  1. I know there were a couple of conventions this weekend in FL - hoping to find one of the $15/$50 coupons that are normally on the catalogs. Need to put an order in ASAP for outgoing materials, and our convention isn't until JUNE! Please help!
  2. I'd offer them up free for shipping on the thread for that here
  3. We're using SL B and really loving it. I'm not familiar with the other program you mentioned though sorry.
  4. I think you could with a little tweaking - we do and are also no longer Catholic. I DO cover some sections with post-it notes to show we skip those. But it's only a few pages at most.
  5. What I'm asking is - what items would you bake now and freeze for when you didn't have an oven? I'm looking at things like muffins, breads, cake, pies, etc that then can just be thawed and eaten. We normally have some type of baked good with nearly every meal. I listed the available appliances we will have in case they influenced ideas. And yes - we do use pretty much all those regularly. We eat 3 hearty filling home-cooked meals a day :D The only one I'll be purchasing is the rice maker, and we normally cook rice on the stove 3-4 nights a week. The grill already was on my buy list.
  6. We are putting an offer in on a house on Monday {prayers would be appreciated}. While the house itself is in great condition for the price, the kitchen was redone without a space for a stove or oven. We're going to put a gas one in :D but it may be a little while {up to 3 months} before we can purchase a new stove {our current one is electric}. We will have a microwave, crockpot, toaster, set it and forget it rotisserie cooker, quesadilla maker, corn dog maker and a waffle maker. I'll probably pick up a rice maker too and maybe a BBQ grill. Knowing this - what would you cook / bake now and freeze for when you didn't have a stove / oven? The lack of a stove doesn't worry me, but we do like to bake a LOT. We do a lot of baked meals or make desserts in the oven. I already have on my list cranberry bread, pumpkin bread, banana bread, different types of cake, pumpkin pie, and corn bread.
  7. My dd is a young 2nd, and she loves the Mo Willims Pigeon books. I think there are 5 or 6 books in the series now.
  8. Can you elaborate on the AG Cyber monday sales & weekly sales? DD wants Molly :D
  9. I totally agree with all of y'all! And don't even get me started on the Plus size tops that the neckline goes well below the bOOks in both front and back! It's so hard to find MODEST things in my size.
  10. No chocolate here as it doesn't agree with me, but I'll be making cake later on. I'm thinking golden with crushed pineapple in it. We're in limbo on the house - my agent has to wait for some ID number from HUD before we can put an offer in. We HOPE that comes Monday so we can put a quick offer in. But in the mean time I'm plotting and planning :D:D:D . And yes that is a pool in the back yard. Really hoping it isn't a deep one as dd hasn't learned to swim yet and I'm incapable of it due to a brain injury as a kid {I'm mostly fine now fwiw}. Weekend....cleaning & tossing stuff. Bagging stuff for a HUGE donation to the local thrift shop {they are picking up Friday}. Posting stuff on our local HS blessings bash FB page. More cleaning. Maybe some packing too.
  11. It is a pool :D But as of yet I haven't seen the actual pool - waiting for the house inspector to lift the cover. I am hoping it isn't as deep as I think it is - we really don't need a deep pool as I can't swim and dd hasn't learned yet. All I really need to do is a little repair and repainting, and it will look great. The purple in the kitchen HAS TO GO! It's going to be Sugared Lime and the dining room white. And I have to re-tile the two small bedrooms and paint dd's pink, and put fixtures in a half bath. *fingers crossed* and pray hard - we are putting an offer in Monday as soon as my agent gets approval from HUD to do so. And so far no one else has put one! As for what's calling to me....I've always had a dream of running a used book store catering to homeschoolers. I actually sat down once and figured out what I'd have to have and it was possible, but not practical.
  12. I'm just now getting to the board today, I've been busy all day on the phone chasing down a refill for my thyroid meds that the Dr. has ordered but not yet sent to the pharmacy. As of 2pm today, it still hasn't been called in yet. Did I mention I'm out of it? :glare::glare::glare: I've been trying to get this ordered and filled since MONDAY. But, in good news, I have a pretty much confirmed buyer on my house. He wants to buy for less than I want, but at least it won't go to foreclosure. Given the issues with this house I'm glad to find a buyer. Now I just need to get a new house found and closed on it. I have my eye on this one http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5203-Village-Gln-San-Antonio-TX-78218/26364755_zpid/ and I'm waiting for my agent to call me with the exact details so we can put in an offer. I am praying hard that they accept my meager offer of $30k cash instead of the $44k they are asking. We went to look at it yesterday and really liked it, even though it is smaller. It has the same double sized master bedroom setup as our current home, which works well to split into school room and bedroom for myself. The smallest bedroom is quite tiny, but we're going to use it for a storage room so it works. I'm spending today getting rid of stuff - nearly everything in the Garage is going to have to GO as none of the houses we are looking at have garages. So I've been posting stuff all day on our local homeschool blessing bash FB page, and I'm waiting right now for a few folks to come for things. Everything left after Monday will go to the local thrift shop. As for breakfast - I've yet to get any. I'm going to make chicken fries & noodles and a can of veggies and call it good :D
  13. Which Journey book is it? I'm pretty sure I have an extra Brownie Quest girl book, lightly used. I'd be happy to send it for the cost of postage.
  14. Nivea Extended Moisture is a good one, and should be available at most places {Target, WM, WG, etc}. I don't like most girly lotions either, but this just smells a lightly scented smell - kinda baby powder and floral but faint. The smell goes away pretty quick too. And it's SUPER hydrating :D
  15. Just across town. But with no drivers in the family, it really isn't much different that moving out of state. I'll be hiring help to get us moved. We need to have everything packed up for a marathon moving day as soon as we find the new house.
