Friday, December 19, 2008


It's Friday again and what a week I have had. Hopefully, everyone in my family is completely over the stomach virus now. We definitely do NOT want that again!
I plan to take Payton to see Santa and her picture taken tomorrow. We are also going on a carriage ride through our small town we live in. Something our Chamber of Commerce is doing this year for the first time. I also have a couple of Christmas get togethers with friends this weekend that I am looking forward to.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you Monday!

Thrifty Tip - Redecorating

Everyone gets tired of the way a room looks. We wish we could spend money to buy new furniture, window treatments or paint. Try rearranging furniture. This is a thrifty way of giving a new look to a room without spending any money.

Thought of the Day

Find a getaway where you can enjoy peace and quiet, perhaps a garden or a lake near you. Go there often.
