Crappy day, and expensive month.

January 13th, 2009 at 08:35 pm

Boy, today was trying. Beaner has a cold and turned from his sweet go with the flow self to the not eating, not napping, screaming for 10 hours straight monster. It was so out of character I took him to the doctor. No ear infection, just the cold, and we have to wait it out. Ugh. I hope he is better tomorrow because I was at the end of my rope by the time hubby got home.

I was extra stressed because I just got two freelance assignments last night and I really needed to get the ball rolling today to meet my deadlines. That didn't happen because I usually work during naptime and there were no naps. Ugh.

On another note, January has been an expensive month. so far, I've had to dish out:

$1,400 for half year property taxes.
$590 for homeowners insurance
$250 for two cars' insurance
$200 to renew my car registrations
$1,600 for some new Energy Star windows

Then hubby decided to buy season tickets to our MLS soccer team to the tune of $649.

Plus two bean doctor visits at $30.

I feel like the world is sucking the money out of my wallet.

On a more positive note, I still managed to save $500, and pay $40 extra on the student loan.

Here's hoping Beaner is more like himself tomorrow.

    I hope he feels better so YOU can feel better. Sorry it was such a rotten day.

    Good luck with the babe! Try a bath, if he likes baths. Warm and steamy. Or, my favorite "I'm desperate!" solution... a ride in the car (take your book with you so that when he falls asleep you can just pull over on the side of the road and read!) Sometimes when they're sick they'll sleep fine in the car, since they're upright.

    Again, good luck.

    Try what my wife did for our three girls when they got sick. Vicks bath gel in the water. It soothed them, opened their chests and noses and relaxed them enough to take a little warm milk, cough/cold medicine and out like a light.

    Then, you get some rest too. God bless you and beaner.

    January is definitely an expensive month. I noticed the same thing - somehow the bills & unexpected expenses for this month just keep rolling in!

    Poor little beaner! I know how he feels. I have been really sick myself. In fact, I have not gotten to my sock box, but am shooting for this weekend since laundry is way behind. I have not forgotten.
