Wow! February is over! March is exciting for all of us… spring happens in the yard, Chuck’s birthday, the weather gets nice…. and I start feeling the pressure of SWIMSUIT season! Ugh! I’m gonna be ready this year. The last two summers weren’t bad either since I finally got serious in January of 09. Some of you remember that. It’s the summer I turned 40 and I vowed to not be fat at forty! I reached my goal the night before my birthday that summer! Whew!
Weird weather today but it ushered in a nice cool front that we’ll get to enjoy tomorrow. I had a wonderful run at both Kroger and Publix today! Publix was over $120 and I paid less than $20! Woohoo! If you have a Kroger around you, make sure you go to http://www.kroger.com/ and sign up for their coupon program. The card gets you the ability to load virtual coupons to your card and then you can use a paper coupon on top of that on the same item! Double dipping! I am going next week to help some of the teachers at school with their couponing and I’m so excited! Teaching someone to save money is such an eternal beneficial thing. You see, if someone is Christ-minded, and you teach them to save money, then in turn, they are able to give more to the cause of Christ!!! What a ministry! My supply closet has been visited by countless missionary families that get to raid it for free since many of the items in there were free to me, I can give them away to those who don’t do what I do. They they go do what I don’t do… like go to Liberia! What a wonderful circle we are all a part of in this life. This little hobby has been used by God over and over for all sorts of causes and I love sharing it with others. The book I’m reading right now (Personality Plus – Florence Littauer) outlines the four distinct personalities and the Sanguine loves to share, talk and have fun!!! Whenever I read an exerpt to Chuck and it contains some Sanguine-ness, he just laughs. Oh well!!! He definitely married one!
Off to bed now so I’ll be able to function tomorrow. The Sweet Repeats sale is this weekend and Chuck and I get to go help out tomorrow. It’s so exciting to see all that stuff change hands!
Goodnight and Blessings! Here’s my picture for the day today… this was a gift from my aunt and it’s name is April Remembered. I love it every spring it comes out to welcome in the season!
