Well, another day, and on to better news!
I made $471 extra last month at the second job and babysitting!
I didn't spend any money yesterday or today, and I made a batch of brownies to bring to a friend's place tonight (usually I'd pick something up on my way).
I've been practicing my stitches on the sewing machine, and I think I'm ready to start getting crafty. Christmas should be great!
