Peach State says: I Need A New Magic Wand!

This is officially the “end of my month”…at least financially. I do so abhor this time of the month…but this month especially.

MOM…

I have a follow-up appointment with the surgeon…
Don’t forget money for parking at the hospital…
I need these two prescriptions filled…
I need a new razor…
I want this type of cake…
Can you take me here…
Can you take me there…
I need a ride…
I have a field trip…
Do you have a couple of dollars…
Drop off the cleaning…
Pick up the dry cleaning…
Pay through the nose for the dry cleaning…
Can you take the UPS package…
Dad wants you to go get the supplies for the deck…
Dad called and he said go ahead and get the stuff for the lawn…
I need a green shirt…
How about something that is not ground beef or chicken for dinner…

and my favorite..
You want a coffee? Can you get me one too?

My poor Magic Wand is depleted. I wave it and swoosh it…I flick it and swish…I talk nice and sweetly to it…I even tried throwing it across the room. That didn’t work either! With all the extras thrown into the mix this month I am amazed I didn’t run out of $ money $ earlier. “Speaking of running out…My car’s dashboard tells me I have 9 miles till empty.” GREAT!! I am usually very good at Stretching the proverbial buck but this month has me a bit…overwhelmed! to make matters worse one of my auto-withdrawals has not been withdrawn yet and they are 6 days late. At the first of the month the other auto-withdrawal came out before my deposited went in to the account. [Notification…a fee has been applied to your account…] “Oh no you didn’t!” The bank refunded the fee…after I told them it was their fault for not applying the deposit early enough.

I also caught the dry cleaner in a $4.50 mistake and she gave me a credit…but when I went to pick up the clothes last night, and paid through the nose, she whacked me for $28.55 for five shirts and four pants. She then took the tags, showing the cost for each article of clothing, off the plastic coverings and waved them in my face…I reminded her of the credit and she took it off…but after getting home I added up the prices and it doesn’t jive…I guess I know where I will be going before heading to the doctor’s office this morning. [swish and flick!] “Come on Magic Wand!” More Gas…I need More Gas!

I wonder if my $$$Money$$$ Tree is blooming yet?

Yeah right…Money doesn’t grow on trees! Oh well! Maybe next month!
Have a great day!
