    I just added some pictures here of her Room Transformation. Hopefully it will all be done tonight and I will be able to add the rest. I did most of all this myself, except the painting of her bedroom because I could not reach the high parts of her ceiling on a chair and we do not own a ladder so hubby did that for me.

    well hubby is still laid off, we dont have any unemployment insurance yet, but it is filled out so hopefully it will come through soon.

    Robyn wanted her room changed and we are doing that as frugal as possible, she paid for her own lime green paint to paint some of her furniture, and we had the white that we decided to go with for the walls. She also went with a pink paint which I purchased but I only bought a small can. Then we went to the dollaramma here and Robyn picked out some ...

  4. lay offs

    Well.....another company that orders parts from hubbys work cut 80% off their order. This leaves hubbys work with 20% work from all places all together. Today about 130 people got laid off....Steven included....he is there until the 30th I think....because he has been with the company for over 2 years.....

    This is terrible news for us....I called in prescriptions tonight, so that will help, but dds meds cost around 250 dollars every month and stevens cost about 40.....

    Well I went and did my grocery shopping on Friday and most of that day I was just not feeling real well. Then on Saturday I ended up getting the stomach flu, so I was sick all day Saturday, then on Sunday I was really weak and tired. This morning when I got up I did not feel well but now I am fine, so hopefully I am over it. I really hope that no one else gets it.

    Robyn and Riley actually had it two weeks ago, Robyn got it on sunday, and Riley on the following Tuesday, then last ...
