Week 5: A week of firsts

It’s Sunday morning, a bit after 7, and I’m snuggled in bed with Jimmy and Cassidy as she munches on Joe’s O’s and watches Moana for the 17th time. It’s freezing! Well, it’s only 51 degrees in here but the furnace is running and warming things up. It’s been getting down into the 40’s at [...]

“We’ve gotta sell the house!”

My husband Jimmy, was walking home from a meeting with our banker—a meeting to discuss refinancing our house. The banker had looked at our finances and confirmed our thoughts—we were spending too much on our property. Even though Jimmy works seven days a week, no matter which we stretched the money, it just wouldn’t cover everything.
