10 Tips for Teaching Kids to Spend Less:

When your child asks for an item while you’re at a store ask: “Is it on our list?” If not, don’t buy it.

We went to the Mountain's today, it is always nice to have a meal like chicken and dumplings.
My sister tells us a story, she heard knocking on the door and went to see. It was her two chickens, they were pecking on the door. We said, they wanted more okra.
We did say you are a real Hillbilly when you have chickens knocking on the door. We love our Hillbilly heritage.

Dude, when did going to the movies become something you had to save up for? I know that bitching about the cost of movie-going these days has been done, but I can't help it. Everytime I go, I wonder how the people that run the theaters and/or the people who run the concession, are able to get their A.I.G. on and continue to charge consumers prices for things like candy and soda that are so clearly robbery. Oh, and now, not only are they continuing to violate us in the most base and lube-less of… Continue

A bit of history: About a month ago, a friend of mine decided that she was going to have her IUD un-installed. She thought she was "ready to start thinking about trying to come to a decision about" getting pregnant. She knew the consequences. We both knew the consequences dammit but that didn't stop us from throwing caution to the wind and then watching it fly right back and smack us in the faces with the sound that I imagine liver makes when dropped from a great height and lands on the… Continue

I've been trying for a few days to get one of those little scroll boxes with the HTML code for my button up on the site. I know that I am not the first one to have a hard time figuring this out because I found a lot of different sites that claimed to explain it. I've been trying for three days to do this so obviously all of these sites do not make it clear. I decided that I would do a quick write up of exactly what I did to get the little scrollable box to finally appear on my site. First of… Continue

It will definetly make your blog stand out among others. A lot of people don't have them and don't know how to put one on their page. This is good for us… Continue

I almost always forget to add my signature to the ends of my post. I have a signature and I think it is a very nice signature but it always slips my mind when I finish writing a post. I knew that there was a way to have your signature automatically load after each post but I just kept forgetting. So, anyway, here's a little guide on making a signature for your blog and where to put it so that it always shows up on each of your post.
First of all, you need a signature. The easiest… Continue

I was having a hard time concentrating on my work because my son has become extremely active and only sleeps 1 hour during naptime. I was thinking of getting a babysitter and my friend suggested that I should try Sitter City
