Us?? Silly?? Nah....ROFLMBO!!!!!!!!!! Just because we dane around different items, geesh!

1. Do you balance your checkbook, right away or once a week / month? Right away.

2. Do you use menus? HA HA HA HA HA - Enough said.

3. What are your plans for the weekend? SLEEP!! I'm *so* tired. I'm going to re-put up the curtains on Kyle's room and maybe the darkness will make him sleep later. Other than that I got roped into doing a skit for Sunday's service, so there will be a short practice on Saturday (luckily no speaking parts!! I *love* how the pastor roped me in though..ROFLMBO!! Called last night going "You still available for doing the skit Sunday?" As if I had agreed to do it! I just went "I wasn't doing it" and his comment about "You didn't say you wouldn't though"! ROFLMBO!!!! With Spring Break they were having trouble finding people to do it so I agreed even though I hate being up there!).

4. Any questions on the new format? Nope, I'm not confused yet. ;)

5. Any financial questions? Not really, still trying to figure out how to pay mortgage when your income is less than it is. There has got to be some ways for me to be "creative money management"....I'm just not creative enough. LOL!

Although...our city is trying to get a municipal internet/cable going and DH went to the town meeting last night, he met the guy in charge of it, gave him his business card and let him know he is looking for a job. If it passes, this could work to our favor. It's up for a vote on April 1. The guy said he's being inundated with resumes BUT I think DH may have a good shot for a few reasons (of course, I'm just speculating). He will continue to look & apply for other positions but we are keeping our fingers crossed for this.

1. Do you balance your checkbook, right away or once a week / month? : I don't balance my checkbook in the regular register at all, because I only use it to pay bills while sitting at my computer. I do, however, balance it in Quicken every week, sometimes more.

2. Do you use menus? : I have tried it, but never stuck with it.

3. What are your plans for the weekend? : Work on my thesis & some other homework

4. Any questions on the new format? : not right now. I think it will just take some practice & getting used to.

5. Any financial questions? : I thought I had one, but if I did, it has slipped my mind. I'll let you know if I remember.

1. Do you balance your checkbook, right away or once a week / month?

I do it every night that I use my checkbook.

2. Do you use menus?

I'd like to use menus more often but life sometimes just get to busy for me to plan

them

3. What are your plans for the weekend?

LOL. Lets see Saturday Matt and DH have practice for the Easter Cantata, then there

is the Sat church service that DH will play/lead the praise band. Sunday will be 2

services with the first we are bust with Sunday school, DH is the music teacher, and I

help out a bit every where. The the 2nd service DH will play during the service with

the praise band again. Then Sunday afternoon I have no idea, probably shopping and

resting.


4. Any questions on the new format?

Not for me, but someone else asked a question that I'm trying to track down. Every

time she tries to post she has to log in each and every time. I suggest she check that

her broowser accepts cookies, can you think of anything esle. BTW I prommis to do my

best not to log in here with my cl- but if I do forget please forgive me. (co-CL for

the Bankruptcy Q&A board.

5. Any financial questions?

Nothing at this time. *G*.

We'll forgive you about the CL hat...I know sometimes it's hard to remember. And now, from my understanding you have to close all browsers & re-log in. LOL! That's going to be hard for me, I tend to read all "my" boards CL or not and sometimes you see something that you want to just go ahead and reply to and then realize either you didn't have your hat ON or it's on and it's not supposed to be!!

My first post on the new board!

~ Daily Q's ~

1. Do you balance your checkbook, right away or once a week / month?

I balance it right away--otherwise, I'd have some unfortunate accidents!

2. Do you use menus?

Not really. My schedule is never the same--some days I go out with friends during the week, other days I just don't feel like cooking. DH usually eats at work anyway, so I'm off the hook for having to cook dinner!

3. What are your plans for the weekend?

I am going to relax and enjoy myself at this great horse show that I go to every year. My best friend is coming too and we need to catch up! She's also bringing her adorable Persian cat for an afternoon in the great outdoors. Plus, we'll probably hit the outlet stores at some point!

4. Any questions on the new format?

I'm getting used to it--hated it yesterday, but once I figured out that I needed to be logged in to make the new message icon go away, I was much better!

5. Any financial questions?

None today!

~ Daily Q's ~

1. Do you balance your checkbook, right away or once a week / month? *sure. yah, you bet. LOL- um, the *true* answer would be: I look online daily to see what checks/deposits have posted to the account. every week, I take what the bank says we have, add the missing deposits, subtract the checks, then I take THAT number and subtract what our balance is in the checkbook. This is NOT balancing- it's finding out about how much is in the 'slush fund'.

2. Do you use menus? *sure. at restaraunts....ROFLMBO!!!!

3. What are your plans for the weekend? *Weeeeellll, Tomorrow I'm *supposed* to go to Redwood Falls for a library class. If it snows like the nice weather guy says it will-there is NO FLIPPIN' WAY I'm going. Saturday, I get to work at the library, and then it's off to the Women's Expo that our town is having- the library has a booth. Saturday night, I am looking forward to going to 5:15 Mass(need some spiritual time. It's been THAT kind of week), and Sunday we're having my stepson's birthday party. yay.

4. Any questions on the new format? *How nice do I have to be?!?!? here are SOME of my questions:

a)WHY in God's name are there SO MANY pop-up windows? Whenever I click on 'outline', ANOTHER window pops up, and on and on. I had to disable my pop-up stopper, so now, I'm getting ALL sorts of iVillage pop-ups...grrrr.

b)I understand WHY the posts keep jumping around, but it's kind of unsettling. Is there any way I can do the outline thing as a default?

c)How come today, when I go to use the outline thing, we have NO OUTLINE?????? It was here yesterday, I know 'cause I *SAW* it.

d)Where is the reimursement form for all the motrin I'm having to take for the HUGE headache this new format is causing me????? ;D

e)Is there a support group for those of us who are feeling a little LOST, DAZED, AND CONFOUNDED? I am rolling with all this, and it IS easier than yesterday, but I tell you, I'm feeling like I'm blindfolded and can't "SEE" anyone anymore. It's kind of a bummer- the one thing that doesn't translate well to this type of format is the easy adding to posts~some of the best discussions seem to come when someone answers someone else, KWIM?

f)Why are things loading at approximately the speed of a well-salted slug? We have cable modem, but it's still slow. I can't IMAGINE what it would be if we only had the old dial-up. Is it just a temporary thing? (please God, please God, please God)

5. Any financial questions? *no. I'm confused enough, thanks. :(

Whew!! Slow down...breathe in & out...in & out...OK...

Now don't hit me too hard...I can't answer all your questions right now because I just took a peek before I have to run get the kiddos from school (and they don't like when we "forget" them there).

I CAN however answer these 2 questions quickly....

1. The reimbursement form will only be considered if you come to the get-together :) (Hey, don't be shy we can dance around the pool together!! I'm JUST KIDDING!!! Trust me, I wouldn't do that in real life. ROFLMBO!!! I'm actually quite shy.)

2. For the slowness that my dear friend IS a glitch and they are aware of it and are working on it. So "whew"!! No, that should not be permanent.

As for the rest...I'll have to investigate and get back to you (I'm thinking under a board setting somewhere you should be able to change a default to outline view but I'm not sure on that).
