About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Our Weekend Recap

The stomach bug hit our house this weekend.  And it chose me early Saturday morning.  I was pretty much near the toilet or in the fetal position all day on Saturday.  I've had several friends that warned me it was brutal this year and they are right.  I wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy.  So far, I'm the only one that got sick.  Mike and the kids have stayed healthy which I'm so thankful for.  It made me nervous to think that my little kids might have to experience the intense stomach pain.  Mike was a very patient nurse, short order cook, and SuperDad the entire weekend and it reminded me of how blessed I am to have married him.  I was pretty much useless and if I wasn't near the toilet, I was on the couch binge watching Gilmore Girls.  

I didn't take any pictures this weekend since the storage on my phone is full and I haven't been able to download the pictures from it onto my computer.  Our computer is in the repair shop, our laptop that I'm using now has been sketchy, and we had to order a new boiler heating system today.  I'm not saying all this to grumble and complain.  It's just a reminder that adulting can be hard.  Weekends don't always go as planned.  But a positive attitude and the way we look at things can change everything.  I focused on choosing to be positive instead of being frustrated that I wasn't in control of the situations that happened this weekend.  I love this quote below:
