This year has been professionally a GREAT one, but personally a CRAPPY one. I have grown in my blogging skills and I have also grown in my 9-5 job into a bigger and better position. As far as my personal life, I am still single and will continue to write about "Dating a Frugal Girl'. I had to learn this year that some friendships are not worth holding on to. Another lesson that I had to learn is that blogging can’t be my main priority. I love blogging, but the reality is that I have a 4 year old and a full time job.
For some people, blogging is a top priority. They may generate a little income, and they are pretty good at it. For me, blogging and letting people know about great deals is therapeutic. This may sound like a cliché, but “I sleep well knowing that a mom was able to save more money by using coupons”. I have learned that couponing isn’t for everyone and some of the dates that I went on this past year don't like them either. I have been on a few dates this year and was told that if I used a coupon on a date, they wouldn’t call me back. Let’s just say that they didn’t have to call me back. :-)
On Facebook, I informed my “LIKERS” that I was going to have a giveaway when I reached 1,000 blog posts and 1,000 “LIKES”. This will still happen. I was trying my best for this to happen by today, but real life once again kicked in. My daughter had a bad fever over the weekend and today is her 1st day back to school. As a single mom, when your kid is sick, you have to shut down everything else and rise to the call of duty. With my daughter being well, I am back in the swing of things and will continue to blog.
Now let’s thank a few people . . . .
