No Thank You Evil

So I haven't played this with the kids (now 9 and almost 7)in a long time. Went on to try a couple other systems to no luck. Kids found the book when was looking for something else in my RPG bookshelf and started asking if they could make characters again just for fun. 

I said sure but this time I'm not helping and I asked my 9 year old to read the rules for himself and figure out how to do it. So he did just that, he would ask me questions and I told him to read the rules. If he truly got stuck on some part I helped him out but he made his robot and helped his younger sister make her princess. After a couple of busier days we finally got to play tonight.
My daughter had one of those toys that go on your fingers and you say the number and open and close it that many timed and repeat it a couple of times to reveal something under it. I got a silly one that beavers had invaded the public library.

So enter Storia through Behind the Bookshelf and they headed to the library and met Little Miss Margaret outside, a short 4 foot human lady with exceptional hearing, she is the head librarian after all and she heard them coming a day away. She tells them the issue which got a couple of chuckles when they realized what I did. I own one of those foldable Pathfinder-Flip-Mat (affiliate link) and I drew the entrance.

Yes beavers had invaded the library. Once they decided to go in, My daughter says, "I say hi" which Little Miss Margaret promptly says, "shhhh" and laughter ensued. After drawing the rest of the map so they could see where everything was, I placed miniatures down representing the "beavers", it took them a few times to remember them as being beavers, not a snake, or rats, or fire, etc. Well they decided to take out the beavers, no talking to them or anything they attacked. My daughter had some issues deciding what she wanted to do, she needed a little coaxing and both myself and my son gave her some suggestions. When they got down to 3 I had a few more come out of a hole in the wall where they combined together to form Beavertron. Yes you heard right.

Oh and Little Miss Margaret wasn't so little, she touched a amulet around her neck a big suit of power armor formed around her and she only took up the chest part (which was clear) where you could see her pulling levers and stepping on pedals to control the suit. This caused the kids to laugh a little.

Of course they won the day which left them wanting more. My son continued to ask to play for next couple of days but always at the most inopportune times. I enjoy his enthusiasm and I hate saying not right now but he tends to have a one track mind sometimes and doesn't stop.

I hope to continue their chronicles and show their progress as we go. Until then if you would like more information on No Thank You Evil you can go here.

End of Year Post 2018...why not?!

It's been a hot minute!

Lots has happened this year. I'll tell ya about it someday. Not today.

Today, I'd like to share a fun pastime with ya! After listening to Pastor Michael's sermon at Prairie Harvest Christian Life Centre yesterday morning, I was inspired to dive in with my Word of the Year (WOTY). I've done this for a many years now, but have slacked this year due to some health issues.

Pastor Michael shared some 2018 top New Year Resolutions. He remarked that out of all the resolutions (with the top 3 being --> lose weight, stop smoking, & learn a new skill!), no one said they wanted to grow closer to God. That made me stop and rethink my own personal "GOALS" not resolutions for the upcoming year!


I went home and thought hard on a new set of goals I wanted...


Likewise, after liste…

The Electric Bill (follow up)

Just a quick follow up to the electric bill that came up last month. As of October 20th (today) the full amount of the Septembers bill has been paid (over $420).
Now mind you Octobers bill has not been fully paid ($181) yet; but taking care of the large bill that was due at the end of September was the main priority so we did not go more then 30 days overdue as they generally don't like it if you do and if we got to that point where we were 60 days overdue I would have to contact them to schedule payments so they knew we were trying to recover from being behind and when to expect the payments so they wouldn't have to threaten us with cutting our power.

YNAB after 4 months

Four Month Update
We have been using YNAB for a little over 4 months now, I won't lie and say we are rolling in the dough and that using this software has made us all of a sudden have a ton of money in the bank. What I can say though is that we: Have a more solid plan to pay down our credit cards and have paid down more than $2,000 in credit card debt between the 3 cards (half that on one card alone).Paid a huge (un)expected electric bill ($400 extra). Were able to budget for a little under $450 in dental bills for the kids (in about 6 weeks time) and will continue adding to that budget category so we will have the money for their next appointments in 6 months.Started putting money in our Christmas gifts category which gave us a short time to budget for this expected expense that comes up every year.Have been able to tithe. Have a better understanding of where our money is going each month.All this without going into the overdraft since we started in July.
YNAB Reports Now that we …
