Dd is talking about switching her room to more of a guest room this summer and then someone else can sleep in it next year. I am trying to figure out where to put college kid stuff for the summer.
I came home from work at 1230, a little past midnight, and then made myself stay up a few more hours, got kids to school and work, then slept until noon, so I am a little more on schedule for night shift tonight. I am drinking my morning coffee now, at 3 pm! I will have the girls here tonight. I had bought a bunch of groceries at Whole Foods on Wed, we are trying a new brand of veggie burgers tonight, and I have frozen onion rings. Then I had gone and bought food for college kids with dd the next day, and a few more things for home, so spent $178 plus $114 on food this week. I did put some coffee, soap, shampoo, and shower gel downstairs, things we always need. I hadn't spent much this month, so... less

for my spring/summer, I need to do some mending! The socks are getting thin and holey, a couple of shirts have loose buttons, and one pair of jeans has an issue that I could fix pretty easily. I could use new "foundation garments" for the upcoming season but other than that, I think I have plenty of clothes that are appropriate. less

Dear Steve, My wife and I are new to the area and wondering if we should jump right in and buy a house or rent. I hate to rent because I think we are throwing our money away. What do you think? David
Dear David, I can certainly understand the ide...
Easter isn't the most expensive holiday, and it's colored with more family and religious tones than some, but even so, it can become quite expensive if you cave in to the huge (hollow) chocolate rabbits and the live chicks (what do you do with them after Easter?) and the idea that it's another day f...
