Checked off…

Yesterday I managed to check off two big things on my to do list.  I got the taxes done for my mom and sister as well as the paperwork for my uncle.  Last night I finished writing the rough draft of Wayfarer 7. This morning I promptly rewrote the ending as it felt bad and … Continue reading Checked off…


My life is all about juggling the different aspects of it.  I'm working on a story that is pounding in my head and wanting out.  I have 11,000 plus words done in it already.  I'm also working on holiday gifts of which I have about thirty to make.  Thursdays are my early day to leave.  I … Continue reading Scheduling…

Coupons, Crocheting, and Book Sales

Ken did the grocery shopping this morning and saved over $9.  We went through yesterday and made the list partially based on the coupons I had.  Every little bit helps when it comes to the budget.  Today I have to get envelopes ready for the people I’ve clipped coupons for and get them out in … Continue reading Coupons, Crocheting, and Book Sales


With the new Roku, I just watched all the episodes of Extreme Couponing.  It is interesting to see the how people save money obsessively.  There are definitely some good ideas on using coupons.  I guess I was inspired after Ken told me we couldn’t do stuff like that.  I said I don’t have the time … Continue reading Coupons


I have become obsessed with coupons lately.  When I know I’m going to buy a particular product then I go to Google, type in the name, add the word coupon and see what is out there.  Vicki does most of our shopping and she has become an expert.  In two shopping trips she saved us … Continue reading Coupons
