How’s everyone else’s week going?
How have you been?
We know we’ve been kind of slack on deals lately (especially on coupon matchups for stores). We’re sorry for that. We really are.
Here’s what’s been going on the last few weeks:
- Had family in town for Thanksgiving
- Black Friday (need we say more?)
- Cyber Monday
Which would be exhausting enough as it is, but then something else happened.
A family at church with 5 kids (ages 21 months to 13 years old) was abandoned by the mother over Thanksgiving. We volunteered to take the kids in before and after school (and the baby all day) while their father works. On Wednesday, we discovered they had the worst case of lice we’ve ever seen. It was awful.
So we had them move in with us.
No joke, we went from two kids to seven kids overnight. We did this so that we could start lice treatments on them here at our house, and have the time to also clean up their house without them spreading it back and forth.
Not only was this incredibly time-consuming, but it was also just physically exhausting. They went back home late last night. Just in time for one of our kids to start throwing up. All. Night. Long.
So this morning, instead of sitting and working on coupons and deals, we’re cleaning up vomit-encrusted sheets and feeding a 4 year old and two 1 year olds dry cereal, toast, and flat ginger ale. (The second 1 year old is the youngest of this family of five kids.) And Mrs. Crazy now has this stomach virus.
In the meantime, Mr. Crazy left for a business trip and will be back tomorrow night. He also has a final project due this week for his graduate class, as well as a final exam at the end of the week.
We’re a little overwhelmed.
So we will keep getting deals out as we can this week, and probably just post most of them in our Facebook group instead of making new posts on here for a few days.
And if our kids stay in PJs all day while eating Cheez-Its in front of Daniel Tiger, please don’t judge us.
