  1. A party sounds great! I didn't realize so many people had been gone. Welcome back everyone who has been away!
  2. Thanks, everyone! It's good to be back! I've missed you all! Mt_Rider, you are probably right. It was probably one of those crazy things that happen! Gosh, so much has happened since I was last here! I think I had my baby by the last time I logged on. He is definitely our last! He's 6 now and the sweetest, most ornery little thing! My oldest is now in HS and we have two more in MS. We were able to adopt our daughter, whom we've had since she was a year old. That was one of the best days of my life. <3 We moved again since our last house was a temporary thing, but are back to our old neighborhood. I went back to school again and am just finishing up with an AAS in CIS. It's pretty exciting! Right after the recession, I had tried to get a job for over a year...between 125-150 resumes submitted in a year and only 2 calls. This new degree should really help. Apparently, the unemployment rate in this area for IT jobs is hovering around 2.3%. In the meantime, I've let my stores and preps fall behind, unfortunately. It's time to get serious again. I can't wait to catch up with all of you and hang out. G&V
  3. For some reason, I haven't been able to log onto here for years!! I've tried to reset my password, create a new user profile, etc... but have not been able to log on! I've even tried several computers and IP addresses. After a very long time, I decided to give it a try tonight and am finally able to log on! Honestly, it's so strange, I really can't figure it out. One day, my logon just wouldn't work anymore. It kept saying my password wasn't right, but wouldn't let me reset. Anyway, hi to everyone! I'm not sure if any of you even remember me anymore... I'm friends with a couple of you on FB, but am really excited and happy to be back on here. I can't wait to catch up on all I've missed! G&V
  4. Thanks so much everyone! He's already started to get his own personality and I'm in love!
  5. I am so happy to announce the birth of baby Elijah "Eli" William, born on Saturday, August 20, 2011. He weighs 8 lbs, 6 oz and is 20" long. I don't have time to post the birth story right now, but I'll come back and post it soon.
  6. Denver approves measure to allow chickens, goats in yards DENVER - If you live in Denver, you could soon wake up to goats, chickens and ducks in your neighbor's yard. Monday night, the Denver City Council passed a proposal that will allow residents to have up to six food-producing animals on their property. Of those six animals, there can only be a maximum of two goats. Supporters pushed for the bill for the opportunity to produce food, such as eggs, but opponents say Denver is not rural enough for farm animals. The bill passed on a 7 to 3 vote. http://www.9news.com/news/local/article/204193/346/Denver-approves-measure-to-allow-chickens-goats-in-yards-
  7. I got 2 wrong, but I guessed on a couple that I got right.
  8. Michael, you're right about the warehouse stores. The only thing we saved money on was the diapers and some spices. Now that I've done my homework, I've found I can get better deals on most things through co-ops and other places.
  9. We started out the week at around $2.89 or so, although I actually paid $2.75 with a grocery store club card. Today, it's up to $3.09, or $3.06 with my 3 cent discount. I filled up because I'm afraid of what it will be next week.
  10. Also, I've added some of this mixture to homemade chicken stock and some veggies for a really tasty soup.
  11. One meal that is really good and filling and makes a lot is lentil/rice taco mixture. One cup of dry lentils with some chopped up onion in 4 cups of water, cook for 45 minutes. While that is cooking, make 2 cups of rice (1 cup uncooked rice to 2 cups water). Once both are done, add the rice to the lentils and then add about 6 tsps taco seasoning. (Mine is homemade and is really cheap) This is really good with a little sour cream and hot sauce, or a little shredded cheese. Usually I add in some cooked hamburger for flavor, too, but it's not necessary. Serve like tacos or burritos on homemade tortillas. This makes a TON of food and I usually have to freeze half.
  12. An army sniper friend of ours (he's not full time active, but I think he's reserves right now) had to go visit a base the other day. He started posting things about how China has EMP and stealth tech and what would you do if they invaded, and then in another post offered to start giving his friends marksmanship classes for free and getting his friends ready. Talking about checking your priorities and readiness. "What do you have to bring to the table" type things. He won't give any specifics about why he's suddenly posting strange things like this, but I thought it was pretty odd.
  13. We have King Soopers, which is the same as Krogers. My DH once found large packages of diapers for $2 a pack! 2 of the packs were the size we needed and one wasn't, but we got them all anyway. My Gram taught me to always check the back of any grocery store for their markdowns. I've bought 5-6 boxes of Stash tea for 25 cents each, pie filling for super cheap, etc. I've never seen actual cases of anything, though. Nice find!
  14. I missed my turn. The last time I looked, I still had 3 hours + to go, but then completely forgot about it.
  15. Ha ha...6 hours 10 minutes! I'll keep it open and maybe I'll remember to check it.
