@Derbel McDillet Haha, "loosing." I guess that kind of works when it comes to bowel control.
Friday – Fishing licenses for Mr. McDillet and myself (and I?), $75. Hotdogs, buns, and various snackie bits for Friday night bonfire, ingredients for chocolate babka, around $30. Saturday – Hopefully $0, pruning fruit trees, fencing our beehive (the bears are waking up!). Sunday – Also hopefully $0, fishing, maybe starting some seeds indoors. So around $110-120 Wow, this weekend makes my life sounds way more idyllic than it is. I live in a trailer and my dog seems to be loosing control of his bowels, if that helps balance the picture.
@Sarah Rain@facebook Just wanted to chime in to say that I totally agree. It seems like every year there is a new "necessity" that comes with a monthly bill. Blurgh.
@PicNic I lucked out in that I was gifted an older lady's giant stash of quilting fabric after her death. Probably a good 100 pounds of random half and quarter yard pieces of a rainbow of cotton. Not always the pieces I would have picked myself, but it's been fun to work with.
@PicNic Fellow Billfold quilters! Yay!
Friday - stopping at Aldi on the way home from work, maybe $40; watching Vikings and Portlandia recorded last night,drinking beer already stocked, and eating Chicken Yakisoba from Budget Bytes,$0 (groceries for dinner from Aldi trip above) Saturday - attending free stream water quality monitoring training, followed by dinner at a Venezuelan place, maybe another $40? Sunday - Snowstorm! Maybe I'll make fudge with ingredients on hand. So hopefully a total of around $80.
I would love to hear from Beth and Forest regularly. More traveling life!
That's why I took a less interesting job with tons of paid time off! I can be interesting in my 2 paid months of absence!

I love the image above. Ladies chop wood, too!
@jennknee Finished them yesterday (thanks, Turbo tax) and getting 3k back! Whoohoo! We withhold at the highest rate, which I know there are good arguments against, but it works for us.
