Tuesday Talk / 10 On Tuesday...

It's that time to do some linkin' up for some Tuesday Talk / 10 on Tuesday.  You wanna join in?  Well, of course you do!  Head on over to visit Jessica at Sweet Little Ones & Karli over at Sept. Farm.

This week:  Ten Reasons I'm Currently Broke.

  1.  New Vehicle.  I had to purchase some goodies for it - window visors, new way to charge/play my music, etc.  I haven't even gotten new decals on it yet but those will be happening.

  2.  Old Vehicle.  I had to take her & get her washed up & the oil changed before putting her in storage for the next year (we're saving the Cobalt for Sunshine - hopefully she'll have a job & good grades to be able to have it).

  3.  Leonardo.  I had to go buy The Revenant last week cuz it's so good.  Plus, my hubby loves Leonardo & I don't want him to miss having this movie that finally won his boy an Oscar.

  4.  Communions/Confirmations.  It seems that this is all we're doing now - "K" had her First Communion on the 17th & "G" had his Confirmation this past Sunday.  So, gifts had to be bought & such.

  5.  House Projects.  I still have my house that I bought when I was twenty-two & my brother & his girlfriend are renting it.  Some projects have been done so I pay for the materials & they do the work.  I sometimes help.  But it seems that there is always something to do.  Next, new interior doors.

  6.  Vacation.  I'm still trying to recover from vacation.  I tapped my savings account when I bought us tickets to Sea World & now I have to try to replenish it.

  7.  Harry Potter.  I have decided that since I enjoy reading the books along with the movie scores, I've bought the first three soundtracks in the last month.  But I really enjoy the music & I think that I'll get my money's worth out of them.

  8.  Movie Treats.  I went to the movies last night & when I go with my friend, Courtney, she pays for the tickets & I get the treats.  Well, I saw that they had pretzel bites & I had to have them.  Well, after everything was said & done, I spent over $20 on treats.  Eeek!

  9.  New Vehicle...Again.  Because I am so excited about my new vehicle, I tend to find reasons to just drive.  I pretty much just drove around on Friday night wasting gas.  Probably not smart but it's what I wanted to do at the time.

  10.  Bills.  I have too many bills & I don't like it.  I got rid of one credit card just to have to replace it with another when we were afraid of what the vet bills would be when Chandler was sick.  It was still more than $300 but now I have another damn bill to pay.  Ugh.  Credit cards are the devil!


  1. I will be adding new vehicle to the reasons I am broke soon too! It sounds great that you love it so much that you just want to drive it around though!

    1. Getting a new vehicle is always fun...until that first payment comes around. Ha, ha!

  2. I can totally relate to this post. I always have a reason I'm broke. Currently, it's graduation gifts.

    1. I'm sure that'll start soon as well. I've already gotten one graduation party invite.

  3. Paul is the one who loves Leo?! I know Mike resents my having a lingering crush on him from the Titanic days. I watched The Basketball Diaries recently (never saw it before) and then wrote a benign tweet pleasantly remembering my '90s crush on Leo. Mike flipped out about my "fawning all over" Leo on Twitter! Whatever; I cried and clapped when he finally won his Oscar!

    1. Oh yes, Leo is Paul's man crush & I'm okay with it. Ha! & you can tell Mike that you'll be safe from Leo, girls that are above the age of about 25 are not on Leo's radar, he likes 'em real young. Apparently, he's dating a nineteen year old, did you know that?!

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
