Menu Planning?!??

August 31, 2008

We don’t know the first thing about menu planning.  It’s not like we’re going to open a restaurant or anything.  They probably have professionals and chefs to do that.  What we can do is Menu Picking.  That we are good at.  This week we’ll choose Outback Steakhouse.  Mmmm.  Sounds yummy.

Bloomin’ Onion

Ribeye – Medium Rare – Blue Cheese Crown

Chocolate Thunder from Down Under


Our First Day of School

August 30, 2008

Today was our first day of school.  No need for a strict schedule or any fancy shmancy kurickilim kurklikulum cirikulum books and stuff when you’ve got Noggin!  Like they say, “It’s like preschool on TV.”  If you hear it on TV, it’s gotta be true!   We saved so much money.  No cubbies for the kids filled with supplies and future supplies.  We only needed one resource:

The Happy Housewife only had enough material to last the morning.  Her kids played outside in the afternoon.  Not our kids.  They continued to learn morning, noon and night.  Noggin provides 24 hours of endless teaching for pennies a day.  As if that’s not good enough our 6-year-old learned the color blue today thanks to seven hours of Blues Clues!!!


Why settle for happy?

August 30, 2008

Things are about to get serious!

Our good friends at http://thehappyhousewife.com/ have done some good work…so we’re out to do better.  Why would you want to settle for happy when you could be happier?  This (fake) site isn’t going to stop at “happy”…we’re going all the way! 

We don’t want to take anything away from Thehappyhousewife.  Her site is amazing.  Please check it out if you want (serious) advice about managing your money, great home schooling tips and how to feed a family of eight for under $600/month.  We’re going to take a completely different and less realistic approach. 

Everyone knows money buys happiness.  So, we need to either cut costs or bring in more ka-ching.  Instead of taking a responsible approach let’s explore an area Thehappyhousewife has completely ignored: child labor.

For only two easy payments of $19.95 you can be first in line for thehappIERhousewife’s Professional Car Detailing service.  It’s service with a smile and a strong emphasis on safety!
