Our family is counting down to November like we never have before. You’d think November 1st was a holiday or something. I do not plan to rush out and buy everything the kids want. I think it would be neat to continue and see how long we could go without using our regular income, but I’m sure I would be outvoted. We still have quite a bit of food in the pantry and freezer, so I will plan several meals that don’t require us to purchase many groceries.
The kids and I met my sister and her kids at her oldest daughter’s marching band competition this afternoon. I had to pay $10 for Big Brother and me to get in, but my sister gave me $5, so it only cost me $5.
It had been a long time since I watched a live performance by a marching band. I got so emotional! I am proud of my niece and her high school band, and just for those few minutes, I missed marching in the band. My kids enjoyed hanging out with their cousins for awhile.
- We all went to school/work today and took our lunches.
- I made Cajun chicken pasta, green beans, corn, and hot rolls for dinner. I’ll eat the leftover rolls for breakfast the next three days.
- I sold an item through our online garage sale for $3. Two other women were supposed to come buy stuff but never showed. One is coming tomorrow.
