Tightwad Tuesday: The Lame Edition

I’m saving electrons, or something.

I just can’t get it together to write TT today.  I hope I can get back on track soon, but I am doing some contract work this week which has me away from the house and very busy (ironically online, but I really have to focus on the work) for 7-8 hours a day.  Plus I am having a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions, which are probably harmless but have us a bit concerned with their frequency, intensity, and duration.  Our midwife isn’t really worried but does want to check me again before we leave town for Cait’s uncle’s memorial this weekend.  I’m not sleeping very well (this pregnancy is MUCH more physically uncomfortable than N’s).  The house is a big mess as we continue to try and get organized for becoming a four-person household.  And Natalie is having trouble with a variety of minor issues so Cait is taking her to the doctor tomorrow (probably nothing but we are paranoid).  So it all adds up to a tired, stressed out, messy me*, who will benefit greatly from going to bed at this hour instead of trying to churn out some kind of inspirational prose about financial prudence.

*Although I was greatly cheered to see the links to the two blogs that mentioned us… that was an unexpected bright spot this evening at a fairly low moment.  Hooray for the Internet.


  1. I hope you all manage to get some rest– I think waiting for the next edition of TT just makes us want it more!
