thats funny i sound like a commercial

WFD chili and baked potato
Well we have to file schedule C because of the business...so I can't file for free anywhere.....I already bought turbo tax but I have to file fed and state at the same time-and its $20 to do state....

I absolutely LOVE the pictures of your kids... absolutely adorable!

Cheryl, I'm going to have to make a childrens size snuggie, I dont have tv, so I had no idea what that was, but after seeing it, my 3 yr old would love one. Shes always wrapped in a blanket

Home schooling........ we homeschool for preschool, but have yet to think forward about school. Our 14 yr old 9th grade is currently home schooled, and is doing great

Oh ya! I didnt get my longies done, still chuggin away at them, but I did get some dying done - 5 diapers, 5 matching onesies that are going to be cut and turned into t-shirts. So, here they are...



Ok... our 14 yr old has dance in 30 minutes, and it takes me 35 to drive there........... will be back later
Very cute dye jobs.

THe kids watch all educational TV and disney or disney-type movies...except for DH's football and music videos (he watches old classic videos, prescreened, not the risque ones in front of them) and then when #1 spends the night at grandma's house, evidently they eat hotdogs and cheetos and watch infomercials LOL, thus the snuggy reference.

I think I and the kids could do without cable, we'd just watch movies on occasion and TV from the internet, but DH would never do it. But I could never unplug from internet, and there's not a cost-effective way to do high-speed internet only.
Yah, DG has the TV on most days, he cant paint without background noise and for now MH doesnt really notice it except for when there is music...she loves to dance

my sewing machine is a Viking machine of some sort...it is really neat once you can figure it out...even came with the dials to do the different shaped stitches...I will have to find out the model # when I get home...

ppl at work think I'm crafty...they were talking about buying or not buying chocolate covered strawberries and somehow I was volunteered to make some for everyone! I was like "could you give me a little more notice?! A lot needs to go on in my head before things really happen!" I want to be able to use this...I want to show it...ok, I'm dumpy today AGAIN...sorry...
When I have bobbin issues it is usually a tension thing.

My Q of the day, how much is too much for used LL fitteds? would you pay $5? $6? $7? Looking to buy, not sell

WOTB: disposable. I had to mkake sure all the dipes were washed before I leave tomorrow and I don' trust anyone here to handle CDing properly while I am gone.
I dont pay more htan 7 for mine used, usually around 5. Sorry about the sickness.

It was touch and go for six months, I had random bleeding and some minor cramps with no rythym, but it eventually went away. The periods went away entirely, it was awesome, and I was on it for eight years. I have since read many opinions that Depo is evil, but have trouble finding hard evidence why. I only went off it to conceive #1, and got pregnant right away - not that long waiting period they say you will have if you take it a long time. Went on Nuva Ring after #2, but the horrible periods came back, and new symptoms - imagine your worst night of overdrinking, and that's what it was. Took me a while to figure out that it was connected to my cycles, and at first I thought it was the Nuva Ring, so I went off it and conceived #3. After he was born, one month later horrible periods and hangover effects return. So I went back on Depo, and again had some minor issues the first six months but now am period and symptom free. And Depo does not interfere with breastfeeding. So it works great for me. But like I said, lots of people, both medical pros and regular people, do not like Depo for many reasons but it's a lifesaver for me.

Totally unrelated, but in reference to flex spending...when DH changed jobs in Dec, he had $500 left in his flex spending account and two weeks to spend it. So he went to the drugstore and stocked up on all the OTC drugs. Seriously, you should see our drug stockpile, all cold meds, Tylenol/Motrin, various creams and ointments, etc. It's crazy, but we won't have to go to the drugstore except for Rx's for a year at least.
Thanks for the info, more good stuff for my chat with the MF on Friday. Funny about the drug stockpile.

Re: B2B - Back to Basics "Why are these pink?!" Tuesday

Hi everyone...or whoever is still up. I missed out today! We were so busy, I couldn't keep up with you gals. And I'm bummed, I'm thinking of homeschooling the girls and would have loved to chat. Bummer. I'm going to bookmark all of the links you guys posted and maybe buy that book mommyscott mentioned. Anyway... goodnight to everyone that's going to bed. I'm still going to be here for a little while...
