It has been a busy last few days. I really enjoyed the freedom that not working has given me. I was able to go out of town with my DH on a business trip. While he worked, I got to play, this was so cool. This was one of the first business trip that I wasn't the one doing all the work and keeping the long hours. It was my dream that I could stay home and not worry to much about money. There were days when it seemed as if it cost more to go to work than what I was making. We planned long and hard for this day, but even with the planning I stopped working a little a head of the plan. It still worked out alright, because it wasn't a surprise.

One of the first thing we planned for was to have a good food storage that was to our family's needs. We also know just how much money we have and what we need to use each month. But the two biggest things we ever did was paid off
our house that we live in now and we have no credit cards. So if tomorrow cames and there were no jobs, no money coming in, we will have a place to live and food to eat. That makes it easy to sleep at night.

For now we are taking one day at a time, enjoying the cool weather and getting ready to look for fall apples to add to our pantry. So until we meet again. ~~~smiles~~~
