I’m off work (on vacation) for 3 weeks starting today. So be sure to check the blog, I’ll be posting lots off stuff since I have all this time on my hands :)

I just drove by the lot today. No progress to report yet – but I snapped two pictures on the camera phone. The winter has been very harsh this year, with all the snow; and that is delaying the construction of our new house. A few more weeks of warm spring weather should thaw the […]
In an effort to save money (because buying lunches everyday can get VERY expensive) I am really picky about making something for lunch at work. Think of it, … average of $7 a day, 5 days a week = $35. $35 x 4 weeks is $140 a month! Most weeks I treat myself to one […]
