Enjoying what I can't control

Friday, February 01, 2013

So right now we are hard up financially. We both have jobs we just got but they start in the next couple weeks and then it will take 2 more to be paid. Also my husband is still not on our foodstamps even though he lost his job so we don't quite get enough to feed us all, especially not healthy stuff. So lately, while we wait for more stamps to hit the card on the 9th, we have just been eating wherever we can for free. Today that meant taking my husband's aunt who is waiting for a new hip out to the bank and the store. She in turn was going to buy the kids lunch. She wanted McDonald's soooo it is what it is. I just had fish bites but still. She also got us a few things in the store: mac n cheese, white bread, veggie hotdogs, chocolate for the kids and beer as a thank you for me and my husband. SOOOO I am just gonna thank the universe for her generosity, eat til I am full today and get back on track tomorrow. The upside is my aunt is gonna buy me new walking shoes and more protein powder! I have had to stop walking because my only shoes are a pair of off-brand pretend crocs from wal greens that i have been wearing for almost 4 years now. Walking too much in them makes my arches cramp up because my toes curl trying to grip the shoe so it will quit falling off. I am so so excited about this. Not just because I can get back to my work of healing my body but also because it means someone believes in me enough to invest in my health. It gives me hope :)
