Why I Wish I Was Still Working...

Okay so other then the obvious more money, my children are driving me crazy, my brain needs exercise and adult conversation.  There are some not so obvious consequences of my not working.  I guess it really comes back to more money but there are things I find myself doing to try and save money.  Like shopping at less then foodie desirable grocery stores, which by the way my friend is able to make look good just look here.  I find myself clipping coupons, going way to long in between haircuts, wearing clothes that well basically I shouldn't.  All of these I can somehow live with.  I tell myself it is not forever we will get back on track and tacking care of girls is more important then clothes.  I think I tell myself that one daily.

But today I think I did try a money saving option that may not have been worth it.  First let me tell you this is $50 I saved and we used to do it almost monthly so I was thinking shot I could save $400-$600 a year!  And so I did it myself.  Are you ready to hear.  I shaved Piper.  Now simply saying those words does not sound that bad but the fact is the dog is hairy!  Plus she was getting dread locks so it was time.  So if you are brave enough to continue on and see the small dog I removed from Piper today. 

Now there are a few things I can predict from sharing this picture.  First my brother in-law, Keith, will say "and that is reason number 304 not to have a dog."  Second someone will not read the posting and just look at the picture do a double take to try and figure out if that is a dog or not.  And thirdly the next time I think "maybe I should shave Piper" I can look back at this post and think long and hard about if I really want to do that again.

Also I have to say if Piper could speak she may choose for me to NOT shave her again.  Look at this poor puppy I think she hates me.  I know she doesn't trust me.  For the rest of the day she would not come if I called her. :(

But here is why I love that I am not currently working!  Regan and Ayla found their new favorite game to play together today!  Please excuse the lack of clothes on my daughter I would have blacked it out but I figure the blurriness of picture took care of that.

I've been there, minus the dog hair pile. Find an outlet, one day per week...perhaps beauty school. ;)
