  3. Family
    I used to have the most wonderful parents in law that you could imagine. I lived with them for 6 months before DH and I got married and he was still studying in the UK and I had already moved to Holland. (I worked and looked for a house for the 2 of us in this time.) They were energetic...

    Just a little update on my progress. It seems like this last month is national "keep Linda's money" month. I have a plan, I have a budget, cutting costs but it's so frustrating when others put a wrench in the works. I get paid bi-weekly. Last pay period I worked alot of overtime in addition...

  10. Health and beauty
    It's so frustrating, sometimes, when you are trying to lose weight. I got down 5.5 pounds, and then I'm fluctuating on a daily basis. Makes me crazy. Even if I don't weigh myself every day, it's still fluctuating. Some days I can exercise. Some, I can't. Julia doesn't nap, and Patrick only...

    Part of dd's disability is she has a hard time retrieving things. She'll go to ask a question or say something and its totally gone. She can't bring it back up. (She has microcephaly - small head). How frustrating it must be for that to happen over and over again. I know its...

    Here goes... Nearly 3 weeks ago, the county came and stripped the blacktop off of my street for resurfacing. They have not come back to finish.
