in A Day in my Life,All

I’m not even sure how to start this story because I’m so fuming mad. So, I live in central Alabama. We have Windstream for our internet service and it’s crap. It’s been crap for a long time.  (But until recently, there haven’t been a lot of other options for our area.) In fact, it’s been so crappy …

in A Day in my Life,About Me

This little guy is awesome.  I’m biased, because I’m his Mom.  But he’s still the most awesome 5 year old I know.  I love the conversations we have.  His brain is CONSTANTLY churning.

This is my little “Bug”.  He is four years old.  Isn’t he adorable?  I’ve been couponing since he was about 8 months old.  He’s been with me for about 97% of my shopping trips.  At two years old, he could recognize “CVS” and Walgreens, which he called the “W store”.   Not to be confused with …
