Hello Again!

7:27 PM Posted by Centsible Mommy

Those of you who are loyal readers and have been checking out the Centsible Mommy blog frequently have probably noticed my absence these past few weeks and also the absence of new posts, deals, and giveaways. My family and I had been traveling for the holidays, visiting relatives! We had a great time! By the way, hope your holidays were wonderful too!!!!

Ours were perfect up until last week, when my husband (the only one of us that was employed-we were a one income family) was laid off of work unexpectedly. Definitely not the best way to start of a new year, but hey, that's life, right? For every bit of good there is usually bad to balance it all out. Or perhaps I just being a bit pessimistic due to my family's current situation! But I have learned that these things also have a way of working themselves out too, so I am not yet totally down about it although I am getting there. Therefore, much of my absence since the holidays has been as a result of me out job hunting this past week---still to no avail. The hunt shall continue, so please wish me luck!

I am so relieved to have some free time tonight to reconnect with all of you and bring you some more fabulous deals and some great giveaways---(I have lots of giveaways scheduled, so please check back for those soon) as I have missed blogging these past weeks and exchanging emails and comments with many of you!

I am glad to be back. Hope you all stuck with me, and that you'll stop by soon to check out all that I have scheduled this week and next. I have some great giveaway starting VERY soon! For those who grew impatient (totally understandable) and have bailed, sure hope you will stop by again!

Have a prosperous 2009! I definitely hope yours has started off better than mine has!

Thanks for reading and have a great evening!
Jamie

    I hope everything works out with your family as you work through this tough time. I'm also working through a layoff...and finding a new job hasn't been easy!

    Glad to see that you are back! Looking forward to your giveaways!

    Welcome back. Sorry to hear you are going through this but keep your chin up. I've been there for a year now but we are managing and the extra family time is priceless.

    Jamie just checked the blog and saw your bad news. I will be praying for you and Nick. Hope you get some good news soon. I don't know if they have hired anyone yet but Walgreen was looking for a night manager. Which wouldn't be great because you work midnights all one week and then you are off a week, but it would be a job. They pay pretty good. My cousin's husband is a manager there, I will ask him.
