The Ellen show was calling to pre-interview me after I sent in an email to participate in Ellen's Gold Digger contest. Basically, Ellen is sending around a giant money blowing machine to people all over the country and letting them grab all the cash they can in 30 seconds. It would be a dream come true! Talking to ELLEN, extra cash??? Need I go on? Problem is, they said it is NOT a guarantee, just a screening call. ****sigh sigh sigh**** I may not have made myself out poor enough to benefit from her generosity. When the screener asked how the economy had affected us, I just said since I was the only one working, there was never enough money to go around, and I was always trying to figure out how to stretch what I had until the next pay day. I forgot to mention that I have been unable to pay my student loans in I don't even know how long! I make a payment here and there, and then put them back in forbearance. At the rate I am going, I think I'll need to invest in more life insurance so my kids can pay off my loans when I die!
On the bright side, I got the girls registered for full day preschool in the fall, and Matthew registered for kindergarten. I also got a little (really little after they added it onto my paycheck and taxed the fun out of it) extra money for being over by a student so I splurged on new skirts for the girls. Ruby wanted a "mermaid" one, and here's a picture of the skirt! Watch out Perry! She picked the colors herself. Clara's isn't done yet, as she picked five colors for her skirt! I can't wait to see how cute they look ON!!
God is good. All the time.
