I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.
My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.
As March wraps up I know most of us have had world events on our minds. It’s scary, it’s real, and it’s forcing many of us to live differently than we did a few weeks ago.
Depending on what part of this country you live in you may have been hit hard by the “virus” or it may have skipped your state almost without notice. Where I live, Michigan is seeing many cases in the Detroit area. Thankfully I live in a small town, without many people and no confirmed cases as of yet.
One of the first things I did after making sure we were stocked with essentials was make a list of everything I pay for as a monthly subscription and start canceling them.
First to go was extra tv channels, photo editing software, things pertaining to the blog, and many other things. All stuff we can do without. I was quite surprised to have eliminated $180 per month of things that were easily stopped from coming out of our account.
I pay so much with Paypal that it was easy to go into my account and delete things I no longer wished to pay for. After this crisis all passes I may pick them back up and I may not. Who know, it’s amazing the things we can do without that are not necessities.
With so many people without jobs I figured it was crucial to cut these expenses right away before another monthly fee was due.
My family is very blessed to have food stored up. When you live in the sticks like we do it’s normal to buy in bulk. I hate to shop for groceries and we have plenty of room for food storage so it’s nothing new here.
I’m finding it hard to stay busy. There are only so many things I can clean, or want to clean. No paperwork for our business as it’s shut down. Can’t go visit Grama Red for fear of her catching something. The weather’s still not nice outside. So I’ve been reading, eating (I may be 500 pounds before this is all over), planting a few vegetable seeds inside, baking, and doing plenty of Bible studies.
I know this isn’t the most uplifting post but it is the reality right now. Tell me how you are holding up, what you’re doing with your time, and are you having trouble finding food and supplies to outlast this crisis.
Until next time take care and thank you for spending the time talking till dawn with me today!
