Three posts in 10 months -- that's pitiful. I'm shocked myself at my inability to keep up, even with my new job!
I've gotten a few emails asking about what exactly I do for my husband -- I think many people, myself included, thought I would have the flexibility to post again. But when I actually gave it some thought, I've been doing quite a bit, and most of what I do doesn't stop at 5 when I leave the proverbial office. In fact, I often work along side of my husband well into the night.
For those of you who don't know, my husband created and runs Cheap Stingy Bargains, a deal and coupon site. So here's a quick recap of some of my main responsibilities:
- My main job is to import coupons and coupon codes for my husband's newly created coupon page. Unfortunately, this has been slow going given some of the other stuff I've been working on (see below!!!) and the fact that I first have to add merchants individually,
- I've also been helping to update the HP coupon page with new HP coupons and deals,
- I edit all of the pieces that are submitted for our money saving articles page and correspond with people interested in writing for us, plus I write some of the tips articles myself and also post links to relevant news stories,
- And I am also the book-keeper/accountant/controller/penny-pincher/bean counter
I hope the above gives you some insight into what's been keeping me so busy. It's been quite a transition from "corporate America" to the land of entrepreneurship, but I am so happy and very grateful that I have this opportunity. And if for whatever reason things don't work out, I will gladly go back to outside work, knowing that I gave it my all.
As far as the boys, they are doing absolutely fabulous. Besides my husband, they are the loves of life and I don't know what I would do without them (have I said that before?!?!?). I hope to start posting some Lucas-isms again soon, as they are getting cuter and more clever as he gets older! Justin's vocabulary is just starting to explode, but he is more in the copy-cat phase, so it might be a while longer before I can introduce any Justin-isms.
So there it is. Yet another monster update. I sincerely hope this marks the last of its kind and I will be motivated, and have the time, to post some regular updates.
