Time to tighten the belt!

Well, the recession has finally hit us! John got a 10% paycut in January, Yellow and Roaway are now one company and he has only had 15 minute..yes minutes..of OT this week!!!! During a normal week he would have had at least 8 already! *sigh* It is going to be a tough month around here! At least the girls are off track as of Monday and I won't be driving to the school multiple times a day, but man oh man, it's going to suck around here quick! I am going to do a pick shop this week and stick to a menu...for all 3 meals I think! He says after a few weeks the computers should "catch up" with everything ad then it should go back to normal...I will be praying for that one!

I think I will be using the bread machine a lot this month for sure too, I can't stand paying almost $3 for a cheap loaf of's infuriating! I cannot wait until I have the space for a garden...I will be so excited when that day comes!

With all the depressing $$ talk I don't really have anything else on my mind, I know there is lots to talk about, but I just can't get past the fact that we are right back where we were 3 years ago, as far as our income! Oh how I wish this economy would turn around!!!!
