Well this morning Super Walmert wasn't big enough for me and DH! He decided that he knew what I was needing better than I did several times. I wisely walked away before the screaming match started. He didn't get enough sleep--doesn't want to "waste" his off time. I talked him into napping after feeding him so he has had a change of attitude.
I washed two of the dog beds this morning and the washer got out of balance and walked sideways into the dryer. We got it straightened back out and now I have 2 more to get laundered. The poodles hate it when I wash the dog smell out but they were really stinky..
I need to balance the checkbook with the statement and make sure the June budget is in place like we need. But that's about it for our chores today. I got a lot done yesterday, some with DH's help/hindrance and have a few things lined up for tomorrow.
I have pork chops thawed and ... less

Our cushion in the checking account got wiped out the first of the month when DH has a medical issue, but it will get built back up.

Haven't spent any money yet this weekend aside from a thanksgiving offering we made at church today for our son's safe arrival. Took my brother and fiancée to church with us and my parents went to another church that my mother is familiar with.
My mother has been cooking all our meals and she brought a bunch of food with her special for the toddler so it's been sort of nice not having to worry about feeding DS1. He's going through a growth spurt and eating everything in sight, which is amusing because he usually eats like a bird.
Oh I forgot we do have more money going out today - our newborn photos are happening this afternoon. Our photographer had to reschedule from the other day.
Roads were backed up when we were driving home from church - hope everyone stays safe out there! less

Yesterday dh and I drove over to NH for my aunts memorial service. Met family I had never met before. On the way home we stopped at a place called queechee gorge. Went into gift shop, bought nothing. Just 15 minutes of walking led to much pain so we just drove home. One of dh friends came over right after we got home with his wife. He needed to help dh with his bees. They stayed for about an hour and it was a nice visit.
Today I have been working in the kitchen. Got a steak marinating in a carne asada marinade I put together. That will be for tomorrow. I made Ds a chicken with couscous, garlic, mushrooms and onions casserole. He loves it and its so simple. I made chocolate chip cookies. It's my treat day. I'm cutting most sugar from my diet and rewarding myself. Emptied out the fridge, froze some turkey I cooked this week for future lunch meat. I'm seeing I can do quite a few... less

Hello to all my Frugal Friends!
According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics nearly 19% of people 65 or older are still in the work force. The percentage has been rising since the 1980s and has been very much on the increase since 2000. And the last time the ratio was that high was ba...

Today I got a call from the credit union telling me my house mortgage is now paid out.
They then asked me if I wanted to de-register the mortgage - at a $75.00 fee, or leave it as it is, in case I needed money for a reno...
