Saturday March 14

Well, Well, Well...I stayed up until just after 1 am last night working through my email. I got it down to 600 in my inbox (currently back up to 829)
I didn't get out of bed until 9:30 this morning, and that was because my ex husband called from prison. I asked him how he got money for phone calls. He told me he crocheted a blanket, then latch hooked a Kansas City Chiefs helmut and the word Chiefs on it and sold it for big bucks. First he used some of the money to buy more yarn then the phone card. It's a crying shame that he sells more crafts in prison than I sell from home!! He sells things all the time. He really enjoys crocheting very large stuffed Winnie the Pooh animals.

I posted another Budget meal on gather last night. Today I will be doing my weekly mail call post and probably another budget meal. Budget Supper 3/13/09

Jasmine finished her Anime lapbook yesterday so her lapbooks lens is one that I got updated on squidoo yesterday. Jasmine's Lapbooks
Today I will be starting a new lens...part 2 of our Unschooling Journey.

Since my tv went out I am watching my shows upstairs. I don't watch all that many shows, but it will be good for awhile. Watching 2 shows yesterday I got all the rest of my coupons cut and in to my box as well as got an almost 6 lb ham cut into cubes and divided into bags for the freezer. My aunt is getting a new tv and giving us the old one, so that will solve our problem until my son is able to take a look at mine. I'm thinking it's something simple inside such as a blown fuse. God works things out for us in mysterious ways.

I'm going to head out...almost noon and I still need to get my bath for the day! Have an awesome Saturday! I hope you are seeing some spring time weather. Today's high here is supposed to be 50 and it's 41 right now.

Friday March 13

Oh oh, Friday the 13th. I'm not superstitious, it's going to be a great day! I did wake up and go outside to see all the cars covered with snow. I guess the ground was warm enough to melt it.
I also did not get out of bed until just after 9:30. Here's my story, and I'm sticking to it! Around 4:30 am, somehow 3 of my grandkids came down here and got in bed with me. Araya was crying and crying about someone had poked her in the finger with a stick. Was she dreaming? I don't know. Before long they had found a slinky and they were laughing playing with it. Finally after 6 am we all went back to sleep. I felt like I was a kid again and in the middle of some slumber party. There you go, my excuse for sleeping in this morning.

I did get in some grocery shopping and posted it along with a photo to gather. Grocery Shopping 3/9/09

I also have started where I am going to post our budget suppers. I did the first one last night. Budget Supper 3/9/09
Tonight I am trying a breakfast casserole recipe that I got from gather so that will be tonight's post.

I again updated 2 squidoo lenses. One was the one I built on Fat Albert. I was going to add a featured lenses module only to find in search that I am the only one that's made a Fat Albert lens. It's such a fun one, I hope you will check it out. Fat Albert
Today I will cover Jasmine's Anime lapbook and get photos, so her lapbook lens will be one that gets updated today.

I got my first 2 coupon choo choo train group coupon trains in the mail today. I need to finish cutting all my coupons today and get these 2 trains back in the mail. I'm excited to be a part of the group and have a chance at some different coupons from around the US. The group has a 3 month probationary period where you can only be on up to 3 trains for that time, but watch out once my 3 months is over!

I guess I better get to my work both on the computer and around the house. Have an awesome start to your weekend!

Thursday March 12

Good Morning. Once again a cold day. They say today's high is to be 38, but it never made the 36 yesterday.
Today I have to take my mom to the dr. this afternoon and this evening is church council meeting. My grocery shopping will definitely be tomorrow and not today. I did get more of my coupons ready, but will spend today getting the rest ready.
This is why is pays to keep the coupons organized, then you are ready when the sales come to easily find what you need.

I joined a cool group on gather yesterday called Graphics and Generic comments. Anyone who joins agrees to have either or. I love doing the cut and paste graphic comments. Here's one I saved this morning to use in the group.

Joanne's Glitter Comments
Joanne's Layouts!

I'm still updating squidoo lenses. Maybe I'm going about it the wrong way, but just doing small updates here and there to keep them fresh instead of doing all that I want to do to each one all at one time. One that I updated yesterday is the one I made on traffic exchanges. Traffic Galore I'm doing Easyhits4u most all day now. It seems to give the best traffic and pays .30 for every 1,000 sites you surf with payout at just $3. I've been paid lots through them over the years.

Since once again I slept way past the time I wanted to I better get down to business on this thing. Thankfully I did enough housework yesterday that all I have to do today is the basic stuff.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Wednesday March 10

Good Afternoon! I am late getting this posted today. I've been back and forth between the computer and cleaning. I am feeling like I am actually getting somewhere on the cleaning, but have a long ways to go to be happy for the day with it.
It went and got COLD here. Yesterday it never got above freezing, today's high is supposed to be 36, but right now it's still just 19. BBRRRRRR!! At least the cleaning is keeping me warmed up with the moving down here in this basement.

I won't do go my grocery shopping today, and possibly not until Friday. For one thing, I am far from having my coupons prepared. For another, a kind follower on twitter has offered to print the ones I need from smartsource and mail them to me. For some reason I just can't print the smartsource coupons. And for a 3rd reason...maybe it will possibly be warmer on Friday?

Guess I better get that load of laundry going and then move on to other things online.

Happy Hump Day to all!

Tuesday March 10

Good Morning!
I guess it's a good thing it's spring break week for us to get used to the time change. Once again I slept late. Not at last as yesterday, as yesterday I was stil in bed at this time. It's a busier day today with taking my mom to the dr. this afternoon and we have our bowling league this evening. I really, really, really need to clean house! I spent a long time shopping at Walgreens yesterday afternoon, then we went to my Aunt's house for awhile after that. Once home, I took a nap before supper!

Here is the gather post I did, including a photo, of my Walgreens shopping. Walgreens Shopping Trip 3/9/09

I had all my coupons cut, but while at my aunts I got about 8 weeks worth on inserts. That's great though, just means my coupons will never be caught up LOL I have the sales list for our grocery store that starts tomorrow. Just another thing I want to get done today is to have my shopping list made out with matching coupons. I'm thinking I may need to wait and shop on Thursday to give myself more time to get that totally organized. It's a lot of time and work, but well worth it.

I've been getting little updates done on my squidoo lenses. I have little things to do on all of them, which is great as that keeps them fresh. One that I got done was my Jerky Direct lens. Jerky Direct Business Opportunity I added notice to come take the free tour with no obligation. I hope you will come take the tour and see what the business is all about. I really enjoy it!

I need to run upstairs and get a roast in the crockpot for supper and get my bath. Then, come back down here and see what I can accomplish online, with my coupons and with my cleaning down here. Wish me luck...or say a prayer for strength to get done what is needed.

Have a great Tuesday!

Spring Break Week

Good Morning! It's spring break week here. I'm not starting it out well either! I didn't crawl out of bed until 9:30 this morning. What a waste to the day.

I spent a lot of yesterday in twitter. I found loads of interesting coupon articles and such while I got all my coupons cut out. Today I want to get my coupons organized into my notebook. That in itself is quite the task. I also need to clean house today before the mess drives me insane. It doesn't pay to take days off of the regular cleaning tasks.
I am also wanting to get my file started from the Sidetracked Home Executives book. (think I can do it all?) This is in addition to all my paid to clicks, gathering, and updating on squidoo.

I'm real tempted to go ahead and do my Walgreen's shopping today since my mom has Avon to deliver right by there anyway. There are loads of good deals to get this week, plus I still need to buy my rebate items for the month. It's a long drive across town in my van with the rod going out is the scary part, but if I drive myself instead of having Steve take me before bowling then I can spend more time shopping.

I guess since it's after 11 am already I better get things started around here. Have a great Monday!

Marsha's Sunday "Musings"

I woke up at 9, which would have been 8

But even that was kind of late.

Hey! I'm a poet

and I didn't even know it

I read this last night in the Lutheran Digest and thought it was cute, so true, and probably a much needed morning prayer for us all:

Morning Prayer

So far today, God, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, haven't lost my temper, haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or over-indulgent. I'm really glad about that.

But in a few minutes God, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on I'm probably going to need a lot more help.

Thank you. In Jesus' name, Amen

In other news....we had tornadoes touch down only 4 miles from our house yesterday evening. That was pretty scary. We were all outside on the porch and in the yard when the man across the street came out and yelled across that tornadoes were heading our way in 5 to 7 minutes. Oh wow! One hit just south of us and the other east of us, but it was pretty scary all the same.

I got a lot of things done yesterday. I got the rest of my new things (incense) listed on blujay. I did my group work here on gather. I'm attempting to go through my email and get rid of it backwards. I got up to February 28. I hope to clear the box today and start fresh and try to figure out how to keep up with all that comes in in a day. I'm in the process of making my business bookmarks. I had run out. I put one in every order that I send out. I had to remake the file since I lost the original file in my computer when it crashed.

My plans today include finishing up what is above, getting my coupons cut out and doing some grocery shopping. Hopefully also to get my living area here in the basement pretty well cleaned up too. It's spring break this week, which is great. It means I don't have to hurry to bed, or set my alarm to get up and make sure Allen is up and getting ready for school. On the down quiet time while three of the grandkids are at school.

The kittens are a week old today and their eyes are opening. I need to get more pictures. It's sure going to be hard to give them away when it's time. We've not had an orange cat in a long time. I especially like the one that is white with the orange spots.

Well, better get busy on all my projects, and my group work. Have a great day my friends!
