RMN Strikes Again!

Last weekend, for an unpleasant reason, J had to go to North Carolina. He flew into Charlotte (best price) and then was renting a car to drive near Raleigh.

I say Raleigh like everyone knows where it is.

So....being the fabulous wife that I am, I booked him a car from Before I checked out, I went to (of course) to see if there are any online coupons.


I was going to be paying $60/day for a regular car. What is regular you ask? Well, I myself had that same question. Turns out it's not quite full size but not quite economy. Yeah, I'm still confused myself. The coupon code, however, gave me a $20/day rate.

2 minutes saved me $80. Definitely worth it.

Aaaaaaaaand, We're Off!

Do you ever look at a time period and ask yourself what you did? Where did that hour go? What did I do for the last 7 days?

I feel like Meg Ryan in 'Who's Got Mail' when she's trying to think of what response she could have given Joe Fox.

Kathleen Kelly: [writing to "NY152"] No, I know what you mean, and I'm completely jealous! What happens to me when I'm provoked is that I get tongue-tied and my mind goes blank. Then I spend all night tossing and turning trying to figure out what I should have said. What should I have said, for example, to a bottom dweller who recently belittled my existence? [stops and thinks

Kathleen Kelly: [writing] Nothing. Even now, days later, I can't figure it out. (Thank you

Yes, I think in movie quotes. The good ones!

Then I remember I was introduced to Pinterest just over a year ago. That explains everything! Pinterest can be very addicting. The first few weeks are an insane amount of pins. And then life happens. You check in on your pins every so often but you're mostly busy trying to make everything you pinned!

I've had many Pinterest-ing things made. Some good, some bad. But I have never had so much fun with projects! Starting in February, I'll be posting the completed projects. And the ones that weren't finished because they were too horrid to finish!

Have a safe and happy weekend!

It's hard to imagine that it is already 2013. This year, my oldest will enter double digits. Eek! How is that possible?

So it's been (to say the least) a very long time since I've posted. I know. For shame.

But since I began this site to help all my friends near and far that have asked 'How did you do it?', I kind of felt like it wouldn't be right to really include much on here about non-budget/food stuff.

Silly, right?

I realized that I love this. I enjoy sharing my life. Maybe through my dealings, people can take something. A little morsel of hope. Avoid a project that went south. All of those wonderful things that culminate to make life what it is.

So I will try to post more often.

Try being the key word!!!

Have a fantastic Tuesday.
