Ya’ll, to say that I am glad August is finally here would be an understatement. July was a very tough month for me financially since my university decides to change how payroll is processed. Within these last 20 something days, I’ve become an expert in the field of penny pinching. Oh, and payment arrangements? — I definitely had to swallow my pride and
plead for an extension. And let me not fail to mention about me robbing Peter to pay Paul, yea, I was that criminal. But, I got through it and when I least expected it, my paycheck from my university was deposited and a paycheck from my job was smiling at me in my mailbox.
Nevertheless, I’ve definitely been keeping busy. I’m completely exhausted from information overload for the week, but it’s a good type of exhaustion, if that makes any sense. I still have a lot to figure out but my Google Calendar and my planner are helping me keep things all in perspective.
My daughter is starting school in two weeks and I have yet to complete school shopping. That’s mainly because I didn’t know exactly how late my paycheck from the summer was going to be. Luckily I still have some time to get her things. My son is off to Pre-K this year and he’ll be at the same school as big sis, but his supplies aren’t due until a later date. Thank God I only have to make ONE stop in the mornings and afternoons. They’re both excited about going to school but I think I’m wayyyy more excited than they are. I usually do the shopping by myself but this time I want to shop with them. I’m sure it’ll be fun.
As if life isn’t busy enough, it’s only going to get busier but I’m ready to go into super mommy mode. I have a lot of things to get situated to make sure our mornings run as smoothly as possible, but I’m sure it’ll all work out. I had a lot of plans for this blog including different series and I’m going to try my best to follow through. There were a few series that I wanted to start in August but with training and school, those may be postponed. Posts may be a little slim but I’ll try to post as often as I can and still be present in the blogosphere.
