    I woke up feeling like crud, so I stayed home and nursed a cold all day. That being said, no treadmill, because I couldn't even muster up the energy to look at it!

    I had 1/4 mini-loaf of my applesauce bread and 1/2 nectarine, because I shared breakfast with the parrots. One cup of coffee.

    While i have an EF, after some discussion on the board yesterday, and the uncertain future of our economy, I'm going to increase savings. I'm going to mess up the order of things a little bit, and start on our 6mo EF.

    I have Baby EF. $1000 won't go far. So I'm working on it.

    My first goal is to put 3 mo of mortgage payments.

    Yesterday I opened the Tax free savings account. I transferred $65 into it. Next week I'll add a little more. I have set up a regular ...
