    :cry2:

    Welp....I reckon I'll have to do more OT to just get past this damn holiday.

    $80+ spent at home depot for paint, scrapers, blades, tape, etc.....to brush up the room in the front where the old piano is.....It seems me and the wife were talking last night and this morning...and we decided to put a X-mas tree and the dining room in there.....and hold a small party on X-mas...

    Another $110+ was spent at walmart for more decorations and X-mas tree orniments....and all the crap to make it a sweet looking tree.....wait...no tree yet... :cry2:

    So drove to a flower shop and picked up a decent tree for $40....and plopped it on the subby for the ride home.

    So now my bank account looks empty again.....$230+ for brownie points to help get into the spirit of X-mas.... :cry2:






    A couple cases of Corona and a bottle of cheap champain would have put me in the spirit...but screw it....This party should rock. :)

    The guys will prolly end up in the garage...and the girls will hang out in the house......and I'm taking the night off.

    I bought 12 items for $24 :) People are work and slight acquaintances: Taken care of. It's time to get the heavy stuff for the family.

    Is Santa bringing me a helmet for wintercross ?

    Yeah tell me about it... I got EVERYTHING to buy... First year in a house... NO lights, NO tree stuff, NO decorations, NO stockings, NO NOTHING... Not to mention presents, and bills... :cry2: Bought some stockings and a seasons greeting thing for the door this weekend... Next weekend will be the tree & lights... :cry2:

    I think they should restructure taxes so that tax returns come in december. [​IMG]

    And presents.. Luckily the wife & I agreed to $100 each... But we still have to buy stuff for the baby, and some family members... :cry2:

    I am in debt right now, got to buy for my mom, my brother, girlfriend, girlfriend's mother, my mom's boyfriend, and my grandma. Well I am going to have to keep the amounts small this year. It sucks when you make in the 40s each year and are broke as shit.

    I've only done some e-shopping. Hoping to not even have to go into a store this year.

    I'm on par to spend around 1500 for both families....
