  • Re: Thrifty Tuesday $$$$$ Stretching

    Happy early birthday Tracy and your DD too! Beautiful here, 68 and sunny. Mild. BUT...work has not yet shut off the heat (radiator heat) and drained the pipes. So my office is...85 degrees. Yep, I have a thermometer. Cooler on ground floors. I'm up 6 floors in the Capitol so warmer. I put my thermometer on the radiator and it went up to 92! ...

  • Re: Made in America? Not!

    It's hard and when I'm busy (well, when am I not?) it's hard to check food labels. I prefer local and try my best to feed my family locally sourced foods. We are lucky with a variety of good local sources for dairy, meat, produce (seasonal) and baked goods. Our small grocer down the street carries many local items and the price is ...

  • Re: Thankful Thursday April 17th $$$$$$$$$$$ Stretching

    Late in the day post, busy at work but no money out! Retired, I'm so happy you had a good morning with your daddy. I'm glad he knows someone, that has made a huge difference for my dad's move to assisted living. It's a small place and he has lived here most of his life (all his adult life) so he really knows almost every single ...

  • Re: Easter Afternoon

    We are doing brunch in the morning, then heading to our later church service. Easier on my dad to not have to get up and moving so early. Then I will drive him back home (3 hours round trip) and be back to my family in time for evening dinner of leftovers, etc. The kids have an Easter Egg hunt with my inlaws and I may miss it depending ...

  • Re: To Tell or Not To Tell...?

    I like the advice in the very first original post. I think we do that for the most part. Only our immediate family knows our big financial picture, our our "go up" goals. We don't share with others, even close friends. Maybe just general ideas like "we'd love to pay off our mortgage before the kids graduate from high ...

DH and I have date night tonight, kids going to grandma/grandpas. Tomorrow DS soccer, groceries and hopefully a run. Sunday, we have dinner plans ...

  • Re: Thankful Thursday $$$$$$$$$$$$$ Stretching April 3rd

    Rainy here, but needed moisture. Brought my breakfast and lunch to work. Dinner tonight: chicken thighs either in the oven or on the grill, will depend on weather. I have some sweet potatoes and corn to go with it. I'm caught up on laundry, sort of! It never ends! But did 4 baskets last night so everyone at least has clothes and we have ...

  • Re: how often do you go to the movies?

    I think it cycles. DH and I used to go quite often on movie dates, before kids. Then nothing for several years. Now that the kids are older, we take them to movies as a special treat. We've seen the Lego movie and Frozen (both matinees and at least one kiddo had a movie gift card). DH and I haven't been to a movie together in years. Once ...
