Getting Ahead Frugal and Simple – that is the name of the game!
It’s Friday and I believe this has been the longest week.
I think it was because of the Sunday road trip home from OK! East bound and down – we showed those truckers how to get on down the road – LINCOLN STYLE!

And in keeping with Life as a Mom’s Blog on Decluttering:
Ordered the Dumpster and picked up the permit (cost $30.00) – we are saving a lot of money by doing the demolition ourselves and we have friends and family who will be helping. Pray that next week the heat wave gets pushed out and we get some nice
