Happy Friday!  I wanted to update a few things.  First off, I spent my $20 on clothes for this month.  I was actually really looking forward to shopping since I had $20 I had to spend.  Which was weird.  I bought a pair of black dressy type pants and a red sweater.  I spent $35.  I know I spent more than the $20 but I love the pants and I needed to buy something to wear with them.  Also, I need to have the pants hemmed a bit.  I’ve never had pants hemmed before, but I’ve looked around and it seems to cost between $10 and $15.  Seems worth it.  If I can’t get them hemmed then I will have to take them back.  I don’t know why they make pants so long!  I’m not short, and even in heels they still touch the ground.

But speaking of hemming… that seems like a killer home business.  If anyone out there can sew and wants to make some extra cash there’s an idea for you.  Charge $10 for something that I assume would take less than 30 minutes.

Anyways,  my daughter did take money to school yesterday.  She took $5.00 and bought a book and another pencil.  Not a $3.00 pencil, a different one.  I was pleased.  Then this morning she wanted to take more money to school because she still wanted another one of those $3.00 pencils.  I explained that she has to unload the dishwasher 12 times in order to earn $3.00.  She was surprised, but undeterred.  The worst part is that all she had left of her allowance was a $20 bill.  So she took that.  I told her she doesn’t have to spend the whole $20.  She said she knows… but I bet she still will.  Grrr.  It’s so hard to sit back and let them make mistakes.
