The test of time...

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 to 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.

MY DS Lite.

So I got Graem a Nintendo DS Lite for the summer. We promised one for her once she started reading. She liked it for the first few minutes and grew tired of it pretty soon after that.

SOOOOO, I've taken it as my own and each night I play for a little while.

So far I've been able to conquer Super Mario Brothers --- It was so much fun!

Now I've moved on to Bowser's Revenge.

Can't move.

My body feels so achy. I've been painting this damn house for the past four days and I can honestly say that I'm whipped. I'm going to hook up with some good drugs tonight and hopefully, I can get into bed before 10pm.

Of course, I might just lay there and play Super Mario brothers!

Project yourself!

Margot is constantly buying new things for work. The other night I saw her reading projector reviews online and trying to find the top rated projector.

It seems like there are thousands of projectors out there and really you could spend anywhere from $200 - $10,000 on a good projector! However, for work she is going with a middle of the road projector and I think she got a good deal on a Panasonic projector for around $800 or so.

I must say that it would be pretty cool to have a home projector - it sure would bring a new meaning to movie night!

A new computer...

So I have had my new computer for over a month now and I think Margot just finished changing all of the settings yesterday to the way I like it!

Now I just have to hope and pray that it lasts me a good five years or so!

School shopping!

I looked in Graem's closet and I'm pretty happy at what I see! I might need to get her some new rocawear jeans and I'm guessing she wears a 6x or even 7! The kid's got some legs on her!

I just got her backpack for school andshe loves it and is already using it for her camp stuff.

She also wanted the unicorn lunch box. I had to give in and figure I'll give in to the innocent stuff now so that when she gets older and wants the trashy stuff I can say "no!"

All work and no play.

So this summer has been challenging. Maybe it's been because we're in a new house and we've been trying to get everything nice and neat. Or because I started a new job, or put Emmy in daycare for the first time!!

Either way I'm waiting for things to calm down and for school to start so that we can get a nice routine and used to a schedule.

I am also looking forward to a nice 7:30 bedtime for the kids! WE all know that's when real housework gets done and when the kids stay up til 10pm that just puts a damper on everything!
