Today was payday and it is all gone. It is all for Christmas presents. Mostly cash gifts. My credit card has also been getting a good work out. I always get socked this time of year and it usually takes me until February to pay for everything and get back to normal I have to say that I don't think that I have spent as much as I have in previous years. I don't really keep track as I am spending it just gets me sad. I don't really feel to thrifty or frugal this time of year.

We put up our tree today. It is real. We purchased it from Home Depot. It makes the house smell wonderful. I am having a hard time keeping the puppy away from it. Tomorrow I will decorate it. I am having my parents over for Christmas. Which is a surprise. Since they never come to my house. So I went out today and made a catering order to one of my favorite Italian restaurants. It wasn't too expensive but there I go spending again. I think what the heck...I've come this far why not go out with a bang.

In the mix of all this spending I was able to put some frugality into the mix. I negotiated a better finance rate for my DD's CC. Just one phone call and I got her 20.4% down to 11%. Plus they will be sending her a new card that has rewards on it without a yearly fee. I received a small payment from the books I sold from Half.com.

Read two books by Marian Keyes, Watermelon amd Sushi for Beginners...cute.

Still feel like I have lots more to do.
