Hey, everybody! Was pretty busy on Sunday, so the Weekend Update couldn’t get posted in time… However, I had a really awesome weekend though! Come and see what I did! 😀
On Saturday, I had one enchilada and a half as a cheat meal and maaaaaan, was it ever tasty! Love those things! 😀 LOCMom also wanted to get out of the house, so we went and fed the birds! Not too many birds there that day, but we did see some ducks having sex with female ducks. It’s spring ya’ll and it’s mating season. Of course, male ducks are kind of rapey when it comes to mating with female ducks, but there is really nothing you can do about it when you see these wild animals doing wild animal stuff. When reading about how male ducks have sex with the female ducks and how they do it, I’m not surprised these birds are hunted for their meat. They’re kind of stupid, haha. 😛 Feel sorry for the female ducks though. They’re just victims in all of this. 😥 But yeah, go and read about the sex lives of ducks sometime! It’s pretty nuts.
Anyway, two pics of the birds we fed on Saturday…
After feeding the birds, LOCMomand I went to get a cupcake at our local cake shop, Sublime! They were pretty tasty, but pricey. 3 bucks a cupcake, but they are soooooooo worth it! Then I went off to Dollar Tree to buy my budgeted Operation Christmas Child items! Found a bunch of cute stuff in there for the kids! 🙂 We then got home and I found myself on YouTube watching Looney Tunes clips! Man, did those clips bring back some great memories when I watched them as a child! They are just as funny now as when I watched them as a kid! 😀 Now even funnier, I think!
After binge watching YouTube, I looked in the kitchen pantry and thought, “Man, I need to reorganize the bottom half of this pantry!” And so I did! I streamlined that sucker! Organized everything and took some stuff out of it and it looks very cleanly and organized now! I’m so proud of myself and LOCMom likes it as well. 🙂
Money Spent on Saturday
- Operation Chrsitmas Child Items (for 5 items) – $5.36
- Sublime Cupcakes (2 cupcakes) – $6.00
Total Amount Spent: $11.36
On Sunday, I helped LOMom declutter the garage! With LOCBroA’s permission, we got rid of all of his childhood legos! Or, LOCMom did. I’m sure was proud of her for making a huge dent in our garage! After going through the garage and dropping stuff off at a Goodwill donation center, we went to the main Goodwill store and I looked around in it! Found some coasters that were new in their package that said they were absorbent, but it turns out that that is not the case when I used them with a nice cold glass cup. They freakin’ stick to the cup! Man, I spent $4.19 on those which is a lot of money for someone on Social Security Disability and you buy something that was new in its box and it doesn’t even work. I mean, really? : |Well, back in our donation box they are going! However, I also found a granite coaster from a fancy schmancy luxurious cruise liner that worked very nicely for around 2 bucks and I feel like a queen using it! Something from a luxurious cruise liner that functions well and cost me only two dollars still new in its package? Sign me up to buy things like that! 😀
I also got some new staples that were brand new in their box. We didn’t really need them, but the staples were in a nifty box and for $1.19, why not? I also bought a binder for replacing a binder I had bought at Goodwill since my old binder was getting too small for the amount of papers it had in it and the new binder works great! Plus it was 50% off, so it was like 60 cents! Score! 😀
And after my thrifting adventures, later that evening, we went to a show and saw the Dog Whisperer, Caesar Millan! He was quite the showman! Like on his television show, all of the dogs magically obeyed him. There were dogs backstage from a local rescue I used to volunteer at, but they were all so well behaved that they didn’t need to go on stage, the rescue claimed. Thought that was awesome. 🙂 In the middle of the show, there were three South Park clips of Caesar Millan trying to “train” the South Park character Cartman Dog Whisperer style. xD It was from the South Park episode, ‘Tsst’ if anyone would like to watch all of the clips. 🙂 I don’t watch the show, but I know what it’s basically about, haha. But, it was so funny and the audience was howling with laughter! LOCMom and I both enjoyed the show very much! It was about 10:00PM when we got home, so it was pretty late. 🙂
Money Spent On Sunday
- Blue Binder – $0.60
- Staples – $1.19
- Crappy Coasters (4 in total) – $4.19
- Granite Coaster – $2.19
Total Amount Spent: $7.08
And that about wraps up that weekend! Had a lot of fun! The weather is going to be nicer now and I can’t wait to start enjoying some exercising outdoors again if it’s not too cold from the wind. 🙂
How was your weekend?
