Wednesday, Hubby is out with the Scouts!

     Yippee!, hubby is out for the next 4 days with the Scouts!  I don't have to cook, I can do what I want, well within reason.  But I love it when he is gone.  Don't get me wrong I miss him, but he is extra work.
     I feel like I have a mini vacation.  I am going to clean the house and maybe it will stay clean.  D#3 came home last night crying, the clutch is out on her new car.  We knew this was going to be the first issue.  I told her to calm down, we would take it across to neighbor and have it fixed.  You would think the car was a child.
     I sewed $150.00 worth of product yesterday and then continued to work on the costume.  I have decided that I will not do any non-gratis work until I have completed at least  $100.00 worth of paying work.  One of a kind costumes are fun but they don't pay the bills.  The shop was busy yesterday, I hope it is busy today. I feel very blessed having this skill that brings in so much money.  Have I said that before?  But I do fell overwhelmed at times, I am so grateful.
Out My Window:  I was able to get out in the front yard and weed for about an hour last night.  It looks  good.  Now I need to finish in the back, but not today.

     I had to fill Hubby's truck with gas yesterday, $63.00, pick-up meds $37.00 and buy a camp pad $14.90.
I also wrote 2 checks for daughter #2 for a total of $250.00.  Which I will be reimbursed but I have to cover them, so I will have to go get money out of savings again.  Ugh!  Scary,  But Friday is payday so I will be fine.  I can eat cold cereal for dinner tonight is I want.  But I have a chicken in the fridge that is thawed so I will put it in the crock pot and cook it up.  I make a bang up chicken salad. Yum! 

     Does anyone else love it when their spouse travels?

Have a great and productive day!



  1. I love having the bed to myself....enjoy having your cereal for dinner!

  2. I actually don't like it when he travels because I am managing 4 kids alone and it really does take both of us. However, I LOVE it during the day when he is at work and the kids are in school. I start to feel like a person again with my own thoughts.

  3. Haha! I did have cold cereal for dinner tonight!!! It's way too hot for anything warm and hey it was there! :) Enjoy your "freedom".

  4. I had a great time when mine was gone to the Jamboree in BC for 10 days :-)

  5. I enjoy my time when the BF is at work and I am home by myself. Peace and quiet!
