The last few months I have been watching different YouTube videos about budgets and whatnot, then I stumbled upon a few that have these really nice planners and I was fascinated. The more I watched the more I found that I wanted to do the same thing and use a planner. I researched the different planners available and the one that got the most reviews was the Erin Condren which is the most popular, but the most pricey.

I was picking up some things at Target the other day and one of the displays caught my eye as I have never even heard that it was even coming out. It was Kitchen Aid Mini Mixer and I completely fell in love! I know it's pricey but I am more than willing to save whatever I can to purchase one.
Especially since it comes with the same features as the full size one. Just Mini. It's advertised as just as powerful as the regular sized, but it's a smaller foot print. Thanks Kitchen Aid! I am totally sold!

A couple of months ago hubby and I were discussing perhaps having another child. We talked and then we planned and then we would try for baby starting January. Of course there were few things I had to take care of first, like removing my inter-uterine device. That meant going to my OB/GYN, it wasn't all that bad, he let me know that since I wanted to conceive he'd give me prenatal pill with a high folic acid content. He let me know that it will help with development of the child preconception.
Good to know.
Then came the fun part, the aftermath. I won't go into detail but let me just say I should have enjoyed those ten years period free.
So we are trying for a baby. So far no luck but we will keep trying, come hell or high water.
It's January 1ST 2017! Happy New Year! My land lord decided to celebrate by raising the rate, again! I am going to ask for a couple of things, if he really expects me to pay that amount. We're prepared, and not stressed over the change because we have a working budget. We can handle it but it was definitely unexpected.

Changing our mindset when it comes to money is pretty difficult to do when you're set in your ways.

It has been several months since I last blogged and for that I apologize.

I wanted to do so much yesterday! But instead I drank. The thing is I don't usually drink as much as I did yesterday. If I do drink its extremely diluted but not yesterday. I had 3 mixed drinks that equated to 8 large shots. I was drunk, wasted, etc. I wanted to reorganize my kitchen, didn't happen, wanted to redo my closet, nope. I suppose I'd have to wait to do it another day when I am not so hung over….
Last week I had a meeting with my kids' teachers (by their request) and one of them was my daughter's reading teacher. She freaked out a bit when she conveyed the message that her teacher wanted to talk to me. She's a bit of a nervous kid, bites her fingernails, and she has practically no nails to speak of. Anyway I went and met up with this collage looking guy with a book bag (should have been my first clue that he was the reading teacher) and we talked at length about her and how her reading and comprehension level were the highest in the grade level. He handed me a thick stack of papers and said that it was a book list (to my surprise I actually read some of the books on the list) that most Advanced Placement classes used. I mentioned trying to get her to read Animal Farm, I think he was talking to himself when he said 'Oh, that's a great idea!' I think I may have made his class harder for his students. He also stated that he was jealous over the fact that she brought (my) Jim Butcher books for free reading time, he confessed to me to looking all over for his books. I told him that I had one of this book autographed the last time he came to the Phoenix Comicon. So we parted ways and I was pretty relieved that she wasn't in trouble, since she's a sass master at home.
After putting in some extra hours in work this morning and a quick stop to Dollar Tree for a few cleaning supplies (and some flash cards for my son). I roped in my husband and my oldest daughter into helping me catalog our Movies and Video Games. Wow, we have a lot! Some duplicates, so those most likely will be traded in for store credit at our usual haunt of Bookman's. Not only did I make a list, we also dusted them off and reorganized them into some semblance of order. I think this is a step in the right direction. Now I need to get the kids to help me spring clean while they're off of school. Wish me luck!

My cat has not been fixed yet and I know she was in heat a few weeks ago and now she's looking a bit tubby. I'm worried that she got pregnant and will soon have kittens. Don't get me wrong I love kittens, just not when MY cat has kittens. I think that I need to save up some money so I can get her spayed when I can.
