Being frugal is not always easy. For the past three months, I have clipped maybe 10 coupons (which is nothing for me), have looked at store sales perhaps 4 times, and have done the shopping even less. If you know me or have read my blog for any length of time, you would know that these things are some of my favorite things to do. I LOVE saving money. However, for the past three months, I have also been experiencing almost constant nausea, vomiting and exhaustion which has made my usually frugal self kind of jump out the window (well, not completely).
I am so grateful for a wonderful husband who has been doing a lot of the shopping and cooking and has gotten me take out when I needed it. He is amazing. Everyone keeps telling me to simply enjoy this season of life, but I do wish I could do more to help. I'd really love it if anyone, especially moms, could give some input as to easy meals to make that were good when you were pregnant. I'm having a hard time eating meat right now and my stomach is very touchy, so it has really limited my choices and I have run out of ideas. This is our first child, so this is all very new to me! I am very thankful for this child and this season of life, I just feel so different. My husband is wondering when I'm going to go back to CVS! It better be soon because the toilet paper I stocked up on in October is almost gone!
Thank you for your input. I really do appreciate you all.

P.S. This is NOT my belly yet! I'm only 13 weeks! : )
P.S.S. Right after I posted this, I found this great post at Keeper of the Home. Isn't it great how your fellow bloggers can enhance your life???
