Its 230am and I am having hot tea.. not sure if its the smartest drink to have before I try to go to sleep but it just sounded good to me. I think the house being a little cold and I need something comforting. The evening was nice being husby took the boys golfing. We had some pet issues today that totally disrupted out day but we are trying to work through them. Needless to say.. I needed the brake.

However life has a funny way of tricking you sometimes and instead of kicking back.. I got busy on the computer putting up the new coupon pages with the weekly sales.. that took long enough.. but once I got them all posted, I realized they were not showing up in my google reader and I am pretty sure they are not showing up on the blogger dashboard for other bloggers to see.
I also noticed that things were messed up within the blog including the emails that were coming in..
It has taken hours upon hours trying to get things fixed. Things are still a mess with google reader and not showing up on the blogger dashboard.. I just hope it gets fixed. So far, I have done as much as I can on my end. If I notice the problem continuing tomorrow, I will be sure to dive back into it and see what I can come up with. I have republished many of the posts trying to get it to show up. That might cause you to get a few duplicate emails. The best way to deal with this is to bookmark this site.. still sign up for my daily emails.. ( I think they are working just fine.. ) and always click home to get to the all the posts. Sometimes Google takes a while to publish posts.. hopefully tomorrow they will show.
Blogging takes up so much time. It really does take work. I wish I had a some partners to kinda take the load off some days.. but for now, its only me!
The evening was pretty calm besides for the blogging issues! =)
BTW.. I have noticed a huge difference in the number of viewers on the full coupon post opposed to just the beauty steals and deals. I know a lot of information has hit in the last couple of days regarding couponing.. take your time and read through it all. The sale ads are long but if you look though and plan your weekly shopping and menus off the sale items.. you will save money.. add some coupons onto those sale items and you get get the best deal.. even possibly getting it free!! However, this is not just a coupon blog and it will never be just for couponing. This is s family blog and there will always be post about the kids, cooking, beauty, movie reviews, etc.. my life.. I do not extreme coupon nor do I promote it or recommend trying it. Who really needs 15 bottles of ketchup?? I think its unreasonable and just not worth the time. Instead I am just going to hit the sales.. add some coupons.. and see where that gets me with the new way I am organizing the coupons. If you want to take this journey with me.. check out my new coupon series ( 1 ) that talks about where to get the coupons and how to organize them. This series will be rather large but I think it will really help many of you cut your family expenses. I would love to hear if you are joining up so shoot me an email @ email@example.com.
Tomorrow we have some errands to run and then we are going to play in the beautiful broad river with the dog and the kids. Its nothing like a raging river.. its rocky and lots of shallow areas for the kids and dog to play in. It was a lot like the river we lived next to in Ohio. So it should be a fun day!
I have also been asked to join a big blogging circle on The Adventures of Newlyweds... Friday Letters.. that I have decided on joining. It will be another cute Friday post that I am excited to join in on! Check out her blog.. its really sweet!
I do have a couple beauty reviews coming up in the next in the next couple of days.. plus a lot of movie reviews coming up too so stay tuned!
Hope you have a blessed weekend!
