Wow. I have only been doing this for four days, but it is eye-opening.
My one year old was up quite a bit last week with two bottom teeth breaking through. I was getting about 5 hours sleep a night. She had two good nights of sleep after the teeth broke through before she caught her brother’s cold and was up with a 101 degree fever. I am completely exhausted and have been reaching for sugar, sugar, sugar, to get me through the day. I know, it is a bad habit healthwise. Now I realize it is also a bad habit financially.
Here is the damage:
$110 DS’ Japanese school tuition
private–tithes (paid the entire month’s worth)
$23.72 Pizza Hut (my son had a reading certificate for a free pizza that expired on 5/1, so we decided to take the whole family out to eat)
$4.82 junk food
$67.16 4 boxes of Huggies diapers
8.62 lunch at Noodles & Co. (I had a dentist appointment that ran very late because they took an emergency client before me)
2.42 junk food
$8.12 for 3 Mother’s Day cards (why are they so expensive?!)
$15 for Mamapedia voucher for flowers for Mother’s Day
Total spent thus far: $246.36.
