    One of my 20 wishes is to paint my "woman cave" otherwise known as the puter room :D. I wanted something cheerful and I picked "pumpkin pleasure"...which is really odd for me cuz, it's a shade of orange and I generally don't do orange. Here's a link showing the color: Olympic A22-6 Pumpkin...

    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...
  3. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I asked the other day for some budget sites/ programs that yall liked to see if I wanted to make a change. I decided that I am going to stick to a pen and paper, but I have simplified it all into a single binder instead of having a file for this and that. Everything in one place! Thanks again...

    Why? Several reasons really; some of which I've just noticed. For example: His food. He gets the same brand regardless if there is something on sale for cheaper. Me? Do I buy Kraft cheese if the store brand is less expensive? No. Do I get Garnier or Herbal Essences shampoo if it isn't on...

  12. Homesteading and gardening
    We have a 14x4 plot in front of the house. It gets full sun most of the day and would be great for planting. We also have a 20x8 area on the side of our house, which would face to the east, that gets a decent amount of sun during the day. I'm debating making that area into a larger planting area...

    I get tired of cooking the same old thing all the time and want to be creative and add to my recipes. It seems the last few times I have tried something new, my dh says he likes it at first and then says he don't.(really I can cook :P) What happens is that it gets thrown into the trash because...

    when dh finishes school we want to move. We both have been thinking about this privately and the other day when we were out for a walk the conversation came about. Apparently we both want the same thing. MORE SPACE. And I don't mean a larger house. Heck probably smaller. We both want a cabin...
