Morning ladies!It is truely totaly tightwad tuesday here.Just found out dh is getting a pay cut of $5 per hour.(he went from salary back to hourly after telling his boss he wanted to work back out on the floor and not be foreman-he was doing both at the same time)But on the good end of it all if he keeps working the hours he was working on salary then he'll actually bring more,i'm just preparing for if he doesn't.If you figure up the hours he was working being paid salary then he was making a lot less per hour.So anything over what he was making salary goes into savings.
I JUST LOVE A CHALLENGE

For today:
Bake 4 loaves bread
Bake 3 doz choclate chip cookies
clean and organize basement
Inventory Cannon's Fall wardrobe(did laurens yesterday)
Organize coupons
make shopping lists
make 2 gallons tea
wash hang 1 load laundry

make beds
drain pool

Wow you are going to be a busy lady today Amanda. Good luck to you & your Dh with your challenge. You've got the right 'tude to handle it just fine.;)

Goodmorning everyone.

Nothing extra going on here...actually I feel a little down today. I saw a movie last evening-*Pay It Forward* We rented it. I cried so much and now I'm so much thinking about life...

Wow, I'm getting anxious reading how productive everyone is planning to be today! I went to a brunch at someone's today, a nice, unexpected surprise. Ds has swimming lessons at the beach and dd has her class in the evening. I REALLY need to clean house, exercise,pay bills, and make some appointments. Will I accomplish anything? Maybe I should start with planning supper......argh! Here goes...sloppy joes, chips, and fruit. :D

Good morning!

Today I need to ship out a bunch of ebay auctions--which means I'm making money! :)

I also need to defrost something for dinner, balance the checkbook, pay bills and wash some rugs.

Tonight DH and I are going to an infant CPR class! That should be fun.

Good evening ladies! Today I had to work as usual, but I got to come home to a quiet house as DH is out fishing with some buddies, so it's just me and the puppy relaxing. Not too busy of an evening for me...doing a few loads of laundry, taking care of some emails, and maybe catching up on some coupon clipping. And, of course, browsing the internet for awhile. ;)
