I've been thinking a lot about how God has been providing for me and my family. There are times when I wonder how the bils get paid when I'm only working 10 hours a week (instead of the 40+ hours I used to work before Joshua was born). I am SUPER blessed!
So, why coupons? I'm not sure if I love the thrill of a good bargain combined with savings I get from using coupons - which often times I am able to snatch goodies for free or almost to nothing. OR, do I enjoy the process of clipping, organizing, and "collecting"? My stash of coupons are slowly finding itself in my new coupon binder. And I'm feeling better and better about it. Seriously, though... I haven't figured out why I'm into this couponing deal. I recently told a friend that this whole thing feels like a fun "game", while getting the things I need from the store. "So, how much can I save today?"
That same weekend I finished a huge order of shirts I received from my brother-in-law. My sister-in-law is having a family reunion and they've asked me to screenprint 60 shirts with their family name(s) and THIS on the back:
Families are like fudge...
Mostly sweet with a few
Haha... I thought it was so clever. I wish I had taken some pictures of all the shirts I screenprinted! It was so fun! (By the way, I'll be more than glad to help anyone out with their tshirt needs... that was so fun and I would love to do that for you, too. Just contact me or leave a comment for my rates)
So, between hosting the coupon workshop, working on 60 shirts, and caring for a very active 1 year old (who's walking, crawling, falling, climbing, etc...), I've been fervently praying for a few things:
- my younger brother was diagnosed with Type2 Diabetes on Monday
- a group from my church down in Guatemala for the week
- a family who lost everything after a tragic fire - click here for ways to pray/help them financially (THANKS, Anita! You're a true blessing!)
So, that's what I've been up to lately... And stay tuned... I'll be posting my summer reading updates.
