Post For Monday (Written On A Sunday)

19 Mar

It’s Sunday afternoon around 2 as I write this.  I’m getting a jump start on tomorrow’s post as part of my new devotion to time management (see last week‘s post for clarification.)

Sorry.  I apologize.  I thought I could say that with a straight face.

I really am writing this now so that I won’t have to do it in the morning.  I can also post it earlier, and not have it take any time away from other jobs.    But in all honesty, I’m writing this early because there’s a Mutemath concert tonight.

For those of you who don’t know, Mutemath is the only band for whom I will voluntarily shell out $70+ dollars and buy the VIP package.  For that price, I got all kinds of cool stuff including a first-in-line and meet-and-greet pass.  Of course, I’d pay $70 just for the chance to go to a Mutemath show (no one tell the Tabernacle that, though- I really enjoy those $20 tickets).  They’re amazing musicians and their shows are so high energy that you have to wonder if the guys have stock in Monster energy drinks, but most importantly they are just cool guys who have remained humble despite their success. That’s a big deal in today’s musical scene.

Since I have the meet-and-greet pass, and that doesn’t start until around 11:30 tonight, it’s going to be early morning before I finally drag myself into bed.  This means that by the time that I sit down at the computer at 10 am tomorrow to begin the workday, my brain probably won’t be up to anything more advanced than the cutting and pasting that my job requires.

Really, I’m writing this early FOR YOU.  You’re welcome.

Now that I’ve spent 250 words explaining why I’m writing this early, I should probably write the actual post.

I’ve been babysitting a lot this past week.  Four days with two different families- one with two little girls under 2, and another with three boys all well past the diaper phase.  I kept the girls from 8-5 for two days, and spent a few hours with the boys on two different nights.  These were very different jobs, but I enjoyed them both.  These are all excellent kids, and their parents are clearly doing a great job raising them. (I’m not sucking up here- I don’t think either set of parents reads my blog.  I’m just really glad that there are good parents out there.)

All together I made $290, which is going to make a nice month-end payment.  My goal this month was to be under $10,100.  This final payment should put my balance around $10,085, accomplishing my goal by $15!  I’ll let you know for sure next week.

Also next week, Amanda and I will be tallying up our March payments and comparing them.  A winner for the month will be announced.  If you’re confused as to what I’m talking about, you can read about the Amazing Loan Race here and here.  You can also just click the Amazing Loan Race category on the right side of the screen.  Whichever works best for you.

One final note- You’ll notice that it was a disapproving bunny above, and not a cat.  The threat of posting cat pictures if people didn’t click Like or Share seemed to work well last week.  As such, no cats appear in this blog post.  You’re welcome again.

 

PS- I was right about the time thing.  It’s 2 am and I just walked in the door of my house.  Still brushing confetti out of my hair.  There was a lot of confetti.

Like I said, there was a lot of confetti. I don't lie when it comes to airborne paper particles.
