Sherry’s Ramblings of the Week
BARELY FAMOUS – SEASON 2
I love this show. It is a mockumentary scripted reality show following the Foster sisters (gorgeous blondes), and it is comedic gold.
Here’s a trailer for the season 2. They’re incredibly funny. Very “Curb your Enthusiasm” if I am to make an analogy.
GOODNIGHT MOON IS MY TODDLER’S JAM
He loves this book so much I don’t even know what to say. I have no idea why but as I am reading it, I am realizing it is brilliantly illustrated because it gets progressively darker as the images go on, the kittens move around, there are different little animals and things to point out.
Baby Bun enjoys stabbing at the page with glee and saying in his super sweet, toddler baby voice:
“STAHS!!” (stars) …. “BABIES!” (baby rabbit) .. or “SHOOOOOES!”….. “SOCKS!”
There is something about this book that toddlers love.
Maybe it’s the clash of orange and green as the colour scheme, and then the rhyming.
He also loves The Hungry Caterpillar.
GAME OF THRONES
It is a killer TV series when you cannot decide who is your favourite character.
- Danerys Targaryen?
- Jon Snow?
- Lady Mormont?
- Sansa Stark?
- Samwell Tarly?
- Arya Stark?
- Yara Greyjoy?
I am loving Season 6 ROCKING the female characters leading and taking power that is well deserved.
There is nothing I love more than a good revenge story. I LOVE REVENGE.
LOSING INTEREST IN BUYING RETAIL
After reading Bargain Fever, everything looks way more expensive to me.
Polyester dresses at Zara for $70? Skirts in striped cotton for $60?
S’cute stuff but … I could wait for a sale to get it 50% off or buy it secondhand, on consignment and/or buy a DESIGNER dress instead of Zara.
These are all things that Adina knows very well about, but I never really considered until I read the book and realized the vast price difference.
This has also come about mostly because I am also looking at …..
BUYING A HOME!!!!
In cash of course.
I also didn’t want my net worth to be more than 50% invested in a house versus cash.
So my net worth being $500,000 (give or take), I only want a maximum of $250,000 in a house. Or less. Preferably less.
But I can go up to $300,000 as my maximum. It is my true ceiling.
I also don’t want to liquidate any investments, and this better be a deal.
I also know that I will have to cover my new “rent” which is my condo fees and taxes, but it cannot be as expensive as the rent I am currently paying now, seeing as I won’t have a mortgage.
I will recount the hassles I went through and lessons learned after it is all said and done.
MAY BE GETTING WORK SOON
We are in talks.
We shall see if they are willing to pony up $$ for a real professional to take care of bidness.
If they don’t, I will hang out with my favourite toddler in the whole wide world.
I would really like the money though… With this house purchase possibly going through VERY SOON, I need to make some dough to start recovering my net worth.
I’ll only put the city assessment on the place as my net worth marker.
It is what we could re-sell it for, and then I’ll just track all my other investments separately from now on if this goes through.
