Going back to school!

Monday, September 1, 2014

Wow! I had been so busy that I had forgotten to update my posts on this page. Summer has gone by and now September has started the kids are going back to school. The good thing about it is that we're done shopping for the  school supplies for our son which is going to be in third grade this year. He is so excited to go back to school to see his friends again. He said it's so much fun at school because they do so many activities especially in the gym where you can do whatever you want unless the gym teacher doesn't allow it. :)

Students of the week award

Saturday, April 13, 2013

As they say if a picture could talk it would have a thousand words at least to say. Our son is growing up so fast we wish he would slow down if he could. He is doing so good in school and we are so proud of him. The other day we received a certificate that our son again was student of the week for doing such a great overall job in his class.

Luxuries for pets comfort

Friday, March 29, 2013

When it comes to animals our dog and cat have the luxuries of the rich and famous. The cat has a bed the dog has a bed. Our dog has rain suit and a couple sweaters not to mention the little green elf costume for Christmas time. They have all the play toys and chew toys to last a lifetime. Its too bad it isn't so easy to do it for people.

Dog training

Every time my mother in law brings her dog over to dog sit if the dog hears a little noise that she's not familiar with she starts barking. She doesn't do this at my mother in law's house so we are thinking about buying her a training collar to slow down her barking when she's at our house. The latest in training collars has a mist spray that sprays out a citronella smell of spray up towards the dog's nose to deter them of barking. How weird.

Pet catering

It is so funny how much people including myself cater to our animals. The cat needs a cat house and a play area and of course the play area needs to have all sorts of different toys to keep the cat amused. Even our big saltwater aquarium each different fish has its own house and a rock or a plastic tunnel that we've picked up so it makes their environment more stress free as they swim around and poop.

More savings on bottled water

Thursday, February 21, 2013

The winter months are so slow when it comes to work and unemployment is not enough to pay the bills. Even though our well water is not bad water it is high in iron so each week we were spending 15 dollars on bottled water. Up to the other day we started taking our jag to my mother in law's where she is on city water which cost somewhere around 3 cents a gallon to use it. So now our monthly savings is about 38 dollars more a month.

By putting the gallon of jags in the refrigerator with their caps off a lot of the gas from the chlorine vents so you don't have that terrible taste in the water.

The Adirondacks

A beautiful day at the lake with my sweetie up at Old Forge New York on the Adirondack mountain. A picture to remember. Can't wait for summer to come so we can go back.
