It's Official.

Randy accepted the new position as an automotive claims adjuster for a bodyshop in Missouri. With that happy news, we promptly cancelled cable. As much as I'll appreciate my husband's sanity and happiness with a different job, we'll definitely be cutting back. Next on our list: buying a car.... or truck, rather. His father is selling us his truck for dirt cheap and no payment timeline in sight. *sigh* But I hate owing family, so we'll be making the payments sooner than later.

Other news? Randy and I have been successful vegetarians for over one week. Direct quote from Randy: "It's really not as bad as I thought it would be." So, with buffets and a weekend home to my parents' house out of the way, we're still 100% vegetarian. We did not cheat. No meat was eaten. And it feels good. Another reason it felt good to be a "no-meat eater" was Oprah's show today (I got to watch it just before the cable was cut off). Her show was all about being a consciencious eater, knowing where your food comes from, and making ethical, informed decisions. On the show, Lisa Ling (does anyone else remember her from Channel One?) went inside commerical chicken, pig, and cow farms and compared them to free range and cage free farms. At the end of the show, I felt like I was doing my part to increase the humane treatment of animals... now if only we could get more people on board. Hm.
