Finances & Baby Shower

Hey Everyone!

Like most paydays I have about $40 to my name, DOH! Once I get done putting money in my 401K, away for bills, away for my unborn child, and student loans I’m left with enough for gas in my truck haha. I love and hate payday, so I never know how I really feel. I love being to provide and keep my life fairly stable, but at the same time I hate feeling like I went to school to get a job, just to turn around and pay off school loans….

Here is a couple buttons I just need added to my keyboard here at work haha:


It is getting down to the end our our fiscal year here at work and that means a few things. First of all if comes around the same time as tax season, which for me is a good thing because I always make sure I have a refund coming. Secondly, my work cuts us in on a part of the years profit, by cutting us all with a check based on time spent working, and job difficulty. Lastly, we get renewed vacation and wellness hours. It is like a freshening up! They do a good job of keeping the employees happy and healthy. I have basically all of my vacation spoken for, which is meh, but it is for good reason. I have half of it for our, once every five years, family reunion in August, and the rest will be used when my wife has our baby! It keeps getting closer haha.

Speaking of the baby, we still don’t have a name, shame on us. My wife is having her baby shower Saturday, at the local coffee shop. We invited a bunch of people, but only a few are able to make the trip. We had a modest amount of things bought off of the registry, the rest I can get from parents at work. We have a few of her college friends coming and staying with us for the next few days as well. We don’t get to see a lot of those people anymore since we all went out on our own ways. The most we see of them is when we go back for things like homecoming, and fraternity/sorority weekends in the summer. So this is good to have a couple of them coming. Here is what the inside of the venue looks like, normally:


I am hoping to get all the furniture paid off before the baby comes, so I can get some of the bills figured out better, and find out how I can start fixing some things around the house. I am not a fan of debt, and being in so much of it makes me stress out often. I know the school loans and mortgage are nothing I can just knock out, but credit card debt is different. Once that is gone I’ll feel much better. I really can’t wait for the weather to get better and stay better. I want to be able to work on the landscaping of our yard, and touch up some paint that has chipped, due to the winter weather. Well, and of course our crumbling steps haha.

That’s it for me on this wonderful hump day! Just remember after noon on Wednesday it is a downhill slide into the weekend! 😉

I’ll see you all again tomorrow, invite your friends! 😀 😀

  1. I always like getting those benefit days refreshed! I am always on the “edge” of not having enough. I usually don’t use them for myself but I have to take my elderly Mom to a lot of Dr. apts out of town and she can’t drive herself out of town. At times I also have to drive the Mister to appointments too. Although it’s out of a different “fund” I was just out of work due to a death in my family (that’s why I’ve been playing catch up!).
