I guess, although we are to warm up to the 38°F, they are predicting ice covered roads until noon today.
Aside from animal feed, which I may run out before the end of the week, I'm declaring this week a no-spend week. Toilet paper is stocked up so we are good in that department.
I'll try to remember to give you an update after week 1. I may stretch our no spend week, into two weeks. I've already been told that poster board is needed for school this week. I've warned the girls that makeup does not constitute as an necessity. It's more of a do-without-it-week-unless-absolutely necessary.
When I did barn chores yesterday, I had an apple that was going beyond it's freshness. I sliced it up and wrapped it and put it in my coat pocket. With buckets in both hands, I headed out. When I got to "Big Boy" he usually minds his own business and goes for the fresh water first. Not yesterday. I thought he would he was going to rub me to death with that awful smell, trying to get that apple from my pocket. Lesson learned.
I have a 15 year-old that won't talk back any day soon. I have a box, and in the inside bottom, are the words "I eat ipods and laptops." It ate a few electronics, and the funny part is, that the kids created this plan. Mostly, the plan was for when jobs were not completed 100%, but I took it to a new level.
Of course she was required to apologize to get them back, and after a lengthy time period, but required one more thing. She had to find one thing to do that did not involve using an electronic of any sort.
She spent some time drawing. She did complain, but she didn't use an electronic either.
I had a very busy day yesterday. Busy is a good thing right now.
It was already noon and I had not even finished half of my to-do list. Rue would not stand still for a good picture today.
Made liquid laundry detergent.
