Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #29-Gotta Love the Neighbors

Less than 48 hours ago, it was 63 degrees Fahrenheit. Today it’s 30 degrees, and we are having a winter storm warning. Normally I wouldn’t care, but my husband had to drive 60 miles to take a test for his master’s degree at 7:30 AM this morning. He made it OK, and is taking the test right now. If he passes, this is essentially the last step before he can move up the ranks from teacher to administrator. While I don’t quite understand why, he really wants to do that, so send good thoughts his way!

Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #27-Ski Lessons and Foster Puppies

Last night concluded of ski lessons for our daughter. They were at Hesperus, a little mom and pop ski area near us that offers night skiing. If you’ve only skiied in places like Aspen or Vail, Hesperus is a bit different. They have 3 crooked metal sheds for buildings. The biggest one sells hot chocolate and candy bars and has what look like used school cafeteria tables. They only have one old, two-seater lift. I love it, all of it, and it’s cheap. After six lessons and $180, our daughter can now get off the lift and ski down any green run there. Well worth it. Considering I didn’t start skiing until I was 25, it’s pretty impressive. We also have another foster puppy. This little spud was abandoned at the park with a huge hernia hanging out. After some surgery, the shelter needed a place for him to recover, and since my house doubles as the wayward home for lost and misplaced dogs, we couldn’t say no. He is definitely a puppy, but is very stoic for such a little guy. Luckily he has a home lined up next week when his holding period is over. This has been ...

Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #24-Oh No, You Didn’t

I’ve been working a day a week on the Ute Mountain Ute reservation for almost a year. Nothing special about that, but if you know me at all, I am a huge sucker for stray dogs. There is an endless supply on the reservation. I have turned a blind eye for many months, but finally brought home two puppies who were wandering in the road yesterday.The call to my husband started this way, “Please don’t divorce me, but….” He knew right away I was bringing home a dog. He says I could buy a new car, take out a new mortgage, or buy any crazy purchase without that phrase, but if I’m asking him not to divorce me, it must mean a dog. He didn’t divorce me, and we are now fostering two adorable, but very naughty puppies. Never a dull moment. There will be some great stuff coming up next week, including some awesome giveaways. Come back if you like free money!

Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #23-Raised By Wolves

Happy Birthday to me today. I am getting this list together a little early so I hopefully won’t have to do any blogging on my birthday. Not that I don’t love it, but some days, you just need a break. We are going to see a program at the library today presented by Wolfwood, a hybrid wolf sanctuary. Since I love animal rescue, this is right up my alley, and there will be two wolf hybrid ambassadors to meet and greet. I can’t wait. I also get a night out with the family at my favorite Mexican restaurant. If they find out it’s my birthday, I’ll have to wear a sombrero while they sing a Mexican version of Happy Birthday.

Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #22-I’m Old Edition

The temperature is back in the 30’s Fahrenheit again and I feel like pulling out my shorts and tank tops. We had an eclectic week with ski lessons for our daughter, a flat tire for my husband, and a PPD test for me. No, that is not some unspeakable disease. The clinic where I work on the reservation requires that all providers be tested for tuberculosis annually. It makes me want to cough just thinking about it. In just seven short days, I will turn 39. Holy crap, that’s old! I still feel 25 until I try to stay up past 10PM.  I’m too practical to have a mid life crisis, so you won’t see any Botox in my future. Although, I wouldn’t turn down a good facial and massage.
