    Some people are so unbelievably stupid. While I was at the grocery store this evening, minding my own business & weighing some apples, 2 older ladies started yelling at each other. They were at least in their 60's...one had her son w/her & the other lady had her dh w/her. Anyway, the lady w/the...

    Well it is that time of the year. Fall is here and it is getting cold. Which seems to send my body into the idea that I really need to get the fat stockpiles on my body upped for the winter "starvation" that might be coming. For whatever reason this happens every year. I am trying to eat...
  3. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Last year or tax value went up 33K. I thought it honestly was close to the fair value as we had gotten away without a change in years. The state I live in didn't think our townships tax accessor was taxing our township values fairly so every home in our township redone this summer. This is the...

    Right now I am trying to fight the urge to go out to the thrift store. For some reason I think I need more blouses. Which I do not and my closet has more than it can hold. I keep on telling myself I need to wait until the beginning of next month. Anyone else trying to resist the urge to...

    I have hit a bit of a plateau with my new financial outlook. I am still on track sonwballing, building bef, etc. but it has been a few months now, and I am kinda bored. I need to find a way to switch things up so that I don't feel deprived, or like my life is really monotone. I'm stuck for...
  6. Home Environment
    So I am in the early stages of decluttering my house (I have peekd in the closets and reacquainted myself with the stuff that has accummulated in them!), and have a question for those of you who have done this process: How do you keep from convincing yourself, a la good frugality that you...

    Pretty interesting article on Americans fighting for their right to hang their laundry out to dry. Thought some of you might enjoy reading it. Hanging the Laundry out to Dry

    Hey, it's me.. you know, the crazy guy who regularly BIKES 20 miles each way commuting to work. Well, guess what? I got pulled over on the way home tonight. I'm so used to drawbacks and BS to deal with from having to get out of debt that I didn't unload on the officer, but I wasn't happy...

    Last week, we had an issue where DS6 was fighting with other kids in his classroom. He was grounded from the Wii and from the computer for four days after that. Today, I got a note from his teacher about him fighting with another boy in his classroom. He punched the kid in the back of the head...

    It seems from the beginning my 7yo has fought me tooth & nail in doing ANYTHING that even remotely resembles school. I know he's only 7 and he's an immature 7 at that, but I have a really hard time just letting him do whatever all day (which usually involves playing with his cars, Star Wars, or...

    1. I rear-ended a car this morning. So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car. You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny? Yeah, well I couldn't believe it.... he was a DWARF!!! He stormed over to my car...

    This is the craziest thing I've read lately! I can't even imagine being there during a fight. Weird!!! http://www6.comcast.net/news/articles/odd/2008/03/03/ODD.Brawling.Moms/

    Fighting the Financial Fear Factor Overreacting to market volatility and underreacting to debt are both foolhardy. Know when to act and when to sit still.

    Two weeks ago, we got Sassy. Today, I got her twin sister (not kidding), Sam (samantha). Sassy keeps trying to fight with Sam. Will they stop? Do I break up the fighting? Do I just let them go? Sassy is smaller than Sam.

    my dd (age 3) has been burning up a sky high fever since yesterday. she has practically slept all day yesterday & half the day today. she is starting to feel better today.....fever is gone (thank god). her fever was so high last night she took her own clothes off & slept in her pull-up. i kept...

    Okay, I set the thermostat back to 63 since it is cold enough here for the heat. It is getting into the 30s at night, but near 60 during the day. So, it only comes on at night. DH keeps turning the darn thing off! Not only does it get WAY to cold in the house (as evidenced by my icy tea...
  17. Laundry
    I'm always looking for stain fighting tips. Zachary got some stamp ink on one of his sweaters and I didn't even realize it would stain until it was already out of the dryer. ugh I'm hoping it fades after a few washes. Usually, I just rinse stains right away or soak in the sink overnight with...

    This absolutely amazes me... I have seen this posted on several groups, and it just floors me... Unless I am mistaken, the tone of the article suggest that cancer fighting nutrients are really bad because they mix with chlorine to become these horrible mutations that have been, "tormenting...
  19. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    This is probably the strongest post I've ever written here. With the beheading of another person, I am even stronger in my belief that we are indeed in a war against evil. And the evil is not our President. It is the animals who could give a rat's...about Americans or anyone who believes what...

    I haven't been as busy in the village as I would like to be this week. I have been fighting a tummy virus, or at least I think that's what it is. My tummy actually hurts like when you were little and ate too many green apples. I don't have a fever but feel really tired and everything tastes...
