I was all set. Wake up. Take on the world. Kickbutt.

That didn't happen.

In better news, we got a LOAD of cleaning done over the weekend and didn't spend a penny at ALDI or on delivery.

I'll take that as a win.

As for today, I'm moving zombie-like as I sort clothes to donate or maybe turn into dog beds. Not sure yet? I also have a HUGE yellow bean bag that we bought last year when Tim was sick. Now, it's just in the way. I might half the bag into two smaller dog beds. Easier to move and clean. Me thinks.

Dunno yet. 

For snack time it's a toss between cinnamon, spelt, chia, flax, maple pecan pancakes or warm potato salad.  

I will need a trip to ALDI again soon, just not today. Gotta rebuild the house account and every penny counts. Making food stretch, stretch, stretch is my jam.  

Lastly, today's cartoon ...

Say hello to my new friends! Gift card + clearance and I'm one happy whisk. Dig this, jogging bras for a tenner each (I got four). Gotta keep my knockers from giving me a black eye when I jog.

That's funny because it's true.

Two pair of jogging shorts and two pair of not quite leggings, not quite sweats. Not sure the correct word so I'll go with comfy and warm for chilly early runs.

In other news, I noticed that once I started working outside the home, I got lazy. Big time. Instead of cooking more, I'd grab crap on the ride home or ask Tim too. Well, forget that nonsense. It's back to homecooked foods and (for me), plant-forward menus. 

I love my veg! 

In other, other news, it's just about the weekend and we're fixin' to hit Barnes for some fun time, driving in the new-to-us car. Lemme tell you, lots of money left the building, for sure. However, the advantage of having two cars outweighs the money spent. Even when the money came from our new house savings.

I've said this many times. I don't see the car engine blowing up as a bad thing. It's not bad. It's not good. It just is. What I choose to do with that and how I turn a situation into fuel, that's what's important.

That's freedom. 

Lastly, I've got my new shorts on, new jogging bra, recently clearanced pink shirt and two braids. I'm lookin' cute and ready for a mini workout, starting with the lawn. 

And that my Boogerbutts is all that's fit to print. 

Off to mow. Whisk, out.

Ya' Gotzta Go!

Hello Boogerbutts! 

It's the weekend and I am very, very excited to say that we got both air conditioners in yesterday and by next week we should have our old car back. The engine blew up. 


Once when Tim drove me to work (I recently quit more on that another day), and the second time at the mechanics. No one hurt, thankfully, that's the most important. As for our down payment for the house, well ... more on that later, long story short, we have to build.

And we will. 

As for today, I'm grooving to the tunes, drinking blueberry tea (oh my yum), and getting crap done. Happy weekend to all and to all a good time.
