    Default Miserly Monday 6-21

    Busy busy day for us! And I HAVE to spend money today.

    Have to pay the cable, gas/electric, water/trash bills; make the car payment; do at least one load of laundry; take care of some veggies I picked from the garden yesterday; fold and put away two baskets of clothes that have just been waiting around for me; prep supper (I'm thinking a crockpot meal since it'll be around 103 here today ); and vaccum the living room and hallway.

    WHEW!!!! Lots to do so I'd better get to it!

    Have a great Monday!

    It's officially summer (although the weather has been weird lately).

    Today I had the morning to myself. Diva came back from the weekend at the ex's house dressed in long sleeves and jeans

    We had a leg-shaving lesson today with something like Nair and a plastic bladeless razor. She did well, but giggled because it tickled. She isn't ready for a real razor quite yet.

    We'll make lunch together (thinking about corndog cupcakes). I'll precook dinner before we head out tonight. The library is having a kick-off party for the kids summer reading program.

    I'll keep knitting on the little Yule projects I have going and Diva will read a few chapters in her book.

    All in all, a quiet, no spend day.

    Lady_V, corndog cupcakes sound like fun! Is the recipe posted on here somewhere?

    Today we are off and running. DD1 had bball camp at 9:00 in one town, and DD2 had girl scout camp at 9:00 in another town. Of course. So I dropped the older one off early, and then took the younger one. All the while ds was peacefully slumbering away at home. lol I tried to wake him up, but he wasn't moving.

    Today ds and I are going to town for haircuts and to purchase a fishing pole for dh for a belated Father's Day present. I also need to do laundry, clean up dd's room since she got a load of toys from her babysitter, and finish mowing. I better get busy myself!

    Have an awesome day!

    A little late on this but I worked from 8-4. I haven't done a whole heck of a lot since I got home. The heat at work is just draining me and it felt so good sitting in front of the air conditioning when I got home. I have put dishes and clean clothes away. I have to fix dinner, hubby will be home in about 1/2 hour. I want to do some reading and hit the hay. See you all tomorrow.
