So let's talk about spending just a little extra money this month even though eventually it's going to save us money. I swear!
Remember when I was shopping for cheap pre-paid cell phone plans that offer data because our (evil, horrendously overpriced) Verizon contract is (blessedly) about to expire? I decided to go with Virgin Mobile pre-paid because I can get UNLIMITED DATA and 300 minutes of talk for just $35 per month. Did I mention the UNLIMITED DATA? And the use of an actual smartphone? And the unlimited data? Tommy will be stuck with a dumb phone from Tracfone for $9.99 per month so I can still call him while he's at work to holler about snakes and scream about drowned mice.
Anyway, that brings us to $45 per month...which is FORTY DOLLARS cheaper than what we're paying now for Satan's Cell Phone Co. I mean Verizon. Which includes no data plan whatsoever and two dumb phones that are exceedingly dumb.
That's like, an extra $500 per year saved. Do you know how many bottles of cheap shiraz I can buy with an extra $500? Like, a zillion or something (hey, I'm not very good at math you guys).
Now I gots me my my fancy new phone and I'm feelin' all fancy,
clockwise from upper left:
-easy cheesey baby room sewing project
-easy cheesey cushion for cushion-less glider (which was purchased for $5.99 at Goodwill. The glider. Not the cusion)
-chocolate chip cookies to distract from lack of being in labor
-these dinos were clearly up to no good
-selection of projects from homeschool partnership ceramics class
And now I am ready, ready, ready, READY, for real ready for this babe to be born.
Friday. Mark my words.
