The butter tally

September 21st, 2010 at 01:47 am

As some of you already know, hubby and I constantly joke about the butter consumption around here when his parents visit. We have no idea how they eat so much, and yet another visit has passed and we have no idea where it went. The tally was 2 pounds plus one stick of butter for a 5 day visit.

It's madness.

In other news, We were finally able to put some money into savings this pay period. We'd been treading water for a couple of months now, due to unforseen expenses, nothing major, just a lot of $200-$300 things here and there that really ate up every extra penny.

Hopefully, we can keep that momentum going until the end of the year, minus the new windshield for our Honda (with 200k miles on it.), a new car seat for the youngest, and our last house project for the year-- adding insulation to the attic. I may hire this out, as we can't realistically do it with two kids 2 and under.

    lol. DF and I don't eat much butter but always notice it gone when we have guests too.

    Yuk, clogged arteries!

    If you have a cracked windshield, i was under the impression that many car insurance plans provide free windshield replacement. You might want to check your policy?

    We only have liability insurance, so I'm pretty sure we have to pay. No biggie. It isn't as expensive as it would be on most other cars.

    I think it cost $100 to replace my van's windshield - I didn't bother with the insurance.

    LOL about the butter!

    Scones take an entire cube right there. Did you do any baking at all?
