Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #3


Weekend Plans

I had yesterday off from my real job, so I spent day one of working on the rental property. Three hours cleaning the most disgusting refrigerator I’ve ever seen has left me a bit tired. If I’d never had a child, I don’t think I could have done it, but after you’ve been puked, peed and pooped on, most things just aren’t so bad. My husband gets a shift today with some demolition in the bathroom. It should be fun. I think I need to find something cute to call him on my blog, but I just can’t come up with anything. Mr. Eyes just sounds creepy, and Mr. E.D., well we just don’t want to go anywhere near that. If anyone can come up with a clever name, I’m all ears.

Eyes on the Dollar experienced some more love this week. It it truly amazing that people are reading and sharing things I write.  Thanks, guys for the mentions.

  1. We ended up doing absolutely nothing….a couple board games….watched football. That was awesome. I used to be upset if I DIDN’T have things going on during a weekend. Now I’m angry if I do.

  2. lmao @ ‘Mr ED’…no I don’t think he would appreciate that nickname. It’s too bad you didn’t take a photo of that nasty fridge. We do celebrate Labor Day up in Canada too, but I’m not sure of countries outside of North America. I hope your long weekend is going well.

    1. I thought about that after the fact. No one would truly believe the sheer nastiness of it. It will live on in my mind.
