Where's Margie's Money?

A quick hello

I haven’t abandoned my blog!  It’s been an amazing 4.5 weeks – can’t believe it’s already been one full month since my little girl entered my world.  Ever since then life has been turned upside down but in a VERY good way.

“Hi, my name is AJ – and my mom put this sh*t on my head to commemorate my one month birthday.”

From a financial perspective, I haven’t spent much money since she was born . . . unless you take into account the $900 I spent (well, WE spent – DH and I) on newborn photos. 

Also, I paid the entire month’s rent ($1,500) because DH hasn’t received his first FMLA payment yet and it’s been 4 weeks . . . and I think it’s my fault (I’m afraid I filled in a bubble wrong on the form). So even though he has written me a check for his share and INSISTS that I deposit it, I am equally determined NOT deposit his money into my account until he gets his money.

Next weekend is my friend C’s bachelorette party which I’m hosting as MOH.  I put the hotel room (that I’m not staying at because HELLO I’ve got an almost 5-week-old that is still breastfeeding!) on my credit card (I KNOW) and while I’ve paid off my share of the bill I’m waiting for the three other girls to reimburse me. 

Oh, and I bought $150 worth of clothes online from Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic. . . some of it might get returned since my body is not the wonderland it was pre-pregnancy (I’m an entire size larger now and clothes just don’t fit the same thanks to the enormous boobs and new mom hips/tummy pooch) but I needed SOMETHING to wear that didn’t have elastic sewn into the waistband.  Hopefully these will just be transitional clothes until I can get my old body back (please, don’t burst my bubble).

Okay, so I guess I HAVE spent money in the past month – it’s just on different stuff because I haven’t entered a grocery store in forever and I drove my car for the first time today.

My goodness, I am SO behind in my blogs.  My google reader says that I have 1,000 + blogs to read. It’s so overwhelming I’m tempted to reset it all to zero and start again but I know I won’t do that.  So, I’m not commenting much but definitely know I’m reading (as I can) and that I hope to be back on a more regular basis again one day soon!

    Aww, so cute.
    Post baby clothes are a must for sure. Even if temporary.
    Enjoy your time with your sweet little girl. I give you full permission to mark all of my posts as read without reading them 😉
