Holiday Weekend Time!

If you are spending your holiday weekend someplace that looks like this I have one thing to say to you........




TAKE ME WITH YOU!!!

Here at Chez Sluggy in landlocked Pennsyltucky, we'll be rocking the back deck with assorted relatives instead.  Hopefully the weather holds out because the house inside is a mess and as you know, my dining room table is out of commission...perhaps permanently. 8-(

I have the honor of throwing a barbeque for said relatives.  Except I really don't feel like cooking.  How come nobody else ever throws that 'que so I don't have to work it?  Maybe I'll go on strike and make the relatives bring the food.....um, on second thought I DO like to eat so nevermindthat!lolol
I just hate to go to the grocery store(since I haven't been again this week!)and spend a load of $$$ on food.  The 'sales' at the stores this week are pretty lame unless you plan on eating nothing but mustard and drinking soda.

Speaking of soda....we officially ran out this week.  All those 12 packs of soda I had accumulated over the past 6 months or so are G-O-N-E!  The teens have been reminded every month as the supply dwindled that it would NOT be replenished......now they may actually realize I mean what I said!lol
I wonder how many hours until they start freaking out......

Today I've got to take the 3 dogs to the vet for their annual.  This should be fun times, no?lol   Fun times and another big hole in my wallet...
And we get to talk to the vet about our bladder challenged beagle also.....oh goody!  I have a feeling this will not go well for the beagle.....

Then I've got more clearing out and cleaning up to do at the house before Sunday when the relative shows up for a weeklong stay.
Next week you can either find me in the garage(more cleaning/organizing), in the storage unit(more clearing and digging out)or in the bedroom closet(changing over the clothes to the warm weather stuff).    Plus it's also the last week 2 of the teens will be home before they leave for summer jobs so there is stuff to get them ready to send off.


I don't know what, if anything, the relative has planned for her week.....

And next week means the end of the month calculating to see how we did on the budget and the Savings Challenge so check back for that.

And when I went to pick up the Minivan from the $667 a/c repair the guy told me the mechanic saw my steering was leaking while he was under the car......do you hear that crappy KA-CHING sound?
I do!
Good times......

I'll be here this weekend and probably posting when I get time.  Beats interacting with the family sometimes, don't it?lolol

Enjoy your time off, relax and hug a soldier if you get the chance!
