yes! we did it!

CPI’s first semester at Texas A&M University is totally paid for! We owe nothing and CPI did not have to take out a loan. God grant that we can continue as we have begun.

Every weird look from strangers, bruised knuckle and cut on my hands; every banged-up shoulder, sore foot and twisted ankle in pursuit of this goal is unimportant compared to the unbelievable feeling of exhilaration and relief that my child does not face the burden of paying off loans for the classes he took this semester. With the help of God, I will continue and ensure that he takes a bachelor’s degree in his chosen field unencumbered by debt.~~TSG

marching on

The last of this month’s payment to CPI’s college was made today. Of the total amount we paid this month, $74.00 came from metals I found and scrapped and $80.00 was from eBay sales of things I found. This is hard work, but the payoff is worth it. Hope y’all’s day has gone as well.~~TSG

well, that was fast

IRP has gone home. We are all very grateful for the successful surgery and quick recovery (at least enough to go home). Her pain is under control. She will probably miss three weeks of work. Thanks for your continuing prayers!~~TSG

a really good day

IRP’s surgery went very well. She is in a room, her pain is a 2-3 and she is getting to eat solid food. A big thank you to all who prayed and sent well-wishes!

This week, I picked up $2.45  walking around the campus. Into the Found Money Fund with it. The Found Money Fund is a box made by FMP in which I keep the change I find. Usually, I save it all year and then spend it on Black Friday. We are up to  $6.62  so far this year.

Finally, when I went out to get the mail, there was a HUGE package on the front step. Inside was a prize from Woman’s World; an Italian cooking set with an All Clad spaghetti pot/strainer insert, an All Clad sauce pan, three Prego sauces, a spiral slicer, a collapsible strainer and a walnut spaghetti server. FMP really loves All Clad and we’ve been buying it piece by piece. This really ups our game. Thank you Woman’s World!!!

IRP

Tomorrow, IRP goes in to have the hernia caused by the earlier operations corrected. Please pray that all goes well and that this is the last surgery. Thank you!~~TSG

in which FMP joins the scheme

I found $1.08 recently around campus. Yesterday, FMP used his day off to run some errands for his boss and brought in $100. Thank you, dear!
