    My pickiest eater is my youngest. Been picky from the day she was born. Yes, she would stop breastfeeding give you a "What??" look if you had eaten anything strange recently. She drowns all her food in ranch dressing. So we gave up trying to please her and make the food the way we like as...

    I wish life would just slow down a little bit. This month I have gotten an eviction notice because ODSP some how lost the cheque between them and my landlords. So I played phone tag for a week and a little to get it all sorted out. Finally it got fixed YEAH!. DD has been sick on and off and...
  6. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So we looked at our bills and tried to change them into our favor. It was harder than I thought. We researched before getting them the extras like cable internet and cell phones to get what we wanted at a good deal. So trying to lower them today was not very fruitful. Take cable and internet...

  8. Homesteading and gardening
    I love the homesteading challenge thread and have real hardiness zone envy. Here's my thought... could we start support threads based on our zones? I don't know if there's enough, but it would help to find out what grows well. The greenhouses are often clueless selling things that really don't...

    We moved in on January 15th and while we did spend the first few days eating take-out (Wok Box, Harvey's, etc.), we haven't done it ever since. Even our trips to the store to pick up supplies has dwindled in occurrence. I think for us, it's been a combination of location and fixing the menu at...

    The Month After Christmas 'Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse. The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste All the holiday parties had gone to my waist. When I got on the scales there arose such a number! When I walked to the...

So, I am going to bundle up my three foster children ( we are in...

    Well looking up prayers for DD I found this one and thought I would share. I am grateful for that which I have. I am not sorrowful for that which I do not. I have more than others, less than some, but regardless, I am blessed with what is mine.

    I have heard of Shrimp and Grits for a long while, but thought the combination sounded disgusting. Well, I saw the dish on a lunch menu at a local Lousiana style restaurant. I thought I would go ahead and try it since it was at a lunch price as opposed to a dinner price. That way, if it was...
