I don't know where else to put this so i figure here is a good place.
My birthday present from my boyfriend just arrived via Fedex. I dunno what it is but i'm so excited! I can't believe I have to wait two weeks to finally open it! I can't wait for my Bday to get here.
I just bought an electric pressure cooker and it arrived yesterday. Yes I still have one from the 70's that goes on top of the stove that I barely used Hoping this is a good move. now I need a cookbook. So I need to print of some recipes I guess and put one together.

good thing it is sunny today. I guess I am planting trees after work.
I am going to espalier them As they are just 4 ft sticks with roots I still have time to read up on how to do it.
Has anyone here espaliered before?
Wife and I have been piecing together the DR plan from the library (no official FPU classes attended) and our 10 yr old has been asking questions and hearing our talks and even has been a part of our decisions envelope wise for food entertainment etc.
I checked into the FPU jr thing and found...
:welcome2: to my grandson, Bradley James!
Bradley arrived a few days ahead of schedule, which was a good thing, given that his due date, my younger son arriving from VA and my older son graduating high school were all happening within a 3-day time span next week!
He's a beautiful little...
Baby Kayla made her appearance known at 1:06 PM yesterday, March 4th 2009. She weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and was 19 inches long. As I said in my "last day thread" she looks just like big sis Paige.
I am on the lobby computer and since it was free wanted to update everyone while I was in here...
Woot! My daughter's laptop arrived yesterday! It's fantastic and I'm thrilled with the deal we got. 30% off at Gateway. $900 laptop for $600.
It's loaded nicely... it's nicer than the one I got my oldest a year ago and is about the same price (that one was a great sale too)!
For the geeks...
We bought three books:
Financial Peace Revisited
More Than Enough
The Total Money Makeover
DH has skimmed all three - but I'm the type that has to read every word. I'm about 4 chapters into Financial Peace.
I also listened to his show today on the radio - not much that applied to us today...
Yeah, I know this doesn't deserve it's own thread....lol But My cloth diapers just got here and they're too cute! I am so glad to have found yet another way to save some bucks! YAY for fluffy butts!
That is all. Back to your regularly scheduled programming.
The last few weeks of my pregnancy were just plain exhausting, lol:) I had hoped to have a couple more though.

I am thrilled to announce that Ali's Outlaws have arrived on Nov. 11th! :cheer4:

Thanks for letting me gush like a...
It's a dreary, rainy day here. :rcloud: The temps are cool and it's not going to be a real warm week here. I love to work outside when it's cool and sunny, but rain.....:sigh:
What's the weather like at your house?
Our baby boy was due August 24th, but he decided to make his debut much earlier.... this past Wednesday, June 21st.
The short version of the story is that I went into early labor and numerous drugs were unable to stop it. I had many complications and my doctor told me that I probably wouldn't...

I couldn't get to sleep until midnight last night and I"ve been up since 3am spinning (I'm usually down at 9 up at 5).
THIS is the beginning of my independance!!!
The first 2006 seed catalog arrived over the weekend!! Its the Seed Savers Exchange from Decorah, IA. Wow that was fun to look through. I loved it and loved looking at all the varieties and making note of their different characteristics.
Well, after a years wait, today was the big day. My freezer arrived. It's huge! It's the first brand new appliance I've ever owned. Since I've never had a brand new car, I can only imagine what it must feel like. It's a Kenmore, White exterior, white interior, glass shevles, one big wire...
I am shocked! I just came from the mailbox, and the bill from my Easter morning visit has arrived! $630.00!!! I nearly fell over- I expected it to be about $300, but not that much! The thing that really gripes me is that we are in the middle of getting health insurance sorted out, and if I had...
