Pay Day

Today is pay day. Last week is the first time in over 3 months that we went over budget on our variable spending. We went over by $8.62. Not bad. Still adjusting to the credit/debit cards. I stocked up on some meat last week on sale so that's what put us over. I went grocery shopping tonight after work and kept it small, just using meat from the freezer. I stocked up on canned tomatoes and spaghetti sauce that was on sale.

The total was 72.07 for the week. That's $77.93 under budget. I'll stick that in the surplus savings account.

The menu for this week is:

Sunday - Sweet and Sour meatballs with rice
Monday - Spaghetti
Wednesday - Glazed chicken with julienne vegetables and rice
Thursday - stovetop shepherd's pie
Friday - General Tsao's chicken with rice
Saturday - Chilli

And the birthday party for my girl last Saturday went very well. She got her "yata" - a pink My Little Pony. She was overjoyed with it. It's now hanging from the ceiling in her room. All the little girls showed up (5 guests). We had games, crafts, lunch and gift bags. It was a lot of work, but so much fun.
