I just wanted everyone to know that I'm alive and well but just busy. I feel so guilty for not updating my blog regularly with pictures and stories of my latest bargains scored. I have not given up on blogging I just suck at it. Right now I'm all stuck into a work pattern that isn't working for me or my family. We are a commuter family of four with two cars between us and varying schedules add to that a 45 minute one way commute. It's tough and it consumes a larger portion of my time than I feel is mentally or creatively healthy. For several years we've been on a path of eliminating debt and living as simply as we can by necessity not so much by choice *smiles* which I guess means we're in a better position to weather these tough times than other people may be because I can live without a Starbucks Iced Coffee and the latest craft crap and not feel a single ounce of guilt for it *smiles* We're trying to save up to purchase a junker or as we call them in our house a hoopty! And I'm considering a return to my field as in career not plowing. But that's a post for another day... Right now I just want y'all to know that I'm still here, I'm just struggling to be a Wonder Woman. I'm reaching out for simplicity and embracing the abundance in my life with gratitude. And perhaps soon that will include another vehicle, if not then I'll enjoy the commute time with darling husband and dear son and stop worrying about things that I can't control like time to blog and decorate. So forgive me for not posting regularly, I'm trying, I really am. And anyone with hints or tips on tossing that golden lasso and having it all, please share!!!
