My husband gave me a surprise!!!

He took Monday off!!! And guess what he did?????

He finished hanging ALL the interior door and put up all the handles......so now I really need to get busy painting. They look great. We both laughed and said that we may just need to stay right here in our quiet house in the cul de sac....we are getting everything fixed up, the way we wanted it 3 yrs ago, and who knows what will happen.

THANKS BABY!!! I LOVE THE NEW LOOK OF THE HOUSE!!!!

Lily was his big helper all day! She followed him around from room to room handing Daddy his tools. It was too cute! She loves to be a helper! I have been posting things on our local freecycle all weekend, and things are really starting to "move" on outta here~

Well its the beginning of a new day...Tuesday....the girls and I need to head to the dreaded store...WALMART....to pick up some grocery's...Is everyone else seeing a HUGE increase in their grocery tab these days??? William said we need to eat spagetti 3 times a week....a cheap meal for all of us...$4.... and the girls love it!!! However, we both would oh so get sick of it and QUICK! What kinds of meals are you all making for your crew, on a budget, that they love??

7 nice people had this to say:

It is hard to sell when you get things the way you want them. We remodeled our last house and then moved. It is hard to leave and then know someone has changed everything you did and were so proud of. The prices at the store are going up.

Have you tried Angel Food? You cant beat the prices. It's really been a help to us. There is one location in Millbrook. Check out the website.

Chicken and Yellow Rice is fairly cheap and my boys love it! Beef Tips and Rice, Hamburgers with chips (we buy the large pre-pattied box from Wal-Mart and use it til it's gone).

We also used Angel Food Ministries before Hubby developed his allergy to milk products. They have reasonable prices and good food.

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about us getting together in Clanton!!! Things are just crazy busy around here.

Thanks for checking my blog the other day. Can you girls eat tacos, they dont cost too much? How about ground beef with gravy and mashed potatoes, my kids love that and you dont have to worry about hard shells. Hope this helps
