I’m 4 days into my month long spending freeze and so far I am on track. I did spend $1.62 today, because I forgot to pack my chips to go with my sandwich for lunch. That’s ok though, all I have to do is get back on track.
In my post last week, I told you all it was about appreciating what you have. My family is everything to me and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for them. Today I spent time with one of the most precious gifts I have been given, my glamson Octavius, OJ for short.
I spend time with my glambabies all the time, but OJ is special. Each moment that we are granted with him is precious and priceless. OJ was born prematurely at 25 weeks gestation. The doctor’s gave him a 50/50 chance of survival. Today OJ is 7 years old, but those 7 years have not come without a fight. As a family, we fight with him. There are good days and bad days, but he fights and we fight with him.
OJ doesn’t live far from me, as a matter of fact, I can walk to his house. Today was such a beautiful day; he came out to see me and we spent some quality time reading. He loves our special reading time. Nanny read to him from his favorite Dr. Seuss book The Big Green Book of Beginner Books. We read the story Great Day For Up. As you can see, he got a big kick out of our time together.
Day 4 $1.62 spent. Not bad!
