Dan is resting for work tonight. Dom is here for a few hours so I have been trying to quietly entertain him. Dom is six so quiet isn’t that natural for him. I made his favourite for lunch (leftover pierogies with sausage). He ate them while watching cartoons. The good news is he ate all of his lunch and managed to do it without stabbing himself with his fork. 👏 (I know, Grandma should make him eat at the kitchen table but Grandma’s a bit of a rebel).
After lunch we went up to the playhouse for a while but the wasps were pretty bad up there today. We came back in to play with Playdoh and marbles. The marbles were not quiet. For the record, they were not my idea. We are back to watching another cartoon. In a bit, we will head out to pick some peppers for Erin. That should be a fun bit of entertainment.
There’s not a lot of anything else happening today. We got our Canadian Tire bill in the mail this morning. Years ago, when I was alone with my teenagers, I worked long hours to provide for us. At the end of the month, I would sit down to write cheques for our rent and for any bills I had to pay. I was always so happy, relieved, and grateful when I had the funds to cover all of our expenses, fill my gas tank, buy groceries, plus stash a few dollars away into savings. 😊
Fortunately, we never had a month when I came out of this exercise unhappy!
It has been many years now since I have had to wonder if my hard earned money would cover our regular expenses plus the miscellaneous costs or raising a family. Now, when I go to my bank account to transfer funds to cover bills, I know that our funds will be more than adequate. 😁
But twenty years later, I still get excited when we receive a bill and I open my bank app to pay it. I am so grateful and happy that we have the funds to cover every expense we incur. It just never gets old. 🤣🤣🤣
Wishing all a great day! Take care and see you tomorrow. 💞
