I was having a big debate in my head know the kind, where you just can't figure out what to do and you're asking the dumbest person on the planet for help...YOURSELF? I was trying to figure out what I would have to cut out of this month's budget just to scrape by. Why all this soul searching...I had to buy groceries for me and Squeakers...mostly I really needed Toilet Paper...CRISIS, YES!!!

So I came to the conclusion that I could still have time to cancel my quarterly pest control service and maybe the $94 that would save me could let me scrimp by on RAMEN for the next few weeks.

I spent over $100 at two stores...some was for Easter gifts for the grandkids. I got home after splurging at the local authentic Mexican food drive thru $3.24. Dispersed all my purchases to their relegated sites then popped my butt down in front of the computer for some info on what's what in the world...VOILA, I go to my Etsy page and something was amiss...three items were missing...huh?? I didn't think I had any expirations till 4/11..then OMG, I checked the SOLD items and there they were...MY SALVATION!!!

I really have been killing myself the past few weeks trying out Handmadeology's plans for sale along with the Etsy Success stuff. I do want so badly to be a productive member of the Etsy Group...for my own sake!!!

So Spring is Sprung, the Grass is riz and I just got MY FLOWERS even if it is only 41 degrees in SUNNY Tucson right now with snow predicted for tomorrow morning in the desert southwest...Yup...SNOW on April 10 2011...gobal warming for sure!!! ROFLMAO
