    So I started looking actively with a realtor today....there is NOTHING!!! I am so discouraged.DH says be patient it'll be a LONG few months if I start freaking day 1.The problem is they are either short sales or have multiple bids since the banks want bidding [email protected]$*h**es! We got a fixed FHA...
  2. Coupons
    I went to the grocery this weekend and was armed with my coupons, sales flyer, etc. I usually get at least 50% savings during my trips and thought this time was going to be significantly more because I had a few free coupons and a few more high value ones. Well, after noticing an unadvertised...

    Were you as disappointed as I was with the Black Friday sales ads? There is really nothing at all that I plan to wake up at 4 am to go and get. I did see the jeans at Walmart for $8, but I think I can still get there around 9 am and get those. I also plan on picking up some jeans for DS#3 at...

    We had her dentist appointment last week and discussed ortho. We are moving ahead on it. However..... There's been a glitch. Insurance won't pay for the necessary x-rays($350) until after February 16/09. Why? Because on february16/07, there was a $25 charge placed for a ortho specific exam...
  5. Health and beauty
    I had a hysterectomy on 11/30/07 after battling endo, ademyosis, and fibroids for 24 years (I am 35). I had an emergency surgery in May of 06 due to a ruptured ovarian cyst. So when I had the hysterectomy I was determined to keep this last ovary unless it was in bad shape when he opened me up. I...

    I got the complete Tightwad Gazette from the library and was quite disappointed in it. A lot of things were quite "out dated" I thought. For example, we all know how crazy groceries have become. Here in Denver, it makes no sense to buy powdered milk because it equals the same price (and...

    in people??? I just want to go to bed and pull the covers over my head right now. Maybe I'm just feeling sorry for myself or something, but geez..... Last night, I was out with friends and all they did was talk about themselves and what was going on with them. I don't mind listening and...

    My dh is out of town until tomorrow so I invited a few friends over from work. They're all nice and people I enjoy spending time with and chatting with at work. One is a female, the other three are males. Well--the one I'm most friendly with (the female) just bailed out on me. She's tired...

    So, I decided to try this ship to store thing through Walmart. I bought 4 Xmas presents for the kiddos. One had already come in last week - Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader game - we just haven't picked it up yet. We were waiting for the rest of it to get there this week. So I get an email...
  10. Relationships
    Not to slam our darling husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, companions, or whatever. I just wanted to start a thread on how we all deal with disappointment in a relationship. You know being let down, or they talk but not the walk, actions speak louder the words kinda thing. I hope this makes...

    I'm not even sure I want to post this because the whole situation makes me so upset, mad,and embarassed. DD is turning 16 soon and while she can really be a sweetie, she does have a tendency to want to shop alot and she frequently needs reiminders that buying stuff is not the way to happiness in...

    I dont know if this was posted in the past but Angel Food Ministries puts out a menu once a month and anyone can order a "package of food". Check out their website to see if there is a location near you! I use them and find that we use most of the items, those we dont I give away! I dont know...

    I know in the grand scheme of things, this is minor. . . but still. I finally opened up my wedding dress (was going to see if Brenda could use my veil). The dress is yellowed, and there is a HUGE tear in the skirt. I don't remember tearing the skirt. And the veil was all mashed together-- and...

    For the past several weeks I have been eyeing up the gourmet candy counter when I leave the grocery store. Of course the counter is right on the way out the door so there is no way to avoid it. Since I need to lose at least 60 pounds I have been resisting but it always looks so darn good. Well...

    Well, remember how I was scheduled to teach that class on Frugal Living in October? I talked to the Adult School yesterday and they said that only one person signed up and so they are cancelling the class and refunding them their money. :( That totally stinks. I made up a whole little...

    Did anyone else watch Whoppi's new show last night? Me and dd did and I was so disappointed. There was way to much bad language. I could not believe that you could say SOB and B***ard on prime time. There were plenty of other cuss words too. To me the whole show was about making fun of...

    I went to the Taste of Home cooking school last night with SIL. We (and others) were disappointed. All you did was sit and watch a lady cook. I thought we would learn something, get some cooking tips, see new gadgets, etc. She made 11 dishes. She prepared them, then they were cooking...

    I was so happy to start off, planned to get my haircut professionally today, had been cutting it myself and it was really looking it, too! Next stop was JoAnn's, where I haven't been in over a year. I went in to take a look at their quilting fabric, get a little new to blend with the old and...
