    Because of office politics DH and two other employees have been put on notice at work. DH generally tries to keep his nose down at work, but one of the guys he works with rubs him the wrong way... and the guy happens to be buddies with The Boss. So the 3 of them are going to become scapegoats...

  17. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    Hubby came home from the produce stand with a ton of corn at 7 for .99 cents. I saw it and my heart dropped. I didn't WANT to freeze corn, but what a great deal, ya know? This is the "fruit of my labour". My boys shucked it - so that was the hard part, as far as I'm concerned. When we...

  20. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    What food items did you learn could be frozen that you didn't realize (or just never thought about it) could be frozen? I never really thought about freezing milk or eggs before I was frugal. I wasn't too surprised that milk could be, but I was surprised that eggs could be frozen. How about you?
