Weekend Planning 4.23.10

**I haven't posted a pic of Duramax in a while, thought he might bring a smile to someone other than me, isn't he adorable? :)**

This weekend will be a little busier than usual. I am seriously welcoming this change :) I haven't been home much this week. Chevy Man has had an outburst of gout in his foot, so normal activities have taken about 10 times longer.. So I've had to cut almost all housework out of our schedule. Thankfully, he is feeling much better, so back to our regularly scheduled programing :D.. So now you understand why there are chores on days that they don't belong :)

-Daily Chores
-swiffer kitchen and bathroom
-clean entire bathroom
-clean up bedroom and vacuum
-Journalism Benefit @ 7

-Daily Chores
-clean out deep freeze
-storage run-bring a/c home :)!!
-Clean out garbage cans
-Spaghetti for dinner

-Play cards with Family
-Chili's on the menu.. but that just doesn't sound good.. who knows it might in 2 days lol
-clean out car

Weekend Planning was started by Molly @ My Happy House. Check her blog out. She's awesome! I'm also linking up to:

The Girl Creative


  1. I love the fact that his name is Duramax. We are Diesel enthusiasts in my family. Though my Hubby is a Cummins man and I'm a Powerstoke girl. But regaurdless, thats awesome! :)

  2. Hi Brandi, Sorry to hear that your Chevy Man has gout. My younger brother suffers with it too, and it's just awful. He is able to help his some with a modified diet during attacks. Has your man ever tried that? I know my brother drinks lots of cherry juice - and avoids several acidic or vinegary foods. I know it sounds weird, but it works for him.

  3. Following from The Creative Girl's New Friend Friday.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
