Day 425 and home sweet home

I am home safely (albeit very tired!). My friend and I had a wonderful time, the training was great and re-energized me. Tom and I have been sitting on the couch relaxing and watching TV since I got home and I"m headed to bed soon. Hope everyone else enjoyed this lovely day!

Day 424 and on the road again

I love that song: "On the road again, I can't wait to get on the road again. The life I love is making music with my friends..." LOL. Not that I can make any kind of music besides turning the radio on. But ya know...LOL

Anyway, I'm headed out this evening after all my kids leave to meet my friend. Then we're heading to OKC to spend the night and attend a child care conference tomorrow. I'm looking so forward to the break and getting away with a friend and so relieved the weather didn't mess us up!

It will not be exactly a frugal weekend, but we are taking our own pop (Diet Dr. Pepper) so we don't have to buy it out of a pop machine. WOOHOO!

Hope everyone has a great weekend. If possible, I will post when I get home tomorrow night, otherwise, I"ll be back on Sunday!

Day 423 and homework headache

I have a killer headache today and I am trying to finish the last of my homework before I go out of town tomorrow night. I have a meeting tonight so I really need to be mostly done this afternoon. My goal update will have to wait. I plan to try and post tomorrow, but if I do not, I'll be back Sunday!

Day 422 and I'm dreaming of Easter eggs

So last night at our club meeting we kicked off the insanity that is known as our annual Easter egg hunt. LOL. Seriously, we started stuffing eggs for the community wide Easter egg hunt. The last few years, we have done over 4,000 eggs. That is a lot of eggs. I think we're getting faster though, last night we stuffed almost 2000! It is really a lot of fun to sit there and stuff eggs and visit with my friends. I'm just glad that Easter only comes once a year!

We started an envelope for Tom's car repair. It's up to $130. That has kind of slowed down the EF progress though, it has stalled out at $240. But there has not been much put in it the last couple of weeks with the trips to Granite and OKC, so hopefully we can get back on track with that. Plus I will get my REWARD check soon and I can put some of it in both envelopes to give them a little bit of a boost.

Tomorrow I"ll try to do an update on how my 2009 goals are doing.

Day 421 and weather changes, full moon, and the time change

Well, my goodness. The children have definitely all lost their minds. Let's just say it was a challenging morning. Which of course is my nice way of saying that it was the morning from hell. Yikes!

My first session classes wrap up this week. I plan to have all my assignments turned in by Friday when I go out of town. I'm going to OKC with a friend for a child care conference. We're going to spend the night Friday night and attend the conference on Saturday. I am so excited to be getting away to do something fun. My new classes start up on Monday (no such thing as a spring break in these classes).

Day 420 and staring another Financial Peace University Class

I do not think I have mentioned that the church is doing another Financial Peace University class, starting next Sunday night. Tom & I are going to go through it again. I figure we'll keep going till we get it right. HA! Maybe this time we can even get past and stay past Step # 1 (get $1000 in a baby emergency fund). LOL.

Time change does crazy things to the kids and so it was a very long day and I am very tired. I want to get a little homework done before I crash into bed so that's all for tonight!

Day 419 and Sprung Forward

So did everyone get sprung forward last night? Ugh. Personally, I wish they would just leave the time alone, but it's here anyway. So...might as well accept it and be happy about it. What's positive about it? Well, the evenings will be longer. I enjoy the longer evenings with sunlight. It is kind of depressing to have it getting dark as soon almost as I finish working for the day. Today is the only day in the year that we can actually say that there just aren't enough hours in the day. LOL!

Hope everyone has had a nice weekend. I"m on my way back to my homework!
