New Gun & Mortgage Payment

March 5th, 2014 at 07:08 am

Mortgage payment hit. My new balance is $50,702.12! I do love seeing those numbers go down.

Another long night of listening to the baby monitor. I did get more sleep than before, but I am still exhausted. It is slowly warming up. We are in the 20s today, by Friday we are suppose to hit the 50s. The goats just need to hold off a couple more days and they will be fine with or without my help.

Husband works at a gun & ammunition warehouse. Everyday he gets to handle all types of guns. He has wanted one for a while, but didnt know which one. So for the last 8 months or so he has been saving his money and handling all the guns he can and asking questions to the gun smith.

Well he finally picked one out. A Smith & Wesson 9mm A&P. It retails for around $600 but he gets to buy them at whole sale price because of his job so that saved us $150.

Well when he ordered it yesterday, they gave him another 35% discount for being an employee, so he only had to pay less than $400 including tax and everything! I love his job!

Now he has extra cash on hand, that he can spend on ammo.

The funny thing is, he was out of checks so he had to use mine. Which are pink and have Pooh Bear on them...

Everyone who works there is a red neck complete with camo and a beard... They call him pretty boy because he is good looking and most definitely not a hick, which I think is hilarious. He was complaining all day that they will never let him live this down.

Needless to say we are going to get more checks on Saturday.

Haha.

    What does he use the gun for? Hunting? Target shooting?

  2. klarose Says:

    He doesnt hunt. (we are both too soft hearted)

    It is just a hand gun for keeping in the house for safety. We live way out in the country, so its nice to have around. He will also use it for target shooting I am sure.

    The baby monitor sounds like a good idea. If you could provide a warming pad for the goats, would the moms have any instinct about getting the babies over to it when they are born? Was your breed of goats developed in a region that essentially has no winter?

    Congrats on less mortgage debt! Cute story about the checks and his gun purchase.

    Joan I don't believe the goats would be smart enough to have them on a heating pad unfortunately. They kind of just drop them wherever they are at. Which is also why a heat lamp isnt always effective. All baby animals can get cold when they are born and wet. Its just a matter of how fast the mama dries them. We are almost out of the danger zone, just a few more days. We had some kids born when it was below zero last year. They were immediately scooped up and taken inside. As soon as they were dry, they went back out and were fine.

    Thanks for all the well wishes on the mortgage!
