How about an update?

Wow, 15 months has gone by since I last blogged.  I feel like I blinked a few times and the months just flew by!  I am hoping to get back into the groove of things and start learning and sharing some fugal ideas!  First off, here's a little update on our life.

I'm still a SAHM for the time being.  That may change in the next couple months but we can talk about that later.  My husband is still working full time and providing financially for our family.  My oldest boy is married now and has spent the last year in South Korea, he is a Specialist in the United States Army.  My second oldest son graduated from high school this year.  I now have 2 adult children!  Wait, does that make sense?  He is still living at home and is currently working full time.  Our 2 younger boys are very active, between sports and spending as much time as possible with friends we are constantly on the go.  They are 9 and 10 years old and will be entering 4th and 5th grade this year.  Our youngest Emily, is 5 and will be attending Kindergarten this year.  Anyone remember when she was born?  This will be the fist time in 11 years that I don't have a child at home with me!  Eeek!

Learning the frugal life.  I definitely feel like I need to re-learn how to be more frugal.  We have straight up gotten lazy this last year.  Not blogging, and keeping myself accountable has really been harmful to our budget.  We stopped paying attention to our spending.  Before we knew it more money was going out then coming in.  Thankfully we caught on before we got too out of control.

I am still gardening and we are still backyard chicken owners.

I'm excited to get blogging again and hopefully get back on track with our frugal living!
