This would be the girl who's in charge of the timer each day ~ keep reading . . .
Okie dokie, I'm going to try something I've never done in three years of blogging, and I'm a little nervous about it to say the least.
This summer I've felt like I've been racing like a madwoman to keep up with the deals here on PPP, haul my kids around town to their summer activities, clean house, cook dinner, and really, just survive. It's been more than a little stressful, and my kids have watched their crazy momma get frustrated one too many times.
In order for me to enjoy a day (or even few hours) “off” with my family, I've stayed up 'til 2 or 3 in the morning before getting back up at 6 AM way too many days. I just
can't don't want to keep it up these last few weeks of summer (and hope you understand!)
Sooooo….. for the next two weeks instead of my kiddos and me struggling to just survive summer, I've decided to slow down around here just a bit. 😉
Between Shannon and myself we'll post no more than
five six? posts per day (yikes!) However, instead of getting tons of itty bitty posts, you'll get at least one big round up of deals each day.
My commitment to my kids is to spend no more than 2 hours on the computer (including managing Facebook, emails, and other general business stuff) through 8/12/13. My kids actually don't start school until 8/19/13, but I'm pretty sure by the 12th I'll be more than nuts!
My daughter already has a timer set out to track me with. (Seriously.) I'm just hoping to find some time to re-read a favorite book or two, try out a few new recipes, and maybe tackle a crafty project with a little help from my kiddos. (And did I mention clean???? Yup, that too.)
Here's what you can still expect to find here on PPP each day (except Sunday as always):
- All of our store coupon matchups (because Shannon is a rockstar. . . ) 😉
- Any store trip posts (we know you guys love those, and we love getting the deals too!)
- Back to school deals ~ as we're posting, those will definitely have a priority as we know you need those deals this time of year
- Possibly a recipe or two . . . we'll see how that goes . . .
- A daily (big!) roundup of the days top deals by 10 AM Central Time each morning
I hope you'll stick with us while we catch our breath for these two weeks. My husband is completely against this (he's afraid you'll leave and never come back), so can y'all please just do me a favor and prove him wrong? 😉
Shannon and I both absolutely love our work here to share deals with you all, and hope that you find it so helpful and that it really does bless your family. I'm so thankful to have such sweet readers, and know that I'm so incredibly fortunate to be able to work from home, save for our children's college funds, and give back some too.
Thanks so much for your patience these next two weeks . . . see you back in a bit.
