A Week in Review – Kind of…

I didn’t keep track of anything this week.  Actually, I didn’t do much of anything at all this past week.  I met my savings goal for March and then kind of slacked off.

Honestly I have found the week in reviews to be kind of boring.  Shhh, don’t tell anyone I said that!  I’ve been thinking of ways to revamp and make them more interesting for you so hopefully from here on out they will be.

Where I slacked off though, Lacy revved up into full gear.  She found motivation one day and has been running with it ever since!  She has lots of items for sale on Facebook and Amazon and has been selling stuff everyday.

Yesterday was Easter and Lacy had to work (time and 1/2 is always worth it) so I went up to our parents ranch by myself.  It was a really nice day and I got a lot of great pictures to share for a couple of Theme Thursdays coming up and took pictures of some items Dad is letting us sell.  Mom, Dad, and Granny are all wonderful people and are giving us so much stuff to sell to help us make more money for our adventure.  Dad even sold a couple of bikes and just gave us the money for them.  We didn’t even have to do any work.  It’s awesome to have such supportive people in our lives, especially when we are doing something that most of the world thinks is crazy.  I really appreciate all the support we receive from them.

And now I will leave you with a few pictures from Easter at the ranch.  Enjoy and make sure to come back Thursday for a funny theme!  I captured an AWESOME picture for it!

This is my absolute favorite picture of the day!  Self portrait with a nosy horse.

This was a happy accident.  I was trying to take a picture of the flowers with the background blurry and ended up getting Betty in focus with blurry flowers.  I love it!

Horatio Gets a New Home

Getting rid of pets is hard.

Horatio is my turtle that I have had for half of my life.  I even have him tattooed on my foot.

On New Years Eve I got him all ready and took him to his new home.  My best friends daughter had been wanting a turtle for a couple of years now.  I asked her a few weeks back if she still wanted one and if she would like Horatio and she said yes.  She was very excited about it.  I procrastinated for weeks on getting him over to her.  I finally bit the bullet on New Years and took him over there.

It was a little easier than I expected.  Maybe because he is not a cuddly pet or maybe because he went to someone that I am really close to and will never lose contact with. Whatever the reason, I’m happy that he got a good home and it wasn’t as heartbreaking as I expected.

I have a cat and a dog that are still going to need homes and my sister has two cats, a bird, and a bearded dragon.  The dog will go to my parents house so that one will be easy.  I’m not sure about the cats, and honestly, giving up Sid (my cat) is going to be the hardest thing in this whole experience.  For my sister it will be Monet (her bird).  We have a few more months to work all of that out and prepare for it.  I’m sure we will have a post for each one when they find new homes.
