Grease
Sara
Good morning and welcome to Week 7 of Project Money!  It’s time to put on our dance shoes and listen to the sounds of some early Rock and Roll. “Summer lovin’ had me a blast. Summer lovin’ happened so fast.” These words may sound familiar as they come from the 1971 musical, Grease. Seven years later, in 1978, the film made its debut with Olivia Newton John, playing Sandy Olsson, as the Australian exchange student who falls in love with leather-clad Danny Zuko, played by John Travolta.

Keeping it simple!
Jaclyn and Kiara
Let’s start by saying Happy Birthday Jaclyn! We had a wonderful time celebrating Jaclyn’s 29th birthday. We finally started using our dining out budget and spent a whole $10 dollars at Denny’s for breakfast. It’s not much but it is a start. I think our main concern is falling back into old habits. I think we are thinking that if we eat out once, we will get use to the convenience that it offers and will go back to spending hundreds of dollars on take-out food. But the occasion called for us to splurge a little because we deserve it, right?

The toughest week so far…
Angie and Cris
As I’m sure everyone knows, we had very difficult week here in Sun Prairie.  The explosion that leveled a large area of our historic downtown, and the loss of one of our local heroes, has hit this community very hard. We were lucky enough to be just far enough away to not sustain any damage and not have to evacuate our home – being one block from the evacuation zone, but there are many others who are now homeless and have lost everything in the fires that followed the explosion.

K-9 Kids
Megan and Scott
As of about a month ago, an opportunity arose and we adopted a 12 year old Labrador, Ike. Please note that our family total now is two human adults and three senior citizen yellow labs! About a week after we adopted Ike, we learned that he would need *at least* one tooth pulled. He had a sensitive mouth and the veterinarian was unable to determine if more would need to be removed.

Tomorrow
Sara
Hello Project Money Week 6! Allow me to reminisce once again. When I was about 10 or 11 years old, my parents took me to a production of Annie, the musical based on the Harold Gray comic strip Little Orphan Annie, in Ames, Iowa. Like many others, I was enthralled from the very beginning. In fact, I loved the musical so much that I started collecting both Little Orphan Annie memorabilia and merchandise from the movie version that came out shortly after in 1982.  I still have my collection today.
