Big news!!

We got big exciting news today!!!! Bennie got called back to work! He goes back on Monday.,,, Hallelujah! Thank the Lord! Also another plus,, he will be going back on day shift. So that will be nice. We couldn't be happier.

I have learned a lot in these past 3 weeks. Its amazing how little you spend when you cut out the Unnecessary spending... also we need to be more focused on building our savings account so if something like this happens again,,, which it very well could,,, we can be even more prepared!

Money does not buy happiness,,,, Ben and I have gotten along better in these past couple weeks than ever. The kids haven't even noticed a difference accept for the not eating out,,, but they didn't seem to mind.

My goal now is to continue to live the way we have been in the past couple weeks... It will still be a couple weeks til we see a check anyways so I don't have much of a choice at first. I am going to continue my grocery experiment and see if it is doable.

Thanks to anyone that thought and prayed for us.

That is so great Jill! I think its a good idea about living like you don't have money and saving. Thats something that I wish Johnathon and I had been doing for the past couple of years. You live and learn I guess. Anyway, I am so happy for you guys!

Live and learn is such a true statement!! Sometimes I sit around and think if Ben and I had the knowlege we have now years ago we would be so much farther along in life,, but you cant change the past so there is no reason to beat ourselves up about it. What matters is what we do now, and how we apply our knowlege in our lives now.
