(And didn’t know you wanted to know!) But first, what have I been doing lately?  Potty training.  My daughter is 26-months-old and we decided it was time.  It has gone…up and down.  The first week was not going well, so I was ready to quit, but the…

Moving from a “cheap” area in Georgia to a “cheap” area in Maryland is expensive.  We bought the cheapest home in an affluent area and we’re working hard to tighten up our budget and restock the reserves.  To that end, I’ve been trolling Craigslist and…

We moved!  It’s been an incredibly long process after nearly a year of waiting to hear “Go!”  But we’ve made it and we’re just trying to get comfortable in our new home, which has actually been damn near impossible for a number of reasons.  First, our new…

I’m not sure when or where I heard about modern cloth diapers.  I remember when I was growing up my Mom always used old cloth diapers for cleaning, but they were just large pieces of thick fabric and I didn’t quite understand why my Mom called them…

How much do I love shopping at Costco?  So much so that I had to institute a Costco rationing to stop us going there every week and spending money on things we don’t need purely because they’re ‘cheap’ at the warehouse store.  We used to go to Costco and…

I always seem to have bananas turning brown in my kitchen, which often end up frozen to be used another day.  I really can’t be bothered to make banana soft-serve, so they remain in the freezer until they’re taking up too much space (that’s how many…
