goodbye old friends

Happy Fat Tuesday!
Tomorrow begins my favorite season...I know, I know, it's weird to like Lent but I do. : )
Welcome to fish fry season!! yipee!

D and I have decided to give up two of our very favorite things...

Diet Coke and Beer.
We may get divorced in the process but we think we can handle it for 40 days. It just means we'll be drinking more iced tea and wine! Wish us luck.

It's the weeekend!!

What a snowy, cold, long week. This how we're celebrating the end of the week:

Friday: We passed out on the couch and watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.

On a side note, I am absolutely disgusted by the repeated video coverage of the Georgian athlete dying. This is not a video game or a stunt double, this is real life. That man died. And we as a country should not be watching it over and over. Show some respect for life.

Saturday: p-p-packing all day. This evening we are headed to La Charada, my most favorite restaurant, to meet A, T, and S for our traditional Mexican Valentine's Dinner. : )

Sunday: Church, more packing, and something Valentiney. We don't normally celebrate but we may exchange cards or go to dinner. We'll see.

like clockwork...

Something strange has been happening at the D/H household...

Lately, well every Thursday, when I come home from class and I fall in the toilet.

What! Why?

Because my darling husband who never, ever, leaves the seat up has gotten in the habit of leaving the seat up only when I'm at class on Thursday.


We will be curbing this habit asap.

una problema

December was a budgeting free-for-all at the H/D household. We traveled, we ate, we drank, we gifted, and purchased.

So when January rolled around we decided to go on a spending freeze. *insert scratching record here*

We did not go out to eat and only bought the bare essentials, meaning there were no TJ Maxx trips for me : (

Well it's February and we're buying a house.... so the responsible thing to do it to hold off on the TJ Maxx and Pandora but I waaannttt it! bad.

There is nothing that I need. I have all of my needs met.

I just want to shop and buy. It's soothing for me. I like the act of browsing....but browsing leads to buying because it's "such a good deal!" and buying leads to immaturely wasting money on things you don't need.
Luckily D thinks my TJ Maxx angst is cute.
