We've decided to pull Maddie from preschool.
It hurt my heart and my head.
David and I went back and forth about it but in the end we both knew it's for the best.
We were managing decently enough, (and by that I mean I'm lying hardcore)
We had food. Not enough-David constantly acted like he was starving to death. (We didn't have snacks or junk food so it was the end of his world). Our bank account went $.05 negative and Netflix emailed me to say there was an issue with our card. Yea.
We also took into consideration that next year she'll be going to preschool through the school system and not through base like she is now.
Plus the idea of not really doing Christmas killed us.
I had all kinds of Pinspired projects ready to go then realized I couldn't afford to do them.
We sat Maddie down and talked to her about it and she's okay with it.
We considered putting her in half day but realized by the time her name popped up on the list, it'd be about March anyway and Fin's summer vacation would be coming up and I wouldn't want her in school while he's not.
Plus, she misses mommy/Maddie time while Owen naps.
So now that we've finally decided, I'm okay with it. I'm glad we've made a decision.
I did up our next meal plan/grocery list and David'll be more pleased.
Maddie'll be excited to spend her days with me again decorating for Christmas and helping me around the house.
We'll be less stressed out with money actually in our bank again.
I hate money.
We're still not as great as we once were thanks to the army and all that mess but this is enough to help us actually live/make it again, thankfully.
Since they require a two week notice that I'd forgotten about, she'll be going until December 10th which is still a good chunk of change but at least it's a bit prorated.
So yea, that's that update.
In case you're clueless go read this post then this post.
But I sure am excited to have that little mess of a child home with me again.
