The Long Road, But Worth Every Step

Life happens.

Our new goal has been set.

I plan on documenting the highs and lows of the road we travel.

For a less 'financial' peek in to my life as well as secret recipes from my kitchen, check out my other blog.

    I have been trying to come up with bulk-cook meals out of the items we already have in the house. So far, I am kicking butt!

    With Thanksgiving over, I picked that carcass CLEAN. The "ugly meat" (you know, the pieces that are fine to eat, but not something you want to look at on your plate) will be used in soups and pot pies.

    A batch of broth was made and I'll bag most of it as is, to use as soup bases. A few I will make in to a gravy for pot pie filling,

    It's amazing how much things can change in a blink of an eye... let's face it, 2 years is a mere blink when you think of a lifetime.

    I'm going to TRY to remember to post on here when I post on my other blog. (I haven't been a very faithful blogger) Mine is (copy & paste it because it's not a link)

    We are forging ahead in this scary, unwanted adventure.

    The Toyota Saga has been put on pause while we wait for the title. Our car journey did not end there though, seems as if there is a few new chapters to toss in.

    Thursday (I'm starting to think Thursday's are a bad day for cars) Elvis and I jumped in to my cute 2006 Kia Rio Lx. Destination: Local car dealers - sans rats. While we were traveling, we hear a woman yelling in our direction. Seems our brake lights weren't working.

    Easy fix, right?

  4. The $2400.00 Lemon Aid

    Sit back with a cool drink for the tale I am about to tell is as true as it is long.

    Thursday started out like every other day... the sun was shining, the weather was comfortable. The only thing different about that day is that we handed $2400.00 in cash to a rat.

    The rat didn't have a tail, but a rat all the same. He was a used car dealer. Now, I don't think all dealers are scammers, but this one was the shining example of why people don't trust them much.

    Don't panic! I am not hanging my pantaloons out there for public viewing.


    I'm going to toss all the facts and figures out there in hopes someone comes along and pops me on the head to keep us on track.

    The BIG PICTURE is $48,000.00 cash... not total assets, not potential assets... roll around on the bed CASH

    Monthly Bills (some fixed, some we pay extra on)

    Health Insurance - $345
    Cell Phone - $140
