Relay for Life 2012

Hi All!

I am joining Relay for Life and The American Cancer Society again this year.  I am fundraising for the event representing my school at the Relay.

I have lost a father-in-law and grandmother to cancer.  I am happy with this organization and for what they do for people living with this terrible disease and seeking a cure.  When you give, you are helping to supply people with cancer "More Birthdays!" 

Please give if you is the link to my page:

Happy Mother's Day! 2012

Happy Mom's Day to all the Moms and Moms-to-be out there!

I hope you all have had a terrific day!

My hubby and kids gave me two gift for Kohl's and one for Michael's!  Both are terrific.  With the Kohl's card...I found my son some new sneakers and I still have $10 left for myself later on.  I will probably purchase a new pair of yoga pants for the gym.  With the Michael's card (I haven't spent just yet) but will probably try to purchase a bookcase (raw wood one..small) if they have it.  If know it is going to be jewelry supplies for supplies for my art room!  I am happy with what I have purchased and what I plan to purchase with the gift cards. I do not intend to waste a dime of it.

We also enjoyed church this morning.  The message was about what a "Real Woman" is...I hope they have this in an was a very good message and much of it would surprise you and not so predictable.  It was excellent.  My church's website, should you be interested in attending online, is: !  The live feed for Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings is:   If you can find today's message in is well worth watching.  They all are..but I really enjoyed today's!

As far as a financial update...we are doing fine...still battling that credit card I keep bringing up but it is looking better and better all the time.  Even though we paid a lot on it two months in a row and it says $0 due...we still pay the old requested amount to stay ahead so in future months should there be one that is difficult...we can skip a payment then or simply pay it off quicker!
Have a great week and Month of May!
I am a teacher and this month in the world of Schools is action packed with testing, ending classes, closing down classrooms, etc... It may be June before I can give another update!
Thank you for being a loyal Thrifty and Creative Reader!
