Repost! Somehow Part Deux posted *over* this original post, so your comments are actually over there. What a mess! Get it? Ha! I crack myself up. So I’m feeling the urge to have a little chitchat with my online pals about moolah. Budgets. Making ends meet. Bringing home the bacon, and cooking it too. Recently, I found out one of my good friends is … Continue reading Budgettabouddit!
Last time we talked about moolah, it was all about budgets. That is, having a cold, hard, system for tracking the cold, hard cash that comes into your house and having a plan for how that cash will exit your house as well (though hopefully not all of it will be leaving….). Let me get all Dave Ramsey up in your biz now: Our … Continue reading Budgettabouddit! Part Deux: Expenses

It’s one of my basic starting points for many of … Continue reading What an AstroBright Idea!
I found a yummy recipe for a “Dulce de Leche Banana Cream Pie” in Taste of Home magazine and it was so good, I’m going to share it with you all – with some modifications. See… once I made it, I realized it could be simpler than the recipe stated. Semi-homemade, if you will. (I hope Sandra Lee doesn’t have a copyright on that phrase…does … Continue reading Easier Dulce de Leche Banana Cream Pie
My gosh it’s been a busy couple of weeks. Ready for the lowdown? A week or so ago, Nick’s company went out of business, and everyone lost their jobs. Luckily, he found a new job very quickly, though he hasn’t started yet. We refinanced our mortgage. Avery turned 8 months old. We had two out-of-town weekends in a row. And as usual, I’m busy busy … Continue reading It’s Wednesday already?
