Awe…..this one is gonna sting a little. I have decided to stop blogging. I have enjoyed writing these posts the past few months. I decided to take this past weekend off from blogging…….and I enjoyed that, too.
I started this blog out of a desire to be more accountable with my frugal journey and to try to inspire others. I have learned a lot over the past few months. One thing that has bothered me….I am checking my phone more often than I should. Remember….I’m the girl with no social media accounts?
There is a flip side…when I look through the stats from my blog, I see that sometimes hundreds of you view my page in one single day☺️! I visualize you all standing beside each other in rows and rows. I try to conceptualize how many souls cared to spend time looking at my page. This leaves me humbly in awe❤️. I can see all your different faces and cultures within the rows and rows. You looked at stuff this plain, old girl from the Southern country thought might be worth writing. I also love the comments I get from some of you. I look forward to the things you have to say. I have learned things from you in return….That….that, my friends….I know I will miss😟.
Just for a little background…I have three kids..all girls. My oldest is 23. I worked as a nurse when she was growing up..sometimes 2 to 3 jobs at a time. This was a mistake that couldn’t really be helped. Bills had to be paid and I was a single mom, part of the time. I regret not being able to be home more and missing some school functions🙁.
I now have two small kids and my oldest daughter is married with her own child. I don’t want to be preoccupied with what seems like repeating old habits. I am letting a few things go to focus on important things. This blog doesn’t take up that much time by itself. Maybe I am just being selfish, but I don’t want to look at a screen much this summer. If you don’t learn anything else from me, please know that you can’t get time back. The decisions you make now, you may regret later. Of course, this is a simple life lesson that we have all been told. I’m simply saying it again in case you are like me…..and had a hard time getting it the first time around☺️.
Thankfully, I am able to very involved with all my kids and my grandson. I am proud of who my oldest daughter has become and I enjoy watching the others grow. I can’t take any credit for my oldest daughter…I think she is just naturally a loving mommy.
I still work alot at our business and I volunteer my nursing services at our local free clinic when I can. This still keeps me pretty busy, yet has enough flexibility that I can pick up the kids from school each day and attend special functions sometimes. I ate lunch at school with my kids just last week.
If you have never went to school and listened to young kids conversations while eating lunch, I highly recommend it. It’s very enlightening and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Also, if the kids get sick, I can stay home and cuddle them while not being afraid of getting fired or losing money…. For this and so many other things… I am blessed.
I want to thank each and every person that has viewed my blog… even just once…and those of you who have stuck with me daily like rusty nails🙂…. I really love rusty nails!!! I wanted to try this blogging thing and I am going out feeling like it was a success.
I hope I have given you all as much enjoyment as you have given me❤️. If you need to contact me about any of my previous posts…or just want to say Hi….I would love to hear from you, so feel free to email me.
