SURPRISE GIVEAWAY! I wish I could give away the Fresh Vegetable book to everyone that leaves a comment because you all deserve to be in good health. For now it will have to be two… maybe four. Seriously, when I read some of your comments and how sick some of your family members are, it broke my heart. They need to get rid of the processed food and replace that with drinking fresh vegetable juice! If you don’t own aRead More

Adult Children Living At Home

 If you’ve read my about page, then you know that I have ten children. Five of which are adults and four of which live at home. Our adult children range in age from almost 18-years-old to almost 26-years-old. Because my husband and I had a very different upbringing, we didn’t at first agree with how we were going to handle the living situation with our adult children. Joe grew up in the Humboldt Park neighborhood in Chicago and livedRead More

How We Paid Off $11,000 In 7 Months

11.05.2018 debt-free, videos

 DEBT PAID is such an awesome feeling!!! Better than ever charging anything on a credit card. In fact I actually felt the opposite when I spent on a credit card. I would walk out of clothing stores after spending too much money with an awful ache in the pit of my stomach. I know there are some out there who find spending a thrill. This is NOT me. I find spending nauseating and I find being in debt suffocating.Read More

So two days ago I cried into these stairs for soooo many reasons. If you've been following my stories, then you know the counter top installer cracked our IKEA no-longer-being-made kitchen sink. Because we had to run out and quickly buy a similar one, they didn't charge us for the install. Ya. What I didn't mention before is that even though these two came highly recommended, the install of the counters was poorly done. They left gouges in the wall, they didn't finish the trim and the trim they did finish was cut unevenly. Thankfully I knew how to fix everything but what a disaster. I should have just installed it on my own. Then this past Monday we had our carpet replaced. We paid extra so I wouldn't have to move the furniture. When they arrived, not only did they say that they don't move furniture, while it was being torn out (different than the counter top people), they tore off parts of the wall along the stairs. I only showed one photo in my stories but it was all along almost every step. Then he told me to expect lots of scuff marks on the wall. "It's to be expected. They should have warned you." What?! So I told him that I just finished painting this entire house and to please do his best in not scuffing them up. He agreed. They finished early Tuesday and as soon as they left, I got to work fixing their mess. Only this time around, it was a lot more challenging than fixing the counters. This is when I just broke into pieces. The next day we were refunded our "furniture moving" money but the damaged wall is in dispute. Ya. But let's look at the bright side, we were able to fix and repair all the damage left behind. Happy Thursday 👍 .
