I've been struggling with the budget at home lately. We have a lot of work that needs to be done on the house we are currently in, and none it will be cheap! We are blessed to have all we have, but the things we are facing require us to SAVE! Keeping that in mind, … Continue reading Thanksgiving Fresh!
The blog has not had much TLC over the last month or so. I can tell you guys about all the wonderful things I've been up to. But, the reality is that all those wonderful tales of time not being on my side; taking care of my home; my job consuming my life; etc. are … Continue reading Blessings and Blues
