Three Day Weekend Equals Three Visits to a Craft Store

This past weekend was busy.  It seemed like there was no time to do anything.  I hoped for more progress than I got on my list but I don't know when we could have done more.Saturday I paid bills, worked on budget and we went to my sister-in-laws wedding.  Sunday we went to several stores. … Continue reading Three Day Weekend Equals Three Visits to a Craft Store

Long Long Day

Ken left for Georgia yesterday.  Vicki and I took him to the airport at 3:30 in the morning.  This meant we were up at 2:30. Not being a morning person, this was not a great start to the day.  Vicki and I were home by 6:00 but we didn't come back and go back to … Continue reading Long Long Day

Back to Couponing and Crocheting and Publishing

Saturday afternoon I spent a chunk of time clipping coupons - for myself, my sister, and my daughters.  For the first time in nearly six weeks, I made a grocery list based on my apps and coupons. Ken went grocery shopping early on Sunday as he usually does.  He overspent by a little but I … Continue reading Back to Couponing and Crocheting and Publishing

Plan Shot To Hell

If you've read anything in my blog, you know I'm a list maker.  I make to do lists all the time and work off them to keep myself on track.  All week I've had a list I'm working off.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not one who schedules every second.  But I wrote up a … Continue reading Plan Shot To Hell

Coupons, Rebates, Errands, and a Dozen Other Things

Last night after a rough week for me, I started thinking about all the things I need to get done.  I've had two requests for possibly paid writing assignments, as well as a number of errands to run today.  My brain was going a mile a minute so I did what I always do.  I … Continue reading Coupons, Rebates, Errands, and a Dozen Other Things

Bad Sleep

Ken got the shopping done early this morning.  With my list, coupons, sales flyer shopping and rebates, he saved over $20!  This is about 20% of what he spent. Last night I made a list of what I wanted to get done today.  I meant to get up early, get to work, and keep at … Continue reading Bad Sleep

More Crochet Projects Published!

Yesterday I worked on the computer for the morning - personal business, editing, and so on.  After spending a lot of time on the computer, I crashed on the couch only to be thrown out of the living room - sort of.  Ken wanted to rearrange. This morning, Ken did the grocery shopping and saved … Continue reading More Crochet Projects Published!

Motivation Needed

I meant to get up early today and get to work on publishing.  That didn't happen.  Instead I slept late and only got up when one of my daughters called.  I chatted with her, worked on sales, coupons, rebates, and so on. Ken is off now to go do stuff with his family.  I'm going … Continue reading Motivation Needed

No Jammies Today

It was supposed to be a stay in my jammies day and do little to nothing.  That didn't work.  I got up to an email from Joann with one of the things I wanted for a project being on sale. After spending part of the morning on marketing, I got organized and Ken and I … Continue reading No Jammies Today

Coupons, Crocheting, and Juggling…

After I finish a manuscript and switch to something else, I feel like I'm not accomplishing anything.  I have to remind myself there is more to life than writing.  Sunday, I spent the day listening to an audio book and going through the stack of coupons.  Since my stack was so large, it took me … Continue reading Coupons, Crocheting, and Juggling…
