  1. Utilities
    yesterday when the hydro crew were here fixing our power line my guy asked them if there were any grants available, they weren't sure but said if we want to save money to use most of our hydro at night. Apparently the cost is twice as much to use power during the day opposed to using it at...

    Was sleeping well, when suddenly our fire alarm went off at 2.30 am. Our alarm is so loud that you could almost become deaf hearing it in close proximity so we just about literally jumped out of bed. We have the same alarm as for burglars but instead of it being a constant sound it is...

    Last night hubby went down for his last smoke and to take the dogs out for last tinkle. (potty) Well he didn't come back so I went down to see what was going on. Grandma was in tears full fledged hysterics and hubby is at his wits end.. She was crying because her son spent Christmas alone and...
  5. Halloween
    HA #6 decided he was too old to go trick or treating w/us, so he had stayed behind to pass out the Halloween toys to the little ghouls that stopped by our house. When the other Houseapes & I finally wrapped up this year's routine, I took #6's place, so he could have a share of the candy that the...

    Anyone else get a chance to see the Northern Lights last night (Monday)? I missed the most active part, inside watching a hockey game. A friend called me up and asked why I wasn't outside looking up. I was pretty disappointed to say the least. Managed to get a few pictures though. I'll get...
  7. Question and Answer
    My husband and I are having trouble sticking to any plan to sit down and talk about our financed. We say we will, but then we don't. And when we do, we usually only talk about unusual expenses and not the recurring monthly expenses. I'm curious how other families do budget meetings. Do you have...

    when their son and/or stepson was involved in an accident. My dh and kids went out of town to pick up oldest ds' friend and coming back the "big" bridge was backed up with traffic at a standstill. There were five fire trucks present and a white pickup truck with a trailer hooked up to it over...

    Did anyone watch the new episode last night where the woman had all kinds of weird expired foods? I got so grossed out when she ate this black stuff out of an old dirty jar :yucky: I don't know if that show is real or staged but it was horrible!! They said she was like this because her late...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm going to visit our neighboring county's tax auction (real estate) later this week. Our plan is to first make more progress with debt payments. Then, once we have the extra cash flow available post snowballing, we want to save up and buy with cash a tax auction property or perhaps a HUD...

    2K of food for a negative balance put on a gift card? Seriously...who needs 93 bottles of hot sauce or 150 boxes of instant couscous mix in their stockpile just because? I get having stuff stored. But a lot this woman's stuff just seemed to be overkill. 600 packages of candy? I don't know...

    I've been monitoring the daily deals posted on Living Social and Groupon pretty closely the past few weeks. I was able to purchase a $25 dollar giftcard to a local Mexican restaraunt for $10 on Groupon. Today's Living Social Deal was $9 for two movie tickets through Fandango. Because a few...

    ... how weird is that? I'll tell what I dreamt but be warned it is weird - considering I have never met these people or know anything about them regarding what they look like etc. I dreamt that I was with dh and our kids at a vacation home somewhere - don't know where. Anyhow, Muse came and...

    Well, with the cooler weather I have found myself with two cats on the bed. I woke up on night to them breathing really heavy. At first I thought it was just the one then realized it was both of them. So now I have to get used to being poked in the neck while the one cat makes a "nest" at my...

    My sister found him this morning, in bed, in his apt. He had had a respiratory infection for the past week, and being a longtime chain smoker, it was reeking havoc on him. They were doing their best (my sisters) but he refused to go to the hospital. But the doc had him on antibiotics...
  20. Pregnancy
    ~I was having a ton of pressure and painful contractions all day and went in for observation. Turns out the contractions were 2 minutes apart. Fluids didn't help but the two shots of turbutaline finally allowed me to go home for the night. I contracted on and off all night but got some rest. The...
