* We got our first unemployment check, enough to pay bills with, but not enough to restock the EF of course. In any event that pushes the end of the world off by a couple months. Now we just have to deposit it, and go with the whole not spending thing for a few months. So far Husband has applied for several jobs, and been doing a bit of writing to see if he can make a go at it.

* I so want

one! but not in my house, in a dedicated office or a garage this would be PERFECT. Maybe a Teen geek bedroom, but not my living room. I can totally see my sons bedroom having this if they had room. (bunk bed on one wall pirate flag on another, window and cupboard fill the other two) You could prolly take a cheap old dirty yellowed case and spray paint it to match the room decor.

* I did manage to complete my day of breakfast with waffles and bacon for dinner yesterday. So far today has been no cooking, doubt I will continue that for dinner, prolly potatoes instead, maybe rice. I dunno. It never ceases to amaze me how HARD it can be to cook EVERY single day! sheesh

* Apparently watching movies can be good for you, if they are the

right kind. Some actually look like something I would enjoy.

*Got a shock when I checked my bank total today, say 100 something figured they took the mortgage and the unemployment wasn't deposited, then I saw some sort of wire transfer with fee as top heading! Was about to go wake up the house to track down who was spending our money...till I realized it was husbands account and he used it for some sort of ebay purchase back in May. Our checking is doing fine, thought they did not take the mortgage out yet, assume the holiday has something to do with it.

*Also discovered I had not stopped the auto savings yet. Guess I aught to. My 'dirty' math (meaning heavily rounded) gives us 2K in, 1.5K out(house, sewer, water, cable, gas, electric, phone, health) plus food/car gas. So not really anything left to save. Though it also points out that the govt is rather wasteful if I have no need to cut my cable internet or fancy phone when my husband loses a job. Not to mention I could go sign up for govt food, medical and WIC (more food) anytime. (Could have before husband lost job) Might do the medical soon, might not.

*GS cookies are for sale! if you happen to live in NC that is. Ask your local girls for your favorite flavor, 3.50 a box. Mine is Samoas, though the Tagalongs are delish and no year is complete without frozen thin mints!

    I would sign up for everything you are eligible for. That is what we pay taxes for and you don't know how long this will last. Did you get Cobra? The government will pay I think it is 65% of your premiums. Maybe you blogged about this. I have days where I don't get to read the blogs, so I may have missed it.

    Happy New Year!

    Our insurance wasn't through work anyway, not sure if that matters, but basically being all libertarian I hate even taking unemployment.
