Since I'm losing my job on September 30th, my husband and I have cut back on our spending to fit within his budget. Yes, I TOTALLY get that we're privileged enough that we can get by on just his income. I've noticed that while there are a TON of how-to-cut-back-on-your-spending-you-heathen advice, not many people are … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Budgeting
I've mentioned that my Job Has Been Eliminated, and so I'm looking for work. It's possible, at least for the near future, that I'll be working with my dad and husband in their business. Which is super exciting. And TERRIFYING. See, when I was at my sickest, I worked with my dad. And my work … Continue reading Nerves, All the Nerves
This photo is a place holder from last year because, who's the fool who forgot a camera this year? Yeah, that would be me. Tundra had a ton of fun, and my husband walked around following him to keep him out of trouble. He was well behaved though! Tundra can't swim though, so he … Continue reading Puppy Pool Paddle 2019
I go to bed pretty early which means my room is bright when I go to bed despite having curtains. So I was cuddled with the husband and trying to fall asleep, and it was just. Not. Working. I felt around on the shelf and couldn't find my eye mask, meaning it probably fell behind … Continue reading Eye Masks EVERYWHERE!
My mom and I celebrated our Birthdays this weekend (not on the actual days because life) and the week was a whirlwind of Birthdays! Both my mom and my father-in-law were born the same day. I was born two days after and share my father-in-law's dad's birthday. Basically I was my mom's birthday present, and … Continue reading I Was My Momma’s Birthday Present
So, this is kind of my husband's story, but he gave me permission to post it on my blog. My husband was driving to work early last week, when he saw a deer at the side of the road stomping on something. He beeped his horn, the deer bolted, and he got out to check … Continue reading We Rescued A Kitten… From A Deer?
Here's our last photo of our three cars together. My husband's is the blue Subaru Legacy Sedan, my current car is the green Subaru Outback Wagon, and in the background is our sad Subaru Forester. The SF generation of Subaru's have problems with blowing head gaskets, which our lovely Forester did. This was especially frustrating, … Continue reading Goodbye Forester
For the first time this year, our neighborhood has been setting off fireworks, and this has been going off for most of two weeks. Tundra hates them. He whines and paces and tips over every water dish in the house. Repeatedly. Then he whines because he's thirsty, and if you fill the dish again he'll … Continue reading The Floof Hates Fireworks
When we were staying at my Uncle's in Minneapolis, they had us stay in the back room of the Mother-in-Law addition, and I thought it was lovely. We had a blow up mattress, and SO MANY windows, and I couldn't resist taking a photo. Nothing else exciting here - hope you have an awesome weekend … Continue reading Where We Stayed This Last Week
One of my ex's had this amazing blanket his grandmother had made for him - it was blanket sized but the top was made of jean patches quilted together. It was warm and comfy and delightfully heavy, very easy to sleep under. I loved this quilt, but when we broke up it was his. I'm … Continue reading Jean Quilt
