I am now obsessed about couponing and all, like badly obsessed. I try to find a coupon for almost everything, I now have so many coupons I need to go for one of those couponing swaps. anyone know where I can find one? well, while I am at it, if you did not know, Kmart is doubling coupons up to $2.00. So, if you find $2 manufacterers coupons and buy something for less than $4, it is free!! yep, but the catch is, you have to have a K-mart rewards card (kinda like those bi-lo cards) and you can only buy 5 items per day and it is only for this week. Click here for the scoop. While I have been obsessing over my coupons and all, I realized that you can buy some stuff cheap from CVS.  Right now, they have a sale of pull ups  13.99 for the mega one!! and if you buy baby stuff worth $25, you get $10 extra CVS bucks back!  Makes 2 packets of diapers sooo cheap plus, if you have two coupons, it is now dirt cheap, did I say I was obsessed with this stuff…Happy Shopping, let me find my way to K-mart, I have a few free items I need to pick.

Under my Umbrella…

Today’s Fun Monday is hosted by Gattina!!  Her fun topic is Umbrellas!

As April is quiet a moody month here in Belgium, I thought about asking you :
Do you use an umbrella against the rain or too much sunshine ? Even if you don’t you certainly have at least one in your house I suppose. Take a picture and show us the one or once you use (or not).

Thank you for asking Gattina.  I think I have only used my umbrella once or twice since my hubby bought it for me.  In Kenya, I used my umbrella ALL the time, against the sun and against the rain.  Here, I guess we spend a lot of our walking time in the car or under a roof or something so there is no big need for an umbrella.  It is interesting that in Kenya, if it would start raining with no notice, all these people would show up selling umbrellas.  They would be shouting “mia mbili, mia mbili”  (Sh 200, Sh 200 equivalent of US$3).  This picture was taken for a team building project we were doing at work and it was raining so hard, I actually had to use my  Head over to Gattina’s and admire everybody’s umbrella…

Thoughts & Thanks

One year ago today, my mom was laid to rest.  People talk  about closure, I am still not sure what that really means, I would say it was just hard to see her being put in the grave and knowing that I would not be able to see her again on this side of life.  But you know what?  
Romans 6:8-11 says:
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

May the Lord reward all of you for your kindness, for all who made my journey to Kenya possible, for all your contributions monetary or otherwise, PTO days donations, for providing meals for my family when I was gone, for your prayers, visits and all the words of encouragement. I can never say thank you enough. When I think of this day, I especially remember each one of you and you are all special to me. Mungu Awabariki.
