Okay, big downer, bills. I mean I'm a big Dave Ramsey fan. We follow a budget, well we try to anyway. I do my best, but it's difficult. It seems right when I get in a groove of paying everything down, I need a cat scan or something unexpected. Brain is fine, by the way.

Well, those of you facing the first of the month bills.... I understand. Keep up the good work. Of coarse today in my reading was Proverbs 31. The Jesus of women. I just can't compete with that lady... I have no fields to buy with all my extra earnings today. I have a few hospitals to call to ask if a payment plan of.... $10 a month sounds good..hee...hee.

That's all, I need to sulk for a minute. Anybody need a faithful van to buy? I have one. Ella named her star. She's looking for a good home.

I feel for you. We are now 7 people living on 1,700/month in Southern Ca. I beat myself up every month because I think I should be able to pay everything and figure out a way to make this work. Like I have that kind of power :) Other times I dont want to pay anything because it is depressing to look and see that there isnt enough. God is good and ever faithful. I believe that, but I don't ever want to take it for granted either.

Does it help to remind yourself of the sacrifices that you're making in caring for your children? Sometimes I remind myself that I could go make lots of money and pay someone else to do what I am doing here. It helps my heart a little, but Id much rather have both :)
BTW-I tink that you're funny :)

Wow, how do you do it? My husband is from Cali, and we just couldn't make it work there on one income. You should come to my side of the pond. It's much cheaper, but that said, so cal needs Christians. I'm glad people like you are there.

I'd rather be with less and home than more and away any day... The kids won't remember wearing hand me downs, they will remember me, time, fun...i hope.. but really, less in this country is sooo much. My house is bursting at the seams with too much.

Sometimes being an adult is so hard. I'm with you!!

A place to find encouragement to love your little ones, your husbands and those you come in contact with daily. Two does not have to be terrible. These are years to grow not simply get through!
