Live Below The Line Update: Hi everyone! This is Lindsey, Ryan's wife. Although Ryan is usually the one to post on the blog, I wanted to take a few minutes to chime in with my feelings about this random act. It has been 96 hours, and although the end is in sight (when I will be feasting on a delicious assortment of candy, greasy Papa Johns pizza, and MEAT), my stomach still aches for food. There have been many emotions that Ryan and I have both felt, but the feeling that has never disappeared is the emptiness in my stomach. Since the first day, I noticed a huge craving to eat everything in sight. Part of the problem with doing this random act and not actually being a person who lives "below the line" everyday, is although we purchased our groceries ahead of time, we still have many snacks, beverages, and other delicious goodies to eat in our house on a normal basis. So each day when I go to the fridge to grab a glass of water, or a hard-boiled egg, I look up and see the bag of Birthday Cake Oreos staring back at me. I don't mean to be humorous on this random act because it is sad to think that although we are only doing this for 5 days, to many, this is their reality day in, day out. It makes me realize how lucky and blessed my family and friends are to have the luxury of putting spices in our food, or the option of grabbing any snack at the grocery store without worrying about what it costs. I have never had to budget the amount of food I have eaten this closely. Of course, there have been times where I don't get the filet mignon at the grocery store because it's not on sale, but then again I have never hesitated at buying a bag of chips or candy. What I've learned from this experience is that we are blessed so much and should never take anything that we have for granted.
