Things are improving and we're getting on a schedule. J worked hard in therapy yesterday and showed a lot of self-restraint and self-regulating. The AT & I were very impressed.
Thanks to everyone for your emails & comments of concern and suggestions. We are finding many ways to save and going back to many things that my grandmother taught me that she learned during the Depression. It is really turning out to be quite the adventure and we are looking at it as an adventure rather than a punishment. It's all in the attitude.
It is a little scary to think about no insurance but a single mom with no income equals no insurance. It's amazing how dependent I've become on that security blanket but truth be told there's probably more people uninsured today rather than insured and they're getting by and so will we. The comforting thing is that we won't be out of the house more than one day a week so that will drastically reduce the chances of getting a cold or flu.
Some of our cost cutting adventures have included:
1. Reading bedtime stories by candlelight. I highly recommend it!
2. Incorporating more board games played by candlelight are extra special. Fun!
3. Reusing coffee grounds.
4. Baths by candlelight (who wouldn't love this?!)
5. Soup beans (a/k/a Great Northern) and cornbread (dinner for less than $1.00) Bringing back wonderful memories of my grandmother.
Tonight...cornmeal gravy. Yummy!
Do you have and favorite/fun ways to save????
