You can DIY haha
For realz my DIY projects are to the moon and back!! So, sense we have gotten rid of Internet I am going to do my best to post from the library once a week on things like budgeting, but once a week I will be bringing you an awesome DIY from my phone!! This week?!
Revamp the shade!
First grab your gnarly lamp shade
Next grab some awesome fabric (mine are circles from a dress I made once
Cut your fabric I did half circle around the bottom of my shade
Grab your adhesive spray or packing tape if you have no idea where your spray is 😉
Light up the room and watch your fabric shine through!!!
Oh the choices we make!! Well we are officially moved but my house is a hot mess, as can be expected and one of my long frames the glass broke so I’m on the lookout for a new one at the thrift store bah humbug lol here are some quick pics of the progress of the dining room
We move tomorrow!!! My cabinets are barren and I get to drop off gifts to Gracie tonight!
I’m still asleep (coffee brewing) but I wanted to apologize for my few and far between posts this week we move tomorrow!! That pic is my ENTIrE cabinet contents!!
Tonight I get to help bless Gracie thanks to everyone’s generous donations!! Thank You All!
I love remaking furniture…like these chairs I traded my neighbor for!!!
They started a lovely grey ish and are now a lovely green tea!
First we washed them
Today I failed as a parent.
Wow. That’s humbling.
My boys knocked robins eggs out of the next in the front yard and killed the babies (because they opened the eggs) well I lost my shit. I yelled so loudly every neighbor on my block came outside as I told my kids they had killed, KILLED baby birds. Yup, that me shitty mom at 1821. I sucked. I know we all lose it but my kids killed birds and I lost it.
I thought Emmy was being a butt for not eating or wanting a bath and she wanted to wok. Now she is fast asleep. Beautiful and fast asleep.
And no I don’t mean *that* time of month!! I mean budgeting!!!
I find budgeting to be a source of relaxation, on the 30th of June I am not going to have question whether I paid off on my surgery bill, did I have enough for rent and the car payment. Instead I know on June 1st my bills are xyz and when I paid them.
I get my budget sheets at buttoned up
Here is my June budget
Emergency fund 240
Life insurance 165
Surgery bill 125
We may not be paying on the hospital bills because we are filing bankruptcy when we get our deposit back but for me personally that is a point of contention. I don’t want to file, Corey is the one with the extensive mortgage debt but I did just rack up 6k in hospital debt from my cervical cancer and whatever starts pouring in from Brett’s broken arm.
I know I need an income of 4k this month to be comfortable, I know rent is due the first of July and it’s 1200 so I know that our deposit will help us step ahead with that and then we will be balanced and in a solid place financially.
How does budgeting make you feel?
