Since I’m on a limited budget for crafts for a little while, and since I don’t want the blog to go quiet… I’m doing another Currently post! Check out the first one I did here. And don’t worry, I have a wreath and some fall decorations in the works right now that I’ll post about soon!
For some reason I’m disliking a lot right now, which I hate. I try to always be positive, but things are getting the best of me right now. But, I’m going to take these things I’m disliking and put a much needed positive spin on them. I’m disliking that the GLI got totaled, as much as I hated how much money and time Travis put into that car, I still loved it. She was a beauty. Plus side though, is that Travis is going to get a truck, finally! He’s wanted a truck forever now, but it just was not the right time. Now it is. Also, he found a new hobby. Since his Volkswagen will no longer be his hobby, his new hobby is gun. Guns, Trucks & Country Music. #MyDreamMan Another thing I’m disliking lately is that my brand new radio in my car is not working, plus side is that I’m sort of glad it’s not because I’ve been getting really bad sinus headaches lately and the last thing I want is noise of any kind. I’m also disliking the fact that camping is pretty much over. We go this weekend yet and then we go for a quick trip over Halloween and that is all. Plus side, I’m soooo looking forward to next camping season. More mixed drinks & More fun. Plus, I’m looking forward to hanging out with my cousins fiance more. This is the first year that she’s coming camping with us, and she is fun as hell. Plus, she gets drunk and yells how much she loves Mailbox Journey. Good times.
Travis bought me a ginormous Snapple Peach Tea last night when we stopped at Sheetz for some grub. It’s so big, that I couldn’t even finish it last night, so I brought the rest of it with me to work. I’m also going to be drinking some mixed drinks starting tomorrow night, since I’ll be out camping. I’m anxious to mix up some new drinks, and hopefully come out with something delicious to post about next week. I have to say though, that lately I’ve been drinking a ton of water. At home and at work. I still have the occasional snapple, or cup of juice, but it’s mostly been water. I use to drink a ton of water when I was a teenager. In the summer time, I’d walk around with a jug full of water, I even named him but I can’t recall what his name was… but anyways, I’m glad I’m getting back to drinking a ton of water.
I’ve been learning to control my spending. I’d usually go to the craft store and buy everything and anything that I loved, but I’ve learned from Travis to “subsidize”. Example, when we go to the discount store Ollies we fill the cart up with a bunch of stuff, and then every couple aisles, we’ll go thru the cart and be like do we really need this, or that. So by the time we get to the register, we only have a few things that we really want to buy. I’ve learned to use this method when I go to the craft store. I’ve also set a budget for my crafts. Last night I went to the craft store with a budget of $45. (Actually a budget of $40, since I spent $5 at Dollar Tree earlier in the day) I also was armed with a list, which is critical so I don’t overspend. I knew that I wanted to make a wreath and look at their clearance fall decorations. I somehow wondered into the home decor clearance aisle though, that’s when this subsidize lesson took action. They had this big, bright beautiful ceramic owl for sale. 40% off. $10. OMG I WANT! I decided to walk away for a little bit and go to the aisles that I’m suppose to be going to, still thinking about that owl, which I know would put me over my budget. I went into the Fall clearance aisles, and they had beautiful leaf garland for $7. So I made a decision. I chose the garland over that owl and I came out of the store with two dollars and some change left over. Win.
The fact that tomorrow is Friday and I only have to work 7 hours instead of 8! I’m also loving the fact that this weekend is a camping weekend. Also, that fall is coming, my moccasins are in at Payless, the new scarf I bought last month while anticipating winter (Hey, it snowed here last year in October!) and just how perfect in my eyes my little family is of Travis and Coco and those moments at home that just make me giggle at how silly we are, and all of our inside jokes involving Coco and her kitty helicopters, her hammer tail and anything else we make up about her secret kitty life. I love it all.
Trying to get my Day In the Life Post ready for tomorrow. I wanted to do this for the Blogiversary, but I didn’t get the chance. So this morning when I woke up, I thought today is the day. Document everything. I’ve been doing just that for the past four or five hours now, and I just hope that I don’t forget to document things as the rest of the day goes by. If I don’t forget, you’ll see that post tomorrow. :)
What are you currently Disliking, Drinking, Learning, Loving, Managing?
