I got the pool project moving forward a little bit more. Unfortunately, we think one of the pumps may need to be replaced, I would like to hold off on that as long as possible. I did get a job … Continue reading
With no income to budget or bill pay with I did about 2/3 of my homework (I was also supposed to sell things but ran out of time).
The slide was about 30 miles north of us. Major event though; lots of damage and lots of casualties. Emergency crews from three counties have been working around the clock to save whoever can still be saved. Thanks for your … Continue reading
Yep – I’ve found my mom in the 1940 census, but no birth certificate info. Can’t find my dad in the 1940 census at ALL. Although I *just* found a Muster Roll for him from 1943 when he was in … Continue reading
That’s where my mom was from. It looks like I’d have to send money for them to do a search. Maybe I’ll have to do that for my mom’s birth certificate to see if it has where my grandmother was … Continue reading
historic plantation on the Mississippi River in Vacherie, LA. I need to box a few sets that remain unboxed after our last show that was rained out on the 2nd day. I am also making up 12-15 sets to replace … Continue reading
I’ve never been able to find birth *or* death information online. The only things I’ve seen is info I’d have to send money and HOPE to get the information…
That is awesome! I am proud of you for being so frugal … I have avoided looking at the emails from Joann’s and have avoided going in Hobby Lobby because I don’t have $$ to spend now. Hopefully after the … Continue reading
As you know we’ve been playing with making cards and scrapbook pages to sell for awhile. I’ve been slowly building up my inventory to do a massive upload to the site. Part of what I’ve been running into is a … Continue reading
they doubled the deductible and had to drop the dental and vision. The dental was with Smile Care type places and insurance never helped much with vision costs. My DH is going to talk to the dentist we currently use–been … Continue reading
Only 8 of us and swear the price made me want to cry. It was higher than that. We have too many assets for medicaid and not enough income for a tax credit. I was not pleased when our rate … Continue reading
We just got the booklet for DH’s health benefit options. $780 a month to cover the whole family (it’s $390 a paycheck so some months it would be more.) And that’s HMO. I know they are a smaller company so … Continue reading

till we paid the house off unless it would cost more money long term. However we only owed 3 years on the house at the start of the loan. Everyone thought we were dirt poor and WAYYyyyy to frugal in … Continue reading
Our decision making process has been a tough one this last five years and we, being the humans we are, sometimes let want get in the way of need, but for the most part we either repaired it ourselves the … Continue reading
They might not always be able to talk to the neighbors because of time. in my hood, no one is home most of the time except me and the over 70 crowd.

How about this though … does anything in the paperwork prevent you from talking to the neighbors? Sometimes they have a lot more knowledge that banks/officials don’t have. I think it’s in the neighbors’ best interest to help secure a … Continue reading
Nothing in my area has sold at auction because of this. Here in FL, it makes it easier for the bank to get the house. 1 year vs 3-4 years. Basically, the bank is trying to get their money and … Continue reading
