a donut chart in shades of purple and green that show the expenses below

November really brought THE DARKNESS (outside mostly, but man I really do not want to leave the house after darkness at 4:30PM.)

A few things happened:

Shipping out theses adorable budgetober stickers to everyone who completed budgetober.

Working as audio tech on a cable access worship show last-minute.


Playing Betty Lou Who in a character grinch skate at Lloyd Center rink.

Looking for flooring! So many flooring decisions.

And our bottom sheet got a giant hole in it (after only two years!!!) so after much debate and research, we splurged for new linen sheets and comforter.

  1. After a long day at work, playing the game “Love Tester” makes me feel cheerful and thrilled. I actually really enjoy playing the game. This game, which is themed on the color pink, will make me feel more in love with life than I ever have before.
