    Thanks for the offer, my uncle is a geneology buff and has had real success on Ancestry.com. He does the same thing as you, subscribes for a while, then goes to the free site (myheritage.com) and invites everyone to add their stuff. That is a really cool site! And it sends notifications of birthdays and anniversaries if you want it to. My uncle has that tree very nicely filled out going in all directions. I hope to take some time this summer and add my husband's family info. DH's dad did the research, before internet access made it a reasonable hobby!

    My aunt is a geneology buff. She loves it. Not sure if she has an ancestry.com account or not. I'd like to do it someday, but with the other irons in my fire, it has to wait. I'd like to eventually do a scrapbook of our family, to extend beyond grandparents if possible. I've been saving things about family members for the future. I saved the little booklets they give you at funerals. Figured those would be nice in a scrapbook.

    TGIF...and I truly mean it. This was one very difficult week with the arrest of one of my colleagues, more "Race to the Top" BS paperwork, and the joy of car buying.

    You may be thinking "Oh c'mon, you got a new car". While that is true and I am thrilled with it, I had to humble myself and eat crow to get it. In the end, though the car is quality and worth the list price, I know that I did not get a "great" deal due to my poor credit.
    Starting in January, I am going to be reporting here on my debt reduction and credit score raising program. The goal, of course, is to be able to refinance my car by the summer. : )

    The "Eat Moar Fat" program is going incredibly well. Full report on the first week Sunday morning.

    My sympathies on the hard parts of car buying. I don't want to relive it, even to vent, so I'll just say: I feel your pain. Let's put it behind us!

    I am doing a monthly money goals support meeting with two of my friends this coming year. With income again, and some extra, I'm looking to build up our savings in a serious way. It was too scary this time, getting so close to the bone. One friend wants to get on top of some medical bills, and the third is trying to get to retirement sooner than 70. We're all using some or all of Dave Ramsey's methods, and it will be good to check in with each other, to help us stay on track.

    So glad the 'Eat Moar Fat' is off to a good start.

    Congratulations on the new car. Gorgeous picture (and the car looks pretty good, too)!

    Sorry to hear about all the other issues, hopefully things will settle down soon.

    Awesome.

    TGIF!!

    You definitely deserve a TGIF.

    Financially, we won't be able to do any kind of savings until this time next year(Chapter 13 will be done and paid off). Plus, with the way Clint's job is looking, him getting a second job may be the key to survival(just getting by). He's one of the few people at the shop to have over 30 hours for the week. Last week, he was the only one who had 50 hours. Even though this is the slow season, its dead. Most of the guys are either looking for a second job or looking for a new full time job entirely. I've even thought about getting a second job, but Clint said that shouldn't be my responsibility, it should be his.

    You seem very relieved, which is good to hear, as opposed to stressed. "TGIF" should be about letting go of the week-time's worries and embracing some celebration and relaxation times for the weekend. It sounds like that's where you're at
