    Hold me down! :hurray: I'm floating on air! :cloud9: I haven't seen my oldest (26) for 14 months. I haven't seen my younger son since last June (almost a year). I can't wait to get my arms around their necks and hug them till they scream uncle. I can't wait to smell their smell (you know...

    What a morning! Woke up to take a shower to get ready for church. What a eye wakening moment when I had to take a shower in COLD water!! BRRRRRRRR! Our hot water heater has went out or maybe just the heating element. DH had to work this morning and said he will look at it when he gets home. I...

    I just thought of this today....when guests visit there are some frugal habits that I stop doing in deference to my guests. It's not that I don't believe in my frugal ways, or that I don't want to be an example of money-saving measures, but it's that I realize that some of my measures are...

    Yesterday, I got up to go take a shower before work, and I was hit with incredible pain. Low abdomen, slightly to the right. I couldn't sit at all as it increased the pain too much. I tried a hot shower. I tried laying down, but unless my knees were pulled up tight, that was too painful...

    So our Murphy attack continues... first the computer went. Then the van broke down. The van has been at the mechanic since Friday. They thought it was the o2 sensor. It's not. They put the old one back in and didn't charge us the $484 for it. Then they thought it was the mass fluid sensor...

    I have to vent here about my dog.... He has not been well for the past week or so. We took him to the vet yesterday and they did a blood panel. As I waited all day for them to call with the results, of course they called while I was out with the kids at karate. The message was 'It's...

    I do not have physiotherapy coverage in either of my insurances. I can ask to be referred to Community Rehabilitation Services, but I'd like to know what other options I have. Is it expensive to go to one? The orthopedic surgeons won't see me unless I've been to one, but I have a history of...

    I regulary shop thrift stores, but while out with a friend of mine yesterday I stopped in a thrift store with her. It appeared she's never been in one before. She appeared to have the 'ick' factor going on. I needed a pair of rubber boots for my dd and didnt want to pay full price. So anyways I...

    Well, I posted earlier that I had finally gotten my fiance on board. Between the two of us, we have come up with $700 for our emergency fund, and I sold something of mine on eBay for $300 so we will have our BEF as soon as PayPal releases that money. In FPU we are on the lesson of creating a...

    I'm really not sure how often I should try to visit my local thrift shop. I have two that I really like, and lately have been visiting them every week or so. Do you think that is too often? Not often enough? How often do you go?
