Pantry Challenge: Day 22

Today was just one of those days where the car just done quit on me. And then was fine after I had to call my son out of school. It made me cry and scream hysterically. I really hate car trouble, especially with two small children at 7:58 am in 12 degree weather. Seeing why I was crying now?

Anyway, I did not take pics of our dinner because it was mish mash again, my grandparents stopped by when I normally would have been "cooking" so I happily used the excuse to just not cook. We had freezer food, which I guess is within the guidelines of the challenge... right?

I almost forgot to post. Shame! But I have been working on house planning so I have been busy... and neglecting folding my laundry. I will make myself do it tomorrow before my mother makes another comment about how she can't understand my method of rifling through a basket to find clothing. If I had to only fold pants and t-shirts I would do it. It's all the itty bitty baby stuff that irks me, it takes forever!!! But I digress, I will be posting soon about said house. Hopefully I will be able to seduce the scanner to upload our floor plans. It is going to be a beautiful house... sigh. Prayers for us to get our modest amount of financing to build would be much appreciated.

Is anyone else doing this crazy challenge too? Speak up!


  1. Hi there...I'm Laurrie from Baked Lava. www.bakedlava.com and I, too, am doing this crazy challenge and it's all the more crazier because I live full-time in a 21-foot fifth wheel travel trailer. I signed up to follow your blog...it's fantastic. I have several of my readers and blog followers that are doing this challenge. We're calling it "Austerity"...not my original term, but one of my dear friends does this project every January and they look forward to it every single year. I read a couple of your posts and it looks like you're getting frustrated and I just wanted to tell you that you're doing an awesome job and to keep going with it. I hope to see you over on Baked Lava soon!!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I have been a bit tired and want to give up, but I will finish! Lol. I have a friend that lives in a 32' camper with her husband and 4 children! She has a blog too, americanfamilynow.org

  2. I am on my way to check out her blog, I'll tell her that you sent me on over...thanks!!
