Part-time Job

I have been looking for a part-time job.  I just want something that will give me enough income that I can go out and buy a couple gallons of paint, or a shelf, or decor at IKEA without touching out budget.  Ya know, fixer-upper moolah.  The whole process has been a headache and now has become comical.  Finding a job that I can do that won’t interfere with Greta-time or husband-time is near impossible.  I have been scammed twice (totally bummed) and some folks on Craigslist aren’t making it any easier.

RIP Sectional

The guy was picking up the couch late last night.  Chris was seriously pouting.  Maybe even some tears.  So I tried to cheer him up.  And then we both just started pouting. (My pout is lacking) And then it was time. Gone forever. And, suddenly, I was smiling again. s h o p p i n g (for this number) TONIGHT! …just call us sectional junkies.
