We only have 25 more days until we move to Haiti, which means 12 more days in Bellingham. In other words, we only have to cook dinner 12 more times before we move. For the past week or two we have been really rationing out our food supply. Normally I don't plan meals until about five minutes before we begin to make it, however, last week I did an inventory on our meat selection to figure out exactly what meals we will be eating. We are trying to finish up everything in our fridge and pantry with out having to buy any extra supplies. This means there are somethings that we are trying to use a lot of, such as bisquick, can foods, boxes of cake mix, chocolate chips, various condiments, spaghetti noodles, etc, while making foods such as flour, sugar, potatoes, chicken, tuna fish, etc. stretch as long as possible.

My strategic planning keeps getting bumps thrown in it as people keep asking us to go out to dinner for birthdays or going away parties, plus we have a few gift certificates from Christmas that we need to use up! Don't get me wrong, we definitely like to go out to eat, but we are trying to get rid of as much of our supplies as possible. Our fridge, freezer, and pantry are emptier than they have been in the two years that we have lived here. We will often open the pantry door, and just stare for a few seconds before we realize that we don't have any snack foods left and then go back to what we were doing previously.

Whatever we don't eat or use between now and then will be inherited by our parents! I'm sure they will both love getting half used jars of ranch, ketchup, jhonny's, syrup, etc! Oh the joys of moving!!

On another note, I only have to go to class two more times for a total of 10 hours and then I'll be done with college! 2 more presentations and 2 more papers until I am done!! So ready!!!
