A Long Long Time and Two States Ago...

September 12th, 2012 at 06:37 pm

The last time I updated was over 3 years ago! I decided it was time to revamp the place a bit. We're moving from The Money Pit - when we were moving from state to state with reckless abandon - to Frugal on the Weekends - where we now own a house, make more money, and can focus on our frugal actions in order to pay down credit cards, save for a new car, and get rid of student loans.

Both Brandus and I work full time plus as teachers - I teach preschoolers with special needs, and Brandus teaches middle schoolers with attitudes. We both commute 45 minutes each way. In opposite directions, of course.

At home, we have a Kindergartner of our own. Five year old Voldemort is hilarious, weird, and way too smart for his own good.

By the time we make it home, we cook dinner, do homework with the kid, and collapse in exhaustion. There is very little frugal activities during the week.

But on the weekend? We have time. We have energy. We have...dirty laundry, a messy kitchen, and a wild child to entertain.

Here's our experiences trying to get the new house fixed up, fight the HOA for a clothesline, and entertain the child, Voldemort!

    I remember you...thanks for the update!! I used to work early childhood special education and then moved up to the middle school (still special education, many with attitude) - so can relate to that part of your busy Smile Welcome back!

    I've never heard of the weekend frugal concept. What a great idea!

    I remember you too. I used to like reading about your adventure in Alaska.

    Tell us soon about your clothesline problems and possible ways to get around it.
