Too many bills, not enough money = SUCKS. Just keeping it real. You know it is bad when your children say their prayers and they prayer that mommy and daddy will have enough work and money to pay the bills. Things have been changing at our home. For instance, I no longer use Pureology hair care, but Pantene. My children are packing PB&J sandwiches for lunch instead of buying school lunches. We only have basic digital cable now, but I did keep DVR. Blake is my new little 'house boy'. Kind of like a pool boy but for the house. Wait until you see the pictures tomorrow. You will melt.
As Dave and I have assessed our financial situation and the worries that have come with this tough economy, we have grown closer. It is a testament to our eternal marriage. We are partners. In it together. I love him more today than I did yesterday and I didn't think that was possible. Our children are noticing the changes in our home too. They are seeing us borrowing items that we need temporarily instead of purchasing them. We are shopping more sales for necessities, using coupons more and saying "no" more. Speaking of borrowing.....does anyone have a pair of black and white saddle shoes in a size 6 for Kaia's halloween costume?
