Hi everyone, I use to post a lot on this board and then when it changed to the new format I disappeared, but i'm back now if i'm still welcome? A little re-introduction for the new ones or the ones who don't remember me. My name is LaDonna I am a 27 (soon to be 28) year old SAHM and I also substitute teach when I get called. I am married to my high school sweetheart Matt who is 30 years old, we have been married for 9 1/2 years. We have three children, Elizabeth is 9 and in the 4th grade and our fraternal twin boys are 6 (soon to be 7) and in the 1st grade.

I have to admit we have been doing pretty good staying frugal even while I was away from the board, but coming back now and reading makes me realize there are some more things I can do. There have also been a lot of changes in our lives. For instance we are trying to cook a lot more healthier and use lots of fresh veggies and fruits, etc. So that had our grocery budget go up some, but that's okay, i'll take that for our better health. I also had some major surgery 6 months ago with SEVERAL complications but I am fine now. It's kind of like my life is just now getting back on track again LOL. I am getting back into my menu planning and that helps a lot.

I am thinking about joining that $20 - $30 a week grocery challenge you guys have going on, but I honestly don't know if I can go THAT low and still keep our healthy, well balanced meals. We shall see. I am glad to be back!!

Hi LaDonna! It's great to see you back on the boards. I thought I was going to leave after the board change, but have gotten use to it now.

I'm sorry to hear about the problems with the surgery, but glad to hear that you are doing okay now.

Looking forward to "seeing" you around more!

Welcome back! Of COURSE you are welcome to hang out with us again. :) Go ahead and give the challenge a try. What do you have to lose? It's just for fun -- and a bit of an educational exercise, too.
