Well goodbye May!
I read pretty near everyone in the blogosphere lambasting May for being a really sucky month this year.
Sucky as in sucking all the money out of their pockets!
Lot of unexpected and planned spending was had in May for many folks.
Everyone is glad to see May go.
I don't rightly remember much of May what with all the stuff going on here, I haven't had much time to notice how monetarily sucky the month was for us. I do recall many hands being stuck into my face, palms up, waiting for dollars to be deposited onto said hands over the course of May but the exact dates and amounts escape me.
And I was bad too in May since I spent money on some clothes and shoes. Granted I got everything for great sales prices but it's nothing I needed really. Who needs purple clogs, right?!
And then I bought a new bathing suit for myself. Maybe that WAS a need though since all my old suits all have dry rot from all the chlorine over the past 5 years. So a new one was in order and I did get it on sale. But even so.....fat ladies swimsuits on sale are STILL outrageously expensive!
I guess when I sit down later today to do my "Savings Challenge" accounting I'll see the bottom line on the spending won't I?
If you hear a sonic boom later today, that will be me reacting to the bare walls in our money vault.
And believe me, the money vault is pretty bare(for us)as we leave May.
This morning, I found a post in my Drafts that I never completed and posted in May. It was a Quarterly Updated on how the Yearly Goals were going.
Did anyone notice a post on my blog about a Goals update in May?
Nope, didn't happen, did it?
The kids came home mid month in May and it's been a blur since then. ;-)
Let me go and take a peek at my blog so I can recall what went on.....brb.....
Man! I was a whole lot of BORING in May, wasn't I?
Food shopping, Meal Plans, a Giveaway and a whole LOT of Video/Music Clips.
1 Savings Challenge Report for April and 1 Decluttering Session.
Makes me wonder why anyone even reads this!
Here's a run down of what's ahead for June at Chez Sluggy.
Moving and cleaning stuff.
Surgery for one of our dogs.
Hemming Daughter's work pants for her new job.
#2 Son finishing out the school year and the wailing and gnashed of teeth that goes with that!
Graduation for the Nephew.
Hub's siblings descending on us for the event noted above....oh, now THAT will be fun!
Packing and getting #2 Son ready for camp training.
Taking #2 Son to camp.
Taking a small vacation.
Working on my Genealogy.
Working on Scanning Photos.
And dare I mention it....finally maybe doing some sewing.
Yeah, I didn't think anybody would actually BELIEVE that last one.....
So, let's all take a deep breath before we launch into June.
And let's hope it's a sunnier month for all!
So did your May suck all the cash outta your pockets?
Or did you survive high and dry, sitting on your pile of cash?
