This is the time on Sprockets where we look at our finances and ask ourselves “what can I do to help myself get ahead…”

Seriously when the banks start failing, you know that happy days aren’t here again.. and that they’ll be gone for a while… Fuck. 118 years after you started out being a local Seattle bank, you fucked up big time and the government said no more? Jesus, over inflated ego much?

I guess now that I’m 30, I should wake up and pay attention to finances and politics… eew.

Diamonds are forever.

leave a comment »

I went to visit my grandma today.

She gave me a pair of diamond earrings. They are earrings she had made about 15 years ago from a diamond ring that had belonged to her aunt. There were 6 stones. She and my aunt had earrings, my mom took her stones and put them into a newer wedding ring. She had her ears pierced at the age of 60 so she could wear diamonds! But, she never really wore them.

Today, I got them.

Thank you grandma, I love you.

You know you’ve lost a bit of weight when your bathrobe is getting to be to big.
Squeee!

Fall seems to have finally shown up! The nights and mornings are getting cool and crisp.

I do what?

I’m trying to figure out if I’m over pronating… who knew this could be so had to figure out on one’s own.
Next week, I’m going to Super Jock N Jill in Greenlake, I hope they can figure me out. I’m so done with blisters and my heels not fitting well in my shoes.

Oh wireless router, I’m glad you were replaced!

My dog is afraid of strange men with leaf blowers, but not afraid of my dad with a leaf blower.

When washing laundry with a random towel that was used for cleaning guns, it will take a good 5 or so washings/soakings with water softeners, liquid Dawn, your regular laundry detergent and 2 scented dryer sheets to get the awesome chemical scent out. Thanks sweetie, I love you.

Stroh tastes like burning and butterscotch and christmas… all in one awful fiery gulp. Yuck.

Moleskin doesn’t work.

I’ve committed myself to 2 5ks! The Issaquah Salmon 5k and Jingle Bell Run. Hmm.
