Happy Sunday!

Hi everyone! Do you ever have times in your life when you just feel like...I don't know...being quiet? I've been in that mood for the past few days. I've felt like I just want to be quiet and observe and listen...and just enjoy. Probably a welcome treat for my friends and family...but not so good when you're trying to come up with something to write about!

It's a typical weekend around here. Yep, still in my jammies well into the afternoon. Hubby is designing, building, and installing some beautiful custom cabinetry in our living room (with lots of "help" from the kids, of course).

His project has really tested our "cash only" system. It seems that he keeps having to run to the Depot (we call it "Home Depper In Debt" instead of "Home Depot") for another piece of wood...a hinge...some stain...whatever. And we keep having the "what money are we going to use" conversation. On one level it's really irritating because life seemed so much easier when we just put everything on the card and dealt with it later. But it is SO liberating paying cash, and knowing that when we walk out of the store, it's PAID FOR. So yesterday we spent an hour with our change jar...sorting, counting, and rolling coins. We had hundreds of dollars in there! That should be enough to finish the project :)

I suppose if we were really disciplined, we'd put that change toward our goal of being debt free. But we're not, and I don't feel one ouce of guilt over it! Hey, you gotta live too.

So I should probably tell all you faithful readers out there (all 6 of you) what I've been up to in my little blogging world.

I've been working behind the scenes to change the location of my blog. I've been so irritated with Blogger lately...I can't get it to look the way I want it to, spell check doesn't work (and I NEED it!), the spacing on my posts is all messed up no matter what I try. So I'm jumping ship. I'm going to Typepad. I'll let you know when I have everything switched over. I'll wait at least until the giveaway is done, because some of my comments don't seem to be importing to my new location.

Well, I'm going to...gasp!...go take a shower and get dressed. But it's not even 3 pm yet, you say? I know! What an achiever I am!

I know somebody who uses word press and I'm always very impressed by the organization and how easy it is to navigate around her page. I have a feeling that you would like her blog as well. It's at www.blissandthebattlefield.com

I have thought about wordpress too for the same reasons as Alicia. I know I just started with blogger but I hate not having spellcheck and my link to text button has never worked. Super annoying! Is it really difficult to switch to something else?
