I know we can all relate to being on a tight budget, and here it has been difficult trying to get back on our feet since my husband lost his job, before finding his new one. We are finding the joys in the simple things in life. So saving and scrimping by. Well I have always loved makeup, ever since I've been little I've been giving everyone makeovers. I always wanted to be able to help cancer patients and burn, or accident survivors feel better about some scars they may have. I just felt there was something magical about makeup. When I put it on, I felt special. So that has carried into my adult life. I've sold Avon and Mary Kay in the past because I enjoyed it so much. As soon as I wake up it's the first thing I do, apply makeup LOL. It's just me.;-} So when I woke up and saw my blush had cracked apart in it's case...(ever had that happen ?) I was not a happy camper knowing it would have to be replaced. So the deal here is CVS, one of my favorite places to shop. The money saving deals you can get there are awesome! So I had some ECB's ( extra care bucks) I was saving for something I needed...lo and behold blush! My bill after ECB's was $2.10. I was quite happy about that! Last week I got $120.00 worth of items for $23.00. Using deals, coupons and ECB's. It helps too that the store is literally minutes from my house. :-)
The frustrations of my evening have to do with Bank of America and the heartache we have been going through dealing with them. We spent 3 hours and 15 mins. on the phone with them this evening, transferring from dept. to dept. and getting no where. That's a long story in itself, but I am emotionally drained tonight.
I am looking forward to the weekend and getting to see family again. :-) However I could pass up the long ride to get there. So tomorrow I will be packing and cleaning, and doing regular activities with the girls, busy, busy. Then praying Elvis and Princess will be o.k. for 2 nights alone. We have self feeders in place, but I hate leaving them. The pups of course will be traveling with us. Going to be another extremely hot weekend, again not a plus for me.
I should get to bed, I have not been sleeping well, lots of worry on my mind....things to sort out.... and lots of prayers. I know God has a plan and I'm putting all my trust in him right now, that this too shall pass.
Hope you all have a great weekend! Hoping I get a chance to post tomorrow.
