When life gives you lemons.

Forget lemonade, I'm making margaritas!  It has been a topsy turvy year for the Scott family (hence the lack of posting).  This summer, Kevin lost his job.  It was a stressful time, to be sure, but it turned out to be the best thing that happened to our family this year.

Yep, that's right.  Unemployment was the best thing that happened.  Kevin was working for a company on contract for over 18 months.  He worked his ass off for them and they let him go when he told them he wanted to be hired on full time.  You see, they didn't want to pay for his drugs.  After only five weeks of unemployment, Kevin found a better job that included benefits.  So, starting December 7th, we will no longer have to shell out the $600/month to keep Kevin alive.  So better pay, less of a commute, less physical and paid benefits.

I am cautiously optimistic about the future.

Alright, enough of that happy fun stuff.  Let's talk about what's important here....

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is out!  I am dying to play this game but I can't afford it until after Christmas.  I held it in my hands and then I put it back on the shelf.  It almost killed me.  I may have to go rent it, send the kids off for the entire weekend and play nonstop for two days.  Likely to happen?  No.  No it's not.
