stop watching HGTV?

I have another hairbrained idea. I want to create a funky (lime green with brown glaze wash) frame for my flat screen tv. (keep in mind that the flat-screen in question is all of 19") Yesterday I took my piece of MDF to a lumber yard for a quote on how much it would be to have them use crown moulding to frame out the MDF. The guy literally rolled his eyes at me and told me to stop watching HGTV and getting crazy ideas. I'm sorry, it's housewifes with crazy ideas that is keeping you guys in business!

p.s. Mandy left early today, so no talky blog this week. I'm hoping to return to them next week. We are still on a semi-summer break. In the next few weeks though, I will be launching a whole new website that will be very cool.

Also, the reason there haven't been any pictures is we still haven't fixed the usb port issue with my camera. I may need to bite the bullet and get a new one. Does anyone have a favorite point-and-shoot?

UGH, Credit Card debt

Dave and I have been working furiously to get out of credit card debt, and hopefully will soon be bringing back the popular "Finance Friday" talky blogs...anyway, I found this today. It will tell you how long it will take you to pay off your credit cards if you only pay the minimum balance, and exactly how much you will pay in interest over that time.

This may just be the boost I need to stay in attack mode!

Yes, I've been slacking a bit on the blogosphere. I actually have been enjoying the lazy daisy days of summer and working on a few projects. I do have tons of pictures, but every time I try to put them in the computer it warns me that the usb is overloaded or something. I have been simply too lazy to figure it out, but I thought I should stop in and let you know I am alive and kickin and will get back to this blogging thing soon!
