A Good Kick in the Crackers

It's Saturday here at the Manor, and I've got a buttload of chores to do.  Tim is sitting upright, so I've propped him at his desk, while I tornado this joint. 

Got the repair bill for the van.  600 smackers.  Good news: No rash, no stress eating.  Instead I'm focused on rebuilding my new coupon station area.  The last one got moved and I miss it.  Plus now that I'm healing up, I'm really gonna have to give couponing a good kick in the crackers.

I learned that saying from Lurker and Rayolla.

Meanwhile, this morning I made the best drink, ever.  Pomegranate, cranberry and grape.  This stuff is NOTHING like store-bought.  Not even in the same ballpark.

Well, I best get to those chores.  My goal: be done no later than four, and couponing for the rest of the night.  Probably have to feed Tim throughout the day and make sure he doesn't flop over in his chair.  Because I really am a good wife.  Even if I didn't him bout the poo.

Cauldron of Poo

I get so excited at the first snowfall.  Last night it was snowing, and I LOVED it.  But then early this morning it was REALLY REALLY snowing.  So at 3:30 AM I took pictures, while Wiggy played and Bug ate snow.

Then later this morning we lost electricity.  So I concocted a cauldron of chicken soup.  Took three hours to make, which is how long we were out of power.  I didn't mind it.

Meanwhile, Poopyhead is still sick.  He's starting to smell funny.  But Wiggy and Bug don't care.  Wiggy rolled in poo but Tim is so clogged up, he doesn't know it.  I should probably let him know, but I thought I'd tell you first.

No Stinky Pits

The 19th was my last day of work.  Feels weird.  Think I'd have more to say than that, but I got nothing.  Still adjusting.  Don't feel like I'm out yet. 

Meanwhile Tim is STILL SICK, poor baby.  All stuffed.  The pups take turns snuggling next to him.  Such good dogs.

Meanwhile, Tim needed tissues as my stockpile was empty (bad couponer).  Anyway, here's the deal.  Got paid 91 cents from each pack of razors.  Used the overage +coupon to snag tissues.  Tissues cost 22 cents.  I paid that with my overage jar, making everything here, FREE.

That's all I got today, folks.  Until next post, boogie boogie.

Aside from the other freebies, I snagged all these FREE as well.
No stinky pits, here.  Nooo, sir.

Who Wants a FREE Movie?

If YOU want a FREE movie at the Redbox, use coupon code -- 9MXW2LPC.  It's that easy.  These come around often and anyone can use the code.

Meanwhile, I rented a free animated Halloween movie, and I'm about to put my sore little feet up and veg out.

Catch ya next time and boogie boogie.

Boogerbutts & Buttfaces

Thanks for all great comments on my last post.  That was mighty nice of you, Boogerbutts and Buttfaces.  I'm still at about a level 7 with stress.  Though yesterday when I was couponing, I got down to about a 5/6.

Yesterday, Tim put the kitchen table in the living room so I could coupon and watch baking shows at the same time.  Best couponing day off resting, ever.  Got most of my compartments done.  More on that in another post.

Meanwhile, look what the girls at the chiropractor's office gave me.  That's a stack of money, right there.  Time for me to amp up my coupon super hero powers.   It's go time.

I quit my job on Saturday and for the last two days I've been stress eating.  This morning I woke up and said, "I'm done.  No more stress eating.  Made my choice, time to move forward."

And that's just how I feel right now.  Ready to move on.

Am I still stressed about leaving my paycheck behind?  Absolutely.  But when I got home on Friday after 10 hours in prep, I was banged up.  Tim said he wanted me to quit, because he didn't want me to hurt anymore.  I fought him a little but by the next morning I handed in my two weeks.

I don't know how it's all going to work out.  Thankfully, my car passed inspection and we don't have to get another car.  Which is good because if we had to spend more money right now, I'm pretty sure my head would pop off.

So that's where I'm at today.  Quit my job.  No new job ready.  No stress eating allowed.  Time to get healed up.

Meanwhile, Tim says we'll find a new job for me once I'm healed up, but until then he wants me to take advantage of the time and write, bake, cook, and coupon. 

He is the best husband in the history of ever.

3 Year Blogger Birthday

I remember when Tim picked my name and created this blog.  Loved the name but I fought him on the whole blogger thing.  Told him it wasn't for me.  Boy was I ever wrong because I love blogging.  It's so flippin' fun.  And you Boogerbutts are The BEST.

Thanks for reading and boogie, boogie, boogie, boogie.

Eyeballs & Fingers

I haven't been out of bed this early yet this week and you know what? It's cold and dark outside.  Car warming up and the stars are out.  Spooky.  I like it.

Have a groovy Friday.  I'm off to make brownies and chop veg.  It's a weird feeling today, because since I've been home sick, I haven't had any neck or spine pain.  But you know, I'm really ready to leave this time.  That is, if the other job works out, or if I find something else.

Eyeballs and fingers crossed.  That's all from me.  You Boogerbutts have an oogie boogie day.  I'm headed to Tim Horton's for hot chocolate pumpkin and a jalapeno bagel. 

Yummy in my tummy.

I found this picture, now I want to find the mug.

Burnt Rubber and Smoke Can't be Good

I broke the washer.  Saw smoke.  Shut everything down.  No fires.  Opened all the windows and doors.  House stinky. 

On the bright side, the pups and house are safe and now that I'm less stuffy, I'm free to enjoy the smell of freshly burnt rubber.  Silver lining, that's what that is.

Here's more good news, I put my hands on the back of my neck and there's ZERO swelling.  It's all neck.  No puff.

Tim's boss said she'd put in a call for me for a new job, don't want to say too much right now, but it would get me away from the long hours hunched over a prep table.

I'm ready.  Really, really ready.

Did I Ever Tell You That I Wrote a Book?

It's true.  I wrote a Halloween kid's book, that I never did anything with.  Been years since I've seen it.  Not even sure if the copy I printed is the most current.  But since I'm home sick anyway, I figured I'd give it a read.

Meanwhile, I feel like Halloween is passing me by.  So many fun things to do and I'm stuck in bed.

This blows chunks.  Here's hoping my book doesn't.

Chubba Bubba Monday: Final Post

Thanks to all you Boogerbutts for reading, and thanks to those who played along.  I've had a ton of fun, learned a lot, but now it's time for me to close the CBM series.

So in the words of Porky Pig ....
