  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Well, I guess I got too big for my britches a while back and stopped posting here with you all and when that happened our finances went haywire! I am still keeping up with my spreadsheet, but often find myself burying my head in the sand. The good: DH got a small raise. We have continued to...

    I've been a member here for a while but I haven't been posting much in the past 2.5 years.

I took my state boards on Tuesday and yesterday I found out that I...

    When I was younger and life wasn't so complicated, I found it really easy to go to work. This was back when DS13 was a tiny thing and a lot easier to manage. But now, speed up to 13 years later and it's a mess. He's special needs, which means it's a lot harder for me to go to work considering...

    Scroll back to 1995. I acquired a baby cockatiel, when a friend of the family, who also bred tiels (and has since retired, to my relief) told my aunt that she had a tiel I could have. I went to go visit, and the breeder tosses a little grey baby hen at me, and I realized that the bird...

    Considering the state in which I left before, it's been hard to come back. I have been thinking long and hard about it because of the circumstances of my sudden leave of absence, but decided to just suck it up and move on. Life's been pretty rough for us since July. Between marital issues...
