After a summer without Baby-watching Tuesdays, we are back in the swing of things! Maddy came over and she and Marin had a blast chasing each other around the house and entertaining one another. It was actually a nice break, Marin didn't need me to entertain her all day and she got to work on her socializing skills! It was a good day, plus, it will save us a bit of money on childcare for Fridays when I work.
So Kris came home for his lunchbreak today and brought with him a spreadsheet of our expenses for this past month. It was really scary! We looked at the amounts we spent in certain categories and grimaced. So we made out a new plan! We took seven categories and alloted a certain amount of money for each one. The twist is that we are going to be pulling out all the money in cash every month and putting it into the appropriate envelope, this way, when the cash is gone, it's gone until next month. We may need to do some tweaking, but I'm really excited to see how things will turn out. If Paris is going to happen, we need to BUNKER DOWN!
Ok, picture time!

Playing with the silverware in the dishwasher. Most of it got slobbered on, so it went for another spin in the soapy water when they were done.
