It's the space issue. Oh , I've got plenty of bedrooms, more than enough bathrooms. Heck, there is even a playroom.
I don't have enough food storage space.
I just bought 100 pound of wheat. And by the calculations, that is not near enough to last me a year for my family of 4. We also invested in some water containers, you know, the big blue ones. We have two, and for our family, we need like 10. I've got cans of green beans, and cans of chili. I've got pears that I canned myself. I've got boxes of cereal, oatmeal, powdered milk. Sugar, flour, rice, and now a bunch of wheat.
My little cold storage room is too full to add another kid-
Of course if I cleaned my storage room out, and took all the toys I am hiding from my boys back, then I'd have enough space. Although if I did that, we'd need another play room.
See there just isn't enough space.
You understand, I just need an excuse not to feel too down on myself. This is the best thing I've come up with, so I'm running with it. It was helping, although, now I feel guilty that I don't have enough food storage.
