  1. Starting the New Year with a rocky start.

    It's been a tough month - not financially, but personally. Both DH & I make more $$$ than ever. But people around us are hurting. Our oldest (nephew) has been out of work for a year, just recently sold his house and is moving to Vegas on Monday. Why Vegas? Who knows. My sil and her husband are going thru a rocky spell, one that doesn't look like they are going to make it. Several people that we both know have past away this month - in their 50's!
    Emotionally this has been a H%$&@ ...

    Why do I feel like a lazy bum today? Mostly because you really can't do anything on a holiday especially on the friday of the holiday weekend. I did exercise today-I read my 4 chapters today. Had my first no spend day of the year!!! Yoo-hoo

    Son leaves tomorrow - back to his Naval life. God help me, there is an unexplain peace in the absence of your children! LOL It's the truth. I love them, I miss them greatly, but it's alot of work and disruption to my quiet life when ...

    Today was a little cool when I got up. I did turn down the heat this morning, but when I got home tonight after work it was cold! Winter has finally hit the midwest!

    But... no snow. Yeah.

    Up until today I still had onions in the garden. I did put lots of leaves by them so hopefully I can get a few more days out of them.
  5. Monday 11/30

    The gals at the office were talking this am about their "purchases" this past weekend and they about dropped their jaws when I told them I didn't spend a dime this weekend!!!
