  1. A few of my favourite distraction sites

    by , 08-18-2011 at 09:56 AM (Figuring out Frugal, Working on Fabulous)
    Feeling so stressed out all the time renders me static. Unable to move forward or backward, unable to make a decision, a choice, or even a sandwich. So, like any child of the 70's (!?!??!) I turn to the internet to distract me from everything and give my mind a rest from trying to work everything out all at once.

    I have found that Jenny Lawson The Bloggess and her giant metal chicken can make me forget my woes.

    Love, love, love Stephanie O'Dae's crockpot cooking ...

    I am looking over the budget that me and my df made for when we get married and join checking accounts. So far, it is in balance with $1.38 leftover each month. We do have some expenses that aren't included and I'm not sure what to change as the expenses aren't reoccuring expenses. One is school books and the other is school tuition.
