This and That

I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.

Donald Driver

 I really appreciate this man.  He's is actually an athlete that kids can look up to and learn from.  He isn't afraid to thank God first before anyone else for the blessings in his life.  In today's world it isn't often that athletes who make a lot of money thank God for what they have been blessed with.  Donald has a wonderful work ethic, does a lot for charities and those less fortunate than he, loves his family, can dance, has one heck of a smile AND appreciates what an organization like the Green Bay Packers has done for him.  

He's stil a young man and has many, many years to continue to make Packer fans proud of him.  And, he will.

Let Me Tell You About Our Carnival Cruise from Hell

 Back in the late 90's we booked a cruise on the Carnival mid-sized ship - The Tropicale.  It was an older ship but still going strong.  This would be our second cruise - the first cruise was on a beautiful ship called the Royal Majesty and was not a Carnival ship - a slightly larger ship than the Tropicale.  

A few months before we were to take our cruise on the Tropicale, the ship was in the middle of the ocean when one of her engines caught fire.  It crippled the ship and the ship was right in the path of a tropical storm that was headed towards the ship.  Long story short, the ship got back to port and all cruises up to ours were cancelled.  We were assured that the ship would be in tip top shape mechanically and clean and ready to set sail.   We were a bit concerned and hesitant but decided not to cancel our vacation on the ship.
