Hi!

Interesting life you're leading.

About keeping life in perspective with the rest of the world.
That's what I try too, and what I teach my children.

They get enough.

But they won't get the post too-doo at christmas like at many other families.
We can't afford it, but I also think it's completely unneccessary to eat as much that you can hardly walk.

So I liked this entry very much, even though it's painful to see the difference between the families.
