I couldn't read and not post. Have you called one of the free credit services for advice? If you have mortgages that are almost paid off - can you refinance?
[QUOTE=TiredX2;12218422]Now *that* I find odd. My dd's words were a combination of words that had to do with their lessons and words that kids in the class encountered during the week that had intrigued them. It was fascinating to see how excited they became about spelling and vocabulary development when they were spelling a word that a classmate contributed
looks fine to me - but my daughter's first grade class spelled metamorphosis, proboscis, compartmentalize and renegade...
I'm having one of those weeks where life is good - I went to the gym, finished two stories before they were due, hosted dinner three night in a row (the food rocked), got a couple of awesome assignments, got my first book back from the publisher: saw a couple of old friends, visited my family, talked to Cathy Jones (this reference will only be meaningful to Canadians - but yes, that Cathy Jones), planned three great trips, Dh and I are coming up on our 18th anniversary and...

I co-wrote a book last winter and it just arrived. Yay!
When I first decided to be a writer, my husband bought me gorgeous pen and a moleskin notebook. I've since been through 3 moleskins and have a little one that fits in my purse. I also have a waterproof notebook and a little spiral one I bought when I thought I forgot my notebook on a trip. Currently I have four on the go and never know which set of notes are in which book. And despite all these books, they are almost always heaped around my desk - and not with me when I'm...
