Big Bertha’s Weight Loss

Happy 2016!!!!!

We’re back and blogging after a delightful holiday season. Hope yours was full of joy, laughter and love!

We’re super optimistic about 2016 already. Here are some of the bigger goals we have set for ourselves (God willing):

  • Debt free except the mortgage by January 1, 2023 (Wow!)
  • Big Bertha up and running by May 2016
  • 100% Fenced-in yard by January 1, 2023 (and maybe a deck if we can “swing it”)

So, while we you (*cough*) were all gaining weight over the holidays, Big Bertha was, well, becoming less “big”.

When you met Bertha, she was ghetto a marsupial.  Let me refresh your memory:


Since then, this happened:


Man, wouldn’t it be super sweet if we could just drop off our extra holiday weight somewhere?!?

So, without more adieu, I’d like to introduce to you “Slightly-less-big Bertha”!


Now, I need to call in some backup because I have no idea how to re-wire what is in that trash bag!
