    Blog entries dedicated to living frugally, saving some cash, simplifying life

    1. Another Excuse to work more . . .

      This past week was a doozy for us, dh has been working really late hours (until nearly midnight a couple of those nights), oldest ds has also been working quite late - in fact the managers at the restaurant decided he was ready to "Close" for them. Needless to say, I was less than impressed with having to stay up until nearly 2 in the morning just ...

      It's amazing how fast time flies when you live in an area you love. When we were in the midwest, a day was like a year, a year an eternity that dragged by like turtles stampeding through cold peanut butter.
