Frogs Everywhere

Monday, August 13th, 2007

In cleaning out my bedroom over the last couple of weeks, I’ve discovered that I have a lot of stuffed animals, all frogs of course (and one heffalump lol). I really don’t need any more stuffed frogs as they don’t go on my bed, and I don’t have any more room to put them, but that website I linked has such cute ones! I collect frogs, but the little figurines are much easier to find room for than a bunch of stuffed ones. Right now the stuffed frogs are on top of the bookshelf in my bedroom, but that’s currently full. I have two HUGE stuffed frogs that will be going in the garage sale in September. It makes me sad, but I don’t have room for them. And I’m de-cluttering. Yes. It’s a good thing. (Am I convinced yet?)

Good Paycheck

Monday, August 13th, 2007

I’ve mentioned that I’ve picked up an extra shift or two over the last couple of weeks. Since Friday is payday, I finally sat down to figure out what I’d worked. Yep, no financial consolidation software needed this week. On this paycheck will be 80 regular hours, and 29.5 hours of overtime. And! Most of the bills aren’t due until the next paycheck. Woohoo! It actually works out perfectly since I’m ready to buy myself a new bedset, and I have the bill for the ER visit due any minute now, plus the dentist that I already owe money and will be visiting again this afternoon. Yay for some much needed breathing room this month!

Did you know?

Did you know that mesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos? I didn’t. In fact, until today I had never heard of mesothelioma. The bad news is that, like all other cancers, there’s no cure, but there are Mesothelioma treatments available. It’s sad to me because just think about how many people were regularly and routinely exposed to asbestos before someone figured out it had serious repercussions to your health? It’s everywhere. Just recently, they demolished a very old, long standing building on my college campus because it would cost too much to remove the asbestos, and repair the damage to the building. There is also a section of tiles in the building where I work that they can’t remove because of the asbestos in them. Scary.
