I hate starting any post by saying that I’m sorry for not posting for such a long time.
Because I figure that most people are so busy that they don’t even notice how often I post on this blog. And because sometimes my life is so busy that I could start several posts in a row with those words.
But it has been an especially long time since I posted, or have even been active in the Facebook group. And for that, I am sorry!
The funny thing about all that extra time the shut in brought us is that it just made me realize how many things I always want to do around the house and barn but never have time to do.
Well…I found the time for that!
But unfortunately, all those projects have taken away my blogging time.
Finding balance in life between family, projects, life, and work is tough for everybody, I think. I know it’s hard for me!
But I am still passionate about blogging and saving money.
After replacing 5 appliances in 6 months time (and buying another one because we needed it, so really 6 appliances) I should be an appliance buying expert.
In reality, I’m giving all the other appliances the side eye and begging them not to join the others in the old junkyard.
I saw a meme today that said (I’m gonna clean it up a little) “Being in quarantine is crazy. One day you’re cleaning baseboards with Q-Tips and the next day you’re in a bathrobe watching squirrels out the window. There’s no in between.”
And I thought “Oh! It’s not just me!”
(Is it you, too?)
Like you (probably), our family has mostly stayed home for almost two weeks now.
That’s made it pretty easy to save money.
If you can stay away from online shopping, you might be finding the same thing. Maybe you’ll even have time to develop new habits that will stick when life gets back to “normal”.
(Whenever that happens…and whatever that means!)
The plague hit our house for a good couple of weeks.
Ok, not the plague. Something that mocks the flu but doesn’t last quite as long. Ugh.
(Not Coronovirus, don’t worry.)
Normally that would be a great way to save money on groceries at least. (I mean, not an ideal way. But a way none the less.)
for some reason these kids are starving.
They have real fevers, lots of aches and pains…but they’re asking for crackers. And soup. And toast…constantly.
Well, I guess I’m glad they’ve kept their appetites up.
OH, and we also learned that if you order Sprite, Gatorade, chicken noodle soup, tissues, ibuprofen, etc. from Clicklist, they’ll still bring it to you. And they don’t even wear hazmat suits!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We have a simple tradition in our home to celebrate the day.
It’s so cheap and easy that you wouldn’t believe how excited our little ones get.
Read on to learn more about it (so you can do it next year…heck, do it this year. It’s so easy you can throw it together now.)
