    That's a great deal GuardianAngel. I remember reading somewhere that making improvements on your kitchen and your bathroom really increases the selling value of your home, so it should pay off in the end.

    Awesome, don't you just LOVE saving money like that and still getting what you want? Hope it turns out as you hope!

    Very true. We put about $10,000 into our house (plus a lot of labour - did everything ourselves), and it is now worth $150,000 more than we paid for it. Granted, we bought it seven years ago, but still, that's a nice return on our investment.

    I have a couple of things to be grateful for.

    First of all, though I don't have a regular teaching job I have gotten so many long terms this year that I have only had one day off since August. I am working through Spring Break right now and hope this continues to the end of June.

    Secondly, my ancient phone died last week and because I hadn't upgraded in years I had a great discount towards a new phone and got an iPhone. My last phone couldn't even text!

    So one superficial thanks and one much more serious.

    Nice to hear from JLuvs and inthegarden with such good news! I know how much having a job means. We still have tough times ahead in my state and our schools are getting wiped out, especially library jobs, but a few people have retired so I may be able to hang on to my regular hours next year.

    Jluvs: Hope your job last as long as you are hoping for! Discounts are a wonderful thing especially when it comes to cell phones.

    My daughter found out this week that she was accepted to work at Yellowstone Nat'l Park this summer! She will be cooking for the Lake Hotel. I had expressed to my siblings that I might try to go out to see her, but my brother said you have to book a couple years in advance there. I may call anyway and ask if they have anything, any time this summer.
    Count your blessings!

    There are bound to be cancellations, I'd think. And your daughter may meet a connection who knows a guy who's connected to ....
