pillow talk

That is, I wish it could talk and tell me how to put this dastardly pillow cover back together. Her's the deal. I have a cream colored cushion on my rattan couch. It is stained and ripped beyond repair (that;s what 3 little boys and a dog can do to a weak fabric). So, since I am in town visiting my sister for a week and she has a sewing machine with a zipper foot, I figured I could get her to help me sew a new one. I even scored a nice brown velvet for only $3 a yard! Amazing! But now that I took apart the old cover to use the pieces as a pattern for the new cover, I can't remember how to sew it all back together! And the cushion is back at my house. Oh blast!

out with the plastic

So my hubby and I decided we need to re-do our budget.
Or more accurately, make a budget.
So I got rid of my credit cards.
And we are going to try the cash system.
Oh Lord, please help me!
This will definitely be an exercise in faith!
And receipt saving. Pin It

new adventure

So, I'm basically doing this, blogging that is, as a way to connect with the rest of the world.
There is some stuff I want to know.
Maybe you're the one to inform me.
Maybe you can point me to someone who does know what I need to know.
Maybe this will make up for the lack of phone calls to my mom.
Anyway, it's a new technological adventure for me so look out!
