    Morning!

    In a rush this morning. Took car into the shop yesterday so Dh could check all fluids and tires before I started packing it up for my trip on Monday and then the damn thing wouldn't start!!!! I am not only so angry I am seeing red, but scared now because it is the weekend and it is difficult getting parts and I HAVE to leave Monday! Then to top it all off my cousin was air lifted to London Ontario (he just had a stem cell transplant because of cancer) with heart problems and my Mom and Auntie (his Mom) are not doing well with it. I am needed back home (there) and with the car..ugh.

    My vent over and now on to being strong and tough again.

    madkat - Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a great day. Way to go on the weight loss girl!

    A2M - Way to go on the weight loss too! Everyone is doing so well! Prayers going up, of course.

    FW - he sounds like he needs some attitude adjustment when it comes to visiting your home. Good luck!

    M25 - good to see you! I hope your fibro is getting better.

    OM - yeah, I understand what you mean about the different crazy BIL and crazy grandma....I hope BIL leaves soon and gives you some piece. I had to laugh with the cats fighting over the fried chicken....great visual!

    Well gotta go and work on the car. Hope to be back later. Have a great day everyone and hugs to all!

    DebC-sorry about the added stress but at least it broke at home and not at some sleasy rest stop when it was cold. So sorry about your cousin also. It just poors sometimes. Please be careful driving,extra careful.

    Definately convinced I have something now. flushy and running to my fav. room. Crabby w/ DH and even though I apologized he is being a P.I.T.A. and walking around in a snit. Didn't sleep well because DH had his leg twitching again. WHERE is my tax rebate! Whine. Dh is now taking it out on the kids,5 year old!
    Thought if I drug myself thru the groc. it would pacify him but no not him! Just depressed as he--.

    Hello to all! Wow, it doesn't sound like today has started out to well for all of you. Deb C, I hope that your dh finds the problem with your car not starting. Safe travels to Canada. So sorry about your cousin.

    OM, yes you and your dh need some time away from the house. Enjoy your little escape.

    FW, so sorry that the money for the mattress has not arrived yet. Sorry too that you are not feeling well and that your dh is in a snit.

    There is so much to do, but I am so tired. Dear cat woke us up early. Then ran errands early and now feel like I have put in a full day, but really have not accomplished much.

    I am hungry and the guys are both napping, so I snuck a PB & J to hold me over. Very tired, but a little restless, so do not feel like napping.

    MT5, so glad that your fibro is a little bit better. Sorry that your work is slow.

    Madkat happy belated birthday to you!

    To all a good day and into the evening too.

    A2M

    Wnet to a nasty resale shop. Found a H.P. leather computer bag (like a briefcase w/ handles) for $12. new. DD can use it for school and look professional. Needed to get out.

    FW, I absolutely love rice krispy treats. Amazing how they fell off the shelf and into your cart. he,he!

    I hope that your evening goes better after your bargain shopping therapy.

    I ended up taking a short nap after all.

    I think that tomorrow will be a pretty easy day too. Then Monday it is back to packing and sorting.

    Deb C, did your dh find the problem with your car not starting? Did you manage to fit all of Luke's things in your car?

    OM, was your time away from home refreshing?

    I hope that everyone sleeps well tonight and sweet dreams to all of you.

    A2M

    Dean-prayers for you and your folks,

    Beautiful today and feel rested for the first time in awhile.
    DD's dog is doing better again and I'm scaling Mackey off the meds finally. The stress of exams is floating off. I think I will do Aldi's and the Dollar store today. And make an effort of the living room too.

    Thanks FW!

    Good morning all.
    2 loads of laundry on the line, dishes done, Liam went home, and I am about to run sweeper, pay some bills, and do some paperwork.
    I will stop in and check on my parents around lunch time and see how they are doing. We aren't doing family dinner today. DS and DIL and boys are going to a friends house and DH is going fishing. I get the day to myself, more or less.
    Have a wonderful Sunday.

    Good morning ladies!

    Deb--hope your car gets fixed! Prayers for your cousin!

    OM--glad you had a nice lunch with DH!

    A2M--Congratulations on your move! It sounds wonderful! I have to say, I hate packing to move--I'm glad the military hires someone to do it for us, makes moving so much easier!

    Dean--prayers for your parents!

    FW--glad you're having a better day today. You've been getting some great deals lately!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes! We went to my parents house for dinner, and have some cake, too! My DH & kids had no idea it was my birthday, until my sister said it when we got to my parents. Birthdays aren't that big a deal with us, so it was kind of funny to watch DH scramble because he didn't know what the date was!

    We stayed at my sister's house, and she had the worst guest bed ever! It's a futon, and it's like sleeping on a lumpy rock. I maybe got 2 hours sleep Friday night, so yesterday after we got back home, I was done for the day! I slept on the couch for half the afternoon, and DH & I watched movies the rest of the evening. He got up at some crazy hour this morning to go golfing with a couple of friends, but I slept in. I asked him if I was going to be a golf widow this summer--I know how it works, you go once, and you're hooked!

    I guess I should get my day started, gotta get on the treadmill, and bake some bread, and figure out what to do with the roast I took out for supper!

    Hugs and prayers for everyone! Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Hey Madkat-your sis called she said don't tell but thats to keep inlaws at home.lol ok just kidding. Ds sleeps on a futon but it has a thick mattress and he likes it????

    Well my day has been mixed. Heading out to Aldis I fell out the door-literally??? I think the piece of metal over the doorway flexed. I twisted my ankle and down I went on the porch. I got up unharmed but I think I may have scraped a few places and bruises tomorrow for sure. CAn't blame this on Mackey. And go ahead and laugh.
    Went on to Aldis,dollar store and a bookstore.
    Sad state. I closed a resale boutique and now a small bookstore is closing in our area. Small businesses dont have the draw anymore. so sad. BBL.

    I think about 30 pages have come and gone since my last post! I won't be able to catch up, but I really hope that you're all doing well! I'll try to jump into Frugal Village more than I did in April!

    I'm doing okay. DH and I have have some marriage struggles (again!) for the past couple months, but I firmly believe that if I look to the Lord for guidance and strength He WILL guide the way! DH heard some good ministry on the Christian radio station the other day about "not listening to your feeling and the reason why" (he told me that much but didn't go into detail) and I've noticed that since then he's been a little more level-headed. God works miracles, and I'm leaning on Him to work one in our marriage and life.

    Today I sold 41 boxes of Girl Guide cookies with DD1. It took a good 2-1/2 hours of selling door-to-door, but now the girls and I can sit back and know that we are DONE! Since they have both sold 15 cases (12 boxes per case) of Girl Guide cookies, they will both get a $25 gift card for a local movie theatre. DH and I will use a coupon from Air Miles, so we'll all probably get 2 movies worth out of the gift cards and coupons thru Air Miles! Yay! A lot of work, but it's worth it in the end!!

    I'm still interviewing for September's daycare space. So far I've had 3 interviews...two of them didn't get back to me, and the other said found care for the end of July (which is when the mom was going back to work). I have another interview for tomorrow evening at 6 p.m. Gotta get the house in order for then.

    My in-laws (DH's parents) visited for the weekend...since yesterday around noon until this morning around 11:30. We had a nice time.

    Guess I should sign off. I feel like laying back and relaxing! The weekend is almost over and life will soon get crazy like usual!

    Hope you're all having a good day!!
