You may remember a few months back when I acknowledged my spending habits were out of control.  And I committed to making and keeping  a budget.  You can see where it all started here.

Here’s the thing, i did try.  Not overly hard, but a great attempt…er, sort of.

I figured out a budget.  Wrote it all down.  Organized my bills.  And came to the realization that I just don’t make enough money.  Seriously.  By the time I figured out all of my medical bills (which are finally paid off), house bills, car payment and daycare, I barely had money to purchase things like food, diapers, gas, etc.

I started to gamble.  Ha, no I didn’t, but I thought about it.  I did a little research on hot penny stocks and read up on some investors like timothysykes.  Which looks like a great idea if I have spare change to invest!

I realized the best move for me to make is to *gulp* start job hunting.  I make a significantly lower salary then I had when I lived in Des Moines, so I know I can do better.  The thing is, I love my job.  I love the people I work with.  And I will not be able to get better benefits anywhere.

But, I took a plunge and updated the resume, so we will see where this takes me!

Someone send me the winning powerball numbers?
