aaahhh, enjoying

I work at home so I can make extra money and enjoy life, however, I very rarely “enjoy” it, so today I said “screwit”  I am now outside, with a glass of tea, under the patio, enjoying the radio and doing my work.

This is work / life balance….now if the dogs would just stop barking and whining, all would be good!

Double Duty Clean and Save

If you use the clothes to clean makeup off your face, before throwing them away after cleaning your face, use them to clean up the bathroom.

This way you get a clean face and bathroom with out having to spend extra money to do it.

Super easy way to save money, remember don’t flush them, throw them in the trash.

OMG…. where is my rut??

You go along, thinking, you getting a good schedule down, get up, do some work from home, go to yoga , come home do stuff around the house, people come home.  Repeat.

Then boom, your husband decides to move (again it was a good choice), then comes the holidays (moving in and selling a home, kind of hectic) then you end up scheduling an earlier then planned vacay in March because your sis-in-law doesn’t want to go out of the country alone, then your kid is  getting married in May so you are helping with the wedding plans and your son in Montana is going to run a Marathon in June and he wants you there and you are IN a renewal of Vows ceremony in July.

Life can be like diarrhea…shit comes out of now where and keeps you running


I hate when he is right….shit….

so I have to say, my husband was right, the move was a good call.  It is a little smaller town so I have already learned my way around pretty good.  And the best thing is my mom has decided to move closer finally, so she will be 15 min instead of 50 min away.

But still, darn it, I hate when he is right…blththhhh

Just for men my ARSE!

so, as you may remember, I am going grey, now I have GONE grey, seriously, there is very few non-grey hairs growing in….waaaahhhh.

So I thought, why can’t I use Just for Men hair color?  Only 5 minutes?  Easy to do?  So I went online and found nothing that says there is no grey hair is difference for men and women.

So I bought a box, brought it home, and damn it to all if it DID work, no more grey, only took five minutes.  Sheesh.

The difference I could find is that this dye will only dye the grey hairs, so since I dye my hair a little lighter, my roots are a very unnoticable shade darker, but NO GREY baby!

If you highlight your hair, or dye it many shades different then you regular hair color, not sure if would work as good, but for 5 minutes and $6.00 can’t hurt to give it a try!



We have the big stuff done,

but there is now a bunch of little stuff, lights, fans, hanging pictures, shelves ect… I can’t wait for it all to be done.

At least the rain stopped so my fence could be done.  So nice and private and the dogs can’t get out.

Our oldest dog has lost some weight because of going up and down the stairs, he is getting in pretty good shape, except he is getting blind and deaf…..poor guy 😦

Cat is loving having plenty of places to get away from Mushu, she is out a lot more then at the old house.

Mushu is Mushu a total menace as usual…  but so darn cute!

Kitchen Mash-ups

So…we had a pot luck type of xmas eve, and we had way to much food, so I froze some ham, lasagna, meatballs ect.

With the ham bone however, I cooked it down to stock to use in making soups at a later date.

Then I made a soup with the stock, some ham, and lentils, it was pretty darn good.

I made a spaghetti squash, and I unfroze 1/2 a meat ball, the sauce, added tomatoes and mushrooms and cheese…yea baby that be good!

The other day we made tacos, there were some black beans left, I had half a tomato, some mushrooms, spinach and cheese, tossed it all together in a skillet and it was tasty.

I am almost back to my old self and schedule with some tweaks.  Hope to post more later.  Have a great day!

OMG, it is almost done

It seems like FoReVeR since I posted…sorry….house has been a MAJOR reno.  But it is looking good.  Didn’t get it ready enough in time for Thanksgiving, but we had xmas eve here.

Although I just put the tree away yesterday ….. 😦 didn’t have room in the garage until now!

Then fence is almost done, yippeee…..hopefully it will cut down on some noise and since the dog can’t see anything stop some of her barking, plus it gives us more room!

I pulled 4 more potatoes out of my planter..yea baby!  I need to start redoing for this growing season but that is on my “todo” list.

I am happy to be back…..
