I have had a few people ask where I am so I thought I would leave a note. I never intended to let it go this long without blogging. I have just needed to take a little time to step back and try to focus on things at home. You know how you look at your life and realize that something has to give. I was just feeling like I was drowning in life and trying too hard to blog when the most important things are to take care of the needs of my family. I have not coupon shopped in over 5 weeks- can you believe it? I made a one time trip to Walmart and have just sent my two teens for pick ups of milk and bread. I really want to sit down and organize my coupons and plan to start again next week. It started when I put all the coupons in my envelopes to go get the sales and then just didn't go to the store. Instead, I ate out of the pantry. This went on for about three weeks and I kept redoing the coupons and then finally just went to Walmart and planned to start again. I understand better how people who say that the couponing is overwhelming because the thought of having to sit down and reorganize it all is overwhelming to me right now.
There is nothing wrong,I guess, except the fact that when I looked up I was not happy with what I was becoming. I used to have supper on the table and the house in order. Supper was becoming what I could throw together and my house felt like it was consuming me. On top of that my kids were becoming lazy in their work watching me be lazy with mine. My main job is a homemaker and that has to be first. So, I plan to start back, but try to limit my time on the computer. I need to schedule posts and spend more time living life. I don't want to be a mom known for sitting on the computer all day. I have missed all the great friends I have made on the computer- my cyber friends. If you have any suggestions about how you balance it all please leave your words of wisdom.
I hope if any of you reading this are spending more time on the computer than you do in the tasks of caring for your home then you will take the time to examine and change that. God has blessed us with our husbands and children and given us the task to feed and clothe them and to make our home run smoothly.
