    My dd gets Netflix and that is the only "tv" that we can get. The older kids(adults) have become hooked on the show "Hoarders" and let me tell you what a blessing that show has been. Before they started watching it, they would always give me a hard time about cleaning their rooms....the rest of...

    I am thanking God that DH and I did not get sucked into the start-up business frenzy over the last few years. We have two friends who jumped into start-ups, lured by very big paychecks and promises of future riches with stock options. DH was offered a job by one of these friends, a job that...

    This was planned a couple of weeks ago but it wasn't sure that it could go ahead because of previous commitments of DH. Anyhow!!! DH had been invited (with partner) to a diner party by a very good client of the company in PARIS! I have never been to Paris around Christmas. We left yesterday...
  4. Secondhand Shopping
    Some other poor soul in our little town of 5,000 folks wears a size 11W like me- and has good taste in shoes, and uses the 'swap shop' at the dump. Passed up some summer sandals my first trip there, but on my second trip found a pair of lightly used girly sketcher sneakers, size 11 (and wide...

    Just got the call from Honda - my maintenance bill today will be around $1200. I was expecting $800 - 900, and they found another need-to-do-now and one need-to-do-before-much-longer, that I might as well get over with now while the car's in the shop. But hey -- I've got a $20 coupon! Every...

    Ya know...normally, I try to see the funny or good in everything. Sometimes, when tragedy strikes and I'm laughing at something that I know one day I'll be able to look back on and actually find funny... does anyone know that feeling? Like you shouldn't be laughing when it happens, but if you...
  7. Dave Ramsey
    I am so grateful that I am following the 'Dave Ramsey' plan. Before Dave, I would not have had an EF. Now, we do and I am so glad! DH's truck needs repairs to the tune of $330. Instead of pulling out the credit cards, I can just take the money from our EF!:hurray: It feels good to know that I am...

    I have ITP. My body kills my blood platelets. My platelets are now 27,000 when a normal count is 150,000 to 450,000. The doctor is giving me gamma gobulin (spelling?) again. The cost of the medicine alone is $13,000 not to mention the cost of the doctor. It is an IV drip and must be...

    DH just called me from Midas. He has my car up there because earlier this week I noticed a VERY intense grinding noise from the brakes. I thought it could go until this weekend and after all I JUST noticed it....welll....it's gonna cost $200 to have the rotors replaced. Apparently the problem...

    The extended warranty we bought for our washer less than 3 yrs ago just paid for itself two times over. :thud: Our washer decided it wasn't going to spin or agitate anymore. Turned out to be a rather expensive part. The visit today would have cost $300!! The warranty was only $150. Oh, and...

    I know I'm not alone, I just need to rant a little. Over the summer we depleted our EF. My goal was to take it no lower than $1000, but I had hoped we wouldn't even go that far. We were building it up so much since my dh was on the ten month pay plan. We did get his retro check just in time...

    I'm not a huge fan of Martha Stewart, so I don't know what possessed me to post on the message board of her site. . . but I had posted a picture of Sarah's towel cake that I made for her shower. Today I get a message that my "cake" is on the front page of the wedding section! Hi, We liked...

    OMG, I was hanging out clothes and all of the sudden the dog went nuts!!! Barking and growling at my feet:confused: . So I look down and a HUGE, and I mean HUGE (around 8 feet long) snake was just lying there next to my foot sunning itself on the cement!!!!!!!!! MIND YOU, I had NO shoes on...

    I went to a network meeting a few nights ago. Everyone was ordering food so I ordered vegetarian--I received 4 veggies. The portions were huge!. As I sat eating and trying to finish my meal, I sort of stopped mid-forkful and wondered why I was stuffing myself, I was already full. I put my...

    My dad had just travelled to a different city for a doctor ordered break. Thursday night he ended up wandering around outside the hospital. A man asked my dad if he was ok and dad replied no. The thoughtful stranger asked if dad would follow him into the hospital, dad agreed and took a couple...

    DS#2 and I went to our local sub shop to get subs tonight. As I handed him our sandwiches through the open window, I laid my wallet on the roof of the car...and drove off! I had NO IDEA I had done this. When I got home (a five minute drive), I had a message on my answering machine that a lady...

    I went online this morning to see how much DH's check was because it is direct deposited into our checking account. Well, I was shocked to say the least. I called him at work to see if that was right. He said he would get his check stub to check it out. He was shorted around $400 on his check...
