- saving-We've been really good at staying on our tight budget this month, and it has paid off with a growing savings
-walking-I take advantage of the cooler evenings and get some miles in with Cakes...always feel it in the morning...dang hips.
-reading-I took a small hiatus from reading. This past week I finally gave in a read the Hunger Games. I'm happy to report that I really enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to reading the 2nd book.
-growing- The kid has grown from an avocado to a full turnip, and is slowly making my regular clothing more constricting (hence all the packing of the closet).
-birthday lists- With Roy's birthday right around the corner, I've been busy listing, and getting ideas from the MR. himself.
Consider the week accomplished!

So here we are spending the big bucks, or what seems like it, and I get Roy's dentist bill. I had anticipated this, but when I opened it it was for $168! I kept thinking it shouldn't be that high with insurance. I opened another letter with official IRS written all over it. Again not unusual as we are constantly getting business tax info. This letter was to inform us that we had been fined $178 because we had filed our partner taxes late. I'm new to this whole business tax stuff, and I'll be honest, I got the dates mixed up for the filing. I didn't think it would be a big deal because we owned nothing for the first filing. Apparently I was wrong...ouch expensive mistake! And to top it all off I opened one final letter last night from our family practitioner, and wouldn't you know another bill for $155...again where is our insurance coverage? So in the space of one week we had not only spent loads on the business but accumulated another $500 dollars in unexpected bills...NO BEuNO!
Here's the good news...Roy was assigned to deal with his health bills, and apparently the dentist bill was wrong and should have only been $66 dollars. And the Dr.'s office sent that bill in error and said that the insurance would take care of it. Huge relief! Now all I have left is to plead ignorance to the IRS and hope the are lenient. So in the end we aren't as bad off as it first appeared, but non the less we are definitely going to be living on the minimum this month...I'll take that challenge of $50 a week and make it happen!

We splurged this year and got ourselves a matching dining table and chairs that don't wobble when you sit on them. I LOVE it! Happy anniversary to us BABE!
Roy's girly tight pants
Roy's tight pants- which is actually a funny story because I had packed our bag Friday morning after Roy had taken off on his bike. When I got up to Heber he eagerly asked for a pair of pants, which luckily I had packed. Apparently, they wouldn't let anyone do any of the activities with shorts on up at the camp. Unfortunately, the pants I grabbed just happened to be a pair that Roy had never seen. They fit, but they were really tight...like girly pants. We still can't figure out where those pants came from, but we made them work.
And finally maybe a low light- Emory's snoring...my 7 year old niece can snore with the best of them, and needless to say we got very little sleep, but still very funny when you think about a little girl making that much noise.
