.big and small things.

I finally turned off the TV after I realized there wasn't much of anything worth watching.  That's the good and bad about having basic tv...not a lot of options, but it limits your time wasted if you just choose to turn it off.  Instead, I'm just choosing another medium to waste my time.  
First off Finn: (he's the first of many things)

Today was another rough eating day for Finn.  I don't think I would be as concerned if he was a little fatty, but because he's a little twig of a thing, I worry. Does this feel like this is the only thing I talk about anymore??? because it feels like its the only thing I think about anymore.  Feel free to give advice, or ignore my first time mothering is what it is.
If I'm hating his food aversion, I'm absolutely loving his dancing.  This kid boogies at the slightest hint of a tune, cracks me up. 
Secondly, Roy:
I never actually posted about this, but he did sell his first business early last year, and started another one....check it out here .  It seems to me that his mind is ever in the process of learning and doing new things.
We get lots more time with him now, because he served his time, and is done with the condo board.  No more 11:00 pm phone calls about light bulbs being out, and other such rubbish. 
Lastly, Me:
When life is going good, do you ever start to wonder, when something is going to stir it up?  For example, we've lived in our house for nearly 5 years and haven't had any major problems (unless you count the great ant invasion of 2011).  I keep thinking, "it's only a matter of time before something big like the water heater or the furnace go out."  I probably just jinxed myself for saying that, but that's what I think.  Life isn't easy for us right now, we are having to make lots of changes and adjustments.  We have, and continue to go through growing pains in every facet of life, but I feel like more then anything we have been abundantly blessed, and I don't want that to change.

The best cure for worrying about the future is do more to prepare.
1. Have a starter $1000 emergency fund.
2. Pay off all debt.
3. Then build up a 3-6 month (or more) emergency fund. That means 3-6 months of basic living expenses in a savings account.

Everyone should have some food storage put aside as well. If you want more ideas on this, just let me know. :)

I find that the more I'm prepared, the less I worry about anything going wrong, because I have money ready to go, just in case. Even the act of preparing, even if it's just a little every month, helps me feel at peace. I have faith that the Lord will bless me for my efforts.

As far as Finn? He will be fine! Just remember, if you're getting him to eat more than 2 tbsps a day, he's going to be ok. And he looked plenty healthy to me, not too skinny at all. :)
