A Great Photo Gift

Looking for a gift for that hard to buy for person? Are you giving on a small budget this Christmas? Right now Vistaprint is offering a free photo flip book. You only have to pay shipping. Rates are as low as $6.01, you are getting a $16 gift for $6 and some change.


We are a two car family. This is a luxury. Having two cars does make life a little easier. We have a car and an SUV. DH drives the car, the car is our gas saver. We drive it everywhere. The car was bought brand new in 2003. She has been good to us. Well, that is until last Thursday. Coming home she just decided to die while we were driving. I don't know what the heck she was thinking but I'm sure she has her reasons.

DH was able to get us home by two footing it. One foot on the brake the other on the gas. We decided to replace the alternator. So on Friday after DH got off work he went an bought a new one. Fail. That didn't fix the problem. That cost $177 for nothing. Thinking that maybe the alternator went bad and caused the battery to die we charged the battery all night and all day. Once DH got home from work on Saturday he checked on the car. Fail again!

That night we went to eat at my MIL house and to take all the kids trick or treating in her neighborhood. Once we were finished DH went to buy a new battery, hoping the battery was bad. You guessed it another fail. There was $85 down the drain also. This  time we decided that we would take it the a shop. This makes me nervous because I have no idea what it will cost. Today they are suppose to try and fix it.

Do you ever worry about stuff like this? Like how are you going to pay for this or that. I am right now. We have been hit with a lot of unexpected bills lately. I just pray we have enough money in our account to pay for it.

Do You Ever Wonder?

Do you ever wonder if you are doing the right thing? I'm not talking about anything in particular. Just anything. Can you tell them is probably going to be a crummy post? I'm just in a rut, in a mood I guess you could say. Two people that I went to high school with has faced some pretty tough trials. One of them her little girl just 18 months has be diagnosed with cancer. The other his wife just gave birth to a stillborn. It makes more heart ache.

Don't get me wrong I am so very thankful for my healthy family but my heart aches for these two people and their families. I know people go through this everyday but it just plain sucks when it's someone you know. Tinleigh is sick again. She does have more teeth coming in so hopefully that's why she's feeling under the weather.

Ainsleigh is doing great in preschool, she has made a major improvement since this. So very proud of her! We are still in limbo in what to do about DH job. Just keep praying for an answer and hoping some doors will open up. Ok that's all I have to say to sum up my week away. Sorry if you felt like you wasted your time reading this. I promise for next time to be more up beat!

A Reminder

As we embarked on trying to meet our goals. I am constantly reminded that I would love a house with a little more storage space and an open floor plan. While it is easy getting caught up in our wants I am reminded every time I get on the computer with I see the floor plan of the house we have picked out. This is a motivation for us. What's your motivation? Check back next week for an update on our goals.

My Name Is Brooklyn.....

and I have an addiction. Yes, folks an addiction. First off let just say I hope that I don't have the beginning stages of becoming a hoarder. Okay so I'm not that bad.  Anyway my addiction is magazines. The great thing is I don't pay  for any subscriptions but come on people. Stacks and stacks of magazines that are at least a year old. My excuse for holding on to them is because of an article or a craft. Something of a this or that nature.  Well no more excuses at least till I have a big trash party again.

Here is the stack that I tossed. Yes, there are over 20 magazines thankyouverymuch!

Here is the stack that I have keep because I haven't even got to read them. I have them nicely placed in my night stand drawer. Lets see how long it takes for them to take over that space and move on to somewhere else.  Wait, there I go again back to my old ways. I have turned over a new leaf friends and I am hoping it's here to stay.  What's your addiction?
