  1. Blog
    Let me start off by saying Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. It seems like things haven gotten off to a rocky start. From Thanksgiving on, it has not been pretty. My family and I suffered a death in the family. We are still reeling from that one. Back at home from the funeral(we were gone 8...

    Congrats to your dad! It has been over 19 years since I quit and it still think about cigs today. Anyone who has ever done it (quit) will have to admit it is not easy but way worth it.
  3. Stay at home moms
    I couldn't figure out a good subject for this post so I tried going with humor - no offense intended if it came off wrong in a text-only media. I'm working part-time after a layoff, while my wife is working full-time. Our first child is due in October. I am going to be trying to orient my...

  5. Father's day
    My husband runs his own part time machine shop out of our garage, he has been watching for a good deal on a welder on craigslist, found one he was really excited about a few towns over, was going to go pick it up last week (he wants it not just for work but for some hobby projects he wants to...
  6. Father's day
    ~So this Father's Day I invested $107 in a Mr. Beer keg, 4 full beer kits(each for 21 bottles), a few brewing tools and bottlecaps. We have the bottles and my brother is providing the capper. The craft and imported beers we like to buy are $2 each and up. Our home brews will be $1.30 each for...

    I was just complaining about him on here yesterday. I feel horrible. My daughters' dad died in his sleep this morning. It was his 40th birthday. They had gone to spend the night with his parents. Thank God they were not at his house alone with him when this happened. DD15 found him.
  8. Father's day
    Both are boys are older 16 & 21 so making a craft is not going to be something that would be appreciated. Recipes maybe? I'd like to make something special, but steak or anything with a high price tag is just not in the budget. I really need something that will WOW him and not WOW my budget...
  9. Camping, RV's, Trailers, Outdoor Living
    As most of you know we bought our new to us RV last fall. Well, as with any RV repairs need to be made to things now and then. Our large day/night shade over the kitchen dinette broke. The main thread popped. I had no clue what to do where to go or where to start. Thank goodness for a dad...

    I got a circular saw for my hubby...as per his request. It wasn't cheap. I wanted a good quality one (not that he'll use it that much) and paid $89.99 plus tax. If he thinks that's too much he can get a cheaper one from Wal-Mart for $67.99 plus tax.
  11. Holidays-Special Occasions-Celebrations
    I don't have anything planned, except for a nice homecooked meal for Mike. I'm thinking of a pot roast, with potatoes, carrots & onions, of course. Sauteed green beans along with some cornbread & some kind of ooey gooey dessert! He's more happy sitting at home watching the Nascar race than...

  13. Relationships
    I think that my father has lost his mind. :screwy:He came over yesterday to see the kids and told me that I might have a sister soon :huh: My dad is 61 and has been single (except for a few non-serious relationships, KWIM) for the past 10 years or so. He doesn't have a good track record with...

    I confess that I went treasure hunting through my neighbor's junk heap & found a badly needed toybox for Zachary and a laundry basket for myself. They both looked great after I cleaned them up...the toybox even had some toys in it(decent condition,but too old for zach) that I will be passing on...

    http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2008/07/04/20080704parker0704.html I read this and I was wondering why the mother got 30 years... She should have the same sentence as the father?
