Let's go to there.
In Washington believes the Baylor what's up.
I -- a quick question I have a we've been trying to go -- to the envelope system.
But we enjoy the convenience of debit card.
And but I have a three year old and I'm realizing that she'd like you need -- plastic card all the time the magic and I want her to -- cash.
But my husband and I can't work out you know -- -- out and the envelope.
Back at home or he's out and I have the envelope how how would he -- and -- Graham -- work assemble system.
I feel a little -- yeah.
Yet we have our own envelope I have my -- in my pocket it's in my money clip is not technically an envelope.
We call that just -- kind of blow money gas entertainment miscellaneous -- -- -- GMI.
And then Sharon's got the food envelope.
And so if she forgot the food envelope I can use a little bit of gas entertainment miscellaneous paper that -- I want it to with cash.
Or she could use the food envelope now when we first started.
I will tell you that one night we went out to eat and we were hard core.
Changing our lives.
And we forgot the food -- below.
We thought about driving through and hitting -- any time teller and replenishing the food envelope later.
Did we drove three miles back home got scared the baby sitter today after -- came -- -- got the food envelope turned around and went back out to eat.
And I'm convinced that little bit of extra effort to stay on the program.
In the initial stages of the program -- was twenty years ago.
And helped us to change our lives in other words we drove a stake in the ground -- -- were gonna we are going to stop what we've been doing we're going to do new things.
And now today would we go back home after forty years and is now we live with a little more.
Fluff in the system than that today.
But there's something about when you start now you need to be -- -- very disciplined and very hard court and so I will tell you that week one time.
Drove back home instead of hitting me in time tolerance and will replenish later -- cheat and work it out.
Work out -- the actual round.
We drove back home and -- it's weird that twenty years later I actually remember that I can tell you where they come teller was our -- tell -- which -- who are and where we live at the time.
It's -- it in the my conscious and in in my memory.
Because it created life change.
To engage in and slightly uncomfortable but new.
Task that represented behavior change.
So something about that that's very powerful and you may want to consider within a reasonable level how you're going to.
