This Post is Boring

This might sound a little weird, but things have never been so stable around here before now. Come to think of it, my life has never been so predictable and ordinary. I love it!

My day consists of waking up to Cub pestering me about something or other, making coffee, reading some blogs, and getting us out the door by 8:30 a.m. If I can, I try to plan/prep our evening meal by using a crock pot or taking meat out of the freezer or whatever. During the day, I let Facebook suck me into some mindless game playing and such until I get bored (some days this happens faster than others). Then there's laundry to do, groceries to buy, work to be done, a bit of cleaning here and there, some knitting or stitching gets done, and it's time to pick up kids again. Evenings are spent making and cleaning up after dinner, then parking my rear end on the couch for at least an hour. Kids are put to bed, and Hubby and I spend some time doing mindless tasks like computering or television watching.

I know when the paycheques are coming in, and how much to expect. The bills are split between the two (occasionally three) pay periods and are paid accordingly. The rent gets paid first, then savings is shuffled away to various areas, bills are paid and if there is any left, that's what I use for spending (groceries, gas, etc.). When there is extra income, like a mileage reimbursement cheque, it gets put toward accelerating debt repayment or stocking up on sale items. Boring, isn't it??

I'm not blogging as much as I would like to these days, but I have so many other things that need my attention that this habit has fallen by the wayside a bit. Never fear though, I am not quitting blogging, just slowing down the amount that I am here. I'm reading as many blogs as I can, just to try to keep up with what's going on in the lives of everyone else.

I hope everyone is doing well. Next up, some pictures I'd like to share.


  1. I wondered how you were doing! :) Glad to hear all is well!

  2. As I always say - a boring day is a GOOD day! Glad to hear things are ticking along as they should!
