Off The Cliff!
Thursday, January 03, 2013
Today is payday and while I normally am happy with my paycheck, this one was a shocker. I got a raise this past Dec ($1500 a yr). But for one reason or the other (fiscal cliff jumping, expiring medicare holiday, etc) it only bumped my pay up by $3 a pay period. Don't get me wrong...I'm very lucky to have a job when so many don't. But raises are hard to come by where I work. So I was looking forward to seeing a bigger jump in my pay. Esp with a new car payment. Although I do have all the monthly finances worked out, it would have been nice to have a tiny bit of breathing room. I have a few things I'm going to do to put more back into my take home. Like reduce the amount each paycheck I allot to buying shares in my company. Somehow...I'll mange...I always do!
Since Jason went home yesterday (I miss him!), hubby has regained control of the TV remote control. And he's vowing to never watch Storage Wars again!
Jason really liked that show so we watched it a lot. He can't watch it at where he's staying. Well..he could...he has Slingplayer on his phone, but the picture gets choppy after a bit, mainly because it's running on his Sprint 3G and Sprint's not the best where he lives. I wish I could get him a better image but I can't.
Eating today, so far, has been good. I'm still facing the same problem I had pre-Holiday. Dinner time. Last night I made spaghetti. I ate way too much. Although I wasn't to the point of feeling stuffed. And cheese...I added like a 1/2 of cheese to it! So I need to work on the whole dinner thing.
So that's it for me today. Only ONE more day until the weekend!! Have great rest of Thursday where ever you are!
