December Daily 2017 ~ Day 1

It's been 9 months since I have blogged. 9 months where all my thoughts have kind of swirled in my head but were never actually written down. 9 months of silence. I actually feel that way. Like I have just held life in but at the same time I was kind of savoring the moments. It has not been an easy 9 months. In all honestly, I have changed a lot in that time. Life has changed a lot. I won't get it to that now. I remind  myself how important blogging is but life is so stinking busy! It helps me get things off my chest. It helps me remember moments that I don't want to forget. I'd love to say "I am back." I have actually done that quite a few times in the past but I'm not sure how long I'll be back. So...no promises. I am however committed to doing December Daily this year. So for a least a month, I'll be here! ;) I love December Daily. I love looking back at such a busy but wonderful time of our year.

December Daily - Day 1

Our weather is weird right now. It is bitter cold at night but warm during the day. Pretty crazy for December 1st. I love the mornings. The fog on the hillside behind the house. The frost on the grass and everything in sight. 

 



Money. I wonder why it makes people feel so funny when you talk about it. It doesn't really bother me. Well...that was until I started typing this out and I realized I do feel kind of funny talking about it. Hmmm...I'll need to figure that out. Or maybe it doesn't even really matter.

So, anyway..money...We have debt. Not a lot or maybe it is. Depends on who you ask! We don't own a house. Which makes me sad. We have been so close to buying and then something happens to set us back. I always wanted to have a house that my kids grew up in. Now half of my kids are adults. Life doesn't always go how we planned though, does it? We owe way more on a van than we should. Not even close to what it is worth. We kick ourselves in the butt for that one! We have a student loan, a credit card, medical bills and some other odds and ends. Debt.

For years we have kind of..sorta...not really followed Dave Ramsey's plan to get out of debt. We wanted to be all in but life happens and we found ourselves right back where we started...or worse. Well beginning today we are back at it. For real this time. Which is why I am typing it out! More accountability, right?

We have charts hanging on our refrigerator, apps downloaded on our phones and have even named our adventure...OBaR...or Operation Beans and Rice. Yep...we are that serious.

I am telling you all of that because...that is why I am making pizza for lunch today. I have not made it to the grocery store and we literally have no food. The dog ate 2 loaves of bread. All leftovers are gone. I was so tempted to order pizza. Really..you have no idea. But that would be silly since today is DAY 1! So I made pizza instead because we always have all the ingredients of pizza! :)

 And it was delicious and way better than bought pizza. So it was a win all the way around!


In other news, these two look like twins today! Sometimes I forget they are because the look nothing a like. They turned 15 over the summer. My babies are 15. I need babies but first get out of debt!


I love Christmas and I am excited for this coming year. I can just feel that its going to be good! If you want to follow our journey, stay awhile. Happy December!
