Okay, I know I haven't written a blog in awhile, but I just got a bit busy and a bit lazy. Those do not go. I'm off from work today. I called out b/c of the snow. DH takes a guy to work everyday since his wife has to take her son to school. Some snow days, his friend is able to take him to work so I can have the truck, but today his wife had to take her son to school, so I figured I'd just call out. It's supposed to be bad down by work, so I figured I didn't want to get stuck down there. I hear if they do early dismissal, it takes 2 hours to get out b/c there are about 9,000 people trying to exit out of 3 gates. So, the Mustang is staying parked. Here's what I plan on doing today:

-I want to go get TurboTax since I finally got DH's w-2 yesterday and start our taxes

-I want to hash out my budget. I got my raise and now I want to sit and figure out how long it will take to pay off debt. I want to also put money aside each week for DH's tires ($600), vacation (was thinking I can use the money I put away from grocery savings), gifts (I have two showers in the next month and they are getting costly!).
-Pay bills.
-Start letter to Senators about the act/bill for Federal employees to get 4 weeks paid leave after having or adopting a baby. Right now, we get 12 weeks unpaid and we still have a job type of thing...but this year there's a bill going up that needs to get signed to give Federal employees 4 weeks paid leave.

-Clean up from Super Bowl. The kitchen looks like we went grocery shopping and didn't put anything away. Need to find space for that stuff.

-Do my filing. I procrastinated in that 'I'm an organizing junkie' contest. I got it all together, but just never filed it. I need to get a basket too to keep my filing stuff in.

-I wanted to take a ride to Babies R Us to return a gift-got the wrong thing. Also, my DH's cousin who is having one of the said showers said they are having a big sale on baby clothes. She's having a little girl and I LOVE shopping for little girls! I may have to wait for DH to get home to take me...it's quite a ride to that store from here.

-Get my Q's ready for the week. I need to get a few things from A & P and Shop Rite and CVS, so I need to get my envies ready.

-Update my grocery stuff and put on here. I need to get my January totals together as well.

-Get e-vites ready for my Partylite party. I really want to get my business going this year, so I'm doing an open house on Feb 22nd. If anyone in Jersey wants to go, let me know so I can send you the evite.

-Get envies ready for brides for my Partylite business.

Okay, so I have a ton of stuff to do, and I'm still in my PJ's at 11:33am. Oh boy...better get myself going!
