Blah, blah, b-b-blah-blah-blah.

It's chilly outside and I just took a nap. We've stayed up waaaay too late the past couple nights and it caught up with me. Daniel was home this morning but his work called him to go run 2 jobs. He was getting ready to work on the dining room trim right when they called.

Anyway, I'm going to be making chicken noodle soup for supper tonight. I thought about making homemade noodles for it, but I think I'll stick with egg noodles. I haven't figured out what to use as extra filler for it, though. I have noodles, I have broth, I have leftover gravy that I plan use add to it, and I have the chicken meat. I don't have celery or carrots, or I would add some of those to it. Maybe we'll just eat it like it is with some leftover peas, rolls, and maybe I'll throw some celery flakes in there with a little diced onion. This will be meal 3 from the chicken that I roasted earlier this week, and I'm sure we'll have leftover soup. Yay :)

Way off topic, any Dave Ramsey fans out there? I just started listening online to his broadcasts and I must say it's very inspiring! It encourages me to keep doing everything I can to stick to our budget so that extra money can go towards our mortgage. I'm actually checking around with some people in our Sunday School Class to see if I can find a copy of his book to borrow. We've read and re-read Larry Burkett's book, but it sounds like Dave Ramsey might be a little more "up to date", even though the basic principles are the same.

Well, I just wanted to post something. LOL. I guess I ought to go work on the rest of my to-do list. I have about 1/2 of it done and need to fold a load of laundry, dry and fold another load, sweep the floors, dust the living room and feed the dog yet.

I hope you're staying warm and dry!

Sounds like a normal day over there. No carrots or celery? I can't exist without those in my refrigerator. I use them all the time. But, I spend more than $25/week on groceries!

Have you actively pursued helping people clean out their freezers/pantries? You might pick up extra food that way. Whenever Grandma does a cleaning, she always gives me stuff--frozen bananas, buckwheat flour, old bread crumbs or cubes, etc., that she knows she will never use. So far, I have used the stuff generally within a week of her giving it to me. I just thought their may be some elderly folks in your church like her.

From Aliisa:
We are big Dave Ramsey fans. We took his class and try to stick to what he teaches. I highly recommend his stuff. If you were closer, I would lend you might kit.
