    I got called to teach at 7:30 this morning to teach 40min away. I was still in bed at the time. The teacher had car trouble. I will be in for him again tomorrow while it is in the shop. I was already booked at his school for Friday. Since I will be teaching this class for 2.5 days this week, I am now implimenting a temporary reward system for the class. I think the prize will be a Mars bar for the winner.

    avon I hope the change in meds make a difference in your husbands vertigo and general health, poor guy. My public service health insurance has gone up 25% starting this month too and geez it sucks but like you it's great coverage so it's worth it.

    Dh has done great on his de-cluttering/purging he started off with I believe 9 various sized rubbermaids and is now down 1 single small Rubbermaid....yippee...he needed to do it in his own time and he got me to post 5 items on the local facebook page that he would like to sell. It feels so good to have some empty boxes ($ saved) and lots of order back in the house (downstairs)

    I have an appointment tomorrow with a surgeon for underarm problems and to discuss my on again off again gall bladder issues, hoping to wait until late March or early April to have these 2 issues addressed as we will be moving Jaden downstairs by the end of the month if not hopefully sooner. We have been working on the new room and Jaden's old room. As mentioned earlier Logan will be moving into Jaden's old room while we gut Logan's existing room, install strapping and spray foam the walls (strapping/studs), then we will need to rebuild the walls with drywall, mud, sand, paint etc....Hoping to have enough in prescription reimbursements to cover the cost of the spray foam insulation, we have almost if not enough drywall in the garage and tons of drywall mud so all is good, only expected expense is the spray foam kit from either Home depot or Lowes but these kits are still very expensive but a fraction of the cost of having a professional do them. They are quite easy to do and the Rvalue is awesome and it's so fast (lol). Cant wait to start Logan's room as after Logan's room we will save up for our master bedroom which needs all the same things done plus the added cost of a new window so I need to budget a little each month to ensure that this will be down over next winter (2016)

    Stayed home yesterday actually we both stayed home sick. I slept for 18 hours out of 24 yesterday. Doctor today...yes i have bronchitis and both ears are infected.

    Bf bought take out last night because neither of us felt up to cooking

    Back to work today as i am feeling better than yesterday. Will pick up my meds shortly and return my library books.

    Because we dont have the boys and we picked up groceries on the 31st i havent touched this months groceries budget but have touched the everything else budget getting more cold meds. 40 pills dont last long when two people are sick!

    It's ok to leave Christmas lights up a few more days until the temperatures warm up closer to 0C!

    Coat dried overnight! Still smells like Febreeze and two people have suggested parking said coat outdoors for a bit. Might do that and see if any improvement cccurs.
    @thriftygranny -thank you for the alert on lineups at Fabricland during their sales event. Mom & I intend to venture there on Saturday so perhaps we need to count on the lineups and focus on the notions and skip my urge to peruse pattern books! Will see if Burda Style has their mini 2015 Spring/Summer booklet at the store.
    @Andit -if you have any root veggies (parsnips, carrots, even parsley root), peel and chop them into chunks, add about 1Tbsp of oil and sprinkle some white pepper and salt (put everything into a shallow pan or rimmed sheet)-put into oven at 375F or 400F and about 20-25min later, you have a yummy side dish. I had carrots and parsley root in a crisper>did this for lunch today.

    Mom's delighted that the turkey she put into the oven this morning turned out well for lunch!
