Happy Friday Everyone! I am looking forward to this weekend for one reason and one reason only – REST! I have managed to catch my hubby’s cold and now my head feels like it weighs 1,000 lbs and I am foggy and hazy, not a good feeling honestly.  Tired, is probably the best way to describe how I feel most, just plum tired.  So am hoping to make the next four hours of work just fly by so I can get the weekend started with a few errands before just chillin’ at home with the kids tonight…lets hope it works out.

Alright, first and foremost a huge shout out to everyone who has been reading my blogs!! OMG they have blown up this week and I am soo very happy about that! I couldn’t be more please! This one especially has been busy and for that I am amazed! We got our first follower yesterday, Simply Money, I am hoping between the two of us those who pop in here will be able to launch over there to garner some of her advice along with learning from our mis-steps if they happen!  Or get something from one of my rants, discussions, etc.

That being said – I did venture to Merrill Lynch’s website from BoA’s and was attempting to make heads or tails of the investment information they have there so when I am at the point of wanting to purchase stocks/bonds/securities I have some idea of what I am looking at, but MAN was I overwhelmed, think it might be beneficial to bring help in on that one when it’s time!  A professional so to speak, thankfully I know someone who can help!

Alright, here’s the budget for the week – once again I am blown away with the amount of outgoing money from our account, I just simply cannot wrap my head around it…then again paying bills will do that to you:

 $370.89 Remaining from W/E 04/21/13  $556.41 Lara W/E 04/28/13 Salary
 $103.93 Amt. Spent  $273.12 Jimmy W/E 04/28/13 Salary
 $266.96 Avail. Starting  $829.53
 $11.32 PetsMart  $266.96 Avail. Starting
 $10.04 Wal-Mart  $829.53 Total Pay
 $6.02 KTC Total  $1,096.49 Avail. For Bills
 $29.96 Sunoco $6.07 Adj. From Bank
 $8.20 McDonalds  $1,090.42

 $4.64 Chick Fil-A
 $3.71 Everybody’s
 $6.65 Wal-Mart
 $6.78 Wal-Mart
 $4.50 Target
 $5.87 Rite-Aid

This week was also our first week with the benefits money being pulled from Jimmy’s pay, thus the reason there’s a bigger difference in his pay for the week vs. last week and prior with his pay floating around $305.00 vs. the $272.00 he received this week. What has also got my attention the most is the $103.93 we spent between weeks…oy not happy about that AT ALL!  This will be something to make sure we don’t repeat on the next bi-week.
