There are still a few days left in the month and few days before my May monthly report, but I may was well be honest now: I went buck wild this month.
I was so happy to pay off the credit card, I felt so free. Like Mary Mary sang, "Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance..."
But, then I started acting up.
I just busted out the debit card whenever. I didn't shop for groceries, I didn't cook, but Lord knows I was eating! $40 in one sitting a few times. Went to dinner with some buddies; took myself to dinner after a long day at work; just didn't feel like eating whatever I had in the fridge. I was over my dining out budget halfway through May, and kept spending.
Had a wonderful Saturday afternoon with my homegirls to celebrate one's birthday. I had the money for that, but, maybe I didn't quite have the money to add that special "glycolic" treatment to the facial -- but I did anyway. Shoooot, glycolize my face!
Yeah, I'll buy this CD and that book, never mind that I got a pile of books from the library I ain't read yet, movies On Demand AND from Netflix I ain't watched yet and music I just bought on iTunes.
Anyway, I was feeling a little too free this month... you'll see when I do my monthly report. I'm going out of town this weekend, so don't be mad at me if I don't have it right on June 1... you know I be slow on them sometimes.
PS -- In case you're wondering, I PROMISE I'm not spending any more money for the duration of this month (3 whole days. I should be able to make it!)
