Why Am I So Stupid?

September 16th, 2008 at 02:53 pm

Last Friday, I mentioned to my dh as I was balancing my checkbook that it seemed odd that I had a $500 balance in my checkbook even though I was 8 days away from payday. Ususally, it is about $100 by that point. I have figured out it is a bad idea to mention a surplus of money near him, because he said, "Well let's go to Hastings, then, because there is a book I would like to get." Then, "a book" become a cup of Starbucks and dinner out. Zap. Cha-ching! There goes a good portion of my "surplus." I had forgotten entirely that I had made an allowance for visit to the dentist this morning (which wound up costing me $60.00 more than what I thought it would) and the visit to the chiropractor tomorrow. Oh, well, live and learn.

    Haha, it's funny how things happen like that. You've learned your lesson though! Smile

    I can totally relate! Hopefully we'll both do better next time there's a surplus!
