You know the game Frogger? Where you’re a frog and you try to get from one side of the road to the other without getting ran over? Well, I know where they got the idea! Driving home tonight from grocery shopping I saw tons of frogs lined up on the side of the road and when I got near enough to see them in my headlights they would jump into the road! I couldn’t believe it! I also saw one jumping back away from the road (smart frog!). I just hope those frogs won at the game instead of my car.

I went and did our monthly grocery shopping at Wal-Mart tonight. It’s the cheapest place in town. Our fridge, freezer and pantry were pretty much bare except some pizza and random veggies. It’s weird doing a months worth of groceries, I’m still trying to figure out what all we need to last a month so I’m not going ever week. We still get milk and bread about once a week though.

Anyways, there weren’t many check-out lanes open, so I got behind a lady whose buggy was as full as mine, and it went fast! I was having a hard time keeping up with putting my items on the conveyor as I had room. Then the checker was really fast at getting all my stuff through too and for me to pay. After I got all my bags and paid I told the lady “You are really good at this job!” I seriously am impressed…I’ve never been impressed checking out anywhere. So when I said that she said, “Then go tell customer service for me.” At first I didn’t take her serious, but as I was about to walk away I asked for her name and said I do want to give her a compliment. So I went and waited about 5 minutes before I could speak to someone, and turns out they do recognize their employees who are complimented on doing a great job. So thank you Linda for being so friendly and great at your job!

Update on our Total Money Makeover. I finished the book this morning, and Tim is 1/3 of the way through it, starting this afternoon. We don’t have TV anymore and took our credit cards out of our wallets thanks to Tim. Tim canceled Rhapsody today so we don’t have our free music, but God has already blessed us. There is a free downloading music thing (Tim blogged about it.) that Tim has been waiting to become available, and it did today! Thank you God! Tim listens to music all the time at home, so I was impressed they he volunteered to turn it off. And we thought we would get the basic channels on tv at least…I tend to watch a lot of TV, but we don’t have any TV at all right now, but I have some shows recorded from before it was turned off. My fitness membership isn’t canceled yet ’cause no one was at the desk today, so Tim will have to go during the week during office hours when someone is available.

It is so nice that Tim and I agree on finances. And it is so exciting to know that we will be debt free soon!

    Dana,
    You’ll find out that working together and placing your finances in God’s hands will be a sacrificial joy and blessing in the end. With us through the years, Jason has been such a faithful provider and me learning to spend and budget just what he makes has allowed me to be a full time homemaker. Being there to visit school all week long, being involved in the PTA . Being room Mom for both of there classes is memories I will always cherish.I love being the “Mom Taxi” for practices and games. We have never made alot of money (Compared to today’s standards) but to God’s standards we are never wanting. He makes the budget and I just faithfully follow. Through the years adding more and more household things to make life a little more enjoyable, I always see and thank Him! As for no tv, we went through not having cable to after we were married. We enjoyed going to the library and checking out videos to watch. You may want to check that out too, now a days you can look up DVDs availability on line at your local library and reserve them on line. Timmy can also get some music there too. I’m proud of you two. God will bless you in so many ways through faithfully letting go and letting Him!!!
    Love,
    Kym
