Just wanted to write a quick note to let you all know that I will be back to posting regular updates tomorrow….my dad’s been visiting the last few days, so we’ve been busy working on getting organized at my house (since I have extra help watching my two active little ones! :) ). Also, my husband was in a major car accident this morning on his way to work (he was rear-ended while stopped at a light by a large pickup truck going at least 40mph on our 2 lane highway). Praise the Lord he is safe and only has some minor injuries (pulled muscles, whiplash, and bumps/bruises). It ended up being a 5 car pile-up (w/my hubby hit first), but thankfully everyone escaped with fairly minor injuries. We are so grateful for God’s grace and protection for everyone involved!!
Unfortunately our Toyota Camry is now totaled, but boy, it sure held up well considering he was squashed between 2 big Ford trucks. My hubby and I have always been firm believers in Toyota’s and this only strengthened our love of Toyotas!! It has been such a great, reliable car (even high in miles and over 10 yrs old)–and even in this accident the four passenger seats remained intact –while the hood and trunk were completely squashed!! And the airbags worked great!! So, that is my little plug for Toyota–my husband is even thinking of writing Toyota to let them know how impressed he was with the car for how it handled the high impact of the collision!!
So, there you have why I’ve been missing from the deals the past few days, but I will be back to looking them up later tonight or tomorrow so I can get you caught up! :)
P.S. I am having SO much fun reading all your frugal ideas!! Alot of them are ones that I love to do, too, but I’m also learning about some new, great ideas that I will definitely be trying out. I think I’m going to put them all in a post when the giveaway’s finished, so it’s easier to see all of them!
