Um, HELLO! McFly, you in there?!?!

The Walmart Family are worth $144 Billion ($144 THOUSAND MILLIONS) This year the government is giving them back $6 BILLION in tax breaks. That is $6 THOUSAND MILLIONS for one family in tax breaks.

picture of Walmart family saying they'll get $6 billion, yes, BILLION, in tax breaks this year.

Thanks, Wall Street and Friends who MAKE THIS SHIT HAPPEN while children are hungry RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.
CHILDREN OF THEIR EMPLOYEES who make so little, they qualify for SNAP(food assistance). Call me crazy, but if you’re working a 40 hour work week, you should get paid well enough to not need SNAP.
And, AND… How much food would that buy?! And they already have a fleet of semis that could take food to shelters and missions all over the country!!!
They don’t even have to do it because of philanthropy or altruism… It would actually be fantastic publicity!
I know we’re not the only family that is trying to break the Walmart habit. Yeah, we have to make more stops, but it feels like we’re trying to do what we can on our little footprint even though it seems like a drop in the ocean.

One of these days, I’m gonna flesh out these status updates. Facebook and Twitter has made me lazy and I need to get back to really writing. 

Yesterday, I worked from 10am-11pm on my website.
I went to bed and couldn’t sleep so I got back up and worked from 12am-3:30am.
Still couldn’t sleep until around 6am. I’ve gotten ZILCH done today
(I did manage to shower, brush my teeth, and put on clean clothes)
and I’m almost okay with that.

This is a very real Saturday morning for us.

This is a very real Saturday morning for us. Tom got up early, I slept late, we’re chatting about last night (henceforth to be known as Jenny Lawson night, that which shall live on in family lore), there’s a chicken among us, and Tom has James Taylor on in the background.
