This and That.

I got my first official paycheck today. (Well I got one two weeks ago, but it was only for $24. LOL) I was so excited because I had to put $120 in Jimmy's bank for the van payment. That would have left us with about ten bucks in the bank. So getting my check today was a huge help. It was only a couple hundred for part time. But still a huge help.

To top off the day, we cooked our japanese food. Jimmy's co-worker came over to eat. He made the white sauce and ginger sauce, as well as mustard sauce. I love ginger sauce! Jimmy loves the white sauce. He also brought over and cooked the shrimp. I made the fried rice and sauteed some shrooms and zucchini. Jimmy cooked teriyaki steak. We also made the soup they serve at the restaurant. The only thing missing was the salad. But that's ok. The meal was so damn good! It turned out so good, if I hadn't been there cooking it, I'd have thought we brought it home from an actual japanese restaurant. Besides the salad, all that was missing was the little show those cooks do while cooking. LOL

Tomorrow, Friday and Monday, all the 2nd graders are being tested for the gifted and talented program. I don't know what more they need from Justin. They did bump him up to second grade after the third week of school. If that's not gifted and talented, I don't know what is. LOL Either way, wish him well. :)

My small paycheck is also a huge help to us. I figure that basically I'm working for the braces on the kids' teeth and for the groceries we eat.

We still end up with too much month at the end of the money most of the time, but life is good.
