Thursday, April 24, 2014

I made a list of things I want to do to the home............and it is a long list!! It includes outdoors as well as indoors. top to bottom! Man! It sure can get overwhelming. Next. Put it is order from first to last!
This part is going to take some time! I am enjoying myself!

Hope you are enjoying your Thursday!

    Sounds fun, even if it is a bit overwhelming... I can tell you have great taste, though, so here's to you and making the home even better than what it already is.

    When I make a list like this I don't worry about any order other than alphabetical. That way I'm sure to get done even the things that would be lower on my list. emoticon Have a great day filled with a lot of emoticon Donna

Finances

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I have always been in charge of finances. I have always hated being in charge of finances. I messed it up 2 times in the last 3 years and as of January 1, hubs took over. I mean like completely took over. My stress level has gone down so much since then. I have always in the past been a bit of a control freak mainly because I went 8 yrs single again so the money was all up to me. If I succeeded, I got the credit, if I failed, I got the blame. I was so terrible at it when I was single. I just always made sure there was enough in to cover all the bills. So never sat down and did it right. Hubs on the other hand, when we first were married went on this crazy buy buy buy streak. Made me a nervous wreck! So now that he has taken over, I have very little stress. He has turned into this total responsible money man.
He even started a Christmas savings account! I know! I am shocked too!!!
So happy to have the stress off me! He is doing an awesome job so kudos to hubs!
woohoo!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

  OMG, my DH and I agreed from the get-go that I would manage the finances and it worked well. The when I got ill he had to take over. OMG, total disaster. BUT once that was straightened out, he became Mr. Responsible too! Miracles do happen, don't they!

    My hub did it for a few years and it was nice actually. I am now back in the saddle but it's going okay. But he constantly hounds me..are you putting some in savings!! I know it's a good thing but some weeks there isn't leftovers!!

    My hubby also has control of the finances. I usually don't like to use my debit card cuz I don't know how much money we have! But we have a little tax money left over so I bought Emilie a pair of $4 shoes today at a consignment shop. Feels good to buy things myself!

Spring Cleanin'

Monday, April 21, 2014

When you get home after a weekend gone, why does the house fall to pieces when you unpack? I started cleaning....then just kept going........I have this sun room off the dining room that is used basically as a "just throw it in there" room in the winter. Wow. I am FINALLY getting the last of the boxes from Christmas put away! shame shame shame shame!
Well, hubs will be so happy when he gets home tomorrow though. Sun shining in and looking all beautiful. Meanwhile, back to work. Hope I can burn off some of those leftovers that I wish not to talk about!
Have a Marvelous Monday all!

    Kim, I am so thankful that I don't have a basement, other wise I would stock pile my junk there. I do trash out the computer-craft-library room. I keep trying to fight my bad habits, of being an information or cook book junkie. But clutter is clutter, am working on my every area of this. eva
