    It sounds like you got the most precious thing of all; to be forever able to look at those items and relive the happy memories you shared with your grandfather.
  3. Education
    Dubya started kindergarten on 8/22/11. I was a bit concerned about having him in public school for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons is because Dubya is very smart and I was worried that a public school system may not be the best fit for him. My concern increased considerably when we...

    So the first snow fall is here. I think it was about 12 inches of snow. Hard to tell because of the wind. Apparently the roads are manageable around here since I will be going to the grocery store. Heck, cheese is on sale. I did shovel a small path from the steps to the parking lot. Luckily...

    I just found out today I received a partial scholarship to attend a class in NYC. Am really excited since I haven't worked in clay in a long while and have been wanting to get back into it. Unfortunately I need to come up with the rest of the fee so I figured it out and will be able to pay...

    I got our electric bill a couple days ago and it had one of those inserts in it that I used to toss. No more. In it it had the On Peak and Off Peak information. This is for Progress Energy in Florida. Most electric companies have peak hours. Call and ask. Wanted to post the pricing to show...

    > > An Obituary printed in the London Times ........ Interesting and sadly rather true. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red...
  9. Frugal Living
    My DH (sole earner) was laid off January 15th, pretty much out of the blue. I called our mortgage company the next business day to let them know the situation and to make 2 months of payments (so we wouldn't have to worry about it for that long). They said that since Freddie Mac "owns" (that...

    I was out running all my errands w/ both of my kiddos. My youngest is 2. Well, she had an accident. Not a little one but a big one. I'll leave the TMI out of it but she christened a chair in the library and our local branch here doesn't have a public restroom. Some kind sole of a lady gave...

    I'm hoping I posted this in the right spot. If not, please move. Just curious to see others' take on what you received that you thought was the most useful and the most unuseful. After being at this for only a week and a half, here is what I can think of so far. I'm hoping this will help...

    I went to lunch with 2 co-workers and we saw a family with their daughter that had attended our elementary school. We went to check on them, say hi, and see how the daughter was liking the 'new' school she was attending. We are a primary school, grades Pre-K - 1st and she will be in the 3rd...

    I have this old Capital One CC account that I haven't really used in years, but I keep it open because it's my oldest account. Also the interest rate is so low that if I never need the card for an emergency where I couldn't pay in full immediately, I would use this rather than my normal Chase...

    The other day I received the dust buster and a battery operated pan cleaner that I had won from the Maxwell House instant win. I absolutely love the dust buster. It is a black and decker and it is so powerful. Watch out dust bunnies here I come!!!!!!!!!!!
  16. Christmas
    I was thinking about this tonight & mine goes back many years when I got a transistor radio for Christmas. In my teens I was in heaven at the park or wherever I walked or rode my bike to, listening to music and singing along. Things were hard. (dad died when I was 13) & music sent me to...

    This is so sad. A fellow adoptive parent of 6 (father) has shot and killed himself under the water tower in our town tonight. He and his wife seperated a few months ago and I was told tonight that he was trying to get back with her. I guess it didn't work out and he decided he didn't want to...
