Friday Freestyles

Friday!

Baby!

The only thing that would make it better is if it was...

PAYDAY!!!

But it is not.

Alas, 7 days until pay day.

And I am thinking much about money because of this financial fast. This is day 3. I am doing just fine. I have spent no money in the past 3 days, the reason being I am trying to crank out this crocheted baby blanket for my cousin.. Yet I do have my designated cash envelopes.



Yes, they are what you call bootleg... LadyLee style. I My goal was to shop during the week with a list. I don't really need a gas envelope because both cars are on full and I fill up Lucy Jr. every three weeks, and Pam gets a fill up every 2 or 3 months, depending on how much I drive her. So I am good. That miscellaneous envelope is for Wal-Mart and other ratchetness. I will figure that out later.

And this has been an interesting couple of days. We have a teleconference in the evenings about the reading material assignments, and things got a bit intense last night. Look here, I can't be talking to you chickens every night if I am gonna be all weepy, and then angry. And then weepy again. I might just have to just be quiet. I was expecting The Green Eye Bandit to say... "Lee, calm down."

And Bandit, if I do get too keyed up... feel free to shut me down. Please and thank you.

But uh, I can't fool with ya'll if it's gonna be like that every night.

I am looking forward to the weekend. I am attending my cousin's baby shower, and I am about 3 hours from finishing up her blanket. So I will most definitely meet my deadline. 

Picture of the Week. I was driving past Grant Park, one of the neighborhoods near my downtown group of 'hoods, and I got caught behind some mounted police.

Geez... Slowed me down.

Song of the Week. "Bitter" by Chante Moore. Uh, this song contains the "N" word. So if you're offended by such, stay calm and don't listen. But I like this song... doggonit.




Sweepstakes still going on... Comment to win!

Ya'll have a great weekend!

    1. I sure don't. I don't know NUTHIN about filling up gas tanks once a week. Every 3 weeks! I wouldn't know what to do if I had to go to the gas station that often. And there is only $20 in that envelope.

  2. I love mounted police. While on vacation that was the one of the only things I cared about on Bourbon Street.

    1. Man.... I saw them in action once... chasing someone down. The horse jumped some high hedges. Scared me bad. So when I saw these mounted police this day, I was O_o.

  3. Your gas usage has me fanning over here with a good Obama church fan and humming like an old church mother in the corner.

    1. Make a few bootleg envelopes like I did. Real easy. Just have to stick to it. I do it from time to time when I am trying to save money up.

    2. I tried it...you have to really plan and be dedicated ...otherwise, you still end up swiping :) I said I would do it again when I have planned better. You should try it...at least you are more aware of how you are spending.
