  1. budget

    by , 07-24-2008 at 09:45 PM
    O.k. We moved in to the new townhome last week and I am going to sit down tonight and come up with a budget.
    I love where I moved to I can walk everywhere and it is right next to work. The downside more places will deliver to me so I will have to watch that.
  2. I am so weak!

    It's the end of July and it's an odd week. DH gets paid tomorrow (the 24th) and our grocery bi-weekly spending is on the following Sunday. I already cut off the month of July as far as budgeting our grocery cash in and I was ahead. I decided that I needed some things, so I went to the store and figured I would snag another 4lbs worth of blueberries to stockpile before they go out of season. I also needed to check on the price of potatoes and if Superstore sold the items I needed ...
  3. Another layette for Lily

    There is a severe thunderstorm watch for today. . . hope it will at least cool things off.

    Marty is at camp -- he called early this morning to check on me. Apparently, all the fans running at camp, blew the circuits - so no power after 11:00 PM. They sweltered.

    I'm going to ...
  5. The good the bad and the ugly...

    by , 07-20-2008 at 07:31 AM
    So this week was filled with ups and downs. Actually, the last few weeks have been.

    The Good: Dh and I are finally in a better place after weeks of arguing about finances. Originally, he wanted to split all the bills so that I would need to get a second job. I knew I needed to, but he was "putting his foot down". After a huge heart to heart, we decided (well, I put my foot down) that we weren't going to split anything, but I still needed to get another job. That leads to ...
