YEAH ITS FRIDAY! PAYDAY! The day everyone looks forward to that says you deserve something for your "work" during this period of time. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and also a time to reflect on how I'm going to be spending said accomplishments. Since I've been working overtime for the past 2 weeks, its been quite an opener to our bank account. Needless to say its the only thing keeping me from tearing my hair out and just completely losing it. OK it sounds like I'm at my wits end but honestly, its really not as bad as I make it. I get unlimited cups of coffee and I can adjust my own lighting to fit my mood! (great perks, huh? lol)

This weekend we are going to treat ourselves to some fresh paint on the new interior doors that a friend help put in last weekend. We have saved enough money with this paycheck for baby stuff so that my wife can be happy about buying whatever is on our daughter's list. Call me a conventionalist, but all I care about is that our baby have a nice room thats warm and theres food on the table.

That said, its time to get back to work. I need to sign up for more overtime.
