Hi all sweet scrappers. Hope all is going well. Things are swimming along smoothly. I can't wait for summer vacation. For many reasons. Getting to have my babies (who drive my bananas) home with me. I cannot believe next year I will have a kidlet in 3rd grade and one in kindy. Wahhhhhh. I am also looking forward to making our own schedule. The "have tos" are getting to me a bit. The idea of camping, swimming, trips to the library, zoo and Marine World, bowling (the bowling alley gave all kiddos k-8 at our school a pass for one free game plus free shoe rental EVERY day of summer break. Sure wish Hayden got one though. That would be nice to take them to a lot.), bbqs, some fun homeschooling projects, etc etc. ahhhhhh. just a while longer.
Though I am not looking forward to the wildly crazy coming weeks. Birthday parties, hubby out of town, end of baseball plus two end of season parties, three end of year school parties (yes.....chase's school is having two), hayden's graduation, getting the person taking my place on the preschool's board up to speed, three upcoming Mom night outs (oh poor me lol), helping get my aunt's retirement party set up, etc etc etc. ahhhhh. fun fun fun.

I haven't been to the gym for almost two weeks!?!?! I was busy for a few days and then I got what I think was the flu. I am still not all the way recovered from that. I really can't wait to get back into the gym though. I was seeing real progress (almost 10 lbs lost and inches off everywhere) and it sure put me in a better mood. My patience was a lot better too ;) so. yeah. hopefully next week I will be able to go back at it!

So. That is that.

In my scrapping life....been working on some layouts. Making some fun layouts. And some challenges.

My favorite money-saving site is The Grocery Game at www.thegrocerygame.com

It's not free - but the cost is minimal and it saves you lots more money than it costs! What they do is link up sales at your local grocery stores or at chain drug stores with coupons available from your Sunday paper and tell you when it's a good deal or a great deal.

You just log in to the site, view your list, check off what you'd like to buy, print it off, match up your coupons and go to the store. Saves so much time over trying to match up coupons yourself.

I believe you can do a trial month for just $1 - give it a try!

The Rose Family said...

Thanks for your templates! They were very fun to play with! I used freecycle quite a bit to get rid of all my clutter and stuff we don't use anymore. It's a place where you give things away for free and people come and take your things for free. Anyway - here is a link to search your local area to see if any are around you. http://www.freecycle.org/

Have fun!

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
