Well, in case you didn't read the news over on the FM Cheapskate Facebook page or gather by my abrupt absence, our precious little girl has arrived! Little Emily was born just over a week ago. We are so grateful to the Lord to have Emily here and doing well. As you can see, big sister Katelyn also loves her very much!
Feeling somewhat miserable, I was bound and determined to have the baby by the end of that week. I decided to get started canning and freezing applesauce and sliced apples, which I'd been trying to get to all of that week. I figured getting going on a project like that would certainly cause the baby to come. It must have worked! My water broke late Friday night and she was born on Saturday 10/1! Emily is doing great, and aside from being a bit foggy from the newborn schedule, the rest of the family is doing good as well.
As promised, I am easing back into store deals this week. Look for some Cash Wise deals later tonight and SunMart deals Tuesday. (That might be optimistic - we'll see how life plays out in the next few days... :) I'll work my way back to posting other deals, printable coupons and more over the next few weeks. For now, it's time to begin heading back to the real world. I've missed you all!
