Spring I FINALLY Here! :)

 I am so sorry that I have been so neglectful of you & the blog. This winter here in Montana was a rough one for me. I was starting to wonder if I needed to see the Doctor about medication or what. :( I was at a place where I just didn't care about anything. I didn't care about scrapping, didn't care if the house was clean, & some days I didn't even care if I fed my poor family. Our weather would go from downright frigid one day with 2 feet of snow to 40-50 degrees two days later. We would get 18-24 inches of snow then it would melt off only to get dumped on almost as soon as it melted again. Here are some pictures that a friend of mine took that were only about 4 or 5 days apart. Thankfully it seems like once Mother Nature got back on her meds I felt soooo much better. lol :)

 I have also decided to expend the focus of this blog. I am going to continue with the scrapping (just in case you are reading this Ginger, Marcie or Chere, I promise, lol). I am also going to share frugal tips that I come up with around my house & yard. I know I have mentioned it in here before but I am a stay at home mom to 3 1/2 kids (3 live with us full time, one of them is part time between here & his mothers) that are 20, 15, 15, & 4 years old. That makes for 3 1/2 males & 2 females in this house, & those males can eat us females under the table. my husband recently went to the doctor & found out that he has high blood pressure & cholesterol . He has to be on meds for the blood pressure but for the moment we are trying to deal with the rest with diet & exercise. Then again all of us with the exception of the 4 year old, Princess Demon Child, need to lose some weight & be more active.

 So due to all of this & just generally trying to keep the budget down I am going to start sharing the ideas that I come up with to save us & hopefully all of you a little money. It is all a part of my effort to escape the craziness of my daily life, after all.
