Going to see Dave Ramsey today!

Thanks to the generosity of our daughter and son-in-law's Christmas gift we get to attend a Dave Ramsey seminar today (Mike calls it a concert... lol!) If you don't know who he is you can read all about him on his site here. In a nutshell he's a Christian guy who made it big fast, lost it all, then learned how to life life, including his budget, from a Biblical standpoint. We gave our daughter and SIL tickets a couple of years ago and they are well on their way to being completely debt-free. Although Mike and I don't use credit cards we would like to learn how to manage our meager salaries a bit better and be confident that when our time comes to retire we'll be prepared.

I know I've promised to post pictures of my newest homemade stamps and probably half a dozen other things that haven't shown up here yet. If you haven't figured this out, this gal is very easily distracted! Perhaps tomorrow I'll get some pictures posted. There's a Yahoo group for the TC Stampmaker that I've joined recently and have received some encouragement from them along with some good tips. Maybe there's hope for me after all!

Our newest addition, Harley the Wire Fox Terrier, is fitting in quite nicely and keeps us on our toes. Do you remember having to childproof your house when you had babies around? Well we're learning all over again what needs to be hidden, latched, and so on. This little guy is very feisty and must stay busy all the time unless he's asleep, so if we aren't entertaining him he finds things to entertain himself, like chewing on our arms or pulling the protective covers off the furniture, or running at full speed past one of the other dogs and snapping at their head or tail (or maybe both). We have spray water bottles in nearly every room and use them when one of the dogs gets out of control. Usually all we have to do is point it at them and they stop dead in their tracks. I suspect that little Harley will actually get to liking that water and treat it as another one of his little games!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Pin It!
