    Dear fellow-frugalites, I have a confession to make. I have been a member for some time now, and enjoyed reading the posts and adding my bit of knowledge to the discussions. However, this was always with a slightly smug feeling (sorrysorrysorry), because I was not in debt and never thought I...

    When I am bummin hard, or upset, scared, sad, happy etc, I email my mom. I used to call her when i needed to, any time. Often every other day. And once she passed i continued to "talk" to her by emailing her. I know she's not reading them. I know it's just for my own heart, that it's just some...

    So I might not be posting much, or if I do, will have lots more typos than usual. Don't have any idea what prompted it this time, but I've had it before and this is definitely it again. *SIGH*. I can't even do my own hair. Good thing I just got it cut and it doesn't really need "doing."...

    I was using my mandolin to cut potatoes for french fries. Of course I was NOT using the guard. The potato slipped and I cut a big hunk out of the knuckle of my thumb. It bled for quite a while, but finally stopped. It's not going to be pretty though. So, always use your guard.....

    I only get to go to a military commissary once or twice a year. So, when I go, I do some stockpiling. But there were also a bunch of "oooh! that looks good!" purchases. Among other things, I bought * 15 Jars Nutella * sharp cheddar (10 1/2-lb packages) * chicken Kiev (8 servings) *...

    Today we took two geriatric cats in - one had a heart murmer and needed bloodwork to see if it's caused by his thyroid or is a deeper issue. The other needed bloodwork in the office so we could put her under to pull four teeth. I'm now 1000 dollars poorer, and the one with the heart problem has...

    Yesterday, Mel was getting up hay and wanted dd to help by driving the truck the few feet between the hay piles (in the pasture). However, he was not quite ready and she hopped up the back of the truck to wait. She didn't see the other pitchfork and Mel didn't see her jumping in the truck...

    I know how much you guys need a laugh, even if it's at my expense. Yesterday evening I was wrestling/playing with Ryan and she managed to knock me over and I landed wrong. I landed with a loud thump right on my tail bone. :ouch: I screamed! Ryan laughed and she says the house shook where I...
