So, I have been going without bread for at least a week now, actually 9 days since my last post and so far I have been going with out bread. Not really losing weight, but I do like the fact that I am thinking about what I am eating. So, I continue just to give up bread and have other stuff. Did have a bit of flat bread at dinner with the girls, but no biggie. What I am really focusing on now is the LIVING with less. Andrew and I have discussed the idea of living in the Dodge Sprinter and driving around the country. I just found another guy doing that basically the same thing, he and his wife are living in an RV, just one kid – 3 yrs old and selling books and other stuff online (Man vs Debt) basically living online. It sounds AMAZING to me! I just want to be free to do what I want to do with my family is that so bad. But we have to get there – its so hard to get there, I look around at all our stuff and try and figure out how to pare down (is that the right spelling?), basically reduce my things! I took some boxes to good will today, tried to sell some clothes at Buffalo Exchange, but no go – so off it went to goodwill. I guess the idea is that I need to do that all the time. With my stuff then my girls stuff and then the big stuff. Our goal should be to empty the shed completely – except for the things we would need to live then add our clothes and that’s all we take. One set of camping gear, bikes for all, camera gear (not in the shed – so that would be empty space for bins of things that can’t go in the shed but would come in the sprinter), everything else is just extra. I am looking around in my living room and although I love my freshly cut lavender so much I moved it so I could see it while I write, all the other stuff is just stuff. Would I die if I didn’t have it – no way. Would I be a little sad, maybe for a minute, but not if I was staring at something beautiful with the ones we love.
