Been Gone

Sorry I have been MIA. When my birthday month rolls around I go into full on vacation mode. And then I start eating all over town, and therefore I blog on my EATING blog.

Anyways I am back. I will start working on a few posts here real soon.

If you have followed along you know that we have a senior this year and she wants to go to a Private college. We are working on ways to get her money. It hasn’t been as easy as we thought because ALL kids are applying for scholarships these days since school is so expensive. My mother in law is helping my daughter and she sent one in and noticed that 400,000 other kids applied for the same scholarship. UGH!!!

We have a few more tricks up our sleeve as we have talked to other parents, so hopefully I will have more information for you soon and hopefully it will be really good news for us as well.

Also spring is in the air for some and not quite for others. For instance here it is March and we had snow all day today. Not very common in Portland, Oregon this time of year. But if you want to break in to your spring wardrobe I can help you out.

Again sorry I have been gone. I will leave my mental vacation and come back to earth and continue to help you save money, prepare home cooked meals and get creative with living on less.
