Stressed out

I am always feeling stressed with trying to make sure that we have enough money to pay the bills and eat. I am been extra stressed the past few weeks with the weird hours Jeremy is working. He has about 37 hours a week right now starting this week and while the pay is crappy at least he is bringing home a paycheck. But now we are spending more money on gas and since he is working overnights he gets hungry and stops to buy junk food. 2 nights a week he is doing a double shift. 5 hours in Oxnard and then 6 hours in Thousand Oaks with only an hour in between for him to get to the next position.

We finally were able to move all the rocks from the flower bed in front of the house and lay down new weed paper. Of course doing something like that always costs more than you planned. We decided not to put the rocks back and went to Lowes to look at what options there were. He really liked the black bark. I honestly didnt care what he picked as long as it was cheap. The bark ended up being $4.97 a bag so we got 2 to see how many we will need. As it turnsout we need at least 5 or 6 we are going to wait to buy more so I can buy a few bags at a time. Maybe in 3 months it will be done.
