The Weekend and More

These last few days have been so busy and full of sadness and horror. We have been so busy and mostly going here and there.

*We had two deaths (church related) one of which was a 17 month old little boy, that was injured in a car accident Christmas Eve night.
*A family friend passed away
*Two aunts (one from each side learned their cancer was back.
*A terrible robbery of tools and a truck from friends, less than a mile away.
*An attempted robbery of another friends home less than two miles away.
*One of the aunts mentioned above was rushed to hospital this am. She was conscious but not responsive. We are waiting to hear more.

I have been schooling the boys and comparing budgets as what we are doing right now is just not working. What budget system do you use for your family?

I have several appointments next week which include the much dreaded dentist appointment. We had our taxes done this past week.

We have got to have some driveway/ parking work done as we have a regular pig slop hole here. I need to call and get the gravel hauled in.

I have started planning the boys birthday party (for March).

We have a 4pm wedding to attend Saturday.

I have been working very hard for the small group........which might I say the meeting last Sunday night was quite a success! We had a loit of new ladies and some which do not even go to church there. Yippee!

I have a lease agreement to write today and also get a matter resolved about a purse that I purchased from Ebay. I so am not happy. I bought and paid for it around the 6th and still have not gotten it. I cannot get the tracking # to work and the seller apparently doesn't not like to return emails. Grrrrr!

John was home yesterday since there was no work to do and he ended up waking up sick with a cold or something. He is back at work today. I checked his pay stub for this week online and it was so low. It by itself will not even pay our power bill. Ouch! Oh and our power bill was higher than it has ever been in the eight years we have lived here.

So, I think that about brings you up to speed. Please leave a comment and if you do, tell me what budget (methods) work for you. That would help me so much! Blessings!!!

Things have been very busy here too, and I am behind in reading blogs and all sorts of things, and so for that I apologise.

It was nice to hear what you have been up to, although there was not much good news to share, was there?

So sorry to hear about the deaths, especially the little boy....that is so sad. My heart goes out to everyone involved.

I will have to find the time to e-mail you at some point to catch up!

Speak soon.

Thinking of you.
