News from the Front

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 22, 2009 @ 11:32 pm In Announcements | 7 Comments


Yesterday I did something I was loathe to attempt: clean out my “toy and school garage [5].” Long time readers, or at least those who’ve been reading since September, will remember that when we moved into this new house, we lost the school room [6] and play room that we had in our last rental. So, we converted the single car garage into a storage area.

My brother treated it for bugs prior to moving everything in, and I am pleased to report that except for a spider or two, there weren’t any creepy crawlies in there when I ventured in to establish order once and for all. I told you on Sunday [7] I was going to attempt it and I actually did it! Yeah! I surprise even myself sometimes.

It feels so good. Now, there are 5 other closets that need to be put in order, but progress has been made. Let’s all have a cookie!

In other news:

  • Ultimate Recipe Swap [8] (starting Wednesday afternoon) will be your chance to share your Holiday Food Traditions, whether in recipe, story, or song.
  • There will be no Frugal Friday [9] this week. But, it will return on New Year’s Day. Be prepared to share your Financial Resolutions for 2010! I was doing some calculating today and boy do I need to find my gazelle [10]! I’ve got big dreams for the next year.
  • Freezer Cooking Daze [11] will return in February. In the meantime, Money Saving Mom [12] and I are plotting another kitchen activity to help you save money. Stay tuned for more details.
  • Got a list going of all the books you’d like to read [13]? Well, I’ve got a great plan to help you tackle it in the New Year. Start jotting down reading recommendations ’cause you’re gonna want to play along when we “Book It” in 2010.
