Busy, Busy, Busy

October 12th, 2006 at 04:41 am

I have not written in a while because I have been so completely overwhelmed? Do you ever get that way when you have your hands in so many projects and are stretched so thin your head spins???

I have my in-laws at my home right now so I am taking extra care to keep it really clean. My son had his 5th birthday party at Chuck E Cheese on Tuesday I split the cost of the party with my friend. Her son also has a birthday in Oct. so we did a two kid party. It cost me $70(half of the total) for 11 kids to have 2 slices of pizza, cake, party favors, and tokens.

At the paryt my father in-law came up behind me and handed me the $70 I almost cried. The party cost me nothing.

I also write for clubmom and they pay me a salary but also they pay me in gift certificates. I have been collecting Toys R Us gift certificates and I had a $100.00 worth of gift certificates for presents for my son. The total out-of-pocket cost for my son turning 5 years-old $9.18!
