Just got the approval to work some overtime on some projects at work that nobody seems to have time to complete. With summer upon us, vacations will kick in making it harder to get all the work we have to do done. So, I have to let my boss know at the beginning of the week when I want to work overtime for the coming week. It will be difficult given all the activities the kids are involved in to find time to work extra but I am going to make it work somehow. We are rarely given the opportunity for overtime so I am going to jump all over it. I emailed DH today and told him we will have to go over everyones schedules tonight to see how we will make this work. I am not working extra next week as it is the holiday and even if I did come in it would be regular pay and I am going to need the week to prepare for what is going to be a very busy summer.

Took DS out for ice cream last night. $6 not planned but worth every penny. DH and DD went off to karate after soccer practice and it was just DS and I so I thought it was nice if we could spend some time together doing what we love...eat ice cream! Other than that, I am doing good with not spending. Got a coffee at work today for $1.40. Brought my lunch and we had bagels during a mroning meeting.

Tonight is the first and only night of the week where we do not have plans. I am looking forward to getting caught up on some housework and then just relaxing Smile

    It's terrific about the overtime...maybe things are looking up for both you and the economy.

    I agree that was a $6 expenditure that will lead to some insurance of a great memory for you and your DS... sometimes you need to take advantage of the opportunities when they present themselves. Oh, and that is great about the OT! It will quickly counterbalance the ice cream. =)
