week 25

v515_4This is a late post that was scheduled for Friday. There won’t be posting this week. I’m crazy amounts of behind. I owe you a bee post, a post about a fun app that helps you avoid Monsanto & all sorts of things for the July vegan craziness.

There won’t be a budget update this week, because I am home in Ohio for all sorts of shenanigans. My sister graduated from high school, which is something very hard to process. So, we’re taking the week to get ready for her graduation party, go back to Cedar Point & get into as much trouble as possible before we both start acting more adult. (Bahahahahaha.)

I honestly don’t know if I’ll be posting at all until Monday, June 10. I’m allowing myself the break. Forgive me. I want to focus on laying in the back yard with my sister, possibly playing on a Slip & Slide, reading at the breakfast table with Mom & holding onto the last few days of childhood-esque summertime.
