leaving your day job is all fun and games.. no wait

i mean

leaving your day job is funny.. no wait

i mean

leaving your day job is full of money saving games


finding that 2nd mascara hiding in the back of the drawer. you know. when you bought 2 in that SUPER PACK deal at CV(buy 100 things I dont need) S

and then you forget you bought that SUPER PACK. um. maybe a couple of times... so really. you have more mascara than you even know!

dont even start with me about the amount of vitamin D I own. sh. it is always buy one jar of 837389 get one pack free

And like the other day when:

I came out of the dentist narrowly escaping cavities.

and, I was thrilled with my new money saving tactic of, get this, -  asking if something really must be bought-... like dental xrays.

and I just saved money at the grocery store buying the brand of almond milk with a coupon pasted to the front.  I should probably write a book explaining that one.

.I was feeling really happy with my good fortune.

 and like I said. I was leaving the dentist.

when I saw I had been attacked by clementines.

then I remembered. I unloaded my groceries the hour before and placed the clementines on the edge of my truck bed for a second trip out. and....


so I never knew they flew off the edge later. and landed in the bed. scattered about like crazies.

but saved.


so I ate one.

it's the victories I cherish.

when I passed the man on his unicycle

I was jogging.

and freezing to the point of crouching as close to the fetal position as possible. as in- I will most likely be dumb sore from contracting every muscle against the cold.

I'm ok.

obviously alive.


when i passed the man on his unicycle 

i remembered 

how dearly i value- unusual.

and I forgot the cold for a second. as my arms were getting warmer and I skipped for a beat, hopping up on the sidewalk smiling.

and looking at the one blue house that appears to be facing sideways in a row of houses.

the rebel.


and it is cold in my house too. but not after you dance in the kitchen.

best done in my dad's old wool socks.


and unicycle sightings + kitchen dancing = inspired. 

So, here is a new creature, 




I had a super productive day last week where I framed anything that wasn't moving.

thank goodness for unicycles. 


i love music. almost more than everything.
