... and then I spent a good ten minutes scrubbing blood out of the carpet. FUN TIMES.

I am back to living paycheck to paycheck. I had a nice, safe amount in my bank account last week. Then I spent half of it on new front tires; then my phone stopped working so I had to spend $50 to get a new one that I'll use for all of two weeks before my contract is up; then Amazon charged me for a service that I signed up for the free trial month so I could take advantage of the free two-day shipping (at least they're refunding me since I canceled without using the service), and when I tried to pay for groceries my debit card ran half the cost and then was declined. So, the good news is I didn't overdraw my account; the bad news is that Nick has to give me gas money for the week, until I can get my next paycheck.

Also, it's a good thing I started Christmas presents early, because I'm already burnt out on them. I have half a blanket, a second pair of slippers, a tie, a tea cozy, a muffler, and a shark to make, on top of a second sock for myself and a shark hat to finish. And that's not including the Nook cover I want to make for myself as well.

Let's see, what else have I been up to since I updated last? Well, I cut my hair on Wednesday - it's now just above shoulder-length and layered. Everybody keeps telling me it looks very cute. I'll have to take their word for it, since I don't really have a high opinion of my own appearance, but I do like the way it looks and it's not too annoying to deal with. I did, however, rediscover what happens when you shower before bed and sleep on wet, short hair - it poofs out five inches past your head and won't calm down unless you stick your head under the faucet.

I've also gone back to Curves, and I'm trying to both watch my calories (hard) and get myself to go in three times a week (harder). Thankfully Nick is there to nag me into it. I really do appreciate him helping me to lose weight, even if I do snap at him a lot. I'll have to do something really nice for him sometime soon to let him know.

Holy crap, I just did the same thing! Except with masking tape because I didn't have any scotch tape.
