Money is Tight...

Today has been a pleasant day. It's been in the 80's and I have the windows up and a good breeze is blowing thru.

It's been kinda quiet today, my son and hubby slept in and I grabbed a cup of coffe first thing this morning and sat on the back patio just enjoying hearing the birds singing.

Money is a little tight right now...not a big thing, but a bit frustrating. My hubby's paycheck was shorted quite a bit over the past two weeks. Co. forgot to pay him his holiday pay and his overtime. So, he is not a happy camper right now. But this too shall pass.

I have a VERY limited amount of money to spend on groceries this week. But I really don't mind. It challenges me to be really creative with our menu planning and looking for good deals at the store. Luckily, we still have lots of meat in the freezer, so I only need a handful of items to round out our meals. Some things are essential that I buy toilet paper. You know, that's something you just don't want to run out of..hehe.

We will be fine...have been here before and I'm sure that there will be times that we will be here again. God always provides so I'm not worried. I have a roof over my head, food in the house, gas in the vehicles, healthy children, and a husband that loves me very much. What more do I need?

I will leave you with that. I hope everyone has a blessed Friday and a wonderful weekend!!

Being able to skip on buying meat really makes such a huuuuge difference in your phone bill. it's great!

Yes, it does help a lot. We try and buy from a local butcher every two months....I will also buy at the grocery store if it's a really good deal. I was able to buy some Butterball turkey loins for $4.99 each...which are usually $8.99 each.
