  4. Homesteading and gardening
    So hubby and I bought our first home in December. The home was empty for 2 years before we bought it. Needless to say, our yard is in disarray. We have numerous flower beds and a nice sized garden and they seem to be well stocked with perrennial stuff... but there are dead leaves packed on top...
  5. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Hubby ( with the accounting degree) has decided that it is time I keep the budget and accounts at home. That is is something I need to know. I agree. He helped me set up the new program we are using. I think it uses what is called double entry accounting. You tell where it came from and where...

    We are still waiting to get my brothers remains back on American soil. It looks like from his date of passing until the funeral will be a tad over 3 weeks IF all goes perfect. This is hard enough with out all the uncertainty and waiting. We will hopefully be flying out one day next week if all...
  7. Home Environment
    While we await the fate of DH's job location, we started doing some planning. I sort of wish we hadn't. :( In order to sell the house, we need to prep it properly. This means staging it in a way that's going to make it stand out from the other houses in the neighborhood, plus give it that curb...
  8. Financial hardship
    My husband's hours just got cut and we're suddenly going from him earning $500 to $360 a week *before* taxes and child support are taken out. We were trying to save up for the last cell phone bill before we cancel, but all of a sudden I'm overwhelmed with trying to figure out what to set aside...

    In work, in life, I get overwhelmed by how much there is to do and how to approach it, how to budget my time, etc. As a result, not nearly enough gets done and I get upset with myself and beat myself up about not getting anything done. Take for example my house, we have two rooms that need...

    A lot of it stems from the economy, but even that aside, it's frustrating that every time we start to save even a little money, our van breaks down. It's only 3 years old (but we bought it used with low mileage), and it seems every 2-3 months it's in the repair shop with something quite...
  12. Frugal Living
    The girls and I have planned a trip to Disneyworld this summer. I know I am going about it the right way - I am paying cash for the whole thing before we go. However, I think maybe I messed up - I am so fnancially overwhelmed right now. The trip itself is halfway payed for and I will be...

    Well, this is the last week the twins are in school and I'm already getting anxiety attacks for the summer menus. Hubby is a SAHD (he's disabled) so he'll be watching the twins while I'm at work and I've tried to keep the menus as simple as I can make them, but it's overwhelming due to the...

    It is really hard to be all things to all people - or at least the people in my house. I work and make the money like the "breadwinner" and then I come home and do the home stuff like the "housewife." I am so tired and my house is such a disaster! It is just a mess. I work 50-60 hours a week...
