Mysti was wondering so I am sure others are also, why I do so much for my grown children? I do it because, my parents were not there for me. My mom was too busy dealing with my father and brothers problems and they were severe. I learned early on not to ask. I am sure I asked all the time but I rarely got help as I came into my teenage years. I know she tried but her own problems just took over. I floundered through early college and life set up and I needed help. I told myself I would be there for my kids.
Hubbies parents always, always moved us. The first 10 years we were married we moved 11 times. I think they were very generous with this as they are the cheapest most selfish people I know, but they were so afraid I would leave their son who had lost yet another job. We always had to move to find a less expensive situation as hubby had no work. He was always the first one let go, laid off, you get the picture. His parents did not want him back and they did not want the stigma of divorce (heaven forbid). I guess it is a family thing. I do it because I want to help, he does it as he sees it as tradition. But if we did not have any resources we could say we could not. I will not go into debt for this, I will just cut back somewhere else. I know I over indulge my children. Baby steps, baby steps....
I just looked in the freezer, which is a mess( it will be a Carla challenge) and I don't beleive we have much in the way of meat. I have a lot of frozen fruit from the trees out back. I will have to dig. This is from eating out of the pantry the last month.
We are going to have so much fun this next month. Read Carla's blog she is under fire also. that makes this challenge all the easier. I can see it now we will all be together splitting the same bean like Micki Mouse and Pluto!
So here is a picture of my first challenge it is small, but you have to start somewhere, right?
The infamous kitchen junk drawer! Do you think I can get anything else in there? I bet you can't wait to see tomorrows picture, right?
