There are some good things that I want to share with everyone. I have my car paid off and I did get my brakes fixed thanks to Jodie paying her rent for 6 months upfront. Also, I am getting a cash settlement from my insurance minus my deductible and we are going to be paying off some of our debt. I am extremely grateful it answers a lot of our prayers.

Bill has been putting in applications online and today we hit the pavement but to no avail. We ended up missing the inaugaration because of it. There is enough coverage going on though that if I felt up to it I could catch up on it.

I also talked to Bill today about starting a spending journal and that it would be imperative for both of us to take part in it and the importance of saving every receipt. If anyone has forms,pdfs, etc. that would help in organizing the household I would appreciate it. I am also wanting penpals. I can do email penpals too but Bill is playing a LOT of Diablo 2 to keep sane and between him and the Teen I don't get much time online as I use to...if you are interested let me know. I have run out of books here (even the silly romance ones!) and De Soto does not have a library.

We are suppose to get up to 40 F tomorrow woohoo! and Friday is suppose to get up to the 50s.

Do you Bookmooch? It's a great way to swap books. I've added a LOT to my library with it.

If you want a penpal, drop me a line. I love writing letters and have had a few penpals for years... love it.
