Weekly wrap up, a contest and VGNO!

We survived the first week of working at home and home schooling together! The funny thing is, I got just as much work done, and also got more organized!

My daughter organized coupons for me. I haven't used coupons in a few years, but vowed to start doing it again. Not only do you save money, it's a great homeschooling education.

I have been getting some paperwork in better order. I usually have piles laying around- NO More!

Tomorrow, we have a wedding to go to. Not sure if we are going or not- it's not someone we are close to- in fact, I've never met them. Ron works on the guys truck now & then. There is also a Fall Festival going on AND a boat show! I THINK I want a big, fancy boat someday! I say think because I have never been on a cruiser with the exception of the one owned by the doctor I used to work for. He had an OLD, OLD boat. This is more like what I want:

The Fair last Saturday was ok. By the time we left, my daughter was practically screaming in pain. She has problems with her ankles due to the Juvenile Rheumatiod Arthritis. She had her first shot a few days before, but I guess it hadn't kicked in yet.
Had a phone call yesterday from Ron's ex. She has been living in Vermont for years. 6 months- a year ago, she moved back into the area. His oldest son, whom I have only met once, stayed in Vermont with his girlfriend. Yesterday, when the ex called, she said the son wanted to speak with Ron, that he was living here now. All I could think was, "Oh no, hope he doesn't need a place to live!" We already have 3 sons/step-sons 18 yrs- 30 yrs. old staying here. Come to find out, he just wants to get together. Ron told him maybe we'll cook out Sunday and he can come over and see his brother's and the nephew he's never met (That would be Little Man!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Yesterday Princess Der had another Methatrexate(sp?) shot. She had a horrible belly ache last night, but seem ok now. She did pretty good this past week. Very little pain with the exception of the Fair

Great idea! I've never thought of having my daughter organize the huge pile of coupons I keep promising I'll use!

Stoppin' by from Ann's VGNO!

Great idea having your daughter organize your coupons for you - I'm so going to have Princess Nagger do that for me when she gets older! :)

Happy VGNO! :)

I really feel for your daughter. I remember those days very well. One day I would be fine, the next I'd be on crutches because my hips or ankles weren't working. I was glad to "grow out of it".
I pray my son's does well and doesn't go full blown Ankylosing Spondylitis.
Thanks for you comment.
I've been tweeting for Morgan. Isn't she wonderful?
Happy VGNO

Ok, we went to the store yesterday. Guess I should have checked the way she organized them 1st. It took forever to find one coupon!

She added a additional few categories to my list and the names were pretty funny- one was "Cool stuff Princess Der wants" except she used her name, of course!

Oh well, maybe next week!

Stopping by from Ann's VGNO. Great idea getting your daughter involved with the organizing!

Have fun if you go to the wedding. We've got a fall fest going on around here too.
