busy busy

Thanks so much for your comment, Russell!! Embarrassment

I haven't been around as much as I used to be...I actually have a JOB to do during the day, real WORK, go figure! It's nice because the day goes by faster, but my days are longer than they used to be, what with riding the bus and all. I stare at the computer all day (which I did at my last job too, but not as intently), so by the time I get home, the last thing I want to do is open up my laptop.

On top of that, I've not been visiting this site because I've been spending way more than I've been saving. Guilty conscience, anyone?

Sadly, my other adult fish died yesterday. That is the second fish to die in the span of a few days, so I'm starting to get worried. All the water tests say things are fine, though...I'm not sure what is going on.

We've been trying to find our cat a furry little friend, but we don't want to settle on just any cat. Ours is still an only child because of that. Hopefully we'll get a chance to look at the humane society again this weekend (though I'd prefer a FREE cat, craigslist.org people either never return my phone calls or give all the cats away before I can get there).

Still wallowing in apples...I made a five pound apple crisp over the weekend, but that barely made a dent in it. I hope to make applesauce this weekend, which I hear is not that difficult.

I'd better start thinking more seriously about Christmas gifts. I have some things tucked away, but before we know it, it will be upon us! Speaking of which, I finally bought my ticket home.

I am still pretty frugal about buying things...I'll mostly buy things that are on sale or generic...but the problem lies in my stepping foot in the store in the first place! I need to spend more time at home and less time shopping for frivolous things for myself!

    Applesauce is easy peasy. We are swimming in apples too, from apple picking and also from our farm share. I've been sending my husband to work with apples to eat or give away.

    Hi Kashi,
    I haven't been on here in awhile either. Congrats on the new job! Sounds like it's a good change of pace from your old job.

    Sounds like you're enjoying your new job and that's awesome. What do you do there ? I remember you were looking for a job with a publishing company ?

    don't forget apples are goof to freeze too. cut them up for cobbler or pie toss in the sugar and spices or throw in no flavored and they freeze just fine! We do it each year.
