  1. Prayers for a speedy recovery!!

  2. My DH is wonderful about doing laundry, I don't even have to touch it and its daying. Now the dishwasher he will load and unload it but only if the sink is fully. The crocks he ALWAYS leaves in the sink. I actually left it once for DAYS and he never touched it. Finally I got fed up and did it myself. So him washing it ya that would be wishful thinking. Dishes are not his thing, well neither are bathrooms but I just have learned to deal with it. I was thinking I will have to get another one and will start looking. I don't get to second hand stores to often as the ones in my town close befor
  3. We do have food he can prepare for himself. There is usually left overs also. The food is usually easy stuff like soap or pasta dishes like spaghetti. He just choosers not to make the stuff. I think I am going to try some crock pot meals. I just can't do them 2 days in a row as most mornings I am rushing in and then back out to get to work on time so no time to clean the pot before I fill it again. I will have to see how it goes.
  4. Clever you are correct. When I am home I usually figure out what to eat for each of us. I left his as free days as when I ask him what he wants his answer is "I don't know". Then in the past I use to write up a whole week menu and when I worked he would still go out and not eat what was on the menu. Thinking I will bring back the menu idea and point out that he needs to follow it just like I do.
  5. Well that is unless you call this weather ugly. Its been so cold here again. I know 50s isn't bad but when the nights are still in the 30s and you have frost on your windows in the Am. Baseball games have been brutal. I am a die hard mom who tries to attend all games and yes I sit out in my lawn chair freezing. We have 2 more games this week and the wind is suppose to whip and the temps the same. Then next week it will hopefully get warmer or maybe I am wishing it will be. I guess that is Minnesota living. Now the Good, I have to say just when you are over worked, under paid, stressed out,
  6. I am with you, I have changed my WOE, stopped drinking soda, no (min) sugar, more veggies, less carbs. My DH on the other hand will get donuts and candy bars at the store and eat them right in front of me. Well I am ok with that as I have will power. We actually make two different meals as he won't eat what I do and I wont eat what he does. I have talked with him about changing his WOE but he says he is fine and since he isn't overweight he has no reason to. He even had a Heart attach scare but that didn't do anything. I just wish he would listen a little bit and see what eating clean can do t
  7. The plan is working. What would you have done had you not had the BEF? You would have had to go into debt or paid bills late to go to the funeral. Everything is working perfectly. I know the feeling of 2 steps forward 1 step back. Its does get so much better and the fact that you can refill it fast is also a plus. Good job on working the plan. Sorry about your aunt.
  8. Yes Plinda I am glad I spent the time with the Dh and DS. Time goes by so fast and from learning from the other children once they leave for college you don't get much time with them. I am glad I spent the days with my DH. We are now back at it and even more gazelle cause next year I don't want to feel guilty that I went and spent that time. As for DHs medical bills. We are saving our snowball so when the bill comes in we can pay it off right away. That way we have no new debt and if we over save we will throw what is left at the next debt. Thanks everyone for the comments.
  9. So I am sure I will get a wet noodle beating for this since we are in BS2 yet but it was a much needed trip. Emotionally and physically (well not actually physically as I am exhausted 2 days later still). My state had its State Wrestling Tournament this past weekend and we went. My DS16 wrestles and so I was saving as you never know if he would make it to the tourney wrestling or not. My DS23 made it his first year and we didn't thing he would. So I figured I was going to be prepared this time. I saved a little bit for a few months a had $1000 saved just in case. Well he didn't make it, go
  10. What are your SL payments? I am wondering if you might see more traction if you pay off the 2 small ones of those instead of the CC#2.

    SB on hold

    Well due to taxes and vehicle issues our snowball throwing is on hold. We have to pay into taxes this year, both state and federal so untill we know the exact amount we are not throwing any snowballs. Then on top of that I need 2 new tires. I had some vehicle issues what were fixed back a few months. Those issues caused the tires to wear unevenly and more extinsively then they should. So before we go on any long trips we need to put 2 tires on and we are planning a trip to go see the grandson and his mother and father too of course. So untill those 2 things are done we are saving the ball. I r
  12. Yup I agree with the others, the mall is nothing but a big normal mall. I live in MN and go by the place a few times a year only been in it about 3 times. The no tax is great but not when you don't need the items anyways. Check out the pool at the hotel. Find something free to do if you need to kill time. If you do go to the mall just walk around and look at the amusment park in the middle. Sometimes they have free entertainment I believe.
  13. This past Sunday my husband drove 4 hours to go see the grandson being born. Ok he wasn't in the room but at the hospital. She was having a scheduled C-section due to the little boy being breech. It was a 6am Monday morning. I new this would be coming soon so we have set a side money for gas, food, and a hotel stay. Now I was not able to get off work and we will be going down this weekend again. My DH comes home last night and said that he only has $5 left for the week of his blow money. When asked why he stated "I had to eat". LOL I forgot to tell him he could use the debit card as I left
  14. I have never felt this way before. This program really does change your life. The past few months there have been many things that have come up that would have put in me a major stress depression. I listed them below. 1. Extra Gas and football tickets, as my son's team made it to state football. 2. Vehicle needing $500 in repairs 3. Plugged sewer drain 4. Christmas: Extra gas to go shopping, presents, and more groceries needed. 5. A baby being born X 2 6. Carbondioxide alarm going off, found out it was the alarm had went bad. Heating bill for inspection plus new alarm. But for a
  15. I can't believe its been a month since I have posted a blog so I figured I would update. We paid off 1 loan and 1 credit card in the past month. Things are moving along rather smoothly. Hate to say almost too smoothly but after Septembers murphys maybe he has left us for a few months. Nice thing is the murphys are more of a small bump in the road then a huge mountain to climb. Hubby couldn't believe it when we went over how much our snowball is if we behave ourselves and don't go off budget. November seems to be pretty much a calm month at least on the calendar it is. I have quit o

    Am I wrong?

    Thanks everyone for you comments. I am sure DH does have guilt with her. They don't have as close as a relationship has he does with the oldest 2 and even my kids. She only calls or Text him when she needs something (usually money). The other call or text him pretty much daily. So in a way I think he is trying to buy her love. She went to a great school. She graduated Pre-Med but didn't get into a Med school this fall so is trying again for next fall. She was only a bit short on 1 of the test I guess. She took a First Responder coarse this summer but that is done. She only works Part T

    Am I wrong?

    Am I wrong? My Dh and I have gotten in to our first real argument when it comes to the kids and money. I feel bad as I am not sure if I am being hard on her like he says I am. So my Step Daughter 23 asked for help with her student loan interest payment a few months ago. We have been helping every so often. Well after not really wanting to I agreed to put the $50 a month in the budget. This is divided between her mother, us, and her. So the other day she messages my Husband and says she doesn't have her amount and its due Oct 1. So what does hubby do, he asks me if we can pay $210. I d

    Small update

    Thought I would do a small update on those dang murphy's that seem to like me lately. 1. Computer is fixed $70 2. water heater part should be here today. Love our "On-Demand" heater but hate the time it takes to get parts. This part is still under warranty so as long as that fixes the problem it would be $0 just more of a problem with having to take luke warm showers OK more like chilly showers for me. 3. Vehicle goes in tomorrow finally to see what that will cost. We were trying to put it off but its not making a really loud grinding noise once in a while and with me driving 40 mi
  19. No we have not been tracking this month. That is where I am off. We are going to sit down on Sunday or Monday and do the Sept one. Maybe I will brink it with tonight to the football game, we have a hour drive. We can start it then and go over it later on Sunday.
  20. The past few weeks have just not went my way. I am some of the problem the other is murphy. So we have 3 times in the next 2 months that we will have to stay in a hotel. 1 is already complete, that was last week when we moved my daughter into the dorm. She is going to school 6 hours away and the move in times did not allow for us to do a drive up and back. Also we did that twice in June and it made for a long day and we pay for it for days later with our sore backs and knees. So we did a 2 day stay. This was all budgetted for and we actually came in $20 under. Now this did replace our
  21. Everything starts with small steps. This time it was a 2 day trip next time will be a 3 day and then 4day. Great job!!1
  22. 19 so far but there are more small ones that I really have not counted. We only have 14 left and those range from $575 to $4000. Its really going well we have about 50% paid off!
  23. That would be a wonderful Idea! LOL
  24. Its been another month of ups and downs. We paid off another Card lastnight. I tried to get my DH to push the submit button but he looked at me like I was weird. YES I am weird, I was all getty and excited about paying off the Sears card. That means our water softener, TV, and freezer are all paid for!! Ok I know they were paid for before I hit that button but now it really feels like it. This doesn't make the snowball go up by much as the Min was only $25 but it does help. Baseball has been in full swing so I have not worked at the station in 3 weeks. I did talk with the owner before

    Murphy!

    No nothing was ever discussed with College in the divorce agreement. Also we never said we would help at all with any of it. We would have to take a day off work or a few hours and then drive 30 miles to get it reduced as the ticket was in another county. Not worth the $30 we would be saving.
