A reason to celebrate

Andy, the middle one and 17, got a summer internship with the library today. He's been volunteering there for several months now and was recommended for the job by his boss. This is some very good news in the midst of the panic we are feeling at being unemployed for four straight months now. We seriously have been cutting back just to stay afloat. $120 a month for food and paper goods for a family of four with pets is not a simple thing to deal with, so tonight we dine on a couple $5 pizza's from Little Caesar's (at least I hope they are no more than that with walk in), a soda and ice cream for dessert. Tonight we eat like KINGS! Well, maybe not kings, but when you've been eating like we have these past few months, it feels like a royal meal.
