This year is Craig's 20 year reunion. It's now May and we've figured we've got to hear something soon. The light bulb finally went off and I did an internet search. Lo and behold, they have a website. Craig seems to be on the "Lost" list. Gee, that's funny, we've lived in the same house we lived in 10 years ago and they have all that information. It was in the thingy they sent out after the 10 year about what people are doing, how many kids, etc. On the website, they have our last name spelled wrong. :eyeroll: I suppose that's the reason he's "lost" but doesn't really make a whole lot of sense since if they pulled their head out and looked at the thingy that has our address in it.......

You know what's funny (NOT!) is he had to track them down for his 10 year too. He was lost then, even though his mom had the same phone number he did in high school. :eyeroll:

Can You Feel the Love Tonight?

Ok, so I'm not Elton John. LOL But I am a Pay Per Post blogger (or Postie as we're called in PPP circles). You've heard about Pay Per Post, right? Do you blog? Well, guess what! You can get paid to blog, too.

I've been blogging with Pay Per Post since February and I've made almost $250.00. I could have made more, but I've been so busy with life, I haven't taken the time to sit down and blog much!

The $250 is basically "found" money. I LOVE "found" money. LOL I'm actually saving it to get Oldest Princess some new glasses. She needs them as she hasn't had new ones in about 3 years and her current ones are all scratched up. I also want to save up for the next time we go to Disneyland or Walt Disney World. It will be spending money that I won't have to feel guilty over.

Would you like "found" money too? What are you waiting for? Go! Sign up!

Great Week!

It's been a wonderful week! The weather's been outstanding! Yesterday, I mowed the front lawn. I did half of the back lawn and ran out of gas. LOL Need to get more tomorrow.

Youngest Princess and I tried the grill to see if we had propane left (we couldn't remember). Yep, we had propane. WOOHOO!! I cleaned up the grill and we had barbecued chicken last night. Yum!

Oh to be a ladybug

Youngest Princess just informed me she wishes she was a ladybug. I then asked why. Her answer: "So I can fllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!" Hmmm, maybe I have a future pilot on my hands. Or, maybe she'll hang glide which will then send me to the loony bin. LOL I don't think I have enough nerves to watch that!

Whenever I shop online, I look for online coupons. A penny saved is a penny earned, right? has over 1,000 stores. You'll most likely find the store you're looking for!

There's a section for The Children's Place coupons. The Children's Place has some awesome deals! But what I really like is that you can still use a coupon code even if you're getting a sale or clearance price! Right now, is showing four different coupons for The Children's Place. One of them is even for $5 flat rate shipping! I love flat rate shipping from online stores!

Don't forget to go check out before you buy!!


It is May, right? OK, just checking.

Last week was sunny, overcast, pouring buckets, hailing and wind. Crazy, I tell you!

This week it's supposed to be 79! Too bad I work all day and then both girls have dance tonight. *sigh*

Small Business Bookkeeping

Since I'm a bookkeeper, I know how difficult doing payroll and keeping the books can be for a business. has made that process a lot more simple for small business bookkeeping. They have set up numerous companies and you can even get Quick Books online at a discount. You can't beat that! Bookkeeping services start at $10 a month. $10 a month is so cheap for a little piece of mind knowing that everything is taken care of.

If you need payroll services, prices start at $6 per employee. Payroll can be such a confusing process with all the federal and state taxes and forms. Letting someone else worry about all the "fine print" is definitely worth $6 an employee!

Check if you need an inexpensive way to keep your books and payroll organized to the last penny!

Someone was looking out for us

So after church we had to run to Target to get the cat food. After leaving Target, we had to stop behind people getting out of the car (guy was dropping them off) and this lady backed out from a parking space and hit the side of my Cherokee. I look out my window and see a cartrunk right outside the window. The car pulls back into the spot and I get out (imgagining the whole side caved in) and look at the damage. Craig asks, "So how bad is it?" I look at the back door and don't see much. I then close my door and don't see much. The woman gets out of her car asking if we're ok. Believe it or not, neither one of our cars has any damage. Not a scratch!! We all couldn't believe it. She must have hit us square on so that her bumper gave and our shocks took the brunt of it. We were all very thankful that someone was looking out for us today!
