Good morning ladies, I am slightly confused by the summary and body boxes on the screen... Hmm, okay, well then, I hope everyone has a start to the day. What's on the agenda?

Ya, ours was cheap at the time, maybe 12 years ago.  I think she got it when we moved out of my parents house into a house of our own.  If they want one and you can't do it this year, watch the after christmas sales, you may be able to find a small one super cheap!  The one Jordyn has is a table top one, slightly bigger than the one in your picture, but instead of a stand on the bottom it sets in a wicker basket.

Ya, that was how mine was, I would have had to move my loans back to the original loan provider who I had consolidated away from and start my payments over again, and yes, by the time I did that, the loan should be paid off.

Good luck on your interview today!!!

Thank you Tracy. That is such a neat idea you did for Jordyn. The girls are wanting their own tree in their rooms the last couple of years. We could but the trees aren't cheap like they use to be. Heather thank you for asking about Natalie's foot. I got her into the Orthopedist this evening and he x-rayed it again and we still aren't 100% sure cause it's so extremely swollen. But he thinks it's broke. He put her in a boot cause of the pain and the amount of limping she has to do plus the swelling is so bad, we need to get that down and wearing this boot will help with that. She will have an MRI next week to get a closer look at all of it. He said for her to be limping this bad and and the amount of pain are consistent with it being broke. We have been through a broken foot about 4 years ago with Matthew. It all seems the same and very familiar. So I am leaning towards a broken foot too. Just wish we could remember what she did to it.

Hi everyone,

I'm feeling really exhausted today, all week really.  Things were kind of stressful at work today.   I came home and didn't even bother to exercise. I'm making a corn/potato/chicken sausage soup with biscuits for dinner, and planning to turn in early.

Ian had a regular school day.  Kayleigh had a regular school day and then art club. Nothing for tonight.

Thanks Tracy!

It's something worth looking into.  There was something on there about making 120 payments while you're working there- I don't know if I've got that many payments (it's not a huge loan- but it's still money hanging over my head). 

If I take a job there (interview at 3:30 tomorrow) I'll definately look into it :)

Cheryl, here is the student loan forgiveness info: http://www.staffordloan.com/repayment/forgiveness.php I know there was another one, but with the changeover, I can't find it right now.

Very cute tree Chelle! We have one of those, its in the attic. It used to always go in Jordyn's room every year and she had their special winnie the pooh fiberglass bulbs she put on it along with a few other sentimetnal ones to herself. She doesn't have the room in her current room to put it up, so it hasn't been up in a few years. I may ship it to her for christmas at college next year since I know they won't have room for a full sized one in the dorm.

I had planned on a day of lazy for myself today.  I am just too drained of energy to do much of anything.  I don't know why.  It's been a low key morning.  Zeph watched a history show, built with Legos and played on his Ds while I slept.  He's hitting the books this afternoon. 

My cleaning can wait.  I'm looking forward t DH coming home from this trip.  It's a good thing we decided against TX since he is flying from TX to  NY.  I'm glad not to have to do the drive home alone.
