    of being sick and tired! I just can't tell you how long it has been since I have woken up in the morning ready to face the day. I am SURE my kids are tired of hearing "mommy doesn't feel well".

    I have been trying to find ways to cut back on a bill or two so we can increase our snowball and I found 2 bills today that I could get lowered. I called my auto insurance company today and got my insurance lowered by $210.00/6 months. Then I transferred my home insurance to them and have better...

    To celebrate that Fiori got a really good grade in her final IB exam we went to the movies yesterday evening. It was ladies' night at one of our cinemas.
