I have ugly furniture and payday update.

June 20th, 2009 at 03:32 am

I got paid yesterday. Made $300 more than usual thanks to the extra hours I picked up. $109 of that will go to renewing my nursing license and the Continuing Education units I had to pay for.

I am on vacation in precisely 35 minutes! I will be off the next 7 days. Have no big plans. Wednesday is the garage sale and I STILL have a lot of work to do to be ready for it.

I am a little upset with my husband because all of a sudden he seems to want to spend money. Wants to buy C. a trampoline for 350.00 and I think that is foolish...we need to put that money on credit cards.

Also, he doesn't seem to think some new furniture and getting the cats declawed is a priority...at all! I am going to have a talk with him because I had to cancel a friend's baby shower at my house and move it to another location because I was too embarrassed of my living room.

Now, I am not being superficial, well maybe a little, but our couches are a hundred years old, torn to shred by the cats and are all stained up. They are out of style and just nasty. My oldest daughter doesn't even want to invite her friends over!

Now, the outside of our house is very pretty, most people driving by would probably never assume our living room resembles a bachelor pad. But it does and I am sick of it and the idea of spending money on a trampoline just gets me a little agitated.

So, I plan on going home soon and calmly discussing this with my husband. Wish me luck.

p.s. I am down to 135 lbs! yay!

    I completely understand how you feel about the torn up furniture, but you might want to do some research online about declawing your kitties.

    Although i couldn't bring myself to declaw a cat, after my last cat died, i was determined to adopt a cat that had already been declawed by someone else becus i also had issues with cats scratching furniture, but more so, carpeting.

    But if you research it online, it's really not recommended, even besides the ethical aspect of it. Apparently, a lot of declawed cats develop behavioral issues, serious ones, like not using the litter box becus after declawing it's uncomfortable to walk in litter.

    I've been able to deal with my 2 new clawed cats by gradually replacing most of my area carpets with bamboo mats. I only have 2 rooms that are wall to wall carpet, and one of them i can close off during the day when i'm not home so the cats can't scratch it.

    Also, you can buy sprays at Petco that cats don't like to keep them off the furniture.

    Good luck talking with hubby, enjoy your vacation, and congrats on the weight loss. You're at my goal weight, and I'm a L-O-N-G way from it! Wanna trade? Smile
