Another day of spending

I'll be glad when this week is over.

We had yet another day of running errands and spending money.  I know, it would probably be easier just to get it all done in one day, but with various appointments, it isn't always easy to do.  Bigger yet is the fact that my dh absolutely hates running from place to place.  Love him to pieces, but it sure tests my patience!  

My dh did go to the dentist yesterday.  It was originally my own appointment but they graciously let me give it to my dh.  Sometimes I can be very sacrificial, although in this case, I'm sure my dh would have preferred I not be.  lol  Any takers for my next scheduled appointment?  Anyhow, I thought they were going to finish up his root canal.  He had that done at the end of December.  This appointment was for a thorough exam.  Dh has 2 cavities which will need to be taken care of.  He will be going back today for a cleaning.  No clue as to when they will do the crown.  One thing about having a husband who travels for a living, I also take on juggling a lot of appointments for him.  We still haven't received an actual bill (only insurance statements) so I'll continue to budget $150 a month for all our dental work.  

We dropped the boys off at the groomers, giving us a 2 hour time frame to get some other things done.  Dh needed to replace his stolen drivers license ($18 grr) and I also went ahead and paid for our vehicle tags ($142) that were due early February.  Meant bumping it to January's budget but the money is in the account so a week doesn't matter.  We also inquired about replacing his (also stolen) passport, which won't be cheap.  (double grr).  Dh got his haircut and we found him a nice wallet ($19) that was on clearance.  Still, that too was money that wasn't budgeted.  I know God tells us to love and forgive our enemies, but I am having a hard time feeling this way toward the thugs that did this to my dh.  Admittedly I felt a small sense of sweet revenge in hearing that they tried to use our Discover card unsuccessfully 3 times.  We are both still fresh coming off this robbery, so please bear with me as I go through the emotions.  

We picked up our boys at the groomers.  With the discounts, the cost wasn't terrible.  We spent $55 and they truly look (and smell) a lot better.  

Today dh will go for his cleaning, I'll head off to work for a few hours and we shall see what the rest of the day brings.  Hopefully it will be a day of a lot less spending!
