Some people spell it possum...either spelling is correct!

next fall i will send you a bunch of box elders.....i don't think the CANADIAN govt would like me to well. they are a NUISANCE. best viewed in an encyclopedia. we get thousands of them, they cover everything. you can't even sit down outside so i don't think you would really like them.

I have to admit there were some things I rememaber I wanted to remember some of the sayings I wanted to remember as well as some links I wanted to remember as well. That's the only reason I'm going to go back through the first 2 months. From now on out I'll save that info when I see it.

I did not notice an odor when i killed him, not like when we kill those kind that look like they are a shield. those STINK when you squish em. Anyway, we had horrible amounts of the box elders this past fall so likely he is one of them. Never saw them in the spring before. or winter for that matter! Thanks for the lesson.
I see them in the summer. They creep me out. I think the babies are red. I find them on the outside of our house but esp near hte side door and also in the plants. I have always wondered if they hurt the plants at all. Good to know they don't bite.

My front porch has snow on it. I'll let DH do that when he shovels the sidewalks. He finally fixed the snow blower so now he is hoping for a really big snow. Me, not so much. We have used up all of our snow days so spring can come any time now.

I was a mean mom today. I made the kids each do a job. We always did cleaning on saturday mornings (or helped mom). I put some simple jobs in a bucket. It's there for when they fight or misbehave (Kylie stole a sucker at dance hte other night and got to clean both of the 2" wooden blinds in her room that were VERY dusty). I told them today they have a job just b/c they live here not b/c they did anything bad. So...Kylie wiped baseboards in LR and Jayden is 2/3 done wiping off the outside of the fridge. My plan was to wipe down wainscoting, trim etc in hallway but was too busy supervising. I am also partially done vacuuming. Had to stop b/c J got too whiny and so it was nap time. I told him he could finish the fridge when he gets up.

they both now have daily chores and we have started allowance. They each have 5 jobs per day (same ones every day). Make bed, feed dog, put clothes away (that I have w/d/f), throw dirty clothes down chute, pick up w/o complaining. We put stickers on their chart each day that they do each job. At the end of hte week, we count up stickers and they get paid 10 cents per sticker.

Personally, I think it is a good thing for children to have chores. My dd1 does that with dgd1. She started it last year when she was 3.

WE do too. I was joking about th4 reaction. "I have to do all of this???" Yep. they actually like getting stickers for their weekday chores. We need to figure out a way to build in saving and charity as well. My friend gives each child $5 per week. $2 saving, $1 charity (or tithe at church), $2 to spend. Haven't figured out how to break that down for our kids yet.

Tonight hubby and I are going to pick up my cousin at the airport. She gets into Detroit at 10pm and her mom doesn't want her renting a car and driving thru Detroit alone at that time of night (esp since she's been living in Vancouver for quite a while and isn't familiar with it). We're circling the wagons around Grandma. I feel like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

We were the last of the big spenders...our kids got $1 every 2 weeks for many years (we didn't start until they were 8 years old)...then they finally started getting $5 a MONTH...at age 16...


They had to tithe, give and spend from that!


Yep...now...they get nothing...they are 24 and 21 and they still get to do all that they did before but now for FREE!


Today they cleaned bathrooms, dusted, vacuumed, garbages...and they will be glad when they get to have supper!


I lived my childhood without ever getting an allowance or being given any payment for tasks I did around the house and at age 8 years old I could and did run our household, I did miss out on learning to budget money.


Sadly, I spent every nickle I earned babysitting (5 cents an hour back then) without ever learning to save...budgeting and saving has been a long, painful process as an adult.


I did learn from my parents' credit card issues that was not the way I wanted to live...and that was before Dave Ramsey...since I'm older than him!!!!


There's my 2 cents...you can always give me change if you don't like my 2 cents!

Kramamma - I was like you. I didn't get an allowance for anything I did at my house when I was growing up. And like you, I was basically running the house by the time I was 8 or so. If I didn't get things done the way the step-mother wanted them done then I would get whatever she had in her hands. By the time I was able to leave I was paranoid of people being behind me and skiddish of doing anything wrong.

The best thing I can remember was working in tobacco with my aunt & uncle who lived next door. I would get something like 50 cents a hour and on Saturday afternoons my cousins who were a year older & a year younger and I would ride our bicycles to the store and spend 50 cents on a soda and candy. I would make sure I had a bottle for the deposit or find one on the way. The rest of the money would go to my step-mother to give me 50 cents for tithing each week and I have no idea what she did with the rest. She was a trick to say the least. Some things change while others remain the same. She is one who has not changed.

Hello everyone.
We spent the day out looking for trucks and hitting some local antique shops. My dd bought a record player. She loves the beetles and has some of their records as wall decor so she wanted to play them.

I'm now on the chair and relaxing, I don't plan on doing much the rest of the day.

Donna, I was a paramedic the first time out of college.

Paula, have fun at the wedding.

Isn't it odd that a opposum was out during the day? Aren't they nocturnal?

I'm whittling it down a bit at a time. I have 1 more 20 oz glass of water to drink to meet my 100 oz per day and I'm going to work on those other threads. I may also work on the CRC stuff tonight for a while.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day today.

Where were you a medic? AND what did you go back to college to do?

I was the first female paramedic in our area, Bloomsburg PA. Out of the Bloomsburg hospital. Then I went back to school for business admin and was an executive for the American Red Cross out of Washington. I haven't worked since 2005. My husband was the EMT driver on one of the trucks I did my clinical on. We have been together ever since. 22 years. I haven't worked since having a stroke in 2005.

Melissa so sorry you have to work so many days in a row. But there are only 44 days or so of tax season left.
