A casual acquaintance told me that he is the youngest of 10 children, and grew up in Ireland.  His mother raised those 10 children in a house with no running water … Continue reading Feeling Thankful. ...

You may have noticed it’s been a little quiet on Greener Pasture$ for a few weeks.  That’s because we’re sucking… totally sucking… at reaching the lofty goals we set for ourselves, and I’ve been embarrassed to show my anonymous face here.  Why would anyone want to read a personal finance blog by someone who can’t … Continue reading The long and winding road ...

Summer was rough on the olde budget.  July was horrible, but I chalked it up to the fact that I gave birth to our second child that month, and we were off our normal routines.  Then, somehow, August was even worse.
