Finances are pretty tight right now. It is really, really frustrating to me. I recognize that I am being quite selfish. I know that there is a multitude of people who are in far worse positions than us. But, I digress...

I have gotten so many email offers lately with coupons and coupon codes to shop at some of my favorite stores. Just this morning, I have deleted Janie and Jack coupons, Gymboree. Gap, Joanns, and more. I long to use these coupons, but if you have no money, it does not matter how great the coupon is. Why does it hurt sooooo bad to delete these emails? It is taking every bit of willpower or what have you, to not attack my recently deleted emails, retrieve my beloved Janie and Jack email and hightail it to the Mall at Millenia and charge up my CC. Darn you SCPS budget cuts!!!

Encouraging Sign

I had to make a trip to the Seminole County Health Department yesterday and was encouraged by a sign that I saw hanging on the window. The sign read, "Please feel free to breastfeed your baby wherever you would like". The sign also stated that if you preferred to feed your baby in a private place, that place would be provided for you. As much as I hate spending any amount of time at the health department for reasons that I don't really want to delve into at the moment, I was glad to see a sign that actually encouraged breastfeeding in a public place.
