Back to School Sales!

July 24, 2010

Comments Off on Back to School Sales!

It’s almost time for the Back-to-School sales. I’m starting to see spiral notebooks, crayons, and packages of lines paper planted at the aisle ends in my grocery store. Sheesh, it’s still JULY, isn’t it? But actually, I can always use that kind of stuff (and we do school during the summer, anyway), so I usually […]

Blaaaaaahhhhh…

I’ve been installing sheetrock this week. On the ceilings, as well as the walls. I finally collapsed last night. I thought the insulation installation was exhausting! I did this kind of stuff in the living room a few years ago, and even though the work was hard, I don’t remember being so bushed… what happened?! […]

…borrow something from someone who does. 😀 I got this in my email today. :rofl: I liked it enough to pass along. HAHA!!! NEW ORLEANS–Critics were silenced today after President Barack Obama’s fifth visit to the Gulf Coast vastly improved the devastated region. While at the site of the worst oil spill in U.S. history, […]

Get Blinded!

Comments Off on Get Blinded!

I almost fainted from sticker shock when I perused my local Big Box home improvement stores prices on window blinds. I went shopping for awnings, but didn’t find anything at all, unfortunately. It must have been a “V8” moment, because I realized I could find something comparable (and, no doubt, a lot cheaper) online. This […]

I’m too durn pooped to much blogging these days. I can’t even put two thoughts together this morning. The house renovation has me exhausted lately. We installed the insulation and vapor barrier in 90+ degree heat, and I guess it took the wind out of my sails… The Hubs says I should take a day […]

More Than Just “Mom”

Comments Off on More Than Just “Mom”

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ashworth College. All opinions are 100% mine. When you’re a young mom, you kinda get sucked into motherhood, BIG time. I know I did. It becomes your life; you’re entire identity becomes wrapped up in being “MOM.” It was fun for, like, six or […]

So Sick of the Mel Gibson Hype…

I guess the media has exhausted the coverage of the BP oil spill (finally) and LeBron James (good Lord, FINALLY). But now the drivel spewed out into our faces is the latest play-by-play of Mel Gibson and Wife #2. The whole thing is just a farce. Now, I like Mel Gibson movies. I love The […]

Love shoes? I’ve got some good news for you– it’s an auction website for shoes. It’s pretty neat! You can buy AND sell shoes here. The listing fee is a flat $1.00. It’s called If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit. I think it’s relatively new. I got a real kick out of sifting through some of […]

WFW: Enjoy the Good of the Labor

July 14, 2010

Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage. As for every man to whom God […]

I missed it. 🙁 A SUPER SUPER DUPER deal on a laptop. I got the notification in an email (if you don’t get their emails, you should– they showcase the most incredible deals) about an HP laptop with a dual-core processor, 80GB hard drive, and XP Pro, for $299 with shipping! Of course, it’s factory […]
