  1. Discount Stores
    I have not shopped at Aldi's for years now and I decided to go there when DH announced that he wanted a nice steak and shrimp dinner last night. I had a couple of nice sizzlers in the freezer that I purchased from the farm and I planned on making the shrimp, baked yukons and a nice pasta salad...
  2. Sewing
    And cleaning...who cares! I needed to sew..lol. Here is the original item, not the hole in the knee but otherwise in good condition: ANd the re-invented: Not a great picture, these are now capris, they are just below the knee. Trimmed with whatever I had. And bits of fabric. No money...
  3. Health and beauty
    I'm about to embark on an adventure of sorts. My wise guy brother in law (BIL for anyone wanting to learn a new internet abbrev.) gave me a 'funny' gift a year ago for Christmas. It was called "Belly dancing for Fitness". Haha. REeeealll funny. Anyway, one day last year I got to watching the...
  4. General Chat
    I know that there are lots of germs in the world, but I am relatively clean and I guess I would prefer to not be neurotic about certain things. But, e-coli all over my hands when I'm transferring laundry to the drier? :ugh::nerv2::ack: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21423163/?GT1=10450
  5. Computers
    Every time I try to use the apostrophe key, I get some sort of "quick find" that pops up on the bottom of my page. It doesn"t happen with the "" marks (as you can see I couldn"t put apostrophes in either of these words)

    What are they and who are they for? Who do you have to know to get into one? :invisible
  7. General Chat
    :foot: I broke, I choked, I fell off the wagon.............................. I was about to get my haircut at the mall (Ok decided this is dangerous, need to find another place to get a haircut), Gripey was with me and we had some time to kill (alarm bells going off everywhere, eh?). We were in...
  8. Homesteading and gardening
    I'm going to leap into urban homesteading! All this started when I was mowing my front lawn, and thinking that this was truly the only place left in the yard that was full sun. I remember seeing on one homesteading site how they had "landscaped" their front yard with edibles, and I thought "I...

    To be Pee'd off than to be Pee'd on! GEEZ!! DOGS!!!! After the fiasco yesterday morning you'd think I'd had enough dog drama in my life right? OHHHH NOOOO! We went to a friends house last night to look at a young bull for sale, now this is a family that's known my family for more than 60...
  10. Third Agers
    Gripey and I took our youngest dd to the lake (per her request). She has been dying to go since we got our boat so we did. All 3 of us water skiied. It's been over 15 years since I've been up on a slalom....took me 5 times to do it but by golly I did it! I'm already sore....think I pulled a...
  11. Health and beauty
    I've been using the same hairdresser for about 20 something years. She's a girl I went to school with and I like her a lot. But sometimes she doesn't do what I want her to, to my hair. She gets a little carried away talking sometimes and will just go wild like Edward Scissorhands....:ugh: Anyway...
  12. Question and Answer
    Me? I buy Starbucks espresso beans and have them grind then to a #3. That is the setting that I use to make my latte every single morning with my Starbucks barrista that sits on my counter. Actually, come to think of it, I am still saving money by not have a latte out every morning at 3.00 a...
  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    ...and its bad. I mean, really bad for someone my age (23). $15,750! Well, I'm sure some people come out of college with this much debt (or more), but I lucked out in not having too much loans. Sadly, half of it is cc bills and other utilities, etc. So I'm not sure what to do from here. I...
  14. Health and beauty
    I have been hiding a icky little secret. My heels are horrid. They are cracked and often bleed. They flake and even chip. You can thump em with a utensil and hear it like knocking on a door. THey are sore and hurt so very bad to walk on them. They cracked open and sweat or sock fuzzies get in...

    In the past month our water softner, tv (last week) and as of last night our 13 yr. old refrigerator died. :angry: Was up at midnight moving stuff from the big fridge to an old old (not very energy effecient) small one we usually leave unplugged and only use for soda & beer when there is a get...

    We're NOT allowed to shoot them! I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS MAN, HONEST! BUT!!! Why oh why oh why do they question us?:beat: I'm laid up with a bum leg right now and strict Drs. orders to STAY OFF OF MY FOOT! Chores are NOT that hard but specific, certain horses have to go in...
  17. Home Environment
    They were more like dust kangaroos! I can't believe how many I had! I have to say that as far as my living/dining room go they are history. I started to take a picture of them but was afraid of being banished from this forum and the homekeeping101 :laugh: It was bad girls, really, really...
  18. Health challenges
    I've had it. I spend more time *thinking* about losing weight and getting fit than actually doing something about it. I'm tired of starting and stopping. This time I will really see it through to the end. This morning I started WW CORE again, and I did WATP walk & kick (kickboxing). Summer...

    ...but I knew I'd struggle with losing or even maintaining my weight while away. It was mostly difficult because we were staying with my IL's, and though I did buy some groceries, we went out a lot, and the restaurants were not ones that I would choose. So anyway, I gained back 2 lbs, but...
  20. Family
    I'm a huge advocate of co-sleeping. My oldest has slept with us since day 1. DS #2 hated sleeping though so we had a bassinet and then moved him to his crib after a few months. He has always slept better alone which is great for him though a bit sad for me. Anyway, when DS #1 turned 4 we...
