???
