    I know that we buy too much food at the store for our family, but I dont know how much we should be spending. I dont mean to sound like a bad wife, but it is because of my hubby. He is overweight (as am I) and likes processed foods way too much! Condoments are a must on everything for him and he...

    I bought a house last summer and I knew in time that I would have to put up a fence. Well my 5yr old son won't play in the back yard because he is afraid that his ball/whatever will end up in the neighbors yard. There is about a 3 1/2foot drop between our back yards. There is a retaining wall...
