Just a summer check-in (Pic of puppies!)

July 20th, 2016 at 11:57 pm

Wow I can't believe how fast this summer is going! Living in the Midwest we wait so long for those summer months and then they always fly by so fast!

Things are good and busy. Pretty much the usual. I have been doing well on my 3 softball teams and that is super fun, but will be happy to have a few nights back when the season ends for sure!

We have been spending tons of time at the lake on the weekends, getting lots of outside time, swimming, using the and fishing. I even caught my first fish, a really nice walleye! Here is my view from the paddleboard this weekend, relaxing with my book and a beverage! Let me tell you I was acrobatic not to dunk my book or phone!

I have a garden this year for the first time in about 10 years. It is our first summer in our new house and I found out quickly the garden is too small! But our corn, 2 kinds of squash, and peas are coming in nicely. Carrots and watermelon don't seem to be doing too well. Next year I will be better prepared (I have no tools to plant this year and actually used a kitchen spoon to plant! All my gardening tools are still back in the shed at my old house.

Still no OT at my work. Going on 7 months now. I really hope that when the weather changes the OT comes back. Not only is the money extremely helpful, but we are currently working on items from 7/1/16.....20 days behind!

The next few weekends will be filled with several softball tournaments out of town. Hopefully we can keep our spending to a minimum for food, gas and lodging.

I started tracking every penny spent a few days ago. I haven't done that for a few years. I think it is already helping with reigning in spending.

Dietbets are going ok....I need to lose about 3 more lbs to win the next set. I think I have about 10 days to do that, so I need to make sure I continue to make smart choices. I started running outside as well as on the treadmill. Not far yet, but have to start somewhere!

Our new puppy is adjusting very well and the 2 dogs are best buddies already. Here is a pic of their first trip together to the lake. And a little snoozing pic. Smile

I have no idea why this keeps loading upside down....I tried it like 4 times and it just wants to be difficult....

    The dogs are sooo cute! I want one. Just kidding! My cousin dresses her dogs up every holiday and takes pics of them and posts on FB and its just the cutest thing ever!

    Great job on your balancing act not dropping your book or phone! That board isn't very wide, I would have fallen off. Guess you have to engage your 'core'. I like cheladas have you had Palm Breeze? They are yummy!

    Glad you are enjoying your summer. Love the pics!! Thank you for sharing Smile

    SecretarySaving - OMG I love Palm Breezes! My fav one is the pineapple orange!

    OMG they are cute! How did you get your dog? Breeder, rescue, etc? We are in the beginning stages of starting to look for our next furry friend.

  6. Banker Gurl Says:

    Lena - My husband is very particular about dogs. He only wants English Springer Spaniels and only females that he can train for hunting. So we got her from a private seller. She cost $600! Yikes! I am definitely cool with whatever kind of dog and really support rescue options but since he is very specific that wasn't really an option. Good luck finding a new puppy baby!
