The best friend ever...


One thing that never loses it’s value is gold bullion! Even when our stocks are floundering you can always look to silver, gold, and precious metals to maintain their value. Our friend, L, has had gold bullion in her portfolio for the past few years and we constantly compare. Despite the crashing economy - she's always in the black!

I'm sure she's looking for a good time to buy gold bullion with her tax refund money!

US Gold Bureau offers silver, gold, and other precious metals for delivery or they will make arrangements to have your metals stored privately and securely at a bank or depository.

I didn’t realize this but US Gold Bureau is an industry leader. They sell gold in two forms: coin or ingot. The world demand now exceeds the supply demand for gold - which makes it a pretty smart investment.

Maybe...just maybe...

we will have a finished bathroom within the next month or so!

Today the guys are working on the subflooring and plumbing and hoping that we might be able to put some walls up.

Then it's all me. Meet the tile-girl.

I've never done it before but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay someone $500 to do this work.

Call me a cheap bastard...or ... the tile girl.

A fortune...

the last time we were in California I was shocked at how much they wanted for California car insurance!

I had to decline it because it was almost double the cost of the car rental. That means that I drove super safe and took special care to avoid all bad situations. Including parking 10 miles away from the store and nowhere close to other cars!

Planes and ferries.

Well, we're booked and ready to go to Canada! We bought our tickets and it just so happens that Alex and Dom are getting married the exact same weekend that Margot's cousin's wedding is.

How crazy is that?

So we're taking a plan out to Victoria and then we'll take the ferry over to Vancouver for the boy's wedding.

I can't wait and I just hope that Emmy has gotten over the terrible twos and it wouldn't be so bad if she was potty trained either!

A bathing suit...

is in my near future. I know.

However, I'm not sure the world is ready for it! I've stayed the same weight for about two years now and I am looking for some quick weight loss.

I'd love to look like a new person by the time we went to Canada in October but not sure I'm going to be able to pull it off.

Maybe I'll actually go the exercise and eating better route...


Our weedeater is a total bitch to start up. In fact, I haven't been able to get it up and running in a few years. I think I got frustrated at it and in the middle of trying to put string in it and getting it to go I threw it.

Oops, did I just admit that?

Well, I need it now.

And I'm hoping that it will forgive me because the grass is growing up into my flowerbeds and I'm starting to look like I'm crazy for mowing weekly and neglecting the edging.

Maybe I'll just go "borrow" one from Sears for 90 days and return it when the season is over.

I know you can't resist.

That is why I am daring you to click here.

That's right. I dare you.

Just do it.


What were you thinking to trust me? You know how sneaky I am.


and I don't hear a peep! The girls were pretty tired and I'm guessing that they've decided to go to bed.

When I left them they were reading a book and giggling.

Maybe I'll go check on them.
