November 13, Thankfulness and Grateful Post. Today I am thankful for having the warmth and stability of a home. We have worked hard to get our home 6 years ago and have made it ours. After "living the white picket fence life" then starting from nothing, to living in an apartment in Baltimore, then relocating to Hagerstown to finally living where we are, I am proud to say that everything I/we have is what we have worked for. I always said, our house may not be the biggest house in the world, or the newest, "its our little crooked house to go along our little crooked life", but what we have in it, we have made and done ourselves. From ripping up carpet and replacing it with hardwood floor, to redoing the upstairs bathroom, to now working on the downstairs bathroom, putting in a patio; taking out the drop ceiling in the living, replacing it with a new ceiling and ceiling fan, the list is endless. It is an accomplishment in itself. We love the fact that everything is a work in progress, and keeps progressing from what we changed 6 years ago. For that I am truly thankful for all the possibilities and new ideas we are bringing together, there is a big laundry list of ideas yet to be completed including the kitchen, but what better way to accomplish these things then to do them yourself. I love my little life, my family and my "better half" to make everything all worth it. For this I am truly grateful!
I still am still being as frugal as I can be, i'm going ont he 4th year of making my own detergent, i've also made my own fabric softener for the past several years a recipe I have tweaked a bit, I still make homemade gifts for my friends/coworkers to save money, and i'm also a couponer and that is my new obsession......
