Fabulous Friday

I guess its that time of the year again, we have to start talking about Christmas gifts. Well, we could talk about Thanksgiving but that would just be me posting pictures of food that I could never make. Or we could talk about Halloween but it seems a bit tacky. Well, tacky to all the Christmas lovers out there. Not tacky to a true Halloween-er like me.
Jump over to E-How and see all the wonderful ways to wrap gifts. Can we just give out empty boxes this year? Ok, I have to stop. I can't start being a Scrooge already. I'll think happy Christmas thoughts. Well shit, the Halloween thoughts seem to be overpowering the Christmas thoughts.
Maybe I should make Christmas cards like this? That would get me in the spirit!!
Christmas crapper,

A Pissy Vulcan

This is the lovely lamp that I bought from the Goodwill for $4.99. Yay!!! I thought that it would look great in DJ's room but the color was off. Well, I thought the color was off. Den said it matched and I'm color blind so how would I know. Makes me see red when he points that out.

 But I have a wonderful cheat when I redo a room. I snag a color chart and match the colors of the curtains, pillow, carpet, paintings and anything else from that. Even us colorblind fools can see this is a great idea!
I wanted to do this little painting project but someone had to get involved. I pointed that out and he said he just wanted to help. Honestly, I think I scare him.
I wanted to leave it this color but Den had other ideas.
He ran some white paint over the top of it. Meh. He said it looks like Earth from space. A very cloudy Earth.
Speaking of space, did you know that we now have Star Trek stamps????? We live in wonderful times!!!! I may give these out as Christmas gifts. And speaking of Christmas...................
I got a $25 Amazon gift code from MyPoints. I'm counting it as free money cuz I normally buy a bunch of Amazon codes. My tally, my way!!! Damn, I feel so powerful.
And here you have it...........
$5          liquor rebate
$25        Amazon Gift code from MyPoints.
$80        Pinecone Research
$285.53 from Bank of America credit card points
-----
$395.53 for the year. Just a few million more dollars and I will be able to give myself the gift that I want too. To be a millionaire!!!
How's your Christmas fund? Are your asking Santa to be a millionaire? Would you sit on a pissy Santa for that much money? Do you scare your husband?
Pissy and painted,

Wicked Wednesday

I'm sure the U.S. wouldn't handle this situation the same. Kill it and then ask questions.
Here is our new money making scheme!!!! I'm not sure if I would look a bit too old whilst collecting their money. Maybe a little too old but if the little fuckers pointed it out, I would charge them twice as much to get in.
Let's scout out a party!!!!
I have asthma. Maybe Den didn't take my breath away when we first met. Maybe I just needed an inhaler.
Do you leave people liquor when you disagree with them? Do little fuckers call you old? Can you breath?
No air,

Losing Security

We had a fun weekend with my inlaws! We ventured up to Lake of the Torches Casino and Hotel in Lac Du Flambeau, WI. It is on an Indian reservation and it is beautiful. Unfortunately, the leaves have all fallen. I want to go back when the leaves are changing.
It was so much fun and it helps that they comped Den and his parents free rooms, food and free play. I did have to laugh at my inlaws. They were running low on cash Saturday night and were going to have to write a check for more cash. Who does that?!?!?! We said no and took money out of the ATM for them. Den said they were out of control and we may have to supervise them. He said he was telling everyone that they have gambling issues and are so bad that they bum money off their kids. LOL. 
We left losers but they did comp me free food before we left. It was a little intimidating when a woman walked up to me and asked if I was Sonya Mott. Ummmmmm, yes? Look, we have already established that I am a bad girl and have had a few run-ins with the law. Never give up your name. NEVER!!! But for free food, I'll sing.
Oh and if you ever find your way up there, check out the SMOKING HOT security guards. Seriously, they hire the hottest American Indian men EVER. EVER!! And yes, I looked. Hell, I was tempted to follow one of them or commit a crime just so he could handcuff me. DAMN!
On the way home, we stopped at Mullins Cheese factory. It kills me not to be able to eat dairy. Everything looked so yummy! I got some beef jerky. It helped but I still was salivating for ALL of it.
Oh and look, there is Big Dennis in my shot. Hmmmm, Den gets his stepping into a picture from his dad.
And that's all I got for ya. Well, unless you count the email I got from the casino for me to call them cuz they have a ton of comps waiting for me. Do you think they would comp me a security guard?
Did you do anything fun this weekend? Did you travel? Did you lose? Did you salivate over a security guard? Did you get cheese shits?
So bad,
Sonya Ann

BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!!!!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!! I'm so happy. Aren't you happy?
If I had an old house, I would go crazy decorating it for Halloween. Well, first I would go off the deep end because of the renovations and then I would decorate.
I love everything creepy. Well, I love creepy decorations but not movies. People that like scary movies are not right in the head. But people that live in a house decorated for Halloween are perfectly sane.
I love this picture. I'm thinking it would make a great tattoo. I could keep Halloween with me every day. It's not weird at all so don't say it.
See how awesome that picture is!!!!
Remember Den's $7 gyrating skeleton and the head kept popping off? I walked in the kitchen(cuz where else would you keep a skeleton?) and his head was really dangling. So I slapped it back on and didn't really look at it.
Does he look fabulous to you? I laughed really hard.
Are you dressing up? Are you happy for today? Am I a bit too happy? But more importantly, are you fabulous?
Halloweening,
Sonya Ann

Makin' It And Savin' It Sunday

Amazon is hiring 120,000 seasonal workers in 27 states and Penny Hoarder has an article all about it. We have a new fulfillment center right over the border in WI. It's about 20 minutes away. Wanna know a secret? These jobs aren't all they are cracked up to be. Don't get me wrong, if you need a seasonal/part-time gig, try there just don't expect much. They put these poor suckers on 3 hour days, up to 7 days a week. Then they have them on-call for the entire season. They go in for a few hours, drive home(the plant isn't in a heavy populated area.) and then get called back in if there is more work. The closer to Christmas they get, the more hours they can have but can't get full-time hours.
The people making the real money are the surrounding houses that rent out rooms to them. It's too expensive to keep driving back and forth so they find a cheap room to rent. Doesn't that seem like it would negate working there?
Have you ever worked a seasonal job? Have you ever worked a crap job? I worked at Kirby in high school, it was misery. Have you ever rented out a room? Have you ever found a way to profit off of your location?
No location,

Naughty Hooker

I'm being a bad girl today!!!! Wait, isn't that everyday? The good news is I haven't caused a riot or set a can of Aqua net on fire and used it as a flame thrower. Yeah, I did that on the 8th grade trip to Springfield in a super posh hotel room. Looking back on my life, I was pretty bad and I think part of the problem was I NEVER got caught. I should probably stop telling my stories.
Do you play hooky? Have you ever set fire to things with Aqua Net? Did you ever run from the police on a 3-wheeler? Did you ever run from the police in your Dad's car and have to hide his car for a while?
Naughty,

Fabulous Friday

LOOK AT THIS!!! NO, LOOK AT IT!!! This is the best thing ever. At first, I was thinking I need these for the yard for Halloween, please don't bring up the fact that we really don't have any big trees. Now after spending a huge amount of time checking out Street Art Utopia, I now know that I have a ton more projects for the yard. We might have to move to a more wooded area and have a house with a ton of stairs. I need people climbing up every stair. EVER DAMNED STAIR! The house also has to have a stop sign in it and perhaps a brick wall. I'm not sure if we need a McDonalds sign or not in our new house.
Maybe I am the problem in our house. Nope, never.
Do you have faces on your trees? Do you need faces on your trees? Who's with me on adorable little black cutout people for the stairs? Wait what about elves for Christmas?
Many projects,
Sonya Ann

Receding Cats

My window-lickers are so adorable. Cute but not too bright. I would feel sorry for them if I could stop laughing.
Maybe the cats are closet drinkers. I could never be a closet drinker, its too small in there.
I might drink in the closet with him though. I figured I better throw a picture of Jason in here just so you didn't feel like I was wasting your time.
I mean, damn he is hot. I think it's the hair. I'm trying to convince Den to grow his hair out but he said with his receding hair line it probably wouldn't work. Perhaps, I could get Den a wig.
Two drunk pussies and a shirtless hottie, my work here is done. I think I'm getting worse.
Do you closet drink? Would you drink with Jason or my cats? Who is your friend that gets you shit-faced at a moments notice?
Shit-faced getter,

Wicked Wednesday

Anna said to me one time that I take something that is sweet and innocent and twist it into something evil. My response was that I never saw anything sweet and innocent in the first place. Ahhhhh, perception its a terrible thing.
So I wasn't exactly a great kid. Did I ever tell you about the time that I started a small riot just to experience it? An opportunity presented itself and I took it.
When I was in junior high, we had fund raising sleepovers. Boys in one room, girls in another. Anywho, everyone was running through the school at about 3 am and looking out the windows. Mind you, there were about 50 kids plus teachers. And I was in the back and I lowered my voice and said, "I see a man with a knife out there." Well, chaos ensued. First, I ran with the girls screaming and crying, you know just to see what that was like. Then I watched the boys run around with bats and threatening everything that moved. Then I hung with the teachers who were contemplating calling the police. It was quite interesting to observe it from every angle. Needless to say, I never got caught cuz I was a good kid. After about an hour, I got bored and went to bed leaving the teachers with a lot of sobbing girls and bat crazed boys. I suppose I should say sorry about that one. I'm not right and I never have been. It's kind of funny Anna ended up a teacher with a mom like me.
Can you imagine what I could do with that kind of power? Start a riot or stop one?
The big question is were you a good kid or a bad kid? Please keep in mind that I was a bad kid that was one the honor roll and in sports. It is really easy to be bad when everyone thinks your a goodie-goodie.
So bad,
Sonya Ann

WOW, Not Really

I am boring and I love it. You, on the other hand, might find this post a bit flat. Sorry, love.
Friday, Den and I ran errands. We went to Home Depot, the grocery store, ate at a yummy Mexican restaurant. And then the exciting part, the recycling plant. We know how to live. We scored $9.25 from all the cans that we had. And it's all going into Den's fishing fund. Living the good life!!
Saturday, our local VFW was having an indoor garage sale. Three tables! Wow, not really. Den found a small tool set and I found a Christmas potholder and towel set. $2.25 later, we left.
We did manage to find quite a few garage sales which is shocking for the end of October. All that lovely stuff was $18.50. The pile, on the left side, was from a bag sale for a $1. We got some copper piping to be recycled, 4 gardening tools, a spoon to be recycled, a planter, a can of black spray paint and a can of seal it stuff. The adorable barrel was $5 and Den said we have to write RUM on it and put it by the pool. We also found a garage sale where they were selling off restaurant stuff. We got 2 large spoons and 3 bowls.  I scored that cute light-up snowman and the cute basket for $1.75. The tupperware, 3 VHS tapes, a bird-house and wire basket were from an estate sale. It was the last day and they were trying to get rid of everything fast. The best news was we didn't find any furniture.
Saturday night, we had Indian food. Yum!! The Aldi mixes are FAB!!!
Sunday, Den worked a bit more on the paintings for DJ's room and made soup. I cleaned and did laundry. Go us.
Please tell me you had a much more interesting weekend!!! Did you paint? Did you garage sale? Were you bored?
Chill,
Sonya Ann

2 Gyrating Holidays

This is Den's new friend. We got him at a garage sale last year. He spent an entire $7 on him. Well, after storing him in the garage and perhaps getting smashed a bit by fishing gear, he's not the man that he used to be. He moves around a bit when you plug him in. But his head isn't attached so well. When he starts to move, his head falls forward and he stares at his pee-pee while gyrating. He fits right in.
I figured I would give you a tour of the Halloween decorations. Just cuz.
We have the alter set up in the front room. We will not be sacrificing the cat. Well, that is the good cat, Hairy. Sue, I might be willing to make an offering to the gods out of him.
Gregory Grimm is in the corner again(black material, a mask, arms and a sickle over the curio cabinet). He likes it there. You do know that we are odd. We decorate and have no kids at home.
This is another new addition to the decorations. She was part of a cheesy large mat/picture from the dollar tree. I cut her down to fit in a Goodwill frame for $1.99.
And when you step to the side, she is creepy. She isn't staring at her pee-pee so I'm happy about that.
And on to Christmas!!!!!!!!! I got $284.53 from Bank of America!!!! Go me!!!
So here it is....................................
$5          liquor rebate
$80        Pinecone Research
$285.53 from Bank of America
-----
$370.53 for the year. Not my best year for finding free money. I think I am going to have to win some!!!
What is going on at your house? Do you decorate for Halloween? Do you stare at your pee-pee? How is your holiday fund coming along?

Makin' It And Savin' It Sunday

Looking for a job? Are you a talker? Y'all know, I am. I honestly wake myself up at night, talking. No not snoring, I talk myself awake. Hmmmmmm, maybe that is why I am grouchy in the mornings, I haven't gotten a good night sleep in a very long time.
Anywho, Penny Hoarder has a post about jobs for the talkers. Are you a big talker or are you the quiet type? Den is the quiet type but he says that he isn't quiet, he just can't get a word in because I don't shut up. I refuse to listen to him. He's rude and honestly, doesn't have anything of value to say. ;p
Are you the one that never shuts up? Do you speed talk? Or are you the quiet one?
Jaw-jacker,

Our 2016 Mission and Our Favorite person!!!!!!

Hmmmmm, I didn't move a mountain this week. That probably would have been a huge project and we are trying to scale back. ;p
I've paid down the credit card/car payment/furniture mess that I made. I'm just calling this little relapse a refresher course. We didn't have any debt other than the house payment for 12+ years. The thing that I am seeing is we are knocking quite a bit off every week. It's odd that I can't seem to save that much every week but now that I have to repay it, money appears. The belt wasn't as tight as I thought it was.
I have been cheaply gathering pillows for DJ's bed. Doesn't match, does it?
I would just like to have his room done by the time that he gets here for Thanksgiving and we have a wave of people over. Hey, did I tell you that I have invited even more people over this year? I figure a few people can eat in the tub. I'm very welcoming and an idiot, I'm a welcoming idiot.

Donna and I were checking big pillows out and they were around $35 each at JcP and Kohls and didn't match the comforter that I have. I went to Goodwill and they had brand new pillows from Target on sale for $4.99. The pillows were originally priced at $34.99.
We went to Jo-Ann fabrics and hit the clearance bin. I felt so domestic.
Now let's see what Donna comes up with. Hey, I can't sew but I can take her out to lunch and pay for her toes to be did.
Is having someone else do your project really accomplishing something? Please, say yes.
And our favorite person for the day is..........CT on a budget!!!! Run over there and check out the financial freedom plan!!!!!
Do you have a financial freedom plan? Does your plan include making someone else sew pillows for you?
Not domestic,
Welcoming Idiot

Fabulous Friday

I now have a new plan. Let's call it a life plan perhaps a frugal happy plan. I should start making gifts for Christmas but make them Halloween decorations. I would make gifts year round! I mean who wouldn't like a skull/bug picture Christmas morning? Nothing would make me happier. Honestly, this might be the way for me to concur my Grinchness.
This lovely and uplifting craft didn't have a link. So sad. But I'm thinkin' a garage sale picture, dollar tree bugs and a skull with a dash of old spray paint in the garage!
This is the most important question of the day, Christmas or Halloween? Do you have a favorite? We already know what holiday I love!!!!
Are you crafting this weekend? What are your plans?

Cheap Wall

We live for projects, that must be it.
I came up with a plan for Den because I am cheap he is talented. I wanted matching pictures for DJ's room and I knew he could paint something. He has all the talent in the house. I come up with project for him. Yin and Yang, I tell ya.
When this was still in the "thinking about it" part of this project, he asked if I thought he should paint with watercolor or oil. I said, you get wall paint.  I know my cheap is showing but it matches!!!!
This was the painting that I based DJ's room on. And I'm still sorry that I didn't buy it but.....................
Den is getting close! We have 5 canvases of different sizes so he can practice. And worse case scenario, he can paint over it with white paint and start again.
Or we could just hide it with a bad cat!
He is trying to get me to paint one, a painting not a cat. Yeah, I'm not sure about that.
Do you paint? Do you do projects the cheapest way possible? Is your cat a dick?
Dick,
Sonya
