Bittersweet: Why I am taking time off.

Many of you may know we are expecting another baby. She was a surprise but we couldn’t be happier. Our 3 year old is going to be such an awesome big sister.

Yesterday we got some unexpected news that has changed the course of my pregnancy. I need to rest as much as possible for the rest of the pregnancy, along with other “fun” things ahead. I’m telling you this because I’ve decided to take time off from Frugal Day. I’m not going to be able to interact with my daughter the way I normally do and I want to spend as much time with her as I can before the baby is born.

Frugal Day has been a huge project for me and it’s really hard for me to walk away even for a short time. I’m sure you’ll see me on here from time to time but for now I have to focus on my family. You can always find me over at No Thank You Please for updates.

Life as we know it.

We’ve had a lot of change over the last three weeks. My sweet little baby started pre-school. We’ve been home together for almost three years. Sure she’s participated in play dates, soccer, and other activities but nothing prepared us for this transition. Our daughter is very sweet, shy, and loves to be around me. As I do her. But I know she really needs more social interactions with kids her own age.

After three weeks, yesterday was the first day that I left her. There were tears for both of us. I came home thinking I was going to get so much work done. Instead I sat and stared at my phone, waiting for the call to come back. I didn’t get a call. She was fine. When I picked her up,  she excitedly told me about her day. My heart just overflowed with love and pride.

I’m telling you this because I know posting has been hit and miss lately and I haven’t been able to respond to all the emails that have been coming in. I think we can expect that for a couple more week. But you’re all still here! In fact, our numbers are awesome and I’m thrilled. Without you, Frugal Day wouldn’t exist.

Thank you for continuing on this journey with me and our life as we know it!

A friend in need…

I debated whether I should post about my friend Brandi and her family here. I value each and every person that comes to Frugal Day, and I don’t want to take advantage of any reader. But I thought about it more, and I know this is exactly the place I need to post it. If you can help Brandi and Luke in any way during this incredibly tough time this holiday season, please do.

You can learn more about Luke and Brandi in this post I wrote on our family site.
