Tonight will be "top your own pasta" night. I browned some sausage and pulled a package of cooked diced chicken breast out of the freezer. I've got alfredo sauce and red sauce, plus there will be broccoli and bread. I'm debating on steaming a spaghetti squash for myself (I feel better when I don't eat wheat, but I often end up eating it due to time and money constraints).
I'm sure they'll want something sweet later tonight, and we've got plenty of cookies and ice cream. less

They were marked $49.99, which would be a shockingly low price for that sort of thing anyway, but still a bit uncomfortable for my budget. Then it turned out that they were part of the store sale, which knocked them down to $25!
I could not find boots just like this for $25 anywhere, especially not such a good brand that will last a while too. She's be getting these under the Christmas tree. When she outgrows them, they can be passed down to the youngest girl.
I also found a lovely Japanese style teacup set for $3.50, looks brand new to me. This will also be one of her Christmas gifts, along with a tin of tea and some homemade sugar cubes. less

She posts links to free samples often, plus lots of educational freebies and free Kindle books. She also lists many of the weekly deals that are found in many of the nationally found stores, like Target, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreen's.

Last week, I basically inhaled the witty and moving and sad book Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant by cartoonist Roz Chast. It's an illustrated memoir of Chast's parents as they reached the end of their long lives and how...

I overheard a woman talking in the grocery store about Thanksgiving dinner. She said it was a family tradition to eat out on that day and she was thankful that she didn't have to cook it.
I guess that works for some folks, but to each their own! We should be thankful for being able to make ...
As I've mentioned previously, J does a large portion of the car care/maintenance/repair on our two vehicles.
Every once in a while, however, he'll come to me and say, "I'd really like to put the car in the shop for X repair."
This is the point at which I say: "Sure thing!"
