It's been almost 2 weeks since we have gotten our first dose of the Moderna vaccine. Our older daughter has been staying with us since last summer, but she is not old enough to get a vaccine and is still has to wait. We were told we will have to wait till it is announced that we can get the second dose, although with hearing about side effects, I am in no hurry. I would like to hear if you have gotten the vaccine, which one, how many doses have you had and how, or if you had a reaction.

We bought a used car a few weeks ago- a 2014 Ford Fusion. We were looking for something we could tow behind the RV this year, since we had sold the SUV. Although  I have another older car, it is too rusted up underneath to add a base plate to it to tow, and our truck has too much weight. Now we find out we cant get a base plate for the newer car to tow it, as they aren't made for that make/model,  and have to buy a dolly. Already have a used one lined up to buy. Trying to see our older tow bar and tow defender, but it's not so easy to sell . Not like it's something everyone wants one of!  LOL-  We will out the older car up for sale once our daughter leaves.

I don't know about you but I am finding the price of groceries getting crazier all the time. We are feeding 3 adults and a dog that I swear can out me! I think we all need any grocery saving tips we can get. Living in the north as we do, doesn't help either. We are an isolated community and pay the price for it. No Dollar Store here for us, Costco, etc.. so we do our best. The folks at Urban Tastebud offer 84 simple ways to help you save money on groceries .
