Really?  Hard to believe it is here!

Out with the old and in with the new, the saying goes.

2012 was a rough year in several, unemployment, life stuff, house headaches.

2013 looks bright, full of hope and a new GRAND daughter coming soon is adding to the excitement!

So, I wish my readers a HAPPY NEW YEAR!  May God's blessings and goodness fill your lives & hearts!

Yeah, yeah, I'm dragging in posting on this little blog.  I have other things to do like laundry.  I guess I've been a bit bored.  I have several ideas on saving money and I forgot to write them down so I didn't post them.

But here is one:

IF your local Dollar Tree sells the newspaper the most it will cost you is....tada......$1.00!!!  
Unless, of course, it is an everyday edition, that will cost you about fifty cents.  Depending on how much your local newspaper charges.

I was happy to find out this bit of information because the local Huntsville Times has scaled back to publishing only three or four days per week AND increased the cost of one Sunday paper to $2.00.

If you buy, say, two papers a week, that is $8.00 - $16.00 per month for papers alone!!  If you buy more, then it is more money or if the paper charges more, it is more money, too.  It can get to the point that buying papers for coupons isn't really saving any money.  

Is this registering?  I know what I'm saying but wondering if it is coming out right on this post.  Grin.

So, in summary, go to Dollar Tree, buy the Sunday paper, pay $1.00.  Go to another store or buy one from the box, it will cost you double, or $2.00 per paper.

There, that should do it.

Yes, I know he needs a shirt.

Yes, I know it is an old song.

However, you can understand every word the man sings!!!  No mean lyrics, no profanity, no guns, no violence.

It's okay, I like it!

This song makes me happy, makes me want to dance and forget the past!  

So, I do.

This is from Pinterest.  I just have a question.


I am older, senior citizen, but still, really?!

INSOMNIA is in the house!  I am a night owl, have been for years.  I love staying up late, surfing the web, doing a craft, piddling around then dragging myself to bed.  I also like sleeping late.  There is a difference between staying up for fun and staying up because you cannot fall asleep.  

One is fun and fulfilling.  The other is boring and wears a body out.  

I've always thought I would like to work a late shift at some job and then sleep all day.  Sounds wacko, I know, but I seem to function so much better at night than I do in early mornings.  This girl is not a morning person, never ever even in my vocabulary.  One big ugh!

Life takes many different turns.  Those turns go up hill and downhill with surprises or disappointments all along the way.  Sleep is necessary for the journey but when it's one of those nights that sleep does not come,  the turns of life seem to stay front focus and the old brain just keeps churning away about thoughts of the day, plans for the next or disappointments that dog us.

So, on a night that insomnia is present, I wonder...

Wouldn't it be cool if humans had an on-off switch?

December 7, Pearl Harbor Day and my mother-in-law's birthday although she passed away several years ago RIP, Juanita Mae, still trying to figure out how to rid the yard of those pesky moles, why is this house crumbling,  how many days till Christmas is it anyway?

See the things that rattle the brain cells in the middle of the night?  Yeah an on-off switch would be a nice invention.
