Let the reader beware

Samantha : sometimes you feel like a nut.....
My journal is mostly my musings on life. More and more it is becoming about living a frugal life. Aside from that, I complain about my MIL, my family, the VA, and the universe in general. One of my greatest pet peeves that tends to come out online is that words have meanings, and it annoys me greatly when they are misused.

My husband and I have 5 kids, 2 adult girls, 1 teenage boy, an almost 3 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. Pretty sure that was poor planning on our part. The girls have been migrating in and out for a while, so we fluctuate from 5 to 7 people.

I'm a stay-at-home mom. In this economy, I have no right taking a job from someone who truly needs it to survive. I don't need to work. Besides, the income would barely offset the daycare expense.

I'm a life long stockpiler. I picked up couponing again 8/2010, and lost my steam early in 2012. I need to get back into it, if I can find the time. I mystery shop to bring in some extra cash from time to time, and because I really enjoy it. If you're checking me out because of my frugal musings in one of the comms I'm in, check out the frugal_u tag. I'm not a professional blogger, my posts are written like I speak. I hope you enjoy them. Ask if you have questions.

You are most welcome to friend me if you like. Every once in a while, I friend someone back. I do occasionally look at the journals of those who have friended me. I have found a few good friends online, and I'm always looking for more.
