Happy Monday!

Monday, January 22, 2018

Happy Monday all! I'd love to say it was a great weekend, but I can't exactly say that. I had a decent time but have had some under lying stress that basically had me nearing a breakdown this weekend. The long and the short of it is that I'm a consultant and the company I work though pays me when they get paid by our clients. Well, it's been months since I've been paid and it's starting to take a toll of on our planning and home life. We're not in any real trouble, but it makes me stressed out. So while I did feel like breaking down, and I drank more than a few glasses of wine - I still did pretty well with my fitness and nutrition!

AND we went to book our vacation Saturday and it had gone up $400 in only a day! (like - WOW, right?) And the site I was trying to book it on kept showing an error that wasn't an error with my passport. It made just a little bit insane. I'm going to try to book it today at lunch as DH and I discussed that sometimes when you book flights on the weekend they are higher rates. Also, if the site keeps screwing up, I found a contact number to call capitol one to talk through it. I really need to use that site so I can use our miles to make it cheaper!

One positive we did have this weekend was we finally decided on our new window blinds. We picked out some really nice Roman Shades at Lowes. Unfortunately the installer who measured our windows didn't measure a few items so we couldn't order on Saturday! They should hopefully be coming out in the next few days so we can get everything ordered! Why are we getting new shades? Well....when your giant dog chews a corner out of two different shades within a week of each other, you can only ignore it for so long. (And apparently 2 months is my absolute limit as I may murder someone if we don't get new ones soon! emoticon )

I've also started learning Spanish for our trip! Starting Friday -thanks to @erin1128 I downloaded DuoLingo! And I'm loving it! Thanks for the recommendation! I've been using it for 10 minutes each day along with using DuoLingo Tiny Cards on my tablet! (By the way - Como la manzana. Bebo la tequila. - hahaha)

    We got the roman shades for our kid's room and we've been really happy with them! It was a pain though - first we signed up at Lowe's, then someone had to come out to measure the windows, then we had to go back to Lowe's to actually order them, then once they came in we had to make an appt for someone to come install them. Glad you like duolingo, we had fun with it. Hope you get that vacation booked cheap!
