On I'd Do Any One Thing For Love (But I Won't Do That)

@Stina Spreadsheet made. Now I just have to actually put the jobs in there, but I've got the post-lunch snoozies.

On I'd Do Any One Thing For Love (But I Won't Do That)

@Stina Buster had his follow up XRay on Monday and they trimmed his claws while he was under sedation but didn't file them so now it's almost worse! His current favorite thing is to crawl up me on the couch, dig his claws into my chest and give me a lick on the face. More painful than cute!

On I'd Do Any One Thing For Love (But I Won't Do That)

My One Thing is to make a spreadsheet of jobs - jobs I've found, when they're due, when I found them, where I found them, etc. I've just been copying and pasting all the links to google doc but lately I've been finding them in the kind of sites that aren't linkable (the body of the page stays the same but the URL doesn't change, whatever that is called). Really should have done this a year ago, usually I'm more organized than this.

On Yes, I Do In Fact Owe My Entire Career to Browsing Reddit

@andnowlights I'm sorry, because I know you've been having trouble sleeping, but I actually just LOL'd at your reddit thread reading. Also I am basically in your professional position and if I ever figure it out I'll let you know.

On Monday Check-in

@andnowlights so tempted, just because making them and selling them for Halloween would be $$$ but I'm not that advanced.

@PicNic I read Noodlehead, In Color Order, and Elsie Marley. I also just followed cashmerette on Instagram.

On Monday Check-in

Friday night I made the Budget Bytes skillet pizza from a week or two ago. Ah-may-zing! Saturday morning I got an early start and spent $60 at target because they had 20% off room essentials in the cartwheel app- got a ton of closet storage, a real stand up ironing board, dog treats, and a few other things. I saved $9 with cartwheel alone. The costco for coffee and frontline, but they only sell that in 6 packs and I didn't want to spend that much so back to target where I got the 3 month supply and a new garbage can for the living room, $47. Hit Jo-ann up and got fabric to make curtains for the bottom of the kitchen carte because everything under is just messy and asymmetrical and has annoyed me for years. I also got three pattern packs for 99 cents each. I was too tired to go across town to trader joes and the sewing shop so I just went home. Snugged dog, and scrubbed the kitchen floor on my hands and knees because I couldn't get the replacement mophead to go on the thing. It freaking sparkles now and made me not feel bad about not cleaning out my closet! I did organize my sewing stuff which was much needed and made the little curtains. Parents and brother came Saturday night and treated to dinner. Then Sunday morning I picked up dog food, $13.70. We all went to trader joes, where my dad picked up $15 worth of groceries for me when he got their stuff and did the same for some tomatoes for me at the neighborhood market :) they treated to lunch and then I had my softball game and we lost horribly but we all hung out for a few hours after and had a lot of fun, and my friend fixed a thing on my new bike and filled up the tires since the dude took our pump with him on his trip. Groceries, $25. Over what I wanted, but I got some necessities and the dude will pay me back for some of this stuff when he gets home.

On How Wizards Do Money: Ron Weasley

This. Was. Awesome. I've never thought of Ron being particularly clever but I think this suits him rather well. Also, I just finished re-watching all of the movies. That epilogue is cringeworthy on so many levels (at least to me), but I really don't understand why they didn't put a little more effort into costuming and hair/makeup, instead of dressing them up in awkward-fitting clothes? Especially Hermione and Ginny. They just look silly.

On The Difficult Task of Putting a Price on Our Pet’s Health

@morecakeplease Holy crap both legs at once?! Good on you for the patience it undoubtedly took to do all that work with her. We are at the end of week eight and yesterday he got his "swagger" back. He really misses his toys - the jumping and shaking and throttling - and he has his follow up Xray on Monday so I am hoping they'll give him the go ahead to resume some of his fun stuff.

On The Difficult Task of Putting a Price on Our Pet’s Health

@BillfoldMonkey We just refilled on Saturday! I wonder if it'll go into the phenobarb level of cost, about $20 a pop? I think he gets the 50mg pills but only takes half at a time and a bottle lasts two months.
