It seems like there have been so many times this week that a blog post comes to mind, and I think that I will remember it for Sunday, and now, I don't! I will tell you that these days of Lent are flying by. I don't feel like I am getting enough done spiritually, but there is always room for improvement. I am hoping to post my review of the book I am reading for Catholic Company soon! It is a good one!
Baby girl is getting so big! She will be 6 months on Wednesday. I may have to break my blogging fast to post pictures. She is turning into such a big girl! I have been able to keep up with making all of her baby food. She loves sweet potatoes, squash, peaches and pears. This week, she had avocado for the first time! I read that it is a super food for babies, and she loves it! (With all that good healthy fat in them for brain development, we are trying to see if we can add to the rolls on her legs!). We also were very surprised to have her get her first 2 teeth! The boys were much older (9 and 11 months), so needless to say when I told Andy I though she was getting teeth, he dismissed it. At the dentist this week for cleanings, our hygienist checked out Alex and confirmed my suspicion. Two days later, one broke through. Yesterday, the second arrived.
I am continuing to work at becoming a better saver on just about everything. Andy made me a spreadsheet at the beginning of the year and I am tracking how much I am saving on food, clothing and just about everything you can think of. As of last week, I was at $957 in savings since the first of the year! It is kind of fun to see how much I can save.
We also made a huge change in our house. We purchased one of these. In about a week, we will be eliminating our land line and the cost associated with it. We also switched our cable to satellite and Internet to DSL. All told, our bill will be dropping from $145 per month to $80 per month, a savings of $65! I am so excited about this because I always felt like the cable company really had us, and now they don't! I also dropped the data plan from my cell, not being able to really justify it because of losing my team lead job late last year. That too was a savings of $25 per month. Anyway, bottom line is that I am having fun finding ways to save money!
I miss you all, and wish you a fruitful Lent!
