I’d like to thank myself…

It’s 9:15AM and currently the theme for Saturday Night Fever is playing on a commercial in the background and Mom is dancing in my kitchen.

Not my Mom but oh so close….

Boomer and Hank are exhausted from their morning walks and laying on the lazy boy and sofa respectively and the bird is trying to clean out Boomer’s ears with his tongue which surprisingly he doesn’t mind.

My house is sort of like this,

bird house

but with more dogs and one bird.

Over the weekend we had our annual neighborhood garage sale and craft fair hence my absence on Thursday and Friday.  You see, I planned and organized it for the entire neighborhood.  Myself.  Did I mention I planned and organized it for the entire neighborhood all by myself?  Well, I did.  I am also exhausted.  The good news is, I’m 600 dollars richer.

Well, actually, I was 600 dollars richer but now it’s more like 200 dollars richer.  Did I mention that mom is in town?  And have I told you how much mom and I like to shop?  Because we do and I need a lot of things for the new house.  Okay, maybe not need, maybe more like want.  I want a lot of new things for the new house.  So we shop.  And shop.  And then we shop.

show me the money

I’m helping the economy so much.  Aren’t you proud of me?

In spite of all I had going on last week and boy did I have a lot going on because, hey I work for myself and my husband, I write a lil ol blog, take care of two dogs a bird and the occasional neighborhood stray plus I just closed on two houses in one day, so why not plan and organize a community yard sale and craft fair for thousands of people, right?  Sure, throw some more at me, I can handle it.

Despite all of that, I still managed to run over 15 miles and get some physical therapy in so I’m all kinds of pleased with myself!

In the words of the late great Dee Dee Ramone, “I’d like to thank myself, and congratulate myself, and give myself a big pat on the back.”

Now I better go get some work done before I get too full of myself.

How was your weekend?

Do you spend extra cash as soon as you get it or are you a saver?  (I buy all the running things!)

  1. I am tired just hearing about all of this…

    And I save money….I guess you could say I was born in the wrong generation because even though we have to open our oven with help from a screwdriver and it smokes a lot while we cook pizza’s (even after cleaning) my hubby wants to get a new one and I refuse….hey, its not broke so why do we need a new one??

    • I’m the exact same way about my car. I swear it can be sputtering and leaking fluids from all areas within but I will NOT buy another one until I absolutely have to. And really, why should I because I can run or bike almost anywhere I need to go, right? 😉
