The Vote is in . . .

And 80% of the union members said yes to the contract and going back to work. The strike is over and none too soon. We were due to be without Health Insurance tomorrow and though we enjoyed having hubby home for the past four weeks, it is difficult to pay bills with no income. Now we can get back to a normal routine and breathe a little easier. One thing that we implemented during the strike and that I want to continue- was daily menus that included inexpensive meals. We became more diligent on our grocery budget and balanced eating. This is something that I should have done all along but it took a financial struggle to force it upon me - so something good can come from every tough situation.
