The Mitsubishi, the one that has gotten me through school, is on it's last leg. Today the transmission started to fail, it was like getting kicked in the rear at 30-35 mph (repeatedly), and peeling out to get it going in the forward direction.

It's time like these that the house for sale is an albatross around our necks, but we are also grateful to have family willing to let us use their car until we get our Pile O'Junk running again. We did a lot of praying that the car would get me through school, and it did. Plus a year.

 Red Ant called it the "itsy fishy" when he was younger, and I'll be ready to scrap it when the time comes or ram that ding dong that doesn't know how to merge. Either one.

Food Storage & Holidays

Just a friendly reminder, in these troubled times, that this is an excellent time to stock up on prepping supplies for the family. Historically, these are the low price points for turkeys, ham, sugar, baking supplies, and some canned goods.

A turkey or two in the freezer for a January and February feast can help stretch the dinner dollar. Combine that with a spiral cut ham (x3), and you've got about half your protein needs for the winter months, as well as some excellent sandwiches to brown bag.

Look at those local ads, and catch you some bargains to stretch your food dollar.

Some goods prices that I've seen or stocked up on:

Spiral cut hams
Sweet potatoes (fresh and canned)
Canned pumpkin (an excellent source of vitamins)
Cranberries (canned and fresh)
Turkey (frozen)
Canned green beans
Canned Corn
Cream of [chicken, mushroom,etc...] canned soups

Veteran's Day 2015 & Update

From our family to all those that served or are currently serving, we are grateful for your service to our country.

The kids are doing great. Row won the Principal's award [based on character, grades, attitude, and performance] at school and the A & B Honor roll. Red Ant made the all A honor roll, and both boys also had perfect attendance.

The rent house is still on the market, and the showings have dropped. Our agent had another open Realtor house with 30 agents looking at the house with our agent throwing in a $500 bounty from his commission for anyone that brings a buyer.

Sweetheart and I are winding down our Dave Ramsey class at church, and are considering taking a break due to various reasons.

My classes are going well. I should finish my last 8 hours towards my Bachelor degree with all A's. I'll graduate with high honors in May.

This Halloween Row, pictured above, went as Waluigi a fictional character from Mario Bros. Red Ant went as a Ghostbuster, or as he used to sing "Who ya gonna call?! Ghostmustard!".  Daddy dressed our sweet doctor as Chucky.

Our little doctor is already a computer expert because he changed a lot of my settings on my computer that I have no idea how he did it. He is currently happy to drag the mouse [unplugged] around the house, reading books, and using his baby sign language skills.
