Charleston Dog Show 2013

Last Saturday my husband, John, and I went to the Charleston Dog Show.  I had been looking forward to this event for months. We took our six month old puppy Hudson along to compete in the puppy contest.  We had been working very hard on his  “loose-leash” training and this was going to be the ultimate test of his skills.  I’d love to say that […]

Over the past two years I have incurred a lot of medical bills, so I am low on cash a lot of the time. The mental burden of feeling helpless in the face of those bills made me constantly concerned about our finances. I found that curbing my spending, and only purchasing “essentials” made me feel less anxious about those bills, because I am doing […]

My husband and I were bored recently and decided to explore our home town, Charleston. The Angel Oak on Johns Island: John and I were looking for something to get us out of the house that didn’t require a lot of commitment (time or money wise).  The Angel Oak is about fifteen minutes from downtown Charleston and entry is free.  It is a huuuuuge oak […]

Full width NBCfail

There has been a lot of discussion about NBC’s coverage of the Olympics, and I agree that it has been pretty bad.  Just go to Twitter and search “#NBCfail” and you’ll get an eyefull of complaints.  With tonight’s closing ceremony however, NBC’s coverage went from bad to horrible, and I couldn’t help but jump on board the bitchfest-bandwagon. The delay NBC’s coverage of the Olympic […]

Full width Antiques Road Show

In March of this year I found out that the Antiques Road Show was coming to Myrtle Beach South Carolina in June.  I love the show, so I excitedly went online, submitted my name to the ticket raffle, and crossed my fingers.  A couple months later I found out I’d won tickets!  I couldn’t believe it, over 100,000 people applied for tickets and only 6,000 […]

Are you an outgoing and fun-loving person looking for ways to entertain yourself without breaking the bank?!!  Me too!!!!  How’s that for an overzealous intro?  So here’s the skinny, I enjoy going out but I don’t always have the cash to spend on entertainment.  I’m guessing that there are more than a few people in the world who face my predicament, so here are my […]

Full width Garage Sale

My husband John loves tinkering with things and collecting tools.  It isn’t an expensive hobby because he buys most of his non-electric tools at the local pawn shop where they only cost a couple of dollars each.  Recently however, he started complaining that he couldn’t find anything he wanted at the pawn shops anymore.  I suggested that he try going to a yard sale, something […]

So you’re going to your first garage sale?
