We are going to be gone all weekend. It’s a whirlwind trip to rural Oregon, chalk full of family and birthdays and eating, oh my!
I will also be capitolizing on my rural location to do a little shopping. Hitting up the small town Farmer’s Market, where prices are cheaper. Shopping the un-trendy Farm Supply Stores (as opposed to the trendy ones here) in hopes of finding a better price on a pickling crock and perhaps electric fencing for Chicken paddocks.
Speaking of Chickens, I’m concerned about Pet Sitters, and certain dogs in this household, prone to take advantage of the any disturbance in the force for bad behavior. I guess we will find out just how secure the Lady’s set up is, wont we?
Cherie Chicken is unconcerned.
Just finished the 2nd 8.5 mile run of the week. 1/2 marathon here I come! Five hour car ride? Not looking forward to ya.
I am looking forward to good gas mileage, as this is the first long, long trip we get to take in the (sorta) new car. 40+ mpg, Woot! Woot!
The nice weather has inspired me to solidify our summer time calendar – (more) birthdays, weddings, vacations, and concerts. Again with the oh my! This is not the last we will be seeing of the Pet Sitter.
With all that in mind, I’ve begun the contributions to corresponding targeted savings accounts, for all of the above – birthday, weddings, vacations, and concerts. Plus, that costly (but worth every penny) Pet Sitter. If life is expensive, I better at least attempt to be prepared.
Stay tuned for an interesting Sunday Spending. Grocery getting goes abroad, or so I hope. Since we aren’t going to have time for shopping here before Monday, I’m packing the cooler. Its rural groceries or bust! Wish me luck!
