you buy the food

I have decided to let the girls take turns buying the food for the week. The get the budget and I take them to the store and then they figure out what to get. Kylea went first on Sunday.
This week is easy since we do not have Devin or Shawn's daughter. She managed to buy food for all week and ended up with a dollar left.
Next week will be harder since she will have the same amount of money but will be buying for 6 people and two of them picky little kids.

That is all for now since I have ACL this weekend and will be getting ready for that.

Thanks for stopping by!

New Kid

Everyone knows that I am fixed and am not having any more kids. Well so is my boyfriend, works perfect right? Not exactly, seems you can have more kids without getting pregnant or adopting. And that is what I did.

I am now the temporary guardian of an almost 15 year old. I now have one in Elementary, Middle, and High school. This should be an interesting year.

The good news is she is a good kid and so far no issues. I know I will have her at least another 5 or 6 weeks and then I am pretty sure CPS will extend my paperwork with her. No need to rush things, plus I think her mom could use the extra time to get a place for them to live.

Side note - Kirsten went to school with Kylea last year, that is how we know her.
