  1. Mornings preparations and deals

    by , 04-18-2009 at 09:30 AM
    I have been busy with sick family members and work, and getting my sons paperwork together for England. So I haven't had time to catch up with everyone on FV. I have to run and do an express mailing this morning. The 3rd in 2 weeks. I did manage to go shopping last night. I purchased 12 bottles of wine and had 2 five dollar coupons off on flowers and 16.00 off of meat with purchase on top of the wine being on sale. I received the case additional 10%discount and purchased mark down ground pork for ...

    I have been busy with kid things. Last weekend we watched my son play soccer on the UCI-Club team, they tied with one of the San Diego colleges- I think USD. I then attended 4 games of my daughters soccer tournament at the Rose Bowl. I walked 5km around the Rose Bowl and after watching 5 games of soccer without sunblock I was burnt red. . I am majorly pealing.Well I passed another birthday, 48. I am creeping ever closer to the big 50.We picked my son up from college, he is getting his paperwork ...

  3. Contemplating,planning,pr aying

    Well, I received 3 notices from the city of Akron, Ohio. This city is a pain in the pattooty. They sent me a notice of an impound of a car that is not mine. That someone dumped trash at the house and they would fine me if I didn't get it done in a week and of course they mailed it from Ohio, so by the time I received it I had like 2 days to get it done. Today I received notice that siding needed fixed- I did this last year- so unless something came off in a storm, I can't think what they are talking ...

  4. looking down, looking up

    Well I have a feeling my husbands raise is gone. The firefighters for his city have already given their raises up and they had a meeting yesterday so their raises are probably gone. This will affect his retirement pay quite a bit, but glad to have a job.They are talking of layoff, but that shouldn't affect him due to his long years of service.Other bad news a hospital close to my hospital laid off 56 people and cut all benefits down to just medical, they must be ready to go under if they are cutting ...

  5. Back in the Saddle again

    by , 03-27-2009 at 09:35 PM
    Well I am back from Austin.Tx. I really loved it. The trees and hills reminded me of Ohio and the large oak trees remind me of Central CA but a lot more of them. The houses were more expensive than I thought but good quality for the price, still very much cheaper than here and the gas price is around 50 cents cheaper than CA. I will probably wait till after 2012 to go unless finances are not an issue. We checked out the college at San Marcos for my daughter and it is a beautiful little college town ...
