Our 2016 Mission and Our Favorite Person!!!!
Anna and Scott are in AZ and are going to be staying with his mom until they have jobs and can get a place. I told them that they need to get a 6 bedroom apartment because I have had quite a few people say that they were crashing with her for the winter. LOL, I think my inlaws called it first.
On the bill front, it looks like we are going to have to transfer the debt from the credit card to another credit card. No way am I going to pay interest on it. It is still making me crazy to have debt. The good thing is Den should be getting a small bonus from work. And I almost have the cell phones paid for so that will free up almost $100 off of the bills. And we should be getting back $700 from IL since we got the homestead credit that had never been applied to our bill. I'm hoping that it all comes flooding in at once and I can pay that bill off.
We got our nasty water bill, $173.06! That is for 2 months. I'm still dreading the electric bill. Let's not talk about the food bill. And let's really not talk about the liquor bill!!!! I had to laugh, Anna, Scott and all of her friends drank all of Den's expensive beer and they left him Pabst. She thought she was being generous, he didn't see it the same way. He's grumbling as he is drinking the cheap swill.
We finally got Den's car back. He took off early on Monday and we went to get the car and return the rental. Den opened the trunk and there was water on the carpet and then the trunk wouldn't close. The guy kept telling Den that "it was like butter before." Ummmm no, that's not butter, that's shit with corn in it. So the guy starts slamming it and trying to tell Den that it will sort itself after some use. Den finally got ticked with the guy and said, "I've put 10s of thousands of miles on this car and I know what it feels like to close the trunk." After the guy played basketball with the trunk for a while and it refused to latch, he decided that maybe the guys in back should take another look at it. Den refused to take the car. Loud disgruntled sigh. Den had to take off early the next day and we went back. Knock on wood, it seems to be sorted. "It's like butter." Seriously, that's my new go to phrase when something is fucked up. I do feel the need to point out that we actually don't say butter here, we say budder. Read it right from now on.
The house is ready for another party. My besties daughter and Aunt are having a pool party here. We have all promised Bek(she is turning 17) that we will get shit-faced in front of all of her friends. I live by example.
I think that I have accomplished quite a bit this week. Maybe I should try to accomplish going to the spa or something like that next week.
Run over there and say hi plus enter her giveaway!!!!!! Looks like a great book and it would be even better if you won it!!! If I wrote that book, the title would be "Rude Mom, Drunk Mom."
What have you accomplished lately? Has there been butter in your life?
