We found ourselves without any milk this morning. With three children who together consume at least a half-gallon of milk a day, this was a major problem. Big Brother had to do without this morning, but I couldn’t imagine sending the little ones to Mother’s Day Out for the day with no milk, so I took their thermoses, and we stopped by the store on our way to the church. It felt odd to be in a store again after not going shopping at all for a week, and it was even more strange to pay with cash. I usually use our debit card, but I’ve been thinking we should try Dave Ramsey’s envelope system. I think it would keep us on track after this month is over. Anyway, I spent $8.67 on milk, and all was right again in our little world.
We ate lunch at home as usual, and I put a beef chuck roast in the crockpot this morning and then added potatoes and carrots this afternoon. Our house smelled so good when we got home from gymnastics. I really should use my crockpot more often.
I have exciting news that I must wait until tomorrow to share, but I’ll just say that I’m excited that I will be bringing home a paycheck again in the near future!
