May Flowers...

The month is off to a bang!

I got a ride to a friend's house about 1 1/2 hours from here last weekend. One of the main reasons that I went was to get a good look at their land. They own quite a bit of land and are planning to sell of some plots to friends and family. Hubby & I are interested in getting around 5 or 6 acres for our own little homestead. It was a nice trip, even if I did spend more than I wanted to on food. One lesson learned: NEVER order the buffet until you see the price! This particular buffet was $13! I could have eaten a lot better meals for that amount of money!

This week is my last week on the job. My final day is tomorrow. I have applied for a few other work-from-home companies. I interviewed with one today. They are a 'parent' company to my current employer. I am qualified for any position that they may have so I'm going through the processes to see if I can get that position. It is part time, roughly 25 hours per week, and I will be working early morning hours. Wish me luck! While this is not making as much as I was making in the workforce, it does eliminate our need for so much gasoline (25 miles into the city each way) or fancy clothing. It also makes me feel better to know that I can hopefully make some money without having to see about getting my disability setup.

I've been making an effort to cook dinner every night this week. While it does not sound like much, this has really helped us. We haven't had to even thought about fast food. Fast food is a bad habit we'd gotten into lately. Hopefully soon, cooking will become second nature.
