I had to go often to see her so she would feels comfortable. She is now home and seems to be better.
With the economy like it is in So. Calif anyway, we are going thru the process of losing our house. We have been here for 11 years. It stinks. We already went thru a mortgage reduction process and the bank really never gave us any breaks. So for the past month, we have been looking around our area for apartments. We will have to downsize to a 2 bedroom place. I have to give up a lot of my furniture. I do plan to sell my stove and refrigerator. I hope to bring my own washer/dryer with me. There is a very nice place that has a garage with it, so I hope my washer/dryer fits. There are no openings yet. There are a few more places we have looked at that are also nice. So we really have 3 or 4 to chose when one of them become available.
My husband makes very good money. We are not ones to just buy stuff and we have no credit cards. So where did it all go? I think the Lord is showing us we can live with a lot less. We do anyway since I am a stay at home mom/homeschooler. In today's economy, it is hard to make it with one paycheck. Our cars are even paid for. So I take this as an opportunity to see just how thrifty we can be.
Don't get me wrong here, I don't want to say the wives out there have to work, but I do believe most of us are called to be in the home. Just my opinion. And you have to remember, I did my "time" working right out of high school and did my 25 years. That is a funny story....it was with the same bank as our mortgage....LOL
So, I am still here and homeschooling Amy. I love it. We are doing a new program on line thru Learning by Grace. There are no books, justs e-books on line. There are some DVD's and other web sites to go and learn extra about whatever you are learning. It is Christian based and every day your homepage starts with a devotional. I really like that. We go thru that together and it is sweet times.
