  1. Vacations and Travel
    I hear talk of cheap air fares, but they're not showing up for me. I'm trying to book a flight 9 days in advance for my DH to simply come home for a weekend. The prices I'm seeing are not affordable...what am I doing wrong? Is there no other way except to book further in advance??? That...

    Hi everyone... Just thought I would share my saturday night with you. Last night, I decided that I would go through my medicine cabinet to see what was hiding in there. So, I grabbed a cardboard box, emptied the whole cabinet into box, and went to the living room to watch t.v. while I sorted...
  3. Family
    Some of you may know that I've been wanting another child. I love my DD so much and I am so glad she is in my life - but we all want to add to the family. The Old Man and I have been 'trying' for 6 years. We decided to REALLY try. After a year of poking, prodding, charting etc... we decided it...

  6. Health and beauty
    With everything going on in my life I'm itching for a new look. Some of the stuff contributing to my decision: ~~My hair has finally stopped falling out (post-op issue), but the stuff that's growing in is mostly bright white. I never thought white hair would bother me (to be fair no one else...
  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    For the past 3 months, I've had the blues because DH's car was totalled. We decided (I thought) not to spend more than $10K since he uses the truck for work and his plumbing business. The idea was that the business would pay for the truck. WHile I was at work in Baltimore, DH went out and...

    It's been hectic -- 12 hours of driving each way to visit in-laws over New Years; returned Mon night. DH is in a fit over some negligence by the dog sitter -- he wants to confront her with it before I pay her :( . Kids had a sleepover Tuesday; yesterday, the whole family drove 100 miles...
  11. Christmas
    How do you make it through the Holiday Blues? I try to be frugal and figure we'll have enough money for the Holidays, ( My family isn't into homemade ). I have been truthfully crying and depressed trying to figure out how to make my family have a good Christmas. I'm not trying to bring...

    OK, i was thinking. I know, I know, I know, no good can come of this. Don't worry, i don't do it often enough to hurt. ;) In the wintertime, we are susseptible to "wintertime blues". Doctors attribute this to the lack of sunlight. Makes sense. I get grumpier as the days shorten. My thought...

  15. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    In my dental floss thread, Kimberlina very intelligently mentioned keeping some dental floss gear for a little discreet flossing. I remembered my thing of having a manicure set with me in the glove box. I also have a zippered binder with handles (similar to flylady office in a bag, but...

    It's that time of the year again, and I've noticed the last 3 or 4 years I get very depressed around this time of the year. Usually starts in Dec and lasts until about Feb, or March for me.
