More Small Wins

August 6th, 2018 at 08:22 am

DH left this morning. I'm a big emotional eater, so skipping fast food breakfast was a big deal. I had made a batch of blueberry overnight oats, but those didn't look appetizing. Instead, I just grabbed a yogurt, nutrigrain bar, and bigger lunch.

I was debating adding money to the animal fund to get our dog groomed, but I decided to just try it myself. She's a GSD/Husky mix, so her fur is getting out of control. I'd bought a cheap grooming kit when I was considering cutting DH's hair. However, he's since decided to just embrace the bald look, so I'm going to use that and give it a shot. That'll save $100 if I can get her to a reasonable state.

I've also planned simpler meals since DH is gone. They're so easy that my brother can pitch in and cook more.

Like the last time that he was gone, I've made a list of small house projects that just never seem to get done to tackle while he's away. Today is furminating all the animals, cutting the dog's nails, and using the hair remover block on the couches/chairs. Other things this week include clearing out all of empty the Amazon boxes from our downstairs closets, organizing some of the house decorations, decluttering the kitchen, and deep cleaning the floors.

    How did dog trim go? If you don't mind doing dog's nails, this can be a lucrative side hustle. It's such a pain to take dog to groomers for nails. I'd love to have an at home, easier to access place to take dogs.

    I am a stress eater and it does take some will power to pass up the fast food!

    Hope the dog trimming went well.

    Fast food breakfasts are addictive because unfortunately they taste good. Glad you didn't succumb.

    Snafu, I just cleaned up her legs yesterday since I'm trying to take it slow and get her used to letting me groom her, but she did really well. I don't think I'd ever be comfortable grooming other people's dogs. Once I cut the quick on my dog that passed, and I felt so guilty for weeks.

    Wink and Rob, it was a big deal to pass it up. I almost justified it today since it was payday, but I skipped it again. It's difficult because the office is so cold, and fast food breakfast is warm and delicious! But I had my overnight oats today. Healthier and cheaper!
