Almost forgot, on Thursday we went to a birthday party for a friend of mine’s husband. He’s turning 30! Turning 30 wasn’t really the big deal about the party. The big deal is he is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday to have his kidney removed. He’s having his kidney removed because he is donating it to his mom who has been battling and searching for a kidney for years and years. She is already in Maryland at the only hospital where partial match transplants are preformed doing all the testing and preparing for surgery. Please pray for him and his entire family as they go through this scarey time in their lives. Here is a picture of him and his wife and their 1 year old daughter.

I am a wife to my wonderful husband and the mama to two beautiful girls adopted from China. We are striving for a simple life. We want to be able to provide ourselves with most of the items we need to survive; only buying things when absolutely necessary. We now strive to provide a portion of our family's food through organic gardening. I cook from scratch, live a fairly frugal lifestyle, and make my own non-toxic cleaning products. Please join us as we stumble toward a more self-sufficient and frugal life together. View all posts by Gretchen
