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.
We’ve reached the point in this stay home order where even introverts are starting to feel a little stressed out.
Because at first, it was actually kind of nice to have your schedule cleared for you.
I enjoyed having a chance to just be home with the family. Nightly suppers around the table have been easier to pull off.
But with so many things closed now, it’s become stressful for a lot of us.
Maybe you’ve lost your income and are having trouble getting through the maddening unemployment phone line.
Your teens are so stressed over trying to keep up with school work while missing their friends that they are making you crazy.
(Yes, of course you love them. And sympathize. And kinda want to lock them in their room for just a little while.)
The younger kids don’t really understand what’s happening, but they know that everyone seems worried. And they show that they are worried by whining every minute of the day and clinging to you constantly.
Poor kids…and poor Mama (who is pulling out her hair).
Extroverts are ready to see people again! And introverts are ready to have the house back to themselves, even for just a little bit, again.
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.”
I'm Jamie, and I believe that you can build your savings, even when life is frustrating. Learn more.
