(not my pic, mine isn't this pretty because I scraped the top off of it while it was cooking and ate it because I couldn't stand smelling it anymore!)

Let's talk about the food crisis that is suppose to be happening soon. I know in the past I've mentioned I am going to stockpile some things before they went up. Well I didn't and now rice has doubled. Hello! We eat rice all the time. And the good chewy brown rice is way way more. So today I am headed to the dreaded Walmart to stockpile $100 worth of dried beans, rice, pasta, sugar, flour and some canned items. Food is increasing more than the measly 3% I am earning in my ING account.
I've also reevaluated my finances and where all my money sits. I took out a Heloc a couple of weeks ago (now I'm like most people, hooray for mortgages - not!) to pay off my margin account with etrade because the interest was too high. My Heloc is 5.25%. My ING account earns 3%. I can pull cash off the Heloc whenever I want to by internet or phone. So does it still make sense to have a lot of cash sitting in the ING account earning 3% when I could be paying off a debt at 5.25%? I say no it doesn't and cancel out the ING accounts. Anyone else have a different thought?
Natalie is quickly approaching the terrible twos I think. All you hear around the house is "2 minutes!" When she flips out and tries to do a tantrum she gets put in her crib for her 2 minute time out. Sometimes she flips out because she is tired. Sometimes it is in response to my "NO", she must have delicate little feelings. Natalie Elizabeth will set her off in a split second! lol Today she woke up at 7, had a bottle and played on my bed with me for an hour. So at 8, we get up and work in the kitchen for an hour. At 9am, she flips out! Timeout time. But instead of popping up when the microwave timer goes off (she can hear it from her room) she is asleep! How much do your kids sleep? She slept 11.5 hours last night then has to go down for a nap just 2 hours later? It is so hard to do anything on the weekends because she is always asleep!! It sort of hurts my feelings lol She doesn't sleep this much at school, mommy is boring!
This weekend is tax free in TN. I am resiting the urge to buy anything because it's all stuff we don't need. Do I want a new PC? YES YES YES Am I going to buy one? Not right now, maybe for my 35th Bday. It is very tempting.
Bye for now! - Kim
