Day one-we made it.  Although this morning my sweet husband started to go out to grab me 44 oz of deliciousness.  Then he remembered he wasn't supposed to.  Haha!  We did have a huge Christmas/New Year's dinner at our house with my side of the family so it didn't really enter my mind.  But we start school tomorrow.  It can be difficult to stay home with the kids ALL DAY with no where to go.  Hmmm, library field trip?

But seriously, there are some things that I hope to get out of this 'experiment'.
-I hope to appreciate that we have food in our house.  I want to constantly remember that it is a blessing to have clean water and a working kitchen to cook in.  I read an article from CNN that stated the average woman in a third world country walks 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) a day to collect water.  Yes, I am blessed.

-I'm not sure if we will save money or not.  In theory, eating at home should be cheaper.  But of course, I have to buy more groceries.

-I'd like to see my jeans get looser but I won't hold my breath!
