2/24/14 Fall cleaning, first day of school and bent computer screens…

written 8/16/11 – We got everything done today except for having Lizzy pulling the car in the driveway and me calling the church. I called the church, but the pastor is on a mission trip and will be back in another week.

We started fall cleaning today. We have a lot to take to Goodwill, the resale book store or throw away. We pile our outgoing items in the dining room by the buffet. They are in the way there so they have a better chance of making it to the car. We used to put the items in an out of the way place, but then they were forgotten about and never made it to the car. At our house if items don’t either get put into the trunk or put in my purse, they never make it to their destinations. How do you get things out of your house? It feels good to do deep cleaning.

Maggie’s first day of school went well. Her best friend was there. The kids had placement tests and talks about being polite in their college classes. They had pizza and bottled water for lunch. They could buy ice cream to support one of the clubs.

Maggie saw a lot of her old friends and talked to two freshmen. She also got her schedule. That was a big relief to her. She really wanted to see what her classes were.

William is ordering a computer screen for his laptop from E-Bay. He will know tomorrow if he won the item. His screen is cracked …bent…. he is able to take his screen off of his laptop and put a new one on.

Thanks for stopping by! Please come back tomorrow and see what new adventures we have found!!!

  • A lovely vignette from the past! I wonder how things are going now, and how they progressed after this…

  • I cracked the screen on my laptop once. I actually hooked it up to an old computer monitor until I got a new one.
    To get things out of my house, I either try to pawn them off on other people or donate them to my father and stepmother’s church. Their food pantry takes every kind of donation.

What If We All Cared?
blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this. If I bring other people in to Blogsvertise I can get a percent of what they make. I have the link on the side of my blog. If you click on it you can register your blog and start making money.
