I was distressed to see that all the people in the waiting room except one, including 4 kids, had smartphones. I wish they could get some education on priorities and thought of how much so many are in real need...
Harvested several baskets of pole and fillet beans, some zucchini, cooked froze them. Also took everything out of two long cupboard shelves and washed tthem and put it back so maybe I can actually find things in there for once.
Astonished to see that Dannon plain joghurt, which is my favourite, has gone from $3 to $3.69. End of getting that for now.
It is getting colder much too soon here. I want the good heat of summer some more. Forecast is for lots of rain and an early cold spell
Eyrehead, you're not belly-aching. It has been touch-and-go for you for a time now, all Level 1 issues (food, lodging, health). Try to put it in the closet for a bit. You're exhausted, i think. i know I am when I feel as if I can't go on.

My two oldest will be home some, but I will have some free time aside from working and one volunteer gig. I would like to go to a movie with my sister and daughter, and I would like to relax a bit. I have some library books. What are your favorite things to do when you have some free time? Also, I need a movie suggestion.

Then you can use your money that you save to rent a hotel when your kids visit. I don't know if you can sign a lease for more than your income. If you could get rid of some of your financial stress, and have money for food and utilities, it seems like it would be a lot easier.

Looks terrible and makes fire fuel. The other one (don't remember the name) kills the greenery on the pines, but the mature trees eventually recover. Immature trees die off.
If you're planning a backyard barbeque, a summer shower, or you just want to munch on some veggies and dip, we found a delicious looking recipe from our friends over at Frugal and Fun Mom. She has created a wonderful dip with Bacon and Onions that is pefect for dipping veggies for a snack or...
This past Saturday morning, I stopped by our local Marsh store on the way home from the gym to pick up some salad fixings for a potluck we were going to that afternoon.

If you have so much as bought a candy bar or a gallon of milk, you know that food prices are rising. Since they're not included in inflation indices, those prices "don't count" in your budget, at least according to government calculations.
