I don't have much blogging mojo these days but wanted to let you know what's been happening:
1. Our new windows were installed to replace defective ones by the window manufacturer. The whole process took 1 hour to replace five windows using the existing frames. No paperwork was involved at all - now that is a warranty!
2. I received a rebate of $21.50 this week from Checkout 51(this isn't a referral link as they don't have a referral program) which you upload receipts for certain products and they rebate a certain amount depending on what is on their list each week. If you live in Canada I highly recommend it. They email you your offers for the week every Wednesday. It should be noted that some offers have a limited number of redemptions available. It took me 10 months to get to the level where I could cash out as only use it for things I already buy, just like how I use coupons. This money goes directly into the Christmas 2015 fund.
3. Buddy's eye is 95% mended. He no longer has to wear the cone of shame for scratching his cornea. It is quite amazing how quickly cells in his eye regenerated. When I took him back to the vet and they put the dye in his eye to see what damage was left the area that was previously as big as my thumbnail shrunk to a few pinpricks - yay! We felt like such bad dog parents when it happened but as with regular human kids, unless you lock them in a padded room 100% of the time sometimes sh*t happens.
4. Buddy turns 6 months old this week. We have hopefully our last big vet bill of the year looming. Buddy is being fixed in 10 days as he has some teeth that are not falling out in time for the new teeth that are coming in behind. That is our signal that it is time - they do the neutering, teeth and michrochipping all at the same time. This is a vet bill I was expecting in the next month or two so have been saving for it.

I have been enjoying a bit of down time this week as hubby is away on business and gets back late tonight. It is a three day weekend in Canada with Monday being Victoria day (as in Queen Victoria) so we can relax and get some yardwork done including hubby mowing the grass (I know, it's long) and me weeding and planting annual flowers in my front flower bed. That could have been done a few weeks ago here as the weather is fine to do so but I have not had the time, If warm enough we will be getting the kayaks out this week. Finally some fun and non-business stuff!
That's all I've got - have a great weekend everyone!
