    I was just waking up this morning when OldMan called. Someone hit his car and took off! He was following the woman trying to get her plate. She eventually stopped but refuses to get out of her car or give her information. The police are on their way. He can't open his door. I think he is in...

    I think I have a problem. Every other Friday I feel I have to run to the store. Why? Because I did budget for it. Do I really need it, no!! I made a list, even checked it if Aldi carried it or Save-A-lot. Then my option was Walmart Super Center for the few rest. I am doing myself a favor and...

  5. Relationships
    I've been having a few problems in the last couple of weeks with some "friends". I've been friends with both for years (I went to high school with one and met the other about 12 years ago). But, lately, things have been sort of rocky. I ended up breaking one friendship and the other one is just...

    My pets are allowed just about everywhere except for tables and counters. To me areas where food is prepared and eaten is just no place for critters. What are the rules in your house?

    I found this blog ("Eggs In My Pocket, A Needle In My Hand") yesterday and the blogger has included a lovely story with pictures called: "Where Roots Run Deep". I thought it was so beautiful and inspirational that I wanted to share it with you all. Who couldn't use a little inspiration now and...

    The Olympic torch is currently passing through our small town. There is a big to-do at city hall, and right in front of my store, the runners lit the torch from one to another, amidst a big cheering crowd. It was one of those moments that brings tears to your eyes! I just wanted to share!
  11. DIY
    We have a nice sized hill in our backyard. The people behind us and the people to one side have their water runoff coming onto our property. Yes, we should have noticed before we bought but ..... When we did notice it, it didn't seem to be a problem. It comes down the hill on the right side...

    I was thinking about college and how the tendency to continue education runs in families. Or does it? So I put together a list of what went on in my family. I found some of the trends interesting. My grandparents were all born either in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a time when most did...

  15. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I may be sorry for posting this but this has been gnawing me at for some time. I may not be the most political savy person but I do think I have atleast a grain of common sense. So here it goes: WAR: Why can't we have our troops home by Christmas? I am not saying I am for or against the war, I...

    I am SO tired. Of nothing at all and everything! I'd love to just run away for a week or so and not tell anyone where I am! Money has been REALLY tight for us lately. I went to work full time in April at a state park near us. I LOVE the job and I am darned good at it. I like working with...
  19. For Sale or Trade
    We have a large dog run, approx 30x15 (guessing, but its big), well over 6' high, in the back yard of the apartments we purchased in April. It is set in concrete, I believe, but its free if you can dig it out and haul it away. PM me to make an appointment to see it, if you are in driving...
  20. Home Environment
    I have a category in my budget called "household" and basically it's for the stuff you need to run a household. Some is for the house itself, some for cleaning clothes or people, and some is HBA but I include it as part of the household stuff. Basically it's anything you need to stock in a...
