  8. Homesteading and gardening
    This is more of a landscaping post than a gardening one, so I hope it belongs here, but I just wanted to share that dh and I had our first real day of yard work today since we bought the house last spring. We were too preoccupied with fixing up some immediate projects inside the house to deal...

  11. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So our van situation put us into a huge predicament and as such, we had no other choice than to put the entire thing on the CC. There is no, and I mean ABSOLUTELY NO possible way we could have avoided it. I don't care what any of the "gurus" have to say about it because well, it happened. Our...
  12. Christmas
    Some (for us) major changes in our family for Christmas this year. I won't say that I am having real trouble dealing with it, more like, we have to find new traditions. It almost seems like a couple of the kids are having more issues with this than I am but to find the new 'way' that is what is...

  14. Question and Answer
    I think that I mentioned a while back that I was expecting a bumper crop of apricots from my tree. Well we picked them and we have about 25 pounds of apricots in varying degrees of ripeness. Except for jam, what else can I make with them? (BTW I don't have a dehydrator.) Thanks!!

    .. I can honestly say that it was money well spent and necessary. My DH has to wear a good looking suit, shirt and tie for his work every day and before we started bugetting in 2007, he thankfully had a good collection that didn't have to be replenished for a while. However, during 2008 we both...
