Cheaper Than Therapy
I'm not a shopper or a spender, this has been accepted quite some time ago. But..............
It seems I will probably not be seeing Anna or Scott when we go to Vegas. I had hoped that she would be able to drive over and we would get a day with her. But working girl said that she probably won't be able to with her new nannying job and all. I guess its good she is being responsible but I'm not happy about the distance. Oh and hey, here is an interesting article about how much babysitters are making NOT NANNIES. Some sitters are making between $20 and $25 if they don't smoke, and are CPR certified. How about nannies with degrees in LA, well they get $13 an hour. Burns me up.
As you know I have been collecting and spending but mostly collecting, Spirit airline miles. Its a hobby. Did you know you can get free miles just for doing surveys? I still like them.
Anyways, I'm cheap and won't pay for baggage for us when we fly. And I won't pay for the kids either. So I have been hitting the clearance racks for shirts and socks so they will have a few things to wear when they come home. They also won't have to worry about shampoo and stuff either. Look, I'm upset and normally spending money doesn't help my mood BUT preparing does. And preparing for them to come home gives me hope. Sigh. I'm kind of pathetic or is it pitiful?
