Here at work, we get our pay stubs a few days before we actually get paid. It’s kind of nice actually to know what to expect on Friday – even if it is only Tuesday. Today however, I think I’d rather not know.
I just took a peek at my paystub and started deducting the bills that I have to pay for the month.. wow. Talk about a kick in the junk. Good thing we have a lot of leftover food in the fridge cuz I’ll see you next paycheque! All told I think I have just over $100 to spend the next two weeks.. BOO!! I guess that’s motivation to sell some stuff on UsedPei or Kijii.
The sad part about it, is that being online and at a computer working all day, I get to check out every good sale that comes up online and sometimes these darn things seem soo tempting! Today for example, I took a look at buy.com’s weekly sale and they’ve got 4 gigs of memory (RAM) which is the maximum Windows will recognize (unless you’re running 64bit version) on for $81.99. That would be a MAJOR upgrade to anyone’s computer for sure.. but BAH! I gotta stop looking at that stuff.
I guess I’ll have to start watching a lot of movies and touching up a lot of pictures which I had planned on doing anyhow instead of heading out on the town on the weekends or mid-week shopping. But now that I think about it, that seems very do-able.. after all, I have to be around while my boy recovers from his surgery. .and I have lots of wine, and movies.. what else do I need?
