Tales from the one-armed world...

Posted 03-13-2009 at 04:53 AM by lilacii

So, unless you know me outside of "cyber land", you probably do not know that I only have one hand. I had me left arm amputated when I was a senior in college. I was diagnosed w/ a rare form of primary bone cancer. I think I was more frustrated about my "college" time-line being interrupted than I was about learning to live in a two-handed world.

However, I now can look back and connect the dots in the time-line of my life. Had I graduated in time, I would...

Lesson 3: The stockpile

Posted 03-12-2009 at 07:43 PM by lisalouise37

Let me start out by saying I did not come up with these ideas. The following is not a new concept. It is just not something many people who have access to a store because of cars or are living near one don't think of shopping in this way.

So what is a stockpile? Just what it sounds like... a pile of items that you have on hand (stock) to use through out the year. It can be toilet paper that will last a year, a months worth of lasagna in your freezer, and/or 5 packs of diapers....

3/12/09 - Mr. Destructo and the Misfit Toys

Posted 03-12-2009 at 07:17 PM by jbarber8 (Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head)

Can you believe this cute little guy has earned the new nickname 'Mr. Destructo'?

In the beginning, his Daddy and I actually condoned a little bit of book destroying because it kept him quiet for a 2-hour ride in the car! (He has always been a big screamer in the car. OK, so our toys are suffering, but we are finally able to enjoy a family outing!!!)

I think his destructive habit has gotten out of hand lately....

Mini-lesson: My rules and mistakes

Posted 03-12-2009 at 07:21 AM by lisalouise37

Tonight I will post my lesson about creating a stockpile, but I thought while I have some time I will go over some rules I have made for myself. I have developed these rules based on mistakes I have made in the past. I am a firm believer that mistakes are necessary as long as you learn from them.

Rule #1 - I have said it before but repeat after me - I don't need to buy it just because I have a coupon. Would you spend the full 24.99 on a case of Huggies diapers if you didn't have a...
