Knowing our finances are limited the first reactions we get is, “It’s so expensive”. Indeed it is taking a chunk out of our finances but to be honest it was that or have a complete meltdown.
For Anthony it’s more about weight loss but for me it’s about giving us time as a family, a chance to spend time together, to spend our nights reading and playing cricket (Aidan’s latest obsession), rather than planning meals, going grocery shopping, cooking, and washing dishes.
With three weeks until Aidan starts school and the baby’s impending birth, every spare minute is being used up sorting out the nursery, buying baby equipment and once again trying in vain teach Aidan his colours, not to mention getting in as many cuddles with Aidan as possible.
My recent hospital admission was a wake up call for Anthony and I. What we so desperately need is a holiday, a break from medications and feeding tubes and the mundane routine of our lives. Unfortunately, with Aidan’s medical needs and my regular hospital appointments a holiday at the moment is well and truly out of the question. So this is what Lite n’ Easy is providing us – a holiday of sorts. A much needed break, a chance to spend time as a family and a change from our everyday lives. It’s not a long term solution but it is giving me the break I need to keep on going through this very stressful time in our lives.
*For my overseas readers, Lite n’ Easy is a weight loss program that delivers meals to your home.
