Couponing is ADDICTIVE!!
I have been a moderate couponer for a long time. However, in the past two-three weeks, I have actually paid attention to the amount of money I’ve been saving us, and so has Del. So, now we’re making sure that I get as many coupons as I can that will help us out. There are so many websites that give us coupons. There are so many things that you can get for free or really cheap. It may be time consuming, but so is working hard to earn the little bit of money that we all make now a days. We have to fight back any way we can to survive.
This baby s kicking my tail end. However, I know she/he will be more than worth it when they are born. I’m eagerly counting down until the day that they arrive. Del is suppose to be building another room onto our home so that I can have a true nursery for it. I’m trying to determine how I want to decorate it. I am praying that someone will arrange a baby shower, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt my mother-in-law would do it if she felt well enough and knew who all to invite.However, time will tell if that happens. If not, I know the baby will still have everything. I just want to rejoice with my friends over the baby coming more than anything. Plus get the chance to share parenting stories.
I’m debating on breast feeding. I tried to do with my daughter, but it caused her to have jaundice. So, I didn’t even bother with my son. However, I know this will be the last time I’m pregnant. After this one comes, I’m getting m tubes tied!! So, I have made it clear that I want to be able to stay home with this baby for the first year at least. Which, so far, it looks like my wish will be more than granted if everything that is going on comes to pass.
God’s timing has me seriously wondering. I’m trying to figure out where he’s headed with me. He opened the doors very wide for me to get hired by a wonderful company, and now I’m pregnant, and none of my pregnancies have allowed me to work for a long period of time. However, I’m praying hard that will not be the case now because I truly do want to work for this company with a passion. I’m looking forward to going into work. I will give it everything I have while I’m there. I know me, once I get attached to place, I’m never eager to leave it when it’s a good company. I was originially offered a different position but I turned it down for fear of not having enough information and training to do the position justice. Maybe, God did want me to take that position and he was going to give me the rest of the tools I needed??? I wonder if that position will be offered again in the future??? Only time will tell. I will be open to God’s leading. I do, however, hope it includes me being able to continue to be an active part of my kids and husband’s life!! I treasure my time with my family very much. I will not work myself to death again and put them on the back burner! I made the mistake to much already in the past.
I just have to take my dreaded finals for this semester. I will be so glad when I’m out of these classes. I’m honestly praying that I pass them with a semi-decent grade. These were two hard classes, and I regret taking them both at the same time. Of course, all of my current classes are getting harder and demanding more from me. However, that’s what college is all about. I do want to be the one to take over running our family business when the time comes, and make certain everyone involved gets a fair paycheck and fair treatment and all the benefits that deserve. However, that will be left up the members involved whether or not they will trust me with that position. We’re going through so many changes right now, it’s rather scary.
All the changes have come at once around here. That’s nothing usual though!! It always comes in spurts. Of course, isn’t that case in everyone’s life???
Well, I just got asked and given hugs and kisses, if I would please cook dinner now. It’s hard to resist that loving request from my little one. Especially when he rubs his belly and says, “I’m starving. I want some chicken nuggets please.”
I hope that this finds you doing well.
