A couple of weeks ago, I took an awful 911 call involving an infant the same age as Georgie. Normally, by the time I get home I can hardly remember the calls I took that day. But, as a new mommy this one hit me, more like blind sided me, much differently. So, after taking some time to think, pray, and crunch some numbers, I am very very excited to have a new position working 24 hours a day making a modest salary of $0.00... I am officially a full-time stay at home mom!
I cannot express how thankful I am for this opportunity. And, for all you working moms, you are the bomb dot com. That's right, my very short time attempting the juggling act of work and home gave me a new respect for those who successfully do it week after week.
I've seen a common thread of money saving tips on many blogs. I've always been a bargain lover, and with my new job :) I plan to embrace my love of bargains even more. So, please do not hesitate to point me in the direction of savings. I welcome your help! Yesterday, after taking the time to clip coupons before grocery shopping, I was quite disappointed when upon returning home and looking at my receipt I realized the cashier did not scan over half of them! Serious bummer. She did muffle "these store coupons never want to go in." I of course assumed she would ignore their desires and force them "in" the system. However, she was apparently very distracted by the industrial size jar of pickles that was accidentally dropped by the cashier behind her. Oh how I do love a pickle. But, oh how an entire jar of them spilled on the floor reeks like you would not believe! My nose hairs are still burning.
I'll be back soon with pictures. After all, what is a post without a pic...
