  2. Home Decorating
    So, I've always been beige and different earthy tones, my kitchen had a bit of a southwest feel - not all out southwest, just colour scheme and some pottery & sand paintings - the rest of the house contemporary. My new house looks out on a lake, desert decor doesn't suit. Now I've got this...
  3. Dave Ramsey
    I joined this website yesterday after several days of viewing and enjoying what I was finding. I have heard of Dave Ramsey; however, I don't know anything more than what I have read on here. I have a spreadsheet of my expenses; however, I want to do more. I'd like to incorporate my husband on...

    We've been closely monitoring what DS11 is eating during the day and if that's a contributing factor to his unexpected and sudden tantrums. This stems from a doctor's visit on Monday that has us looking at triggers and what not. Autistic children have two forms of tantrums: instigated and...
  5. Family
    While I LOVE my three year old ... I'm over it at this point. About a month ago, she was in preschool full time. She was COMPLETELY potty trained. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I withdrew her from school a) To save money (I'm a single mom who waitresses, I'm not exactly banking in the current...

    I've never actually known any Canadians except for those I've "met" online. I have some questions and I know I could probably just Google most of these things, but I wanted to get points of view from different people if possible. ~ It seems that a lot of Canadians don't drive. Why is that? I...

    Okay, As you know I have been trying to quit smoking. I had gone 3 months earlier in the year, then a stressful thing happened and back to the cigarette I went. I do have the patches (they are in my closet) I don't have one on, they tend to burn my skin. Does anyone else have this problem with...
  10. Supplemental Income, Small Business
    As I have mentioned before, I am really rotten with pricing. I've already priced a few things and I am just going to leave them as-is, but there are things I am not sure about. Can you give me ballpark what you would pay for something similar? I am thinking about selling two cabinets we...

    I went to drive the kids to school this morning and the tank was so far beyond the "E" it amazed me.  I don't even know how he managed to get home from work last night.  I wasn't going to even try to make it to the gas station.  So we walked to school and were a few minutes late. He did this to...

  14. Christmas
    Christmas. More and more I'm leaning to cutting back this holiday and letting it go. It seems there are so many stressed and all for what. To give more, do more and become more and more unhappy. Thoughts!
