Bills, and other stuff!

We just got our tax bill today. They raised it 500.00! Cripes! But we have 2.5 acres of land, but still we live in the freakin boonies! 2400.00!! We also got our pre-buy bill for fuel. It is going to cost us about 1000.00 more than last year. I have been trying to think of ways we can cut back. I just don't know how people are going to do it? I feel bad for the older people. Everything has gone up. Ugh.

I am glad that we have a garden, we are getting zucchini and cucumbers like crazy now. Meghan loves cucumbers, as do I. They are so good when fresh! Plus no points! Yum! So far we have one pumpkin, and it is getting huge! I really hope we have more than one because the kids would fight over it. LOL

I can't believe that I am not going to have anymore kids! It just seems so weird to me. But realistically I know we can't. The way the economy is going, we wouldn't be able to afford it, if we plan on helping with college too. It just makes me sad to know that Hayley is my last one. :( Maybe that is why I haven't moved her out of my room yet. Yes that's right, she is still in my room in her bassinet. Man, the time flies!! I can't believe she is already 3 months old. Knock on wood, she has been sleeping through the night for 2 weeks.

For once we don't have many plans this weekend. We are going to a birthday party tomorrow night and that's about it. My in-laws are supposed to come up next week, and I REALLY want the basement finished. We will hit a year in October. Seriously it needs to get done. I am at the end of my rope. Especially lately because it has rained pretty much everyday here, and if the basement was done, the kids could go down there and play. UGH!!!!

I love your new layout!

I know what you mean about last babies. According to my dh, Cate is our last and it makes me very sad. I'd really love one more.

I wish we'd planted a bigger garden! I only have two tomato plants.

Please let me know if you need any help with the basement! Put me to work! Seriously, its the least I can do for everything you've done/do for me!!

Makayla was in our room until she was 7 or 8 months old. I just couldn't let go of the "baby" in here, knowing she was my last. :( It is sad...
