Hope the house sells.

Sounds like a great idea repti hellen keller should be a holiday as well.

$420 for one month?!? wooww...we have gas heat and we could also use electric for heat too cus we have central air . I have not a clue how much our bills are monthly because dh takes of them but I think they are 200.

So went a little crazy at walmart last night, tanks with lace boarders are like 6 bucks, I got like every color they had and then some and socks socks socks...that place is my new addiction...I think I may buy my cleaning products from their rather than target cus that place is cheeeeeap!! love it!!!

to bad the clothes are poor quality but the diapers are cheaper there too. Still love target though.

We got the refund from Walmart and ordering #3 something again. They are tricky though, it is a gift card, not a credit to my actual checkbook.

Heard some seriously bad news today. The piano player in our show posted to fb that her grand daughter was killed yesterday. She was 6, turning 7 in two weeks. She was backed over by her 13 yo sister in a truck. Last I heard, the dad was drunk in the truck. He is in jail.

that is super sad. I would hope that the child doesn't face any consequences.


Target's stuff is the same quality as walmart. I always call that store expensive walmart lol. Only thing I typically get from there is California baby diaper cream, since it's cloth diaper safe, and things I can get free with coupons.

And that doesn't sound too bad for everything M2M. Our water bill is about 140 every three months, and gas 100 in the winter average, and electric 115 in the winter months. Garbage and sewer is on the water bill. We technically pay for garbage twice here, but that's another story. They tax us for it, AND we physically pay for it on the water bill.... anyway, I would guess that's 260 in utilities here too.

Ok, turns out I hear it was the cousin, which is better because I know the sister. The father has been arrested for negligence. I heard a rumor that the dad and cousin had been drinking, but I don't know if true or not.

Yeah, like I said it's not bad when I consider what most people pay for everything. It was just a shock.

FW, that is so sad! My best friend lost a brother that way (before she was born) only it was a neighbor and a complete accident. No one had realized the toddler had escaped the house. He ended up slowly killing himself with alcohol and drugs. They never blamed him, not even for a second and tried so hard to help him, but he just couldn't handle what had happened. I can't imagine....shivers.

Cleaned out the fridge and now it's empty lol I should do it more often buts one of my top 3 hated chores

very sad about the girl and her sister, hopefully that father will stay in jail!

The water bill is something that really floors dh. Here in the states the water bill is huge and its not even the charge of use of water, its all the other charges on the bill that dh complains about and why we are paying for that...like zoo taxes ect..??? In saudia where its desert mind you and water is precisous, the water bill he said is like 10 dollars!!! imagine that..hhmmmm

Macy's has a serving bowl set that have to go pick up tomorrow and then Daliyah gets her 4 month shots that shes 2 months late for, should be fun

Oh, I hope he gets out and no charges stick. It is really sad. And we are a small town. People have been talking in hushed whispers all day. Nobody thought the kid was out there. It was a horrible terrible accident.

Now I have to feel up our black lab to see if there is a lump on her side.

Not offended. I don't know one way or the other if he was drunk. It is just a rumor I heard. I hope it isn't true.

Went for a well check up today. I'm the picture of health. I have a colonoscopy ordered. They will let me know when. Dh is having blood work done. Oh geez. I was just informed that #8 just pooped in his pants. Brb.

I can't wait til Bastian goes poop on the toilet regularly. He's had such poop problems, there is no happy medium that I've found yet. At least he's not holding softball sized poop in there anymore (this week anyway hah).

OH, well checks. One of my claims was processed, the other is just still submitted, so we'll see how long it takes for them to mail my money. Could really use it, AND Could really use a fast forward to the 31st so at least I know I can file taxes... even getting a tax form would be nice any day now!

I'm going back to the dentist to get that tooth filed. I'm bummed that #1 wasn't invited to the scholarship competition at her college. It is tomorrow and I have even been "that parent" and written to the lady asking for her to reconsider. She told me to resend the act score and transcripts. I did that Wednesday might. I didn't hear back all day yesterday, so I sent a note this morning. If I don't hear back by dinner, I guess we aren't going. I don't expect to hear back. She should at least tell me no.

It's not very nice to leave you hanging. Good luck with the tooth.

My oldest is writing her final exam for math today.

I got my hair done yesterday, after 10 weeks, which is very long for me. I'll confess I am SO not someone that gets a haircut twice a year.

Today I'm off to bible study, paying some bills and then getting to some bookkeeping I hope.

i just got my hair trimmed this morning. i decided that while i lose weight, i would grow out my hair a bit. nothing dramatic but more like a short bob than the really short hair i have worn for years. i hate growing out so i figured that now was the time since i am so focused on changing the outside anyways. on that sorry note, i have 3 Hershey kisses and some dry sugary cereal with my lunch of lettuce tuna and cashews. tomorrow will be very disappointing to me but boy it all tasted so yummy!

Lol MIL!

I do my own hair, I don't trust anyone with it !

I got sad news. I've been trying to reach my landlady to pay rent, and haven't been able to. I convinced myself they were on vacation, even though they've always called when they are headed out of town. Today I reached her husband and he told me that as we speak she is having her 2nd surgery for a really bad staph infection. I'm so sad cause she is one of the nicest people I have ever met, genuinely nice.


On a different note FW, I have a friend who is thinking of homeschool. She also lives in Florida, do you have any links I can pass on to her?
