  1. gardening and taxes

    by , 03-01-2009 at 05:59 PM
    Well my husband eyeballed the taxes and over 30k went to the Federal and probably another 20k went to the state. Then all the property taxes on all the land. I hope I don't also loose the college write off. I already got bitten on that one a last year, my 22 year old worked hard and graduated early, but because she graduated in less than 5 months they would not let us write off any of the college expense.She also married so lost another dependent also. The 25 year old is over age so we can't write ...

  2. The fun is over.

    by , 02-27-2009 at 08:42 PM
    I have been enjoying myself the last few weeks. I have been not working much (less than four hours a week on the second job). They called and asked for me to commit to 30 hours a week again or loose my spot. I do not really want to but with the economy in a stink, I think I like the safety of the second job being able to pay my bills if the first falls thru. I am doing good at the first job, but if things really deteriorate. I have enjoyed the time off. I still did not get things done as much as ...

    Well gold is really picking up. My coin investment looks great on paper up over $300. as I bought 2 oz.but I would not want to sell unless I had to. I also scared myself with the Drum-runners.com web page. He has some great links on there. I usually check out the site- earthquake.usgs.gov
    for all the latest earthquakes as I think they move in a wave and they are predicting a big one out here. I then check on the Drum-runner.com site and check the news UK link. It has all the news stories ...

  4. Where has the time gone

    by , 02-19-2009 at 09:29 PM
    I am bushed and the week is not over. I did more stockpiling. I had company, BIL over the weekend and then my brother stayed over as he is going back to Ohio to finish his RN with his GI bill. He is an LVN already. I am going to miss having him close at FT Irwin but he is going home to find a place to live and will be out by March 14,2009. I took him and his family to the airport this morning.Work has been a fire drill, one fire after another. I did stockpile quite a bit. I bought a lot of wine ...

  5. Friday, Friday, Friday

    by , 02-13-2009 at 11:21 PM
    Well the weekend has arrived. My husband bought me a dozen red roses and took me to dinner at Acapulco. He is well trained. He bought the roses at the supermarket and we used a coupon at Acapulco for getting the second entree for $2.99. DH knows I hate going out on Valentines because I dislike crowds and waiting so long to be seated. I am just drinking tea and maybe will have some wine before bed and checking out my fellow frugalites. It has been hectic week at the main job. The hospital had a ...
