- Mommy Making Money shares weekly specials, coupons, rebates, and tips on making your dollar stretch further. I don't even remember how I found her, but today I got 5 Breakstone's Cottage Doubles for $5 and got an instant coupon for $5. Net cost? FREE. You'll especially love her daily/weekly posts if you shop at CVS. If you don't, you might start.
- Another interesting blog led me to a recipe that involved making lemon chicken in my crockpot tonight. Big hit with the family, and EASY! Follow A Year of Crockpotting here.
- Through the blog review site Ask and Ye Shall Receive, I found the Cheek of God, where one man writes some fabulous prose. He talks about his faith, his family, and his obesity surgery. Pretty awesome guy.
- One woman who has seen more than her share of challenges is Heather over at Especially Heather. Again, I don't remember how I found her, but she has an incredible story to tell. Between her brain cancer and her daughter's autism/mitochondrial myopathy/cardiac issues, I don't know how she does it.
And if you're like us, anything indoors (like blogging) is much better right now than anything outdoors. I don't know what the heat index ended up being today, but it was high. And something isn't right with our A/C. It's nearly as hot in our living room as it is outside. Okay, well, maybe the outside has us beat by 20 degrees (F), but it isn't supposed to be 80 degrees in my living room!!! Argh!
Hopefully I can get someone in to look at it early in the week. The heat wave is supposed to continue.
One more tip for the night: Check out Bloglines if you want to organize all the blogs you read on a daily basis (THIS IS NOT A PAID AD!). I have had a few questions about that. Once I started reading 50+ blogs per day, I couldn't manage it all with bookmarks or even with feeds in my browser. So I logged onto Bloglines, got an account and subscribed to all my feeds there. So guess what? All of you get read (at least by me) every day. Hope this helps!
Peace (and stay cool) - D
