Wow what a crazy day! Everyone was home today, husband had some extra time off thanks to the holiday. So we did some massive cleaning! Got the carpets cleaned got all the bedrooms dusted and all sparkling, bathrooms are done, played some UNO with the kids before husband left. Over all it was a wonderful day and a perfect end to a wonderful weekend!
But there was some emotional ups and downs to. My friend over at Coffee Matters helped me out with one of them. See, I was tempted to stop doing this blog yesterday. I felt like it wasn’t my own, like everything I posted there was someone out there posting it as well. I have had problems with them in the past and it just seems like everything I do, they have to do too (in fact I was/am hurt when they started a blog focusing on the same things as me as well). But then my dear friend and my husband both reminded me— It is my life and my thoughts and no one can take that from me. It reminded me why I started this blog- To help others and give others a source for quick easy budget friendly recipes and to share my adventures. I am not doing this for money, I am not doing this for the freebies or the giveaways and to waste hours on end on the Internet looking for them instead of playing with my kids. And as my husband says- why stop doing something I have passion for and love?
So I promise I will try to make this blog as unique as possible. I will still share stories about my kids and of course you will still find the savings and the recipes and the giveaways. But it will be more of my opinions as well, it will also feature another passion of mine– photography. If there is something you have always wondered and don’t have time to research it, let me know!
