Ho ho whoa… that's a lot of money…

Yes, let me tell you a story about the coming and going of money… Hoyt has spent a lot of money lately, buying himself an electric drill and a new laptop, eating out all the time… this has undoubtedly been stressing me out because, lo and behold, it is I who have to pay for all the wedding stuff, living expenses, etc. He's at least going to pay for the first month's rent at the new apartment (we move in little over a week, that's a whooole other bag of stress), and he won't even be a part of that.

But here's where I get even more stressed. The wedding photographer informs us we have to pay everything upfront. AKA, I have to pay everything upfront. So, cut a check for little over 600 dollars (cheap for a photographer, I know, but still a lot of money). That hurt, wasn't expecting it. Got that out today. So the airline tickets are lined up for the honeymoon, I am the only one who has been saving money. Guess who's paying? Me. So, transfer entire savings over to checking. Go to credit card to pay down 2000 just to put another 2000 on it. 2000 dollars, no more. Ask me how much Hoyt has spent on the wedding… I don't even go to the grocery store anymore because of all the money that I just lost. And he cannot even guarantee he has the time off yet. Want to talk about stress? I'm feeling it.

On a lighter note, after Hoyt's minor depression seeing our apartment all tore up to pack (I have been experiencing it oh, constantly, for the past month), I made my first rice balls. I like cooking, it was a good experiment! Of course, to keep the rice balls together they have to be molded while the rice is hot, so I burned the pads of my hands a little in the process. Not bad though; have to work on my technique so that doesn't happen again. Well, I ate too much home-made chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. Me tummy ist not happy. *le sigh* (reference to Cute Overload 😉 ).
