I’ve Got Sidebars!

29 Apr

Check ’em out! ———>

(Thanks to Stacking Pennies on how to get the sidebars on!)

I apologize for my MIA status lately.  I finally moved this weekend so now all I have to focus on it studying for the big test which is officially 2 weeks away!

Also noteworthy is the fact that I’m having an internet connection installed at our new place this weekend! YAY!  Lloyd and I got a fairly good deal for about $79 per month for internet and cable.  I haven’t had internet/cable since I lived with roommates in college (about 4 years ago), so I’m not sure if that’s a good deal or not!  I’m really just happy to be able to surf the web whenever my little heart desires!

Coming soon after my test:

  • New apartment deets and expense comparisons
  • Guest post by LLOYD! 
  • More Kansas City events on the cheap
  • My summer weekend trip
  • Vegas trip!
  • About Carrie post
  • Life financial goals
  • Past financial accomplisments

Stay tuned!

P.S. Is anyone else freaking out about the Swine Flu?  I am super nervous to get on a plane in about a month!

And Now I Can’t Sleep…

23 Apr

OMG I had this whole post typed up and deleted it!  GRR!

Yep, I can’t sleep.  I have never had problems sleeping in my life.  I LOVE sleep.  Sleep loves me.  We go well together.

I’m fairly stressed right now – I’m moving in a couple days and I’ve been studying my arse off.  Not a fun combination!  My test was supposed to be tomorrow, but that ain’t gonna happen.  I had to reschedule it because I am so NOT ready.  Which means I had to incur a $35 reschedule fee (on top of the ($250+ plus that I already spent on the test).  I hate it when I have an un-planned dint in my budget. 😦

On top of studying, who freaking knew moving was so expensive and stressful!  I’ve been spending every night throwing things out, piling things up to return to people, packing things, cleaning things, patching that hole that I kicked in my bathroom wall when Lloyd and I were fighting one time….Whoops!

So, I lay down at night and my mind just starts running.  I worry about studying and packing and work.  THEN, after awhile of doing that, I worry about not falling asleep!  Then, I just DON’T fall asleep!

It’s the most frustrating thing ever!  I want to sleep – but can’t!

I can normally fall asleep with the best of them, but this is driving me crazy.  Luckily, AFTER I finally fall asleep, I can sleep. 😀  But I normally wake up once in the middle of the night (which also isn’t normal).  But still, after laying there for awhile, I’m not getting my full night’s sleep and I wake up drained…it sucks.

What’s the deal?  Am I on overload or what?  I’ve never had this problem before! NOT FUN!

COTC Update

9 Apr

For those that are scratching their heads – COTC = Carrie…On The Cheap. 🙂

As far as the blog goes, it’s hard for me to post because I don’t have internet at home.  I know, I’m a loser.

However, in a couple weeks when Lloyd and I move in together, we WILL have internet!!


Lloyd has a fabulous iMac as well, so I will definitely be hogging that (don’t tell).

The point is, currently I can only blog on lunch at work and when I’m at Lloyd’s house.

I plan to do lots more blogging when I have internet at home! I know you’re excited!

I’ve been really wanting to post more pictures on Kansas City on the blog – so that’s where I’m going to take it.  I want everyone to be able to actually see all the things I’m blogging about.

Trouble is – I’m a HORRIBLE photographer.  I know that gets you excited to see the pics, right?  I’m working on it though!

Stay tuned!
