Hopefully, it was the last snowstorm! The strawberries are in bloom and my lilies are coming up. We have gotten snow for Memorial Day out here but i'm oping we won't get that agin for a very long time!!
Tonight is leftovers- BBQ chicken. If DS#2 wants pizza, i'll throw one in the oven.
I will be doing some major clean up this week since DS#1 will be home. GOOD. I've been waiting to do that. I threw out some things yeaterday (papers, etc) but really want to clean this house. The kids are getting older but collect more stuff- go figure.
Have a great day to everyone less

We wanted one that uses regular light bulbs not the ones with candelabra bases. Unfortunately being around the crowds we were in ended in me getting sick. I have slept most of the time since we got home. I have managed to get the laundry done and the suitcase unpacked. I was/am certainly glad to get ack to my own bed.

I think sunlight kills funk and stank. My handy thrift store wire drying rack is holding up well to the elements. I do bring it inside when not in use. I found the sticker on it...6$ 2 or 3 years ago. So it's definitely paid for itself. Eventually I'd like a proper clothes line but perhaps build the house FIRST...or not.

This sounds a little old fashioned, but a family is a strategic endeavor. Being frugal must always be partnered with balance in life, and the thought that frugality adds to the quality of life. If not, frugality becomes just stinginess. T...
It used to be that finding work to do at home, especially on the internet, was a dangerous thing to do. So many scams and pennies per hour "jobs" were prevalent that the real jobs were like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack.
While there certainly are scams and underpaid work available, es...
I know that I tend to harp on debt. That's because I've seen debt hurt so many people. People who didn't get to live the lives they had planned because they were always playing catch-up financially.
So it won't surprise you that an article from Bloomberg caught my eye. The theme of the arti...
