    I have recently switched from using self-rising flour to using all-purpose. Going great until now. I forgot to add the baking powder and salt to my muffins. When I took them out of the oven they were exactly the same size as when I put them in. BTW they are sausage/cheese breakfast muffins...

    is how much money it saves us. Wow. I spent the last two months being lazy about planning meals. We homeschool our kids and DH works from home, so it's a three meal a day plan for us.

    DH and I have been discussing the gluten free menu that we've had in place since August. While we have seen some marked improvements in DS11's behavior, we're not certain if that's something dealing with the diet or other means. This other means includes a change in medication dosage and...

    that they were supposed to PLAY FOOTBALL last night! UGH! The Saints deserved to win! I was so disgusted with the Colts lack of heart and desire to win that I turned it off at the beginning of the 4th quarter and went to bed. Manning is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play, but come on...

    I haven't worn a dickie (sp?) since I was a kid. Well I saw some at the thrift store for $.99 each. So I picked some up. Was sitting here at the computer thinking, boy am I cold. Then remembered the dickies and put one on. It really is amazing how warm you feel when your neck is covered...

    I had this goal set out of reaching $6,000 in my savings. At that point I was going to pay off my $3,000 student loan (only because it's the only one accruing interest now that it's been consolidated--what a mess). But I completely forgot that I won't be getting a pay check in June or July--such...
