    I am going to put my 15 year old in a bubble! He has now broken 3 bones since July! I had him in again this morning since he had an accident playing ball last night. He broke his finger ( very obvious from the 90degrr angle it was sticking out at!) He now needs to go to a specialist to...

    We've a huge flock of Robins here for a visit this morning. Cat is going to get whiplash turning her head this way and that trying to keep an eye on all of them flitting about. Nice to see them, they are my harbinger of Spring. :sun: What's going on around you?

    I am about to sit down with my budget and new pay periods for Dhs job and rewrite our budget......OY! I really like doing it though. I am going to be able to include some overtime and I officially can take out two massive insurance payments we were making before his job started. Love group...

    A heavily pregnant stray adopted us a couple months back. She had five kittens. Three are homed, but I cannot for the life of me find homes for the two girls of the litter. Craigslist, flyers at the vet's office, local classifieds give us nothing. We spayed the mother last week. She's a...

    Do you have a one-time job you should have done by now but just keep procrastinating? Or routine tasks that you find yourself putting off all the time? What are some of the projects that you keep avoiding? Maybe we can motivate each other to just get them done. I have a piece of baseboard...

    Well in my wanderings on craigslist a few days ago, I came across a post that a lady not to far from me, was wanting to thin out her strawberry bed and was looking to either sell or do a swap / barter deal. I emailed her. I have no idea what the value of the plants are. I think I have some...

    :scratch: My mom always is telling me not to pull up my daughters hair( when its old out ), because it will make her colder. My daughter has major curls .. and brushing it once a day to keep the tangles out is .. Oh nearly impossible.. since she uses her head a lot her hair in the back almost...

    DH and I just entered our receipts for the last month into Quicken. Don't ask why we don't do this every week. We just haven't, and it's snowballed on us. I've suggested to DH that we set a time and day of the week for this...again. It used to be Saturday nights, but something happened to...

    Our local newspaper has a Sunday feature on money management. This week's article was about a national meeting the writer had been at where they discussed the rip-off consumer credit counseling and foreclosure agencies. His article ended with a quote from a speaker at the meeting that really...

    I went this morning to Lowe's and Home Depot and they have put away their seed displays. Home Depot said they won't have any more until spring. We are in Zone 8 and there is still alot of growing season left. I don't understand why they would put away the displays so early. I know they had...

    I feel so terrible about this. We took in a wild ,very small , malnourished stray over two years ago. She was sick as a dog and full of every parasite she could be. She actually lost some hearing because of mites. When I first saw her and thought she was a baby she was so small. Turned out...

    I went to the class, and submitted my info to TBI, and have been carrying a concealed handgun for about 6 months now. With the economy getting worse, and crime going up, being armed wherever you go can save your life. I think of it as a spare tire, I don't drive around expecting a flat, but I am...
  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Our ins is around 100 a month. When ds goes on (he is taking drivers ed), it will be about 300 a month. That just seems like a lot to me. DH isn't questioning it. What do ya'll think?
  14. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Each month I am sitting here wondering why my cc is over the limit as I am trying to pay it off! The balance is high and my insurance charges my monthly amount to this card (I have no choice in the matter, its the only card I can do this on) and I always seem to be over my limit each month...

    It has been coming since last fall. He hurts wehn he stands up, in his back end. We give him meds, but it doesn't seem to be helping anymore. He gets up off the floor soooooo slowly, and walks pretty wobbly. He is almost completely blind. He has congestive heart failure. Takes two meds...

    We have a lot of credit card debit and 2 mortgages. We have diligently been paying our debt down over the last 2 years. We have followed Dave Ramsey's plan to this point and it has been working! However, with the state of the economy and the constant fear of layoff I have decided to put...

    I did enroll him and he started Monday. He really likes it. It hasn't fixed all our problems at home, but I think it does him good to be away from me. to have someone else teaching him, and to be around kids his own age, as opposed to nothing but younger children. He tended to go down to...
  18. Christmas
    Anyone else getting your home ready for Christmas this weekend? If not the weekend, when do you put them up? My mom always had the house decorated the weekend before Thanksgiving...I guess I figured I should follow the tradition. Happy Decorating Everyone!!!! Vanessa

    Hi all, I had decided that come August 2009, I was going back to school to get my two-year degree. I'm perfectly fine with this change in my life and my family supports me. :) My dilemma right now is how to go about doing daycare for two kids, one of which is developmentally disabled. We have...

    From my front windows...Fog over the creek this morning and brilliant sun is shining making everything glisten. Cought the color red from the garden, tomato ready to pick. I listen and look outside often, always something to see and admire. Today the sound of a hawk had me go see what's going...
