I'm sitting on the couch in my jammies just hanging our with my kiddies while Y is still sleeping. I'm getting lots of smiles from little Baby G. We don't have anything planned today and I love those days.
I will make a menu later today based on what we have. This will be a busy week as Y is out of town all week for training. Lil Punk starts swimming lessons this week, too. I also start with my new territory in full swing. After an initial freak out, I talked to a coworker who will gladly help me and take over if I need him to.
I'm seriously contemplating hiring a house cleaner. I don't think I "deserve" one but its really hard to keep up. I inquired with a friend who had somebody clean her house. She was paying $100 each time twice a month. $200 is not in the budget. I was thinking more like $100-120 per month for two times. If you have your house cleaned, how much do you pay? Does that make me lazy to hire a house cleaner?
Financially, we are just cruising along. There is nothing exciting with our finances which is good.
We are discussing building our deck. We went to Lowes yesterday and we liked the composite decking material they had better than Menards. It was quoted at about $300 higher than Menards but I have their card so I will get 5% off which brings it down to about an extra hundred bucks. Its really a covered front porch so I'm super excited to get started and have it done. We are outdoor people and I see us using the front porch a lot.
I should also sit down and figure out where I'm at for the month with grocery spending. If I don't know, that probably means I spent a lot.
I hope all my blogging friends have a wonderful week:)
