Came home from running errands last night and Hubby was home. Wash machine was running so I knew he was not here to stay long. Spent the evening talking to him and did not get the things done that I needed to get done last night.
I told myself that I could not blog until I got most of the sewing done. I still have 3 army uniforms and a pair of tux pants to do. I really need to do a run through of the upstairs. I did empty the fridge and I need to empty all the trash cans. Nothing is ironed for me to wear to Missoula and I have to gas the car and pack. I just went next door to get neighbor girl to watch the animals. I feel like I can't get anything done without 10 more things cropping up. So frustrating. But I am sure everyone has those days. At least I have no one here to really interrupt me and that helps.
I purchased a new vacuum last night and I really like it. I did not want to spend the money right now but as we have all hardwood and animals and asthma not having a vacuum was not an option. $156.00 at Wal-Mart. It has a 3 year warranty and picks up dog and cat hair like crazy. I told Hubby I was using some fire money and putting the rest away for our Trip.
I will pick my sister up tomorrow and then we will have lunch with daughter #2 and then drive on to Missoula. I hate to be away from the shop when it is finally getting busier, I will carry my cell phone and put a note on the door. People are usually really understanding and will come in when I get home.
Out My Window: Still very hot, I need to clean the chicken coop this afternoon. FUN!
It is so weird to have all the bills paid. I feel like I am forgetting something and I need to check dates and then I realize that I am done until the 25th. It is a nice feeling but it takes some getting used to. My dream is to have $3000.00 in a house account that all the bills automatically draw from and put everything on auto pilot. But I have never been out of debt enough to justify having more than a $1000.00 emergency fund. Someday. Can you imagine how nice it would be to just fund one account once a month and then set back? I mean enough money to pay the house, car, gas, utilities, insurance, monthly CC bill. Oh to dream. That dream is getting closer.
Have a great and productive day.
