That has to be hard. As for your DH's co-workers, shame on them.

Oh no, does anyone know for sure if the tests from anotherblessing.com are blue or pink dye? I *just* ordered some from there...
I would say the fence qualifies as a definate need to keep the kids and animals safe inside your yard (training children and pets to stay within the property lines doesn't work in all situations...it depends on the individual children/pets). As for furniture, eh, not so much of a need (eight yrs doesn't seem that old to me at all. However, if it is due to needing the larger bed due to co-sleeping, then go for it, but take you time searching for a good deal). I would not...
Ok, the buttered beans were gross. Oh well, live and learn. DH is a soda/sugar addict, so I made him some sweet tea, and he loved it. Much cheaper than soda. Going to make him some more when I wake up because he is already out. I had a loaf of old french bread that was hard on the outside, but soft in the very center. So, I chopped up the hardish areas into cubes, separated the soft parts of the bread, and left a hollowed out end piece. The result? I am now...

I've been hitting up the hillbilly housewife site for cheap meal ideas to try. I made the creamed tuna and peas with elbow noodles since I know DH likes tuna. At first he was reluctant to try any (because he is really picky about his food, and has only liked tuna in sandwiches). However, after giving it a try, he ate 2 bowls in one sitting because he loved it so much! The bonus was I had most of the ingrediants on hand - I just needed to pick up a can of tuna and...

Please keep us updated on how the envelope system works out for you, I wish we could switch to cash/envelopes but I buy most of our stuff and pay bills online and have to use checks for paying the farmers for the milk/eggs/meat shares so envelopes are just not practical for us. I did actually open up a couple more checking accounts though with our bank and...
Yesterday was veggie burgers, leftover soup, and pasta with tomato sauce. Today I had a veggie burger, then the plan is to have the leftover pasta the rest of the day. Snacks have been the free popcorn I get while at the movie theater I work at (though i get sick of eating it everyday, it's better than nothing). I plan on also whipping up another batch of cornbread. Tomorrow I can go grocery shopping to fill those cabinets with some much needed food.
