  2. Health and beauty
    I used to use Cover Girl's 'marathon' waterproof mascara (I think that's what it was), haven't been able to find it for a while now. I wear contact lenses, and always buy 'waterproof', but it seems no matter what brand/type I try within hours I have that lovely raccoon look! Anyone have the...
  3. Question and Answer
    Just wondering how many teaspoons/tablespoons of ground coffee do you put in your 'my k-cup'? I'd like to start using ours however I've read horror stories of those that both have over filled & under filled the cup.

    This is for the teens of course. (would be nice if I could pull it off with dh? heh) Kitchen: Your mom does work here, but not after dinner hours. So please clean up when you decide to make scrambled eggs, mac and cheese, and whatever you didn't think I would notice. Notice how spotless the...
  6. Question and Answer
    but hopefully it'll get in the right spot... I teach sunday school twice a month & I teach in the 4 & 5 yr old room. We just switched up all the kids & my co-teacher & I have a problem with one of the kids. He's 4 (I think) & we're not getting much help in how to handle him (not with the...

  7. Homesteading and gardening
    Due to circumstances entirely out of my control I wasn't able to get a garden in this year....yet. I am wondering if I could still put one in....just obviously smaller and no melons like I wanted as they take longer and they probably won't be in the ground long enough. I am in Zone 5 (I do...

    I was on vacation last week and ran into a retired teacher and he asked what order of importance would you put these 4 words in. There is no right or wrong answer and depending on your age the list order will probably change. People Morals Things (Important things like something your child...
  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    We currently have an EF of about 5k in a checking acount. I also have 30k in a money market account. The interest isn't very much. 1.5% or something like that. We are considering putting part of this into an IRA or TSP. How does this affect our taxes? Is that considered federal with holdings? I...

Two days later he asked if he could go to the hospital he was in alot of pain. More tests were done. he snapped his tailbone completely off plus...
  11. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm trying to track every cent we spend, and this is where/when I start to get confused. What category would you put 'insect repellent' and 'dish soap' in? What about shampoo, soap, and other health products? I'm sure I'll be back with more questions, but I'll start with this.
  12. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    Today is the grand opening of a new grocery store in our neighborhood, Hannaford. We live in the middle of nowhere & it's a shock that they actually built here. It is very welcome because I can now walk 15 min instead of driving 30+ miles to go grocery shopping.:yippee: They are having all kinds...

    I don't know if there's a specific answer that's going to be the right one, so I posted it here. We were going to have a party, but I had to clear out all the boxes of books from the house first, which just hasn't happened. Our 30th wedding anniversary is next month. I told DH I wanted him to...

    Ok I need fun ideas for dd's graduation/18th birthday party. An activity of some type that would be fun for all ages and maybe would result in a really great memory for her or even a keepsake of some type. I thought of hiring a professional photographer to come and take casual shots during the...

  16. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    The doctor bill is a little under 340.00. Of course no interest but I'm also trying to build the savings. I have the money to pay them off now and I'm of the mindset that less bills to worry about feels like an accomplishment. I can keep paying the small amounts until paid for, but if I put...

    I have decided to start saving some water...when i empty a apple juice bottle that is made out of heavy plastic i will use it... This water will only be used for cooking and cleaning...How long after the expiration date on bottled water would it actually still be safe to drink...I have just...
  18. Meal planning
    I haven't done this in ages and probably the reason I didn't stick with it is I was too ambitious during the weeknights. As much as I love to cook, coming home from a stressful job five nights a week can take it's toll and I would give up on the "planning" part. So, I decided to KISS (Keep It...

    Well, I guess I may sound like a grinch. However, last night I spent a few minutes putting the Christmas decorations away. The wreath on the outside door is still up. While I do enjoy the holidays, I just find having the few decorations I had up very distracting. My place just felt really...
  20. Christmas
    Everyone seems to do it!!! Why would you want to ruin a perfect sweet potato with marshmallow yuck? I can't escape this madness! It's everywhere! I will take 'em baked, roasted, candied, fries, or sweet potato casserole, but I can't deal with this anymore. :P I'm going to start a petition...
